ow that you have the clothes figured out, what about the makeup? I found amazing tips from Memorial area makeup artist Tonya Riner. If her advice is good enough for Heidi Klum and Beyoncé, then I think I better start listening!

Lighten Up! Summer Makeup Tips “Making your skin appear healthy and radiant is the best place to start. Trade your foundation for a lightweight

tinted moisturizer or foundation serum. Keep in mind that a sunscreen with an SPF of no less than 30 should be worn under your makeup. Your foundation should be used sparingly and doesn’t provide enough protection.” Try: NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Diorskin Nude Air Serum

“Bronzers add a sun-kissed glow. Use them on the

areas of your face where the sun hits. Blend them around your hairline, the bridge of your nose, your cheekbones and chin. If you want a bit of contour, push the bronzer under your cheekbone for a chiseled look.

“Highlighters illuminate and enhance the contours of your face. Use them in the inner corners of your eyes, your brow bone and your Cupid’s bow.”
