Summer is finally here. We have been waiting for warmer degrees, to get rid of winter dry skin and above all the use of heavy makeup. But there are also a few things we don’t look forward to. Makeup that melts, smeared mascara and sticky lipstick. Luckily enough, we got the right products and some bulletproof tips for you to achieve a fresh and light summer makeup.

SPF For Your Face

This goes without saying. Always protect your skin!
