It’s summer already and your inbox is filled with invitations for weddings, parties, and lunch dates with the girls. Now, typically, we women love to dress up in amazing clothes, makeup, hairdo, the works! But summer can be tricky when it comes to using beauty products. We want to look our best, but at the same time none of us want to be worried about our makeup melting away in the heat. Here are a few products that we recommend for a light, summer-friendly look that will make you look glamorous without having to wear too much makeup.
Wearing a pretty shade of lipstick is the quickest way to glam up and the MAT 1 is one of our favorites when it comes to color. It is a coral-shaded lipstick— a mix of neon pink and orange— perfect for a Sunday brunch, pool party, or even a day at the mall. The lipstick’s texture is a bit creamy and it requires regular touch-ups, but if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind that, then this particular shade is definitely worth your buck.
This is a must-have for those really hot days where applying lipstick might prove to be too heavy and you are looking for something quick, light, and easy. It lets your lips breathe and leaves them looking shiny and plump. The Sparkling Grape variant has an amazing fruity smell and keeps your lips moisturized for hours. The gloss has a bit of shimmer to it, which gives a subtle, yet sexy look to your face.
This mascara is great for a natural, everyday look, giving your lashes just the right amount of curl and length. The brush has a number of bristles ensuring that the eyelashes don’t stick together forming clumps. It does an exceptional job at accentuating your eyes and separating each lash from the other, making them look thicker and longer. It’s waterproof as well, so it’s the perfect mascara to wear during the summer time, especially when you are heading to the beach or attending pool parties.
This colored version of the very popular black colossal kajal by Maybelline is right on trend this season! Though it has a tendency to fade out rather quickly (it requires a touch up after 4-5 hours, so we suggest carrying it with you), we think the beautiful turquoise color is quite summery and makes your eyes pop without looking too harsh. Use it to enhance your eyes with a dramatic winger liner look or take a cue from Aishwarya Rai at Cannes and apply it on your lower lid and lash line.
We are big fans of the Maybelline Color Show nail color range. The nail paints are not only affordable but last for months without drying out in the bottles. This particular honeysuckle shade of pink is striking and playful, and quite a versatile color to have in your collection. It has great texture, spreads evenly on the nails, and lasts for a good 10-12 days, which is a long time as far nail paints are concerned.
