STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — As the weather gets warmer it can be a good time to lighten up your makeup routine.
Lancôme national makeup artist Darais says the key for spring: less is more. He visited KCAL9 Studios Saturday and said during this time it's important for women to pare down, change their skincare, brighten up on colors and even go waterproof.
Skin often responds to the weather differently as things start to heat up. Dewy air may make you prone to turning oily. Darais suggests switching out a heavy foundation for a skin correcting product such as Lancôme Visionnaire. If you're using cream shadows and blushes, try switching to powder formulas. The expert likes using Lancôme Dual Finish Powder & Foundation in One, which has all-day wear good for full coverage and touch-ups.
Spring is the perfect time to try out a bright color. If you're bold, try a bright red or orange lipstick. Or even a colorful liquid liner, such as Lancôme Artliner 24H which is available in beautiful blue, green and gold shades. If you'd like to do something a little more subtle, try a bright polish for your nails.
Look for waterproof formulas that will stay put if you sweat or if you take a dip in the pool.
Most beauty professionals agree you should always be wearing sunscreen. Try layering it underneath your makeup to combat premature aging.
