Summer Approved Makeup
Posted on 20 June 2017
Summer officially starts this week and here in South Florida, we’ve already begun to experience the 90 degree weather on a regular basis (and of course some rain fall too!). It can be tough finding the perfect makeup routine when you have to be more conscious of your makeup potentially sliding off and melting away throughout the summer days; trust us- we know!
Whether kicking it poolside with friends, laying out by the beach, hitting the gym, chasing after kids, or however you may be spending your days in the hot and humid summer weather, we’re preparing you for the heat with some awesome products that are long lasting and help keep your makeup intact and prepared for anything!
Let's start with skin- the OFRA Foaming Vitamin C Cleanser is the best before-and-after makeup product to use! It’s no wonder this is one of our best-sellers and a must-have recommended by Ofra herself in the Top Six Summer Skin Care Essentials blog post. The cleanser infused with Vitamin C balances oil secretion and helps remove excess makeup. Vitamin C is the ingredient of summer, aiding in the reduction of pigmentation and defending skin from free radicals. Plus, it smells great! What better way to start your day than by awakening your senses with a citrus burst?
A major preparation step before applying makeup is primer, which can really make or break your whole makeup look, especially in the summer. The OFRA Absolute Cover Face Primer locks in makeup for a full 12 hours, reducing pore appearance, keeping your skin looking smooth, and adding youth back into your skin with anti-aging properties!
A key element in any makeup look is your brows, and during the summer this step is no less important! OFRA Eyebrow Gel is semi permanent and waterproof- I mean, what more is there to say? Apply it with our Brush #16 Angle Brush. Find your perfect shade here!
If you’re into liner and it's a must-use for your makeup looks, our Fixline Eyeliner Gel is super long wearing, will not flake or crack, and is smudge resistant- great for that summer heat! It also contains natural sun filters that deflect and absorb UV lighting, protecting the skin. Apply with Brush #1 Eyeliner Brush or Brush #4 Hard Angle Brush for the ultimate liner precision.
For lips, it's a no brainer! Our Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks are the go-to for their long lasting formula that is creamy and soft in texture, keeping the lips feeling moisturized. With over 50 shades to choose from, there's a lippie for every occasion!
If foundation is a necessity, our Absolute Cover Silk Peptide Foundation is lightweight with buildable coverage and is comparable to a waterproof product with its long lasting staying power that needs to be removed with a cleanser. Finish off your face with the Oil Control Pressed Powder to make sure your oil is kept at bay. Keep this handy in your purse for when you notice a bit of extra shine. Your friends may think it’s extra highlight and you can definitely go with it- but keeping this product handy, they’ll never have to guess!
Last but not least, spritz on some Makeup Fixer. It can be used before and after makeup application. Not only will it hold your makeup in place for hours on end, but it will also hydrate and protect your skin from external damages.
We hope you’re ready to dive into summer with these summer-approved makeup products to help you stay looking flawless from day to wherever the summer nights might take you!
