It’s summer time! When it comes to make-up, less may be more but it doesn’t mean you have to go out with a bare face. In fact, make-up and skincare can keep your skin healthy and glowing, also give you an overall polished look.
But of course, you still need to apply proper skin care and please, do not skip moisturizer in the summer. That’s a big no-no. You need to replenish the moisture because exposure to sun dries out your skin rapidly. Before you start make-up, make sure you apply moisturizer and sunscreen.

Then apply mascara to complete the look.
Use a hair matching eyebrow colour to enchance your features. A pair of groomed eyebrows can make you look more energetic and soulful. Touch up your eye lids with light colour eye shadow from the lash line to brow before you draw eyeliner. It helps to make your eyes look bigger and brighter.
