Stay Stylish with These Spring and Summer Makeup Tips

May is just around the corner and for most of the U.S. the warm weather is already here, and judging by how hot it has gotten in the past couple weeks things probably won’t be cooling off again until it’s time to shop for the new fall looks. But warm weather means more than just fun in the sun; it means it’s time to think about changing your skin care and makeup regimen for the warmer months to come.
The best place to start looking for inspiration for your new style is the spring runways, which have featured very feminine and demure designs this year and paired those designs skillfully with soft, natural looks. Spring and summer makeup this year is going to be very subdued, with plenty of earthy blushes and natural flesh tones of shell, taupe and caramel. These colors paired with nude and cream colored lips and a modern matte finish create a very natural look that is flattering on almost every skin type. Remember to complement your style with a colorful and feminine short dress.
If you are feeling particularly bold one warm sunny day there are plenty of more daring statements to be made as well. For example neons are back with bright orange and tangerine colors leading the way. This color is perfect on the lips if you have a darker complexion or can be used for truly dramatic effect around the eyes. But remember that you have to make a choice, go heavy on the neons in both places and you’re only a bad perm away from looking like you fell out of an 80’s movie!
As always good skincare is a must in summer, and don’t forget to protect yourself with a good SPF if you plan on being out in the sun for long periods of time. Whichever look you decide to go with remember to stay away from the heavier products when makeup shopping this spring, thicker products tend to have much more grease which will crease and melt in the heat, not to mention wreak havoc on your pores.

And always remember spring and summer are about youth and natural beauty, so let be sure to accent your best features and remember that sometimes in fashion less is more.
