With summer in full swing, how do we combat some of the biggest beauty hassles that come along with it – from sunburns to melting makeup? Check out each one of the following beauty hacks we have for you.
L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sir John, shares his top hacks on how to cover a terrifying sunburn, how to keep makeup from melting and how to fake a tan (and avoid those sunburns!).
Sumer beauty hack #1: Covering a sunburn
While everyone tries to avoid getting a sunburn, unfortunately sometimes it still happens. Luckily, there are some easy ways to cover it up. Sir John recommends using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation ($12.99) along with a green color corrector as found in the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit. The green will neutralize the redness on the skin. Using a makeup sponge like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender ($7.99), dab it into places that are burned the most – areas like your nose and cheekbone.
Sumer beauty hack #2: How to use melt-proof makeup
SIR JOHN TIP: Melting makeup doesn’t have to be synonymous with heat and humidity. Sir John has a trick for your eye brows that not many know about – Elmer’s Glue. To keep your brows in place, he recommends taking a hairspray and spraying it on a thin toothbrush to then rub it gently on your brows. Then pencil them in with an eye brow pencil like the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer ($8.99). He also suggests using a waterproof mascara like the L’Oreal Paris Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara ($9.99).
Sumer beauty hack #3: How to faux the JLo SUMMER GLOW!!!
SIR JOHN TIP: To get the perfect faux glow, Sir John recommends exfoliating with a product like the L’Oréal Pure-Clay Exfoliate and Refine Cleanser ($6.99) the night before you want to tan to prep skin. Then use a self-tanner and apply all over face and body for an even and natural-looking glow. Sir John loves the L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Serum ($10.99) as it’s easy to apply and lasts up to two weeks.
If you already have a gorgeous glow but want to add some highlight to your face, mix a liquid highlighter like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator ($12.99) with a hydrating facial moisturizer from the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius ($17.99) line and apply it on your desired areas.
