As summer comes around, it’s time to ‘heat and humidity’-proof our makeup pouches for those mid-day touch ups! From sun protection to makeup fit for a day at the beach, Reflections has got your covered with our picks for your makeup essentials this summer!
1. Sun Protection
At the top of our list is SPF! SPF! SPF! That’s right ladies, you can never have too much protection from the sun! Harmful UVA/UVB rays from direct exposure to the sun have been proven to cause health problems in the long run the likes of pigmentation, premature skin aging, and skin cancer.
Thankfully we have our best-selling Sun Protection Powder! This all-natural formula minimizes pores and fine lines by tightening skin from within, and protects from harmful UVA/UVB rays and environmental pollutants. Just re-apply over bare skin or makeup with our handy Brush Dispenser every few hours for all-day protection!
2. Effortlessly Flawless Skin
While we all have an inner lazy-girl who wants to skip makeup entirely because of the humidity, we must not succumb!! Step out as your best self with radiant, glowing skin that only takes a minute to achieve!
With our 3-in-1 Anti-Aging BB Cream, you will have sun protection, skin care, and flawless skin before you can say “Do I really have to?” What’s better is you’ll have skin perfection that lasts all day long and keep others guessing if you’re perspiring in all the right places, or just that perfectly glowing!
3. Bright, not Burnt!
Go one-step further to highlight your beautiful face by brightening up in strategic areas. The use of highlighters will accentuate your bone structure and create an illusion of the sunrays illuminating your skin – so you’ll look like you’re right in your element, and fresh all day! Think mermaid, not lobster!
Try our Camouflage Cream on the t-zone, under the eyes, and on the cheekbones! Chock full of beneficial ingredients such as Vitamin E, organic coconut, and jojoba seed oil (to name a few), this hydrating concealer heals and nourishes skin while keeping it flawlessly dewy!
4. Bronze Goddess
For our fairer friends out there (or even those who wanna turn up the heat!), definitely incorporate bronzer into your makeup routine this summer!
Bronzers are a quick way to bring back life to your pale complexion, and create warmth for that added glow. With our Sheer Mineral Bronzer, unleash your inner sun goddess and conquer the heat while looking absolutely breathtaking!
5. Shine-Free Coverage
Need that added coverage for summer nights out on the town? We’ve got you covered!
Transform your makeup from day to night with a light application of our Matte Mineral Powder Foundation to add coverage, and oil control. With sun protection and healing qualities, this studio perfecting makeup is also great for smoothing out mature and textured skin!
6. Bright Eyed Beauty
Keep those peepers pretty even behind your sunnies! Nothing opens up those eyes like bright natural tones, to help you look and feel young and fresh all day!
Take your pick from our selection of Mineral Eyeshadows for intense pigments and longwearing eye makeup! How about turning things up a notch by layering one of our Mineral Sparkle Eyeshadows over your eye makeup? A little glitter never hurt!
7. Stay-on definition
There are few things worse than having eyeliner/mascara smudges that look like you’ve been crying over smudged eyeliner (it IS a vicious cycle), and creasing that looks like your eye makeup cracked under the heat. Both eyeliner and mascara are every girl’s best friend to instantly defining her eyes to look prettier and more awake; but the intense black pigments can be a hassle to deal with when heat and humidity come into play.
Thankfully we’ve got our 100% smudge-proof Liquid Liner, and smudge-proof, water resistant Infinity Lash Mascara as the perfect pairing for your eye-definition needs. These babies are made with organic, cruelty-free ingredients too so you can wing your eyeliner as high as you want, guilt-free!
8. Pretty Puckers
Our go-to tip for tying together a look is to add a pop of color to the lips! For the summer, you’ll want a non-sticky formula that stays on and is moisturizing at the same time. To that we say: Look no further!
Our Lip Butters are made with certified organic ingredients to nourish and protect lips against UV rays while at the same time hydrating, and healing chapped lips. Top it off with our Lip Glaze, which is infused with certified organic ingredients, and delivers hydration and superior shine without the stickiness! With 8 delectable shades of Lip Butters, and 14 luscious shades of our Lip Glaze to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
This summer, keep your makeup lightweight with a matte finish, and achieve glowing, sun-kissed skin with highlighters and bronzers! Dress up your eyes with natural tones and sparkles, and turn up the gaze with smudge-proof eyeliner and mascara. Lastly, complete your look with pops of color on the lips and add to your glow with some gloss!
Above all, remember to just have fun with it!
