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.
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.
