Fourth of July Beauty Tips
Bronze Beautifully- Bronzer makes your eyes look brighter, your teeth whiter — everyone looks better with a little warmth added to their skin. Only apply bronzer to the high points of your face (where the sun naturally hits you: forehead, cheekbones, chin, and nose). Covering every nook and cranny is what gives you that fake, baked look. Powder bronzers are the easiest to apply
Switch to a stain- This runway-preferred lip product, which can come in either liquid or balm form, provides all-day color without frequent upkeep, making them a must-have when your favorite lipstick just can’t compete with the menacing humidity.
Lighten your face makeup- First step: Swap foundation for tinted moisturizer. These sheer formulas look and feel airier on skin, and are less likely to turn cakey on steamy days. Feeling a little too exposed? Surratt recommends brushing powder foundation over the tinted moisturizer in spots where you need a little extra coverage — say, on blemishes or areas of redness around your nose.
Stay-proof your eye makeup- For longer-lasting shadow, avoid using eye cream on your lids (it can break down makeup), and smooth on an eye primer instead. “It will minimize creasing and create a base for the shadow to cling to so it lasts longer
Wade proof your mascara- Can’t bear to switch from your favorite? Apply a waterproof version on the tips of your lashes over regular mascara to boost its staying power.
