Your wardrobe isn’t the only thing that needs an update when the temperatures rise. The summer season is all about keeping your makeup light. Heavy, thick formulations and power makeup takes a backseat to lighter, cream-based formulas that won’t melt or cake up your skin. Embrace the “no-makeup” makeup movement, using makeup to achieve a toned-down, natural look. We love this movement because it encourages women to be confident and comfortable in their own skin.
