Each season brings its own set of skincare challenges and summer is no exception. Humidity, heat waves and blasting air conditioners can all cause our skin to react in less than desirable ways. Our summer skin dilemmas often depend on our geographic location so we’re offering tips for every region!
Hot and Humid Climates: If your state falls into this category (hello South!) you are all too aware of the havoc humidity can wreak on your look. Fight the effects of humidity with lightweight moisturizing serums like B5 Hydration or Pure Hydration. These Serums will give your skin the drink of water it needs without the added heaviness associated with a moisturizer.
Next, apply a lightweight Primer to keep your makeup in place then apply Pressed Base. Pressed Base is a go-to product for anyone worried about humidity because it’s lightweight, long lasting, delivers semi-matte to matte coverage and won’t clog your pores. You can add even further humidity protection by finishing with Matte Finishing Powder or Perfecting Powder to help absorb oil and shine for a polished look.
Hot and Dry Climates: In states like Colorado and Utah the summer weather is hot and dry which can cause skin to feel tight, dry and flakey. You can combat the dry climate by picking a moisturizer that is lightweight but packed with strong moisturizing ingredients such as Oil Free Moisturizer.
It’s also important to remember to apply sunscreen daily in states with higher elevations because you are closer to the sun’s damaging rays. Here at the Denver office, which is located a mile above sea level, we love Moisturizing Tint SPF 30 because it provides color correction, moisture and has the SPF we need to stay pretty and protected!  
Hot and Hotter Climates: States like Arizona and New Mexico see highs in the upper 100s. And while there is little to no humidity, you still risk melting makeup due to extremely high temperatures. This may seem counterintuitive but adding a spritz of moisture with our Moist Hydration Mist will not only help keep you cool, but will help your mineral makeup last longer.
We also recommend trying a lightweight, moisturizing base such as Sheer Tint Base. This base feels almost non-existent on the skin while providing enough coverage to mask imperfections. In addition to its coverage, it is formulated with our signature blend of antioxidants to help nourish and protect your skin.

Air Conditioning Warning: Regardless of your location, most indoor offices, restaurants and shops blast the air conditioning in the summer. Air conditioners have a tendency to dry out the air leaving your skin feeling dry and dull. If you are an air conditioning addict try a soothing and moisturizing mask like Soothing Gel Mask once a week to help cool, calm and heal your skin.

Hello bright eyes! Our National Makeup Artist, Janeena, compiled an eye-opening list of steps and tricks to help you emphasize your beautiful eyes. Regardless of your eye color or shape, these helpful tips will open and brighten your peepers resulting in eyes that truly POP. Just don’t be surprised when you start hearing “You have such pretty eyes” on the regular!

Step 1: Use a Lid Primer. Not only will a Lid Primer prevent creasing and help your Eye Shadow last all day, but applying an Lid Primer will brighten the entire eye area.

Step 2: Apply a light shade such as Eye shadow in haze across the entire lid.

Step 3: Apply a natural Eye Shadow color, such as mink, in an upward and outward motion to help draw the attention to the highest point on the eye which gives the appearance of more space.

Step 4: Apply Precise Micro Eyeliner in navy along the upper lash line which will make the whites of the eyes appear brighter.

Step 5: Applying Precision Eye Pencil in peach to the lower waterline and inner corner of the eye will help eyes appear more open.

Step 6: Curl lashes for an extra boost of volume.

Step 7: Apply Lash Boosting or Volumizing Mascara to top and bottom lashes for bold lashes.

Step 8 (not pictured): Use Brow Gel in clear to brush eyebrow hair up which broadens the appearance of the lid and opens up the eye area.
