Please welcome Katy Gardner, our guest blogger for the day! She is Esthetician and Beauty Coach at Joseph's Salon & Spa on Dutchmans Lane. She gave us super easy make-up tips for a natural and light face that won't melt off in this sweltering summer heat. Enjoy!
In hot summer months we are out and about and want to look our best, without the hassle of keeping up with a full face of make-up. It is best to stick to the basics, and remember to keep it natural to avoid a melted face.
Start by protecting your skin. I love Aveda Mineral Tinted Moisture because its light weight, oil-free and best of all, it has SPF 15 to keep your skin protected from harmful and damaging UV rays. This is a client favorite being that it is non-acnegenic and is formulated without parabens, while also giving a sheer coverage.
Although we want to keep our skin safe, we all know that everyone wants that sun-kissed glow without the damaging effects. To achieve this look, try Aveda Petal Essence Face Accents in Shimmer Shell from the summer Sea Blossoms collection. It combines warm tones of golden oyster to luminous pink, and looks great on every skin tone! Use the Uruku bronzing brush to apply all over the face for a fresh, luminous glow.
To stay polished and natural, stick to a soft, neutral color on your eyes. Aveda Petal Essence, Single Eye Color in Lemon Spice is a warm, shimmery peach that gives just the right amount of punctuation to the eyes. Finish your look with a light coat of Aveda “Mosscara” -infused with conditioning Icelandic moss in Earth or Black Forest.
Complete your look with a bold pop of color on lips to give a polished finish that is fun and flirty. Try Aveda Nourish-mint Lip Color in Star Coral - with refreshing organic spearmint and vanilla. This smoothing formula increases moisture by 26%, making it a great addition to your summer make-up routine.
