Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Melted makeup, smudged mascara and frizzy locks are often the results of a long, hot summer day. When the heat turns up and the humidity kicks in, apply these simple summer beauty tips, courtesy of R Salon, to your regular routine for the right kind of summer glow.
Set With Primer
Used after your moisturizer and before your regular makeup routine, applying a makeup primer is especially important during the hot and humid summer months. Just like priming a canvas before the paint goes on, a good makeup primer will provide a smooth and silky base for foundation. Look for a primer that contains silicone, like Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light, to ensure a long-lasting complexion that beats the heat and stays fresh all day.
Everything needs some extra TLC and hydration during the summer. Nourish your hair from roots to tips with moisturizing leave-in conditioners and hydrating oils. Tame fly-aways, fight frizz and add a moisturizing shine with Moroccanoil's Hydrating Styling Cream. The full line of Moroccanoil products is available at r salon.
Regular lipsticks and glosses are often heavy and drying during the summer. Instead, opt for colorful stains and moisturizing lip balms. Try Clinique's Chubby Stick ($17), a nourishing tinted lip balm that comes in 14 different hues and complements any summer look.
Avoid raccoon eyes altogether and turn to waterproof everything for your eye makeup needs during the summer heat. MAC's False Lashes Waterproof ($21) beats humidity and water with a double-lush brush that delivers twice the level of pigment for a fierce and smudge-free 12 hours.
With a gel or Shellac mani-pedi, you don't have to worry about your nail polish chipping away while you're on vacation. Visit the salon for a gel manicure or pedicure that will lend your digits a glossy and chip-free finish that lasts several weeks.
