Top 5 Rules For Flawless Summer Makeup

1. BB Creams Are In

Apply your favorite medium coverage BB cream all over your face. Use your fingers and rub the product in while making slow tapping motions. You should use a matte BB cream if your skin is super oily, or if your skin is normal. However, women with drier skin should use a hydrating & glow-boosting BB cream for that youthful look. No reason to set your cream in place, let it look as radiant and natural throughout the day. Here are a few BB Creams from LoveMy Makeup NZ that are popular and are at very reasonable prices.

2. Use Liquid Highlighters & Bronzer

Summer makeup looks are all about that glow from within, as well as that tanned complexion.Are you a fan of bronzed skin? If so, apply your favorite bronzer to your temples, as well as onto your cheeks. Use a round fluffy brush to achieve that blended look. Once the bronzer sets in place, reach for a liquid highlighter and add it to the high points of your face. You should apply your liquid highlighter over your cheekbones, your forehead, as well as onto your nose & chin. Dab the product in with your ring finger and enjoy that wet & glowy complexion!

3. Emphasize Your Eyes With Lash Extensions

Lash extensions will open up your eyes and give you that rested and feminine look.

A set of lash extensions is applied at a lash salon by a certified esthetician. The entire process usually takes 60-90 minutes to do.
Once done, your lash extensions will stay on for 3 weeks straight! This means that you can enjoy sun-bathing, night-outs, as well as gym sessions while having these on.
Lash extensions are long-lasting, durable, as well as weather-resistant.
The best part? They can be customized per your eye shape and your preferred outcome.


4. Brush Your Brows

If you are a fan of bushy brows and you like that natural look, embrace your fluffy brows asap! This summer, light and feathery brows will be a huge trend!
These eyebrows are achieved with the help of a tinted brow gel. This product looks just like your typical mascara since it comes with a mascara-wand.
You should comb your eyebrows through and achieve that lifted and bushy brow. Do not overpluck and enjoy the minimalistic look the entire season! Here are some popular brow brushes at the LoveMy Makeup NZ online store

5. Wear A Lip Tint

 Lastly, you should nourish your lips and take care of them with either a lip oil or with a lip tint. Stay away from matte lipsticks since they are too drying and not as wearable during high heat. Also, these can easily crack once exposed to high temperatures, so do not purchase them any time soon.

Use a lip tint and smear the product over your lips. You can also use a lip pencil over your lip corners, just to achieve a bit of dimension.
Also, did you know that lip tints can also be used as a cheek tint? If you are a fan of that blushed look, add a bit of product with your ring finger to your cheeks, and enjoy that monochromatic look!

PS: Set Your Makeup

At the very end, you should set your makeup with a setting spray. Use a matte setting spray since this kind is the best during the summer season. It will keep your oils in place, and it will set your makeup for the upcoming 12-hour period!
