make it mark. this summer (and every season)

los angeles is in full summer weather mode! the days are nice and warm, and the evenings have that slight chill. now that summer has made its way, there are a couple of things i think will make your summer a little bit more enjoyable and easier. my tips for this upcoming heat?

  • drink water! i know it’s repetitive and cliche, but H2O will be your BFF this season (and every season after that)
  • moisturize with SPF
  • apply lotion/cream with SPF (your skin will LOVE you for it)
  • protect your eyes with sunglasses
  • there is nothing wrong with going sans makeup!

but how will mark. help keep you stylish without overdoing it on the eyes, lips, and face? here are my mark. picks for the summertime:

before you head out for the outdoors (or even if you’re heading out for the mall), don’t forget your SPF. your moisturizer with SPF will help protect your skin against the sun’s damaging rays. but once you get home and ready to slow down for the day, wash off dirt and oil with a cleanser that can also protect your skin against breakouts.

plan to go out in full makeup? don’t let the heat stop you! before you add foundation or powder, apply face primer and eye primer to keep your makeup on. then, when you’re ready for foundation, pick a tinted moisturizer instead of heavy foundation.

don’t forget to add some drama to your eyes. but how do you do so without looking like you’re crying black tears? use waterproof eyeliner & mascara!

for your lips, pick a subtle colo (or layer for a dramatic lip). but, again, don’t forget your spf! your lips need to be protected too 🙂
