Summertime, for most of us, means more time outside.  This also means your skin color is going to get darker.  Whether you spray tan or do it via the sun and proper sunscreen (hint hint), a golden glow is a beautiful thing when done safely.
Jessica Miller, an Authentic Beauty makeup artist and popular makeup blogger at Neapolitan Beauty, recently got an organic spray tan at Authentic Beauty. And she has tips for you to switch up your makeup routine in summer that will enhance your new glow while still looking natural, soft, and gorgeous this season.

Luminous and lightweight, the Magic 3 in 1 Foundation is safe and non-toxic, and it works as a foundation, concealer and it camouflages.

1. Switch to a darker foundation and a darker concealer.

Your skin color has deepened, and your makeup colors should as well. And please, please, please don’t continue to use the same concealer under the eyes in the summer that you used in the winter.  To help you get the perfect match, I suggest using a makeup product that can multitask as your foundation and concealer like Authentic Beauty’s Magic 3 in 1 Foundation

And remember that bronzer is meant to only give you a touch of sun and is not supposed to replace a natural tan, a spray tan, a tanning lotion, or any of the above. Be subtle. It should be used as a subtle highlight to your cheeks.

 

 

2. Instead of blush, switch to a shimmery bronzer. 

Your skin is golden now and you can enhance it with glistening warmth on your cheeks.  Opt for a color like Sedona. If you still want to add color, use a peach colored blush instead of pink.  The Angle Cheek Brush is the perfect brush for applying both bronzer and blush.

3. If you usually wear a brown eye liner, switch it up with a black eye pencil or a deep navy.

Navy looks especially beautiful with the orange undertones in a tan. Authentic Beauty’s black eye pencil has a rich, creamy texture and a deep color pigment that glides on flawlessly and is easily blended for a soft natural look.

Be sure to outline the lips with a matching lip pencil to make them stand out when using a lighter lip color.
