Have you heard? It’s the last weekend of summer which means the monsoon season is coming. While this really isn’t much cause for alarm (think: you can now layer clothing and wear those kick ass boots), beach bunnies like us may feel a little bummed with this change in weather.
Good thing we only need to turn to makeup to help enhance or prolong our hard-earned tans. I’m not one to pile on makeup, so let’s simplify our kit and focus on just 3 beauty products from the Honey Haze set of Pop Beauty.
1. Sunkissed Bronzer in Secret Sunshine
This finely milled bronzer works as a skin illuminator-slash-blush on tan skin, while it can add an extra glow and that sunkissed (as the name implies) look on fair skin. Here’s what I do: I slather my favorite sunscreen, apply powder, and finish off with the bronzer to soften the look (or counteract any white cast from the SPF). It’s very forgiving so even newbies can apply this hurriedly in the morning.
2. Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio in Naturally Bare
These gorgeous neutral shadows offer a natural wash of color on lids. Use them as is or (here’s a trade secret) mist your brush with the Pixi by Petra Makeup Fixing Mist first before dipping your brush for a more intense color payoff.
3. Pouty Pop Crayon in Barely Bitten
Who doesn’t love these jumbo crayons? They’re reminiscent of our Crayola days plus are foolproof to apply. Barely Bitten finishes off this beach-y look with a slightly peachy nude hue, but what I do is apply this on the cheeks instead when I’m lazy! This is especially useful for those no-makeup looks at the beach where you’d rather tote one product for lips and cheeks.
Finish off the look with tousled hair: spritz a bit of sea salt spray, tie your hair up in a bun while damp, and then ruffle it up once dry.
