Skip the melty makeup in the summer
Makeup is great. It can highlight your best features, while helping to conceal blemishes – and for many of us it can be a way to express ourselves.
But in the hot, humid days of summer, makeup can backfire. If you perspire excessively – or at all – you can end up with smudged, melted makeup that can actually make your skin look worse. Not only can foundation streak, but when you’re perspiring and wearing heavy foundation it can clog your pores and lead to blemishes and breakouts.
The sunshine can also be unforgiving. Even if you are vigilant about your sun protection, you’re likely to get a bit of color during the summer months, making matching your foundation tricky. And the bright sunshine will draw attention to a mismatch or any bad blending at the jawline.
Summer solution for beautiful skin
You can avoid the foundation and still have an airbrushed look to your skin with Mellisa B Naturally’s Shimmering Face & Body Primer. Our primer softens skin imperfections while locking in skin’s moisture. Originally designed to be worn under makeup as a primer, the combination of smoothing and shimmer allows you to skip the foundation – and still look flawless.
Its light pigmentation complements any skin tone without concern for a “mismatch” of color, and the Titanium Dioxide in Shimmering Face & Body Primer helps provide protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB radiation. Best of all, it can be used on the face and body to give an all-over glow.
Applied over your favorite summer moisturizer (preferably one with sunscreen), Mellisa B Naturally’s Shimmering Face & Body Primer is an excellent alternative for heavy foundation; you can save the foundation for the cooler weather.
