LUX Summer Beauty: Make-Up Swaps

Beach days, salty hair, sun kissed skin and care-free spirits continue to lead the way as we prance through these hot summer months. As you're fresh out of that salt water, re-structure your make up bag so that it's both seasonal and savvy. There are few tricks when it comes to different products that can enhance your sun-shiny look! Let's dive into it and keep in mind that summer is the perfect time to clean out your make up bag as you swap out products... getting rid of old or expired make up.

Shelve: Matte Lipstick // Swap it for: Lip gloss or tinted lip balm

Matted lip stains tend to crease and lay into the lines of your lips. You’ll still get all of the benefits of rocking the same color, but you’ll be nourishing and conditioning your lips in the process.

Shelve: SPF 15 facial moisturizer // Swap it for: A non-greasy sunscreen with SPF 30+

Summer calls for a higher-SPF sunscreen to give yourself enough protection. Use a fast-absorbing formula with strong UV protection.

Shelve: Foundation // Swap it for: Tinted moisturizer

Choose a lightweight tinted moisturizer which will still provide the coverage you want without weighing down your skin! This will give your face a natural glow while achieving even tones.

Shelve: Blush // Swap it for: Bronzer

Blush makes the apples of your cheeks so kissable, but summer time calls for accentuated cheek bones and that can be done with an awesome bronzer to compliment your sun kissed skin.

Shelve: Dark tinted eye shadows // Swap it for: Lighter shades

Dark shadows can provide a dramatic look that's fit for a night out! Go for lighter shades that infuse gold or nudes.
