As the sun-drenched days of summer roll in, it's time to revamp your makeup routine to achieve a look that not only lasts through heat and humidity but also radiates a gorgeous summer glow. Whether you're heading to the beach, a poolside soirée, or just spending a casual day outdoors, these tips and tricks, along with products from Adrienne Furrie Beauty, will help you master the art of long-lasting, luminous summer makeup.
Prep Your Canvas: Skincare First
Before diving into makeup application, ensure your skin is well-prepped. Begin with a lightweight moisturizer and a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. A quick dusting of Translucent Powder pre-makeup over your T-zone can help control excess oil and keep your makeup in place.
Lightweight Base: Moisturizing BB Cream
Give your skin a moist, subtly evened out appearance with Adrienne Furrie Beauty's ultra lightweight BB Cream. Think moisturizer with a light touch of coverage. This BB Cream is perfect for a natural, casual everyday beauty look. Apply it with a Foundation Brush for a seamless finish that keeps you looking fresh all day. Or if it's a more casual day, skip foundation all together and just use concealer where needed.
Conceal with Care
For blemishes and under-eye circles, choose a creamy, long-wearing concealer. Set it with a translucent powder to prevent creasing. Adrienne Furrie Beauty offers a range of concealers that complement our BB Cream for a flawless complexion.
Bronze and Blush Brilliance
Embrace the sun-kissed look by adding warmth to your complexion with bronzer. Apply it to the high points of your face where the sun naturally hits – your forehead, cheekbones, and nose. To enhance the summer glow, sweep a peachy or coral blush onto the apples of your cheeks and an optional touch of highlighter on cheekbones for the ultimate radiant finish.
Eye-catching and Sweat-proof Eyes
A light, neutral eyeshadow base will help your eyeliner and deeper shadows adhere better. Experiment with bronzy, golden, or earthy tones from Adrienne Furrie Beauty's eyeshadow collection to create a mesmerizing summer eye look. Finish with a smudge resistant mascara to help prevent raccoon eyes. Or skip the mascara all together and just line the eyes with a well blended eyeshadow.
Brows that Wow
Groomed brows frame the face and complete the look. Use brow powder and our Definer Brush to define and fill in your brows. Set them in place with Tinted Brow Gel for added volume and durability.
For a natural yet polished look, choose a hydrating tinted lip balm and pair it with a lip pencil in coordinating shade for extra long wear. Bold coral, soft pinks, and warm nudes are perfect summer shades. Exfoliate your lips beforehand and apply a thin layer of un-tinted lip balm to ensure a smooth application.
Adrienne Furrie Beauty Blot Powder On-the-Go
Keep your skin looking fresh and shine-free with Blot Powder. This translucent, colorless, pressed powder instantly removes shine from your skin without leaving a heavy layer of powder behind. Dust it lightly over your T-zone or anywhere else that’s gone from lovely and dewy to just straight up shiny. It's ideal for easy touch-ups on the go, and an absolute must for anyone who’s in front of the camera or filming video.
Hydration and Touch-ups
Stay hydrated throughout the day to maintain healthy, glowing skin from within. And you may find it helpful to carry some of the essentials with you for on the go touch ups, including concealer, lip products, and Blot Powder.
Summer makeup is all about embracing the natural beauty of sun-kissed radiance while ensuring it lasts through the sizzling heat. By following these tips and incorporating products from Adrienne Furrie Beauty, including our lightweight BB Cream and Blot Powder, along with the stylish Adrienne Furrie Canvas Makeup Bag, you can create a long-lasting and luminous makeup look that effortlessly glows, making you feel confident and beautiful all season long. So, go ahead and enjoy the sunny days while looking stunning and fresh-faced!
