5 Makeup Must-Haves for Summer

If we’re not complaining about the cold here in Minnesota, we’re complaining about the heat. We’re not there yet people, but pretty soon we’re going to start sweating. And ladies that means, we’ll be sweating that makeup off. That means now is the time to start changing up your beauty routine. The founder of War Paint International Beauty Agency, Jessica Mae, stopped by with her 5 Makeup Must-Haves for Summer.

1. Ditch Your Foundation! It’s heavy and can look cakey on hot summer days. Use a tinted sunscreen instead. Jessica likes Elta MD or a BB Cream from Tarte Cosmetics.

2. Waterproof Mascara is a Must! Jessica loves MAC’s False Lashes Waterproof. She says it’s not super tacky or waxy like other waterproof formulas and it gives volume and length. It’s also easily removable with your makeup remover. No scrubbing those lashes!

3. Protect your lips! Jessica loves Sugar Rose from Fresh. It hydrates your lips and protects with SPF 15. It also has a great rose tint to it for a little pop of color. The formula comes in multiple shades.

4. Don’t forget to bronze! Who doesn’t love a bronze goddess? Get a summer glow without exposure to the sun’s harmful rays. Jessica loves Make Up For Ever’s Pro Bronze Fusion and applies it with a fan brush for a natural finish.

5. Get your coral on! Coral is one of Jessica’s favorite tones to play with in summer months. Her go-to blush is MAC blush in Melba.
