While some people can hardly wait for the crisp autumn weather to arrive, I’m willing the 80-degree breezy days to stretch on for as long as possible. I love the ease of warm weather makeup where everything is soft, dewy, and fresh. Here’s how I keep that carefree glow going well past Labor Day.
Play up your brows: Full brows frame your face and give it a youthful quality, which allows you to get away with less makeup. I always fill in my brows before I put on under-eye concealer, because often I find that once my brows are done, my eyes magically look less tired and I don’t need as much cover-up. I love our Wonder Blading Brow Kit because it takes only two minutes and gives me waterproof, budge-proof color that lasts up to two days—even through showering and washing my face.
Think rosy, not bronzy: Dusting on layers of bronzer won’t make you look sun-kissed,
just covered in obvious makeup. Instead, dab on a liquid or cream blush in a shade that mimics the color your cheeks turn after a day spent in the sun. Tap a tiny bit along the tops of your
cheekbones, which looks more natural than applying it on the apples, and use your ring finger to gently blend in the color.
Try a soft lip stain: Don’t get me wrong, I love a bold lip—but if you’re going for that laid-back look, a lip stain that resembles your own natural lip color kicked up a notch or two is the perfect finishing touch. It brings healthy color to your lips, which in turn brightens your entire complexion. You’ll find these kind of subtle, pretty hues in our Wonder Blading Fresh Tints Lip Color range (my favorite is XOXO, which I'm wearing in this photo).
