a beauty post: summer beauty 101

summer is all about fresh and simple colors. no need too much make up or else you'll look cakey, ew!
Here I'll show you some of my beauty tips for your summer vacation, so that you won't look like a clown in the middle of the beach :)
1. Cleanse, Moisturize & Protect 
To start off, ALWAYS cleanse your face! Cleansing your face will avoid irritation, break outs and also redness. So, grab your fave cleanser and wipe out all those yuckie germs out of your face!
For sensitive skin, I suggest you to use uber gentle cleanser that wont irritate your skin such as:

When you're done cleansing your face, don't forget to moisturize it and also protect your skin using your fave moisturizer and sunscreen. This part is really crucial and you don't want to skip it! unless....you want your skin to dry out and expirience the hyper pigmentation. ughh no way! :x

2. The Base

 For the base you have tons of choices, like using today's beauty bomb the BB cream, tinted moisturizer, liquid foundation, powder foundation,primer  or even to simply skip this step. now you might have a lot of choice here but you don't want to
 pick the wrong one or somehow your make up will melt right away under the sun! I personally suggest you to use the lightest product to avoid smudgy face at the end of the day. And dont forget to lock your base using high quality loose powder!

3. The eyes

Now let me tell you that the eyes are the key to successful or fail make up!
eye shadow:  keep it simple by using earthy, natural color. You don't want people to notice your eye shadow too much    
 as if you're going to a party.
*ps: don't forget to highlight your inner corners, it will instantly brighten up your eyes!
eye liner: don't over do it! remember, a little goes a loooong way :)
mascara: make sure it's waterproof and yes, you can use it as much or as less as you desire. anyway, don't forget to curl your lashes before you coat it with your mascara. this little step here is really gonna help you achieve that oh-so-flirty lashes!
brows: don't use extra dark dramatic brows. that look wont suit the beach day,dear. I suggest you to use angled brow brush and fill in your brows using brow powder. Sleek make up have this super cool brow kit that you can bring everywhere!
4. the cheeks&lips
okay so this part is really going to help you get that fresh sun kissed look. for the blush, a creamy blush will do. simply add a little amount of cream blush to your finger and apply it to your cheeks using circular motion. and my tip is don't use pink dolly cheek/lip color for this occasion. you want to keep it fresh and natural. orange,salmon color is the perfect choice :)  for sexy bronze look, obviously swipe some bronzer using a bronzer brush to your face. this will give you that healthy glowing summer skin! 

5. The hair
