Although summer doesn’t officially start until June 21 in the United States, for many of us, summer starts on Memorial Day, May 26th.  For those of you who are eager to start the summer, here are Face2Face Africa‘s tips on how to transition your makeup between seasons irrespective of whether you are going from winter to summer or rainy to dry season.

Unless you live on the North Pole, then you are likely embarking on warmer weather – and this doesn’t mean you can’t have a flawless face.

Below, you will see what are some of the products I have used on myself and my clients during the warmer months.

3. Liquid lipsticks. These are long lasting and eliminate the chances of it being smeared.

4. Tinted moisturizer. They are sheer, blend easily, and will even out your skin tone.  As a bonus, look for a version that has light-reflecting pigments to boost your glow. (TIP: Mix your foundation with an equal part of face lotion to create your own tinted moisturizer.)

5. Bronzer. There’s nothing like having a product that will illuminate your highlighting areas water(don’t worry, we’ll have time to go over which areas you should high light) and be “splash-free” at the same time.

In addition to these five tips, I urge you to drink lots of water. It offers many benefits: not only is it good for your body organs, but it also keeps your lips soft along with keeping your skin supple and acne free.
