Tans naturally warm up a complexion and add a natural glow to the skin. But the glowing, bronzed look isn’t reserved only for warm months. You can have beauty-full nights, regardless of the season. Since it’s September, you can look amazing on those late summer and early fall nights, when it’s still quite warm. I like to let my skin “air out” from all the sun rays, oil, and SPF that I’ve absorbed and accumulated during the day. Basically, I allow it to breathe and recover. I do, however, make sure to moisturize. If I am looking forward to an exciting evening out, I make the most out of a minimum of products. Here are a few tips for doing the same. These products will effortlessly carry you into fall, too!
Kevyn Aucoin The Neo-Bronzer: This luxurious, three-in-one face palette has everything you need to achieve beautiful, sun-kissed skin twelve months a year. Maximize your glow with vibrant, luminous color. The blush adds color and liveliness, while the bronzer allows for warmth and dimension. The highlighter reflects light and that leads to radiance… regardless of season.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner: I love this waterproof liquid liner because it glides on and never smudges. The thin, marker-like tip is easy to use, even if you don’t have a ton of liquid liner experience. You can opt for thin and defined lines or thick, bold, and dramatic ones. There are one dozen shades to choose from, so break out of that black and brown only routine and try a new one every month!
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick: Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick offers a massive lineup of 100 shades with six finishes! What that means is that there is something for absolutely everyone. When it’s late and you’re getting all romantic, you need “look at me” lips or lips that scream “KISS ME!” You’ll most definitely give off those vibes with UD’s Vice 100.
Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon: The big and full brow trend isn’t going anywhere, nor should it! This chubby pencil sculpts and it allows you to tame errant brow hairs, in addition to adding some color.
It Cosmetics Superhero Masacra: This mascara will give you lashes so long and full that people will think you got eyelash extensions! Since coming onto the scene last year, it’s become one of those word-of-mouth editors faves. Try it and you’ll understand why.
