So the Summer is almost upon us, and yet we are still so used to the gloomy weather, we aren’t even ready for the sun yet. But don’t worry, it’s not as difficult to prepare yourself as you may think. It’s actually very simple as long as you have the tools you need to stay fresh, flirty, and on fire.
You can expect to change your regular routine into something more fun and colourful now that the sun is making an appearance.
Here’s what you need to do.
You may still have that leftover burgundy covering your nails because there’s been no sun – making us all feel like we’re stuck in the Autumn/Winter season. But that just isn’t the case anymore, so get rid of that grungy shade and choose a lighter, more playful coloured nail polish to suit your environment. You can never go wrong with pinks, peaches, and oranges, whether they be pale or fluorescent, so don’t be afraid to command some attention. You will also want to make sure that your cuticles have been taken care of too, because people will notice and it’s never a good look.
The fun thing about the Summer is that you don’t need to go all out on the eyes like you may have done a few months ago. A simple sheen or shimmer over the eyelid will reflect the sun nicely and give the appearance of your eyes being bright and present. If this is a little too subtle for you, you can add a slight flick at the end with some liquid eyeliner if you need a bit more drama. Or you can merely stick some lashes on without any other business going on. It will keep them looking open and sultry, without having to do much work.
Depending on your skin type will determine what you can do, but the lighter the coverage, the better. Bear in mind the weather will get hot and you may sweat. Now of course there are tricks for this with setting mists and translucent powder, but you might not want to be that heavy. So a simple BB cream is always nice, evening out your complexion without too much product. Understandably, some of you may not have this option due to acne or dark blemishes, but colour correctors can do a lot of the work for you so you don’t necessarily need a full coverage foundation.
Highlighter and blusher are absolute must-haves. Opt for a liquid highlighter rather than a powder. You will barely need any product and you can easily apply it with a fingertip and just dab it onto the tops of your cheekbones, the arch of your brow, down the centre of your nose, and on your cupids bow for a radiant glow. Pair that up with a little blush on the apples of your cheeks and you will be ready to hit the runway.
How are you getting your skin ready for summer?

Oh good Michelle.
Summer definitely seems more exciting since it’s time to embrace the brighter colors more! Since I’m not in summer lands, the tips come in handy now that it’s more of a warmer weather here; and yes, I’m paying more attention to my nails and skin; especially to avoid too much sweating and sunburns.
Good you are Dalene.
For me I always through out my foundation in the summer and invest in some nice, blusher and mascara.
Ah nice one.
Great tips! I don’t usually wear make up a lot, just some lipstick and face powder. Nevertheless, I still think keeping our skin healthy would be the best look this summer.
