Summer is always a special time of year where people tend to spend a lot of time outdoors, socialising, and exploring. With that said, the full face of glam makeup can seem rather out of place, and there’s the fact that most people don’t want to spend large amounts of time doing their makeup in the morning. Instead the focus is often on soft, simple makeup that is glowing and flattering allowing you to quickly get out the door.

If you’re looking for ways to achieve that simple summer makeup look without going overboard, then these tips are sure to help you out.

Skip the Contour, Blush, and Highlight – Stick with a Glowing Bronzer

The typical full glam face of makeup tends to involve contour, bronzer, blush, and highlight. While this can look beautiful and give you that chiseled face, it’s far from simple makeup. Instead, you can take almost all of these products out of your routine and just replace them with a glowing bronzer. Today you can find bronzers that have a sheen, or almost wet-look to them, as well as shimmery bronzers. This is a great way to achieve that fresh-from the beach look that is always so stylish in summer.

Keep in mind that when you pick a bronzer you want to pick one that suits your skin tone making sure you don’t go too orange or dark.

Tinted Moisturiser is a Multi-Tasker

There are all kinds of multi-tasking products when it comes to makeup and a tinted moisturiser is a great example. This will give you a sheer to light coverage, while providing your skin with hydration. If you get one with SPF in it, you’ll be able to skip that additional step of having to apply sunscreen. A tinted moisturiser is meant to provide a natural look, allowing your own skin to show through. Many of these tinted moisturisers have a satin or dewy finish to them as well, which is always flattering in the summer.

Coral Is the Colour of Summer

If you are the type who likes to change up their lipstick colour to match with the season, then you’re going to want to go for a coral. Coral is always a popular summer shade as it’s the perfect mix between a peach and a pink. This means it’s flattering to the majority of skin tones. You can go with a light coral lip balm or go all out with a bright coral lip stain.

Choose a Summer Scent

As a final tip, you can really finish off your entire look with a gorgeous perfume. You can pick a light summer scent that becomes your “signature scent” if you will. People sometimes underestimate the power of a signature scent. You want to ensure that you select something that truly reflects you. Look into the notes of the scent when deciding and it is essential to guarantee that you are purchasing authentic cosmetics. Counterfeit perfumes can be damaging on the skin. The best thing to do is to find a provider that retails reliable cosmetics. You’re better off looking into authentic cosmetics at Maple Prime as opposed to an unreliable site online that may have discounted prices but ultimately be damaging.

that will help you to pull your look together, and really manage to achieve that perfect effortless summer look.
