Summer Makeup Swaps: Beauty Products To Buy Now!

Every mom deserves to look and feel good. Just because you’re running around like a headless chicken and you may be covered in paint doesn’t mean that you have to let your beauty regimen slide. With summer on the way, it’s time to make some beauty swaps and invest in some new season staples.

Powder for liquid foundation 

In the winter months, most of us tend to be a little heavier-handed when it comes to applying foundation. When it’s hot outside, you don’t want that overdone look. Instead, you want your skin to look radiant and dewy. If you usually use powder, swap to liquid in the warmer months. You can use your fingers or brush to apply and build up coverage as you need. Liquid foundation is ideal for those with dry skin, but it is also suitable for people with oily skin. Choose a product with a matt finish if you’re prone to oily skin. If you’re not sure what foundation to buy, take a trip to the store and have a look at some different brands and products. Choose something that complements your skin tone, and ask an assistant to match your shade for you. You can ask for samples if you’re not sure which one to go for. Buying foundation can be a pricey business, especially if you get it wrong, so once you’ve chosen the one you want, take advantage of Bon-Ton coupon codes like these to save you money. If you find that foundation is too heavy for you in the summer, switch to a BB or CC cream instead. If you can, try and opt for products that contain SPF to protect your skin. 

Lipstick for gloss

When it’s cold and miserable outside, nothing gives you a lift like a bold statement lip. Red is a great choice for the winter, and it gives any outfit that sophisticated look. In the summer months, when most people tend to go for lighter makeup, swap lip liner and lipstick for gloss. Gloss is lighter, it’s easier to apply, and it’ll give you that subtle look that is perfect for warmer weather. 

Metallics for brights

Metallics are great for party season, but when the sun is shining, there’s nothing better than a pop of color on the eyes. Swap silvers and smoky black eyes for pinks, blues, and glittery nudes. If you’re going bold on the eyes, keep the rest of your makeup simple. Go for a nude lip and a sweep of bronze or blush. If you do love the metallic trend, there are shades that work in the summer, such as bronze and gold. You can combine them with pale pinks or nudes  to create a lighter take on the much-loved smoky eye.

As the seasons change, it’s a good idea to adapt your skincare regime and invest in some new season makeup. When temperatures rise, you don’t want your skin to feel heavy, and you can embrace that laid-back, barely there look, which works so well for vacations or lunch dates on warm days. Swap powers for liquids, go for bright eyes and opt for a subtle, shiny lip.
