So grab your sunscreen and let's dive into the must-know summer makeup secrets that'll have you turning heads at every beach party and poolside gathering. Get ready to bask in the sunshine with confidence and style!


1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

When it comes to summer skin, hydration is key. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin plump, glowing, and healthy.  Don't forget to moisturize - I recommend a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer during the day and a richer cream at night to lock in that hydration. Your skin will thank you! I'm currently rocking IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream as my daily moisturizer.

2. Don't Skimp on Sunscreen

Sunscreen is your skin's best friend during the summer months. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and make sure to reapply, especially after swimming or sweating).  Remember, protecting your skin from harmful UV rays not only prevents sunburn but also reduces the risk of premature aging and skin cancer. I'm currently rocking the Supergoop Glow Screen in Golden Hour under my makeup to give a beautiful illumination to the skin.


3. Exfoliate Gently

Exfoliation is crucial for maintaining smooth, radiant skin during the summer. Opt for a gentle exfoliator (like a scrub or a chemical exfoliant) and use it 2-3 times a week to remove dead skin cells and reveal a fresh, glowing complexion. Just be cautious not to over-exfoliate, as this can lead to irritation and increased sun sensitivity. One of my staples is Pixi Glow Tonic for a gentle chemical exfoliation.

4. Go Light on Makeup

Summer is the perfect time to embrace a more natural, minimal makeup look. Heavy makeup can clog pores and lead to breakouts, especially when combined with sweat and humidity. Instead, opt for lightweight, oil-free foundations or tinted moisturizers, cream blushes, and waterproof mascara to avoid smudging and melting. My current go to is the NARS tinted moisturizer in Santiago it's a great shade for tan skin - and it has SPF30, bonus!


5. Refresh with Face Mists

Keep a refreshing face mist handy to cool and hydrate your skin throughout the day. Look for mists with soothing ingredients like aloe vera, cucumber, or chamomile to calm and nourish your skin. A quick spritz will not only feel amazing but also help set your makeup and give you that dewy, summer glow. I love the IT Cosmetics Your Skin but Better Setting Spray because it hydrates and sets at the same time and smells like yummy coconuts.  It's also great for dry or mature skin.


In conclusion, these makeup artist summer makeup tips are your ultimate guide to looking fresh, radiant, and effortlessly glamorous all season long. So go ahead, embrace the sunshine, and let your beauty shine through!
