Summer Beauty Made Simple (Re-loaded)

It's Fashion Friday and I'm Starting out with a guest post  for Reflexions by Fierce.
She is a community blogger on Yahoo! Shine and a part of the Fashion and Beauty channel’s Shine Beauty Guru panel. Here is her Summer Beauty Tips for us, enjoy:

I’m soo thrilled to be guest blogging over here on Reflexions today and I just can’t help but talk about my first love – beauty!
Though the summer is my favorite time of the year, it’s also the hottest time, which means there’s more room for the elements to wreck havoc on your beauty routine! We all want to look good as we sit pool side or attend those outdoor summer parties so the crazy temps should stop us right? So here are some quick and easy beauty tips to make sure that you look good while you have fun this summer!

Give your skin some extra pampering!
Because makeup will be at a minimum, it’s important to make sure your gorgeous skin shines through! It’s a great time to treat yourself to a facial or two to give your face a good exfoliation as well as replenish it with the essential vitamins that keep your skin looking fresh! A great one to try is the Triple Oxygen Facial at Bliss Spa. If a facial isn’t in your budget, there are great at home products you can use. My favorites are the Triple Oxygen Energizing mask from Bliss Spa and the Mary Kay Microderm Abrasion Set.

Tinted Moisturiser is the Way to Go!
Foundation is way too heavy for these summer months (who would want to have your make-up to melt off?!) So your best option to keep your skin moisturised while giving you sheer coverage is using a tinted moisturiser. There are great brands to choose with different price points to fit your budget. I just ran out of my Mary Kay and until I find the Covergirl one that I really want, I’ve just been mixing a little bit of my foundation into my daily moisturizer, which works just as well!

Let your lips have all the fun!
As much as I love my eyeshadow, it pains me to go through all the time applying it, just to have it sweat off as soon as I step outside! So I’ve been giving them a break and experimenting with bold lip color instead! Not only is it a hot trend this season, it’s much easier to add a pop of color to your beauty look and reapply when you need to!

You can go for a soft, natural gloss, like this one from Avon in Constant Coral or get bold with Covergirl LipPerfection in Tempted.

What are your tips and tricks for looking great this summer?
For more on what beauty products I’m using this summer, check me out on my blog Fierce!

Great post MJ! I agree on wearing gloss in the summer. It's simple and elegant too.

Yay! Great post about beauty MJ. I love bliss spa! For summertime I usually just wear a good blush or bronzer actually & just a gloss. I don't like too much makeup in the sun, & I'm loving all golden eye-shadows, which gives me a nice glow in the sun. This coral lip colour looks nice. Thanks! -xo

Rachel Joy said...

Great tips. I love playing around with different lipstick color but I think my lips are shaped funny so I stick with chap stick or gloss at best...

Laura said...

Oh, thank God! This is exactly what I need! My summer beauty has been less than existent. One question: I have developed hideous freckles on my face after years of sun-baking. I seriously look like I have dirt on my face when I get any amount of sun. Tips? (I do have a face bleaching cream the derm gave me, but I can't use it if I'll be in the sun, and I'm in the sun everyday!)
