We aren’t just referring to a sunny vacation in Cancun, Mexico. The summer is on its way – finally! – and will bring the hot, sweaty, wonderful weather we are all waiting for! With this weather comes changes in skin care and cosmetic routines which will help you transition into more fitting and comfortable products. Check out how you can start to adopt simple changes to get ready for the hot weather coming your way.

Cleanse Skin

Start your day by cleansing your skin with a gentle facial cleanser. We love Equate Beauty Mild Liquid Facial Soap, Walmart.com for $4.84 (save $5.03!!!!), which will get deep into your pores, leaving skin feeling fresh and clean! Be sure to pat your skin dry and apply a very light amount of Equate Beauty Precision Focus Wrinkle Serum available on Walmart.com for $6.55 (save $10.32!!!), around your eye area. This serum helps to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and UV damage. Finally apply a light coat of your favorite facial moisturizer with SPF of 15 or higher to keep your skin protected from the harsh summer sun.

Powder

We will save you the trouble of constantly worrying about running makeup or constant touch ups by simply eliminating liquid and cream foundations during the warmer weather. Instead use a very light mineral foundation with an SPF, blend into skin lightly, ensuring to keep a natural, even skin tone.

Concealer

Keep this very simple. Do not coat your entire face with concealer. Use it only where necessary such as under your eyes and on blemishes. When applying concealer under the eyes, apply it in a triangular shape rather than the typical half-moon style. Dab any spots you wish to minimize and blend as usual.

Bronzer/Blush

Very lightly apply bronzer, or a light pink blush to the apples of your cheeks, nose, chin, and hairline. Keep it light and looking natural. Do not go overboard as summer makeup should be minimal, earthy, and sun-kissed.

Eye Shadow

If you choose to apply eye shadow, this is when you would do it. Again keep the colors natural and light to prevent adding too much color to a specific look. Remember, do not apply it above the crease at all. Consider a cream shadow if you want it to last longer.

Waterproof Mascara

Using waterproof mascara in the summer is always a better option for many reasons. Even though black will make your eyes pop, brown will make the lashes look thicker and fuller. Try a brown color to make it look less obvious. Skip the liner unless you absolutely feel you have to wear it.

Lip Gloss

If you can find some gloss to protect your lips we highly recommend it. Opt for clear, nude, light pink, light colors, etc. They are key. Add some shine but don’t worry about adding color. That’s it! Your look is now complete and perfect for a hot summer’s day out in the sunshine!

Makeup Remover

Although you simplified your routine to bare essentials, you still need to ensure you skin is thoroughly cleaned every morning and night. Keeping a skin care routine will improve the look and feel of your skin which will make you feel even more confident with your new natural makeup routine! Keep it quick and easy with Equate Beauty Wipe Away The Day Cleansing Balm from Walmart.com for $5.44 (save $7.39). This stuff quickly dissolves face and eye makeup so that you can spend more time enjoying your life!
