Now that it’s feeling more like the summer season, it’s time to turn to our makeup bags and make some adjustments! No matter your skin type or style, looking flawless when the weather turns scorching is easy thanks to beauty tips from celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal.
Bronze it up! Mally says create that glow by using a bronzer that is 1-2 shades darker than your natural skin tone. Apply it to the following areas:
- Concentrate on the perimeter of your face and start behind the ear, working down along the jawline. Then, go across the top of the forehead (along the hairline).
- Lightly sweep across the forehead, bridge of the nose, cheeks, and tip of the chin. To prevent your face from looking “muddy” or “dirty”, make sure that you also apply a great pink blush on the apples of the cheeks, and a sweep of highlighter on the tops of the cheekbones. Try Mally Beauty Believable Bronzer ($40).
- Next, apply a shimmery champagne eyeshadow all-over eyelids. Try Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick in Saddle Shimmer ($25) and finish off with a nude lipgloss. Try Mally Beauty Super Natural ($20).”
Flawless Finish: Many women think translucent powder is the best way to battle shine during the summer, but that’s not the case, says Mally. It will leave you looking dry, white, cakey, and it will settle in all of your fine lines and wrinkles. She has developed a high-performance alternative— the Evercolor Poreless Face Defender ($40), the world’s first ever clear setting powder! This game-changing formula sets makeup, reduces shine, minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores and leaves skin satiny-matte. Best of all you can reapply throughout the day on top of makeup for extra shine protection.”
Waterproof and Bulletproof: “In the summer, I swear by my Waterproof Volumizing Mascara, an amazing formula that captures the one hour’s worth of work I used to do on my clients, so that you just need two coats on the top and one coat on the bottom for lush lashes,” says Mally. To remove, just make sure you have an oil-based makeup remover on hand! (Try my Mally Beauty Dual-Action Makeup Remover for Eyes and Lips).”
