3 Summer Makeup Tips You Should Know | Nordstrom Giveaway!

10:45:00 AM

It's hot as Hades out there y'all & I think I sweat off about ten pounds the day these pics were taken (wishful thinking). In light of the sweltering temps I thought I'd bring you two fun treats today. I'm sharing the beauty products and tips I've been using most to stay looking fresh and not like a sweaty mess. AND I'm giving away a huge Nordstrom Prize just in time for you to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Check it all out below the pics!

Grab this super cute Kimono HERE for only $11!


-Avoid The Cake-
That's not a diet tip. But unless you're going to an all night event there's no need to pound on layers of makeup. Plus, sweat dripping down over a full face of cake is never a flattering look.

Instead, opt for a light weight foundation like the L'Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation or Clinique's Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup.

-Powder Is Your Friend-
If you want your liquid products to stay put, it's a general rule that you'll need to set them with some powder. This doesn't mean you need to do a full bake. But a light dusting of Coty Airspun Face Powder will keep your foundation in place without breaking the bank.

Bonus Tip: If you find that your mascara often transfers to your under eye area on a hot day, then setting that area of skin with powder can make a huge difference. It should prevent the oils from your skin from causing your mascara to run. Here's a quick video tut on how to do it.

-Set It And Forget It-
I've found that once you get your base perfected most blushes and bronzers will stay put as long as you set it all with the right setting spray! Urban Decay's All Nighter is the industry standard and will never let you down. But it isn't cheap. I've said many times that I like to use the Wet N' Wild Photo Focus Natural Finish Setting Spray as my daily spray. It's less than $5 and gets the job done.

Bonus Tip: Once you're out and about it doesn't hurt to carry a small translucent powder compact with you (I like the Rimmel Stay Matte or Charlotte Tillbury's Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder). And blotting papers are a good addition to every summer handbag.

But the best tip I can give you is; NEVER wipe the sweat from your brow or wherever your glands may be overachieving. ALWAYS blot. Grab a tissue if necessary and use blotting motions to remove excess oils. Then, you can even spritz another wash of setting spray over your face to feel a bit refreshed.

Now it's time for the fun! You can definitely stock your summer makeup arsenal with this Nordstrom Gift Card!
