We all love summer, and BeautiControl has everything you need to keep you protected and looking great through the summer heat. Here are a few tips to help you keep your look safe from summertime makeup melt-down!
Avoid Makeup Mishaps
Tangerine Tango may be the color of the season, but that doesn’t mean that everyone should wear it, especially when it comes to choosing makeup colors. A common makeup mistake is coordinating your makeup shades to fit your wardrobe. Regardless of what clothing colors you choose, your makeup should work with your natural skin coloring rather than coordinate with your outfit.
Yellow based colors, such as orange, yellow, teal, mint and coral look best on those with golden (warm) under-tones, which is typically characterized by naturally red or strawberry blonde hair, and skin that burns or freckles in the sun. Blue-based colors such as blue, pink, purple,turquoise, and grey look best on those with blue undertones, which is typically characterized by blonde, brown or black hair and skin that tans more easily in the sun.
To discover the colors that are best for your unique coloring, BeautiControl’s eBeauti is the answer. eBeauti’s eColor computerized analysis will identify your skin tone and create a custom fit profile to assist you in choosing the right colors for your clothing and cosmetic wardrobe.
Summer Makeup Made Easy
On-the-Go Makeup: Going “natural” doesn’t have to mean going without makeup. Summer makeup should be easy to apply and durable enough to stand-up to the heat and humidity. 4 products is all it takes to be out the door in less than 5 minutes:
- A tinted moisturizer with an SPF will both moisturize your skin and even your skin tone for a flawless look without foundation that keeps your skin protected from UV damage.
- Look for a multicolored bronzing powder to serve triple duty as an eye shadow, blush and bronzer when dusted across the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.
- A water-proof mascara that can stand up to heat, humidity, and even swimming and exercise.
- Look for a tinted lip balm that contains an SPF to keep your lips hydrated and protected yet give you natural wash of color.
Viva La Glam: Look “hot” this Summer with color that is natural, light-weight, yet durable enough to withstand the hot Summer sun or those even hotter Summer nights:
- A lightweight liquid makeup is appropriate for all skin conditions and can provide a natural, yet full-coverage finish to the skin. Be sure to choose on that contains an SPF for added protection.
- Cream eye shadows are the perfect choice for the Summer. Not only do they contain a built-in primer for added durability, but they blend effortlessly and offer a sexy shimmer that is sure to get attention.
- A cream blush is a must-have. They blend naturally into the skin creating a glow that brightens the skin without looking harsh and un-natural
- Look for lip colors that have built-in hydration to keep the lips hydrated, supple and in kiss-ably soft.
Beat the Summer Heat
Avoid Makeup Melt-Down: Makeup primer is one of those must-have products. Not only will it help control oil during the warmer summer months, it will also minimize the appearance of pores, lines and wrinkles. Applied before your liquid or powder foundation, you can increase your makeup wear and prevent makeup melt-down by the end of the day.
The Faux Glow: Looking for a custom fit bronzer? Create a natural looking glow by choosing a powder foundation that is 2 shades darker than your normal shade and dust onto the face with a large powder brush. This will keep your "tan" in line with your natural coloring, giving you a more natural glow.
Try BC Color Perfecting Wet/Dry Finish, the most versatile foundation/powder/bronzer you will ever use. Portable enough to take with you wherever you go, and durable enough to stand up to the toughest heat and humidity.
Brow-WOW: A clear mascara or lash primer serves double duty. Not only can you get longer, fuller lashes, but you can create perfectly defined brows, keeping them groomed and color-fast in the summer heat.
Stay a Little Longer: To help your eye shadow and lip color last longer, apply your foundation to both your lips and eyelids. By priming them with foundation, you will minimize imperfections and help lip color and eye shadow to stay on longer and remain transfer and crease resistant.
BeautiControl’s Regeneration Tight Firm and Fill Concealer. Enriched with age defying peptides as well as an SPF, this durable smudge-proof concealer creates the perfect finish while providing anti-aging benefits to the delicate eye area and protecting from UV damage.
What Lies Beneath: The key to flawless makeup is healthy skin. Make sure that you use products that are customized for your unique skin condition. To ensure healthy skin, make sure your skin care regimen includes the following products that:
- cleanse without stripping the skin of natural moisture
- hydrate and prevent moisture loss
- protect against UVA and UVB radiation as well as oxidative damage
- exfoliates dead surface cells to encourage the production of new skin cells

Stay Protected: When you think of summer, you think of sun. The sun is not necessarily our enemy in the summer and it certainly isn’t the only thing that you need to think about when considering skin protection products.
The sun is a key source of vitamins and nutrition for our overall health. Some sun is actually very good for us, as a key source of Vitamin D. When thinking about sun protection, keep your ABCs in mind:
- A = Away - Stay away from the sun in the middle of the day
- B = Block - Use SPF 15 or higher
- C = Cover up - Wear a T-shirt and a hat
- BC Spa Facial Defend and Restore Moisturizers – will provide you with daily SPF protection that will prevent both burning and skin aging, while providing you with a broad spectrum of antioxidants to protect from oxidative skin damage, encouraging healthy new cell development.
- Cell Block C Multivitamin Capsules – this product is a year-round must have, but has special features that will help ensure healthy skin during the summer months. This products is made up of a super-high concentration of key antioxidants in a silicone base that will help control oil and shine during the day. A winning combination for Summer skincare needs.
- BC Color SPF Lip Balms - available in a clear or tinted formulas, these lip saving wonders will moisturize and protect the delicate skin on your lips from moisture loss and UV damage.
Get Some Hair-apy: If you are one of those who like to spend a little quiet time out by the pool with a book (or a trashy gossip magazine), multi-task by giving yourself a deep conditioning hair mask to restore the luster that can be robbed by the sun during summer months. Apply BeautiControl’s BC Spa Solutions Radical Hydration Concentrate to the hair as a hot oil treatment, then slather your hair with
BC Spa Body Ultra Rich Body Moisturizer as a deep conditioning moisture mask. You will LOVE the way your hair looks and feels.
