For summer you only wash your face with good face wash,
apply moisture or light lotion.

Use slight pink/peach undertones/blush, for that extra sunshine glow.

Only slight makeup, or go completely nude (make-up wise).

Keep your face clean and dirt-free, since summer is the season of sweat and outdoors. Wear a headband or use something to dab away any excess oil/sweat/dirt.

Water-resistant mascara/makeup.

It's summer so less it better, apply lotion and just keep up with makeing sure you are healthy. A powder foundation at your skin tone would look good and maybe a slight blush or very light make up on the eyes and lips would look good. You can go on youtube and look up make up tutorials.

well first use face wash then start with a light foundation then use a light water proof eye shadow with some no-clump water proof mascara and also a fun eye liner color(your choise if you want just go with black) then go with a light pink blush for you cheeks! just remember if you are gonna stay home dont use any make-up. if you go somewhere like with youre friends then use some make-up. dont over do it if its just getting ice cream with your friends if youre going to a party then go a little heavier! :)
p.s. dont forget the lip gloss:)

I would say light, vintage colors. But not too bright. Like maybe for lipstick a really pale pink. (Almost white) and for the eyeshadow a light yellow would do. Again, not too bright. Almost like a yellow that blends with ur skin. You don't have to try these together or even at all. just suggestions. You may even be the kind of person who doesn't need makeup. But I'm not a makeup genius supermind. So don't expect these two to be perfect.
Have a nice day :)

Before you even think about putting makeup on you should always wash your face to remove any oils or dirt from your skin, because if you apply makeup over it, it can cause more damage (such as aging and your skin being super oily). Then use a multi-active face toner to even out your skin color, and you would spray that all over your face and neck. Then use something light like a BB cream or tinted moisturizer to moisturize skin. In my own opinion I would NOT do something heavy like concealer or foundation because you can sweat it off and you'll look oily anyways. After that apply very little powder so you don't look "cakey". and if you want to put a light pink or bronze color to your face to give it some highlight. Now here's the fun part: color. on your eyes dont use eye liner,use colorful eye shadow and use it as an eyeliner. take neutral colors on your lid, crease, and brow bones, and highlight the inner corners of your eyes. then take a pretty blue or pink or whatever compliments you and line your lower lash line. curl lashes and put on 1 thin coat of mascara. moisturize your lips add baby lips or your favorite lip gloss and your good to go! ^.^ have fun!

Some great makeup tips would be to not go heavy with your makeup. It's summer and its hot! Some tips would be to wear either a light black or brown mascara because it looks natural. Also BB creams are great for when its hot I would recommend Maybelline dream fresh BB cream its amazing a really great for skin. Hope my tips helped!

using a oil free base primer and some BB cream goes great for the summer! Also prime your eye lids so any eyeliner that goes off doesn't become raccoon eyes! Finish up your looks with wax base brow pencil and some natural tinted lip stain for cheeks and lips top off with Urban Decay De-slick spray and your good to go ! if you can get a setting spray get a translucent power don't over powered you don't want to look like a cake!

Alittle always goes a long way, especially in summer! Lighter colors can help accent alittle bit of eyeliner and some mascara. Stay away from any foundations so your skin can breathe freely and not break out from the summer heat.

I wear makeup very often so ican relate i am also very active at the same time. During summer u want a soft but bright look. Summer is hot u will sweat u will get wet and u will get dirty and makeup isnt for that so during camps or beaches no makeup, light gloss or blush would be good for that or water prof maskara works. But other days u want a soft pink, red or orange glossy lip color and a rosey pink blush to pop out ur cheek bones and maskeria and eyeliner always look good and to find the perfect lip color is to see what colors make ur eyes pop. And for a gorgeous girl like u im sure all this will be easy. ;)

I would say none because im 13 and I've already learned to accept my face the way it is. You just need to realize that putting makeup on ruins your natural beauty and you'll have to wear it forever because that's what people will love you for... Have a nice Summer though :)

Make sure you are using a good moisturizer because in the summer skin can get really dry and flaky. If you want something light then lip gloss and maybe a little bit of natural looking eyeshadow and maybe some light pink blush. If you are planning on going to the pool or something I honestly wouldn't wear any makeup. I would stay away from pink eyeshadow because a lot of times pink will make your eyes look like they are swelling or you have bad allergies.

well first off, what is your eye color? for summer it's great to use two tones for eyeshadow. use a warm, shimmery color such as orange on the lid (orange is wonderful for brown and blue eyes). with the orange, use a dark brown or purple (these are both complementary to blue or brown eyes) and fan it out from about halfway across the lid. this will be a gentle smoky eye

I love make up. But I always say less is more. But there are some things that some people just HAVE to put on.. If you want to hide any blemishes then use a foundation. I suggest powdered because it sits better and if you have glasses they won't slide. For your eyes and lips just pick bright fun colors. But not to bright like neon colors. For eyes I would suggest a light "summer" color eyeshadow. Like green, blue,yellow, or even a white. For your lips I would say just a clear gloss or if you want lipstick, use a light pink. Also black eyeliner makes your eyes look smaller and white eyeliner makes your eyes look bigger.

I think you want to go with a natural look. Apply foundation, a generous coat of mascara, some eyeliner and maybe a coral lipstick to complete the look. I also brush on some blush to add color to my skin. It works well for me and it looks natural, like I'm not trying too hard. I have an ELF Makeup kit that I've used for a while now and I love it. Find and use makeup that best suits your skin type and tone.

use some light colors like orange (orange lipstick is a great hit)
I agree with less is more so a little bit foundation make-up is enough (I suggest u to use bb cream especially those from Korea or Japan, it combines foundation with sunscreen and it's lighter than traditional foundation)
use a little eye-shadow, just a little with white or yellow(just a little so that ur eyes wont look like traffic lights lol), no or little eyelash(way too heavy for summer)
and at last remember to wash ur face after using make-ups or u'll get greasy and u wont like it.

i love make up Hopefully like u, so for summer i would suggest something bright so u can show it off. Such as for lips the color and be light pink or pink. And for Eye shadow, Maybe white, yellow (that's a good color) or pink

The main thing is something bright and to show off

Not that much either so then u can wear it anywhere :)
