Happy April fool's day! Hopefully you are relaxing on the beach or somewhere fabulous enjoying spring break; or maybe just dreaming about or planning your upcoming summer vacation.
Glam Slam is here to make sure you look great while enjoying the great outdoors, thanks to some practical tips from celebrity makeup artist Julianne Kaye; who has worked with Britney Spears, Kate Hudson, Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson. Besides having a great makeup application, the tips and tricks are really in the products that you use, according to Julianne.
Here are her warm weather makeup must-haves:
Tinted Moisturizer: So you want to have evened-out skin but don't want to look made up. Get your hands on a great tinted moisturizer with an SPF. I love Laura Mercier's because it looks really natural. It evens out skin tone and helps combat burning, so you don't have to spend time covering up your not-so-chic lobster burn for the next few days.
Waterproof Mascara: The last thing you want to worry about is raccoon eyes, so I recommend getting great waterproof mascara. Cargo's "better than waterproof mascara" creates capsules around each lash (tubing formula) that makes taking your waterproof mascara off a breeze, while making sure you don't rip out your lashes during the process.
Cream Eye Shadow: Maybelline "Color Tattoo 24HR Eye shadow" is one of my favorite drugstore finds. These cream-based, ink technology formulas go on easily with the swipe of your finger and last all day long; so you don't have to worry about whether or not your eye shadow is still on. Great natural colors for summer are, "Bad to the Bronze" and "Barely Branded."
Tinted Lip Balm: No one wants to deal with a sticky lip gloss for the sheer fact that it just doesn't stay put and can look like you're overly made up, especially at the beach. A tinted lip balm with an SPF of 15 is exactly what you need to hydrate, plump and protect your lips without looking too overdone. I love Fresh Sugar lip treatment.
Color Stick: A great multiple stick is not only a time saver but can help give a boost to your natural complexion, especially when on the go. I love a bronzed peach cream color stick (St. Tropez by Cargo) that blends effortlessly to eyes, cheeks and lips; creating a natural monochromatic look, perfect for giving a soft tan glow, providing some tint on the lips and sculpting the cheekbones.
