A Redhead's Guide to Summer Skin Care

Having fair skin can sometimes be a burden. This is especially true during the summer months when you can get a sunburn from just walking to the corner store and back. The sun can be merciless. So how does a redhead survive the summer?

Makeup with SPF!!!

Finding a foundation or moisturizer with SPF is absolutely key to surviving the summer. So do you choose a basic foundation, BB Cream, CC Cream, or tinted moisturizer? On the surface (pun intended) they may seem very similar, however each brings something unique to skin care. Let's find which one is right for you! 

A tinted moisturizer is, surprise, a moisturizer with a hint of pigment. It’s significantly lighter than foundation, which makes it perfect for our lovely freckles. The moisturizing aspect nourishes your skin and usually has around SPF 15. The tint evens out your skin tone and acts as a light concealer for blemishes.

CC Cream stands for “Color Correction.” CC Creams are very similar to BB creams, meaning they hydrate your skin and blur imperfections. The main difference is that CC creams have more pigment to cover redness and blemishes. They are really the perfect medium between tinted moisturizers and foundation. They are lighter than foundation but offer more coverage and a more even skin tone than tinted moisturizers. They also have more skin care benefits than foundation, in addition to varying SPF levels. CC creams are particularly good for redheads because we tend to have more redness in our skin.

So which one is right for you? Both come with extensive moisturizing properties and SPF, which makes them perfect for everyday wear. It really comes down to what type of coverage you are looking for. For a light even tone, the tinted moisturizer is best. If you are looking for a bit more coverage for blemishes and redness, then I recommend a CC Cream. And to follow it up, try a simple makeup setting powder that will even the overall tone and soak up any excess oil.

Summer Glow

This summer it's all about the glow. Golds, peaches, and pinks! Whatever brings out your inner goddess best. So how does one achieve this seemingly simple look? And let's be honest... Emma Stone makes it look effortless. We recommend highlighting your cheek and brow bones with a light shimmer cream, in addition to an overall simple makeup look. 

In honor of this summer trend, we have added an new shade to our shimmer cream collection. Charmed is a light rose pink and, like the Rose Gold, it is perfect for getting that summer glow. 

So what is so unique about our shimmer creams? First, they are free of nasty parabens. Second, they are mineral-based and feature Mango Seed butter, Grape Seed Oil, and Camellia Japonica Seed Oil- which, when all combined, creates a velvety, non-greasy formula.

Now you can do something good for your skin and let your inner goddess shine through! 

 

 

Summer Beauty

1. ‘Love your freckles’ 3-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer

With SPF 15, this moisturizer is perfect for an everyday light coverage. In summer less is definitely more, so you don’t want to overdo it on the foundation. A tinted moisturizer offers just the right amount of coverage while allowing you freckles to shine through.


2. ‘Welcome the Day’ Flawless Finish Powder

Perfect for finishing your makeup routine, our translucent powder will work throughout the day to soak up any oils and even out your skin tone. Tinted powder is overkill and often has a caking effect. However, a translucent powder instantly blends into the skin, giving it a finished look.


3. 'The Nymph' or 'The Muse' Lip Stain!

Minimal makeup with bright lips is in! Swipe on a layer or two or three of a lip stain and have your lips stand out! A lip stain is particularly perfect because you can you use it in addition to lipgloss or lipstick and as the top layer fades the stain will continue to provide color.


4. ‘Color me happy’ Brow Tint

Depending on your shade, this may just be a great way to fill in your brows or it may be the answer to your prayers. For those born with blonde (verging on invisible) brows, the 'Blonde' shade is a perfect way to give yourself natural looking brows. Our brow tint doesn't smudge and will last all day- check out the reviews!


5. ‘All Over’ Face and Body Shimmer

Summer is all about the shimmer. Put our gold or rose gold shimmer ‘all over’ (eyes, face or arms) and glisten like summer intended.
