Summer Make-Up Insider Tips!

Be a dazzling summer beauty! Check out these five make-up tips from Wende Zomnir, Executive Creative Director of Urban Decay and Hard Candy cosmetics.

1. Wear sunscreen topped with bronzer. First, apply your sunscreen. Try Kiss My Face for Face & Neck. Let it soak in. Brush your teeth. Do your hair. Then put on your bronzer. Try our Baked Bronzer in “Baked”, which adds a little shimmer. Or for no shimmer, try “Toasted”. It goes on flawlessly to create a glowing, healthy, tanned look. The result is a featherweight, long-wearing, streak-free bronzer. You’ll be surprised at how good skin looks with just a little bronzer.

2. Going to a party at the pool or beach? To avoid looking like a raccoon after taking a dip, try Urban Decay Galoshes for Lashes. It coats your favorite everyday mascara and makes it waterproof.

3. Naturally stunning and glowing is the way to go for summer. To give lips and cheeks a long-lasting, you’d-never-guess-it’s-not-natural flush, try Hard Candy Stain & Shine. With a roll-on sheer stain on one side, it delivers a beautiful bloom of color to lips and cheeks that won’t rub off. The other side of this duo product is a see-through, sparkling gloss. Stains are wonderful for summer because they wear well and complement sun-kissed skin.

4. Want a bronzed goddess look? Apply a light smudge of golden-bronze shadow on your lids. My favorite is Urban Decay Chopper. It has just enough warmth in the shade to be flattering, yet bronzy enough to be sexy! Plus it’s infused with tiny golden flecks that just add to the aura. To ensure that your perfect shade stays in place and doesn’t crease during steamy summer days and nights, get the ultimate summer eye shadow essential: Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion. You’ll never know it’s there, but it’s like a magnet for shadow.

5. With all of the bronze and neutral-toned makeup for summer, what can you do if you want to add a little color? Try some colored mascara. It looks amazing in sunlight. Plus, it’s a great way to stand out from the crowd and add a little energy to your look.
