So how are you preparing for summer? I know it’s quite early to talk about it but you can’t blame moi; summer is when I get two weeks off from work and celebrate my most anticipated milestone, I turn four-ohhh!!! *throws hands in the air*
With the hot humid weather coming our way, it goes without saying that I change my routine so I don’t look like a human molten lava walking down Waikiki. Here are five ways you and I can summer-proof our beauty! (reviews are linked)

1. Swap full coverage foundation to light, or better yet opt for multi-tasking tinted moisturizer and/or BB cream with built-in sunscreen. An all-in-one product allows your skin to to breathe more. Try Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer or Rodial BB Skin Tint.
3. Swap dark smokey eyes with simple eye makeup. My easy take on this is to tightline my upper lash with black liner and apply a coat of mascara. Still struggling with tightlining? here’s how I do it. In days I want to rock bright colors, I line my lower lash line with teal or purple eyeliner.
4. Swap dark berry or neutral lips with bright coral or purple! With an understated eye makeup, I can’t be without color so moi go mighty bold with puckers. Try Tom Ford Lip Sheer Firecracker or Bite Beauty Matte Lip Crayon Grape. Caveat: I go through phases in lipsticks, what you see me wearing in the morning isn’t the same in the afternoon or evening. And yes, I break he monotony of corals and purples by going back to berry.
What are you looking forward to this summer?
