Skip foundation in high heat and apply a tinted moisturizer instead. It will offer a much more natural look and, while still evening your skin tone and hiding blemishes, give your skin a light and free feel. Their are an array of choices that will make it easy for you to find a product that meshes well with your skincare needs. Here are three suggestions for a stellar summer look.
To hide small imperfections, you can use a little concealer. You only need to use a little bit, otherwise it will look unnatural in the sunlight. Before heading out into the sun, using a small, fine brush, dot a small amount of the concealer onto the area you are trying to cover. Blend until it becomes one with your skin. Avoid getting concealer into the small wrinkles. It will enhance them, making them more noticeable.
You may have seen concealer sticks in yellow, lavender and green rather than skin tones. These concealers can be used to combat particular types of imperfections. Yellow concealers are used to conceal bluish skin problems, such as undereye circles and bruises. Lavender concealer can balance out yellow imperfections such as yellowish bruises and sallow complexions. It can also be used on darker skin to hide undereye circles. Green concealer is great for hiding redness, covering pimples, rosacea and other blemishes.
For the best results when using concealer sticks, don't apply the stick directly to your face but use a small brush instead. Apply sparingly and then blend with your finger tip or a makeup sponge. Try these products...
