When the heat is on, it’s time to adjust your makeup to complement the softer colors of summer. Time to take a break from deep red and brown lipsticks, and a break from heavier ‘foundations’. If you have a bit of a tan, nothing looks better than a tinted moisturizer and a light bronzer instead of wearing cheek color/blush. But which to choose? While so much will depend on your personal skin tone, here is what works for me:
- Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in tan; lightweight yet smooths out uneven colors on your skin; this is one of their bestselling products.
- Laura Mercier candleglow bronzing powder. Truth be told, I tried a much pricier bronzer by Sisley-Paris but did not care for it…was way too light for my olive skin, so did not have enough impact. I returned it (thank you Nordstrom’s) and bought this one at a fraction of the price. It gives you a bronze glow without being too dark or muddy.
Becca highlighter in champagne pop – who could resist that name! Brushed lightly on the top of your cheeks and on the bridge of your nose and you will glow like a goddess. 😉
Ok, now it’s time for a final update on the Rodan and Fields lash serum that I started in early April. (Check out ‘before’ pics). I shared my results after six weeks of use, which was “good but not great”. I was encouraged to continue treatment and be patient. Ok, ok, will continue to apply every night before bed….Well, I am glad I took that advice – after ten weeks I can report that the results are GREAT. Longer, thicker lashes on the top and bottom, though I only applied the serum to the top.
Because your lashes are so much better, there is no need to wear layer upon layer of mascara – one thin coat is all you need, which is also a better look in the summer. My final verdict: truly remarkable and worth the minimal effort and expense.
Glad to answer any questions!
