Summers and matte foundations go hand-in-hand. A flawless base is just what you need during the hot summer days. A matte foundation will help keep your oil and shine in check. The last thing you need at the end of a long day is to look like a greasy mess.
Try the Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation for a natural-looking medium coverage. This non-comedogenic foundation for normal to oily skin refines pores for a natural-looking matte finish, making it a perfect foundation for summer. With 18 unique shades made to fit diverse Indian skin tones, the Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless ensures a foundation fit for each one of us.
You can add radiance and glow to your face with the rest of your makeup products but using a matte foundation will prevent the makeup from melting off your face.
Once you are done creating a flawless base with a matte foundation, it is time to bring some of the glow back to your complexion. Use a liquid or powder foundation on the high points of your face (the bridge of your nose, top of your cheekbones, and the Cupid’s bow) to highlight these areas and add some shine. . You can also use a highlighter under your brow bone and around the inner corner of your eyes to brighten up your eye area. Try the Master Chrome Highlighter by Maybelline to add a luminous glow to your skin. The reflective pigments of the Master Chrome highlighter drench your skin in an eye-catching warm metallic sheen.
Skip the dark and bold eyebrow pomade and opt for a light pencil or an eyebrow gel to create a soft, feathered brow look. Use a spoolie to brush up your brow hairs and run a tinted or a clear eyebrow gel to secure them in place. If your eyebrows are sparse, use a pencil to fill in the spaces. Use a very light hand as you do not want to create a very sharp and defined eyebrow. Au naturel is the way to go this summer.
A soft, pink blush on the apples of your cheek will give you a naturally flushed look which looks perfect during summers. If pink is not your colour, look for a blush with peachy undertones. Peach blushes flatter all skin tones and give your complexion a warm and sun-kissed look.
Summers are great for p with bright colours. Bright and neon eyeshadows are a must-try during summer. Bring out your blues, greens, oranges, and pinks for adding a bright pop of colour on your eyelids. If such bright colours are outside your comfort zone, bright coloured eyeliners are a great way to play with colour without going all out. A blue or green eyeliner along your lash line will instantly transform your look without looking overdone.
Summer days are warm and bright, so why should your lipstick be any different? Summer is the best time to don a vibrant lip colour and stay on trend. So ditch the purples, nudes, and browns for vivid shades like oranges and fuchsias. A bold and bright lip will bring your whole summer makeup look together and add the perfect finishing touch.
