Yes, summer is nipping at our well-pedicured heels! That doesn’t mean that we have to sacrifice our love of color and products because of the heat! You can be light and love it if you follow a couple of simple tips and tricks.

Our monthly columnist, celebrity makeup artist and ahead-of-the-trend-setter Kerry Malouf says, “Color is always in style when it comes to a warm summer day.” Malouf does acknowledge that there are two cardinal rules for summer beauty: “Summertime is the time to keep it colorful and protect our skin! Which means we can keep it simple!”

Malouf recently worked on a shoot for WOO and these photos show how a little color can go a long, long way.

Malouf’s recommendations are simple and effective: SUNTEGRITY All-Natural Sunscreen, “>Maybelline Waterproof Mascara and BECCA’S makeup palette is, according to Malouf, “all you will need to create the natural summer glow and enhance your natural beauty.” Three products? That’s it? No more, no less? Yup, that’s it. Simple. Effective. Beautiful.

“BECCA’S makeup palette is just a magnet for attention,” Malouf gushed. “It really is meant to enable women enhance their beauty without losing their naturalness.” It’s crucial to remain natural-looking with light makeup during the dog days of summer and maintaining a streamlined makeup bag and face will take you through to September.
