Summer beauty tips
By Olivia Henthorn
2 key tips to staying beautiful during this summer vacation.
BB cream: This product acts as a foundation that is more appropriate for the summer time. It is light-weight and has SPF protection of 15 or higher. The SPF is vital in BB cream’s for summer because it protects the skin from harmful sun rays. BB cream lightly covers up redness and pimples. BB cream also is cheap and it can be purchased at the drugstore for about $5-8.
I recommend Maybelline’s tinted BB cream. It is cheap and the cream comes in many different shades that will match your skin tone. Always remember to put a thin layer of powder foundation to set the BB cream, you wouldn’t want it to melt off would you?
Lip stain: Lip stain is a form of lipstick that is perfect for the summer time. It stays on all day and is not heavy at all. Different from a lipstick, a lip stain actually stains your lips to ensure that it will last all day, and it does not have a stick feeling to it when you put it on. The packaging traditionally looks like a marker and sometimes has a moisturizing balm at the end of it.
Lots of different brands make them, and they come in an array of colors. The best brand at the drugstore for this product is Revlon, although it might cost more than the average tube of lipstick. Lip stain really does last forever and it’s fun to try.
