The weather can be deceiving, from the scorching sun to the downpour of rain, but we won't be deterred in our creativity. With the rise in temperature during the holidays, our wardrobe and makeup needs an upgrade. These beauty hacks are sure to help you pull off an awesome holiday look despite the weather. Holiday makeup, hairdo, outfits and accessories are the hacks you'd want to exploit. Few necessities ought to be in your wardrobe this summer; a makeup purse, wide brimmed hats for light showers, head warmers, hoodies, sneakers, boots, glasses and some wheels to go places with, whether its a bicycle or an automobile. Nobody wants to look all sweaty in a group photo, or any photo at all, so I advise you have prep items in a portable makeup purse for easy access to touch up the face at any time. A beauty blender works wonders as it easily soaks up moisture leaving the face with a smooth finish. Smeared and melted makeup are a definite turn off, do be wise and invest in quality makeup products. Skin care is as important as the makeup itself. Invest in a moisturizer that suits the skin, this serves as a proper base for applying the makeup. Primers are a definite yes this season, applied before putting on makeup to ensure long lasting coverage. Primer application achieves a lot and take only a few seconds to apply, so why not just go for it.
The popular adage "less is more" should be kept in kind when applying makeup in this season as heat causes makeup to crease and cake, now you wouldn't want that. Your fave moisturizer and a teeny bit of foundation give that natural no makeup-makeup look. The use of mascara can not be over emphasized. It gives the eyes that glow and elongates the lashes. Switch between different colors for more fun. Invest in a water proof, long wear mascara to prevent getting raccoon eyes and smeared mascara all over the face during a swim or those heartbreaks that make you tear up. The lip stain craze has come to stay, their long lasting formula give a sheer finish and you're ultimately not worried about having cracked lips or partially wiped lipstick while eating. Try nudes or pink shades for the ultimate natural look or go bold with rich velvety red or playful shades like blue, purple or black for an audacious look.
