With summer quickly changing from a source of warmth to a scorching ball of fire, it can get really difficult to keep all the layers of makeup on. Add to this, the ever changing trend that is confusing enough to keep you standing in front of the vanity mirror and wondering just what exactly should you be doing with those eye shadows and lip glosses!
Firstly, take your skin type into consideration as that considerably influences the cosmetic and skin care products that you should be picking up. The dreaded oily skin can spell doom in summers as people with this skin type are bound to sweat profusely on the face, which further increases the oil secretion eventually leading to breakouts.
For those with an oily skin, always opt for gel based products that does not make the skin greasy or clogs the pores with dirt and grime. Also, often rub cubes of ice on the face, especially before applying makeup as that would numb the pores and would reduce sweat formation on the face, thus making it possible for the makeup to stay on for long.
Winters might be an arch enemy of the dry skin type but summer is considerably lenient. Although, you might not be sweating buckets on the face, you should follow the basic cleaning and hydrating techniques to keep your skin hydrated and supple.
This season seems to be high on drama and no, we are not talking about sitcoms and movies. The fashion industry’s who’s who seems to be going all dramatic with makeup this fall and although, would they be continuing the trends till the entire summer is still in the speculation stage.
Fendi’s golden leaf shadow would top the list as it goes up and beyond the bold greens and fuchsia pink. For summers this year, cut down on colors like orange and pink, these got thrown away a lot last year. With people opting for orange clothes, orange lipstick, orange eye shadow, orange accessories, orange handbags and orange juices, it’s perhaps time to give orange a much needed break. Colors like coral, baby pink, brown and the let-splay-safe- red would be a much better and practical choice.
Metallic colors are making a comeback and although, the trend is still in its infancy, it has been predicted to catch up by the mid to late May. However, you should keep metallic reserved for the evening wear as it can get a bit too uncomfortable and gaudy for a casual day out.
