4 Tips to Beat the Heat

Finally! Summer-like temps have arrived.  Around this time of year, we always feel the need to change up our makeup routine in order to withstand hot days and dips in the pool! (We hope!)

Here are a few of our favorite tips to staying fresh and dewy from morning ’til night.

  1. Opt for a tinted moisturizer vs. foundation. Often times foundation is a bit heavier, adding an extra layer to maintain. Be sure your moisturizer has an SPF of at least 30! We love NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30M.A.C Lightful C Tinted Cream SPF 30, and SUPERGOOP! CC Cream Daily Correct Broad Spectrum SPF 35+.
  2. Use waterproof liners & mascaras. We know they’re a little tedious to remove, but waterproof liners & mascaras will keep you looking as cool as your frosé. No raccoon eyes here!
  3. Make braids your go-to style. This is a super easy way to keep your hair out of your face and appear put together in the sweltering heat. A couple of our favorite tutorials: Crown Braid Tutorial and 1/2 Up & 1/2 Down Braid Tutorial.  Want to try one of these, but not a DIY kinda gal? Our stylists are only a click away! Book a dry style + braid and let the pros handle it.
  4. Let your lips do the talking. Because nobody wants to wear a full face of makeup in the hot sun, you can scale back your application significantly and just add a pretty lip for the perfect polish. We love a combo of color and moisturizing therapy like Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment (sheer pink or translucent), Rosebud Perfume Co. Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm (the perfect shade of pink), and NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm (peachy pink with golden shimmer).
