This summer, bring on the glamorous look and keep your make up looking great with fun tips this new makeup tips. As beauty specialist, Olivia Chantecaille, the creative director of Chantecaille Beauté tells Forbes, summer make up is all about bright, fun color options. Chantecaille was born to be a make-up guru. Her mother Sylvie was the senior vice president and creative director of Prescriptives, a cosmetics brand under Estee Lauder. Chantecaille has been sharing beauty tips with busy, professional women since 1997, and has traveled around the world.
Your first summer tip: less is more. According to Chantecaille, during the summer, “sometimes too much makeup during the summer months can make a woman look older.”
Next, think lightweight. In hot, humid temperatures, heavy makeup is a no go. Try using oil free creams and serums. Sun protection will be mandatory so choose primers with SPF or a matte powder with SPF.
Be bold. Try new colors on your lips like coral and poppy pink.
Lastly, as your traveling on your business and vacation trips this summer, stay moisturized. “To keep skin hydrated while flying I always apply a moisturizing mask and spray rose water on my face throughout the flight,” Chantecaille reveals. “If you find yourself in the sun, be sure to carry a face powder with a high SPF to apply over makeup. They are quick, easy to apply and convenient to carry about.”

When choosing a concealer for bronze skin, it’s important to consider what part of the face you are concealing, as well as the formula and the tone of the concealer.
Commonly, women choose a concealer a few shades lighter than their natural skin tone. That is a mistake and will lead to a “reverse raccoon” effect, with an unnatural white half-moon under the eyes. Instead look for a color that is as close a match to your skin coloring on your cheek.
Concealers to try under the eye:
Double-duty Black Opal Fade and Conceal Concealer is a favorite because it covers and lightens. It comes in a tube for quick application and the creamy consistency makes it easy to blend. For all skin types. Helps treat uneven, discolored skin. $6.75
IMAN Cover Cream has colors and tones that work with all shades of bronze skin. They come in a convenient pot, so application with a brush to cover a blemish is simple. Additionally, popping Iman Cover Cream over dark under eye circles with fingertips is an extremely user-friendly option. It’s long-wearing, natural looking maximum coverage for blemishes, under-eye circles and discoloration. $12.99
Josie Maran Argan Blend Concealer is my go-to “green” concealer. The two shades included in the palette allow each user to customizer their concealer. The hero ingredient is organic argan oil, which heals and hydrates skin. The medium and dark compacts work for all shades of bronze skin. Corrects and conceals flaws and highlights skintone. Conceals dark circles, blemishes, age spots, and redness. $28
