According to trend forecasters, fashion week runways and anyone in the know, makeup and style for summer 2016 skin should be dewy, glowing and natural. Sounds simple right? Good news – it is! A flawless, fresh-faced complexion doesn’t take as much work as you might think. Try these tips to get a naturally glowing look with minimal effort.
Start with your skin care
It’s true that makeup can do wonders, and good strobing is positively magical, however, to keep your maintenance to a minimum, start with a solid base - your face. Keep it hydrated with a rich, creamy moisturizer and smooth by exfoliating it at least once a week. Since summer is sun-exposure central when skin tends to dry out, think about introducing more moisture to your skin care regimen, and according to the experts, do that with Royal Jelly. Royal Jelly is a honey bee secretion packed with complex B vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, minerals, enzymes, natural antibiotic properties, and antibacterial properties that is best applied onto your face before bed at night, and then before you apply makeup in the morning.

Treat your mirror like a kitchen
When you think about it, the best chefs are skilled at combining ingredients or using them for dual purposes with surprising success. This same logic also applies to your makeup bag. For starters, rather than applying foundation then highlighter, add a drop of highlighter to your foundation, and then apply it with a brush or sponge; this creates a slight glow all over, which gives your face sheen, even if you keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum. On a similar note, blend a creamy matte lipstick and a gloss with sparkle and then pat a small amount onto your cheekbones for a youthful, flushed look. And if you want a little extra sheen, mix things up by adding a drop of coconut oil or avocado oil to your usual cream blush. It’s all about experimenting!
Finally, don’t forget your lips!
No dewy look is complete without a lightly hued, glossy pout, just make sure to keep it in the flesh, pink or coral families, so as not to overwhelm. In other words, super sheen and red or a 1990’s brown lip may be too much, but a soft, kissable mouth goes perfectly with your new, grown up girl glow.
