Thou shall let your skin breath
Wake and bake is cute and all but in these hot summer months where your skin is being attacked by humidity, ice-cold AC’s and the sweat of hot summer lovers it’s great to skip cakey foundation. Sunscreen is always a must but since most sunscreens have a very sticky consistency you’re better off with keeping everything you apply on top as light as possible. Also, make sure to wash off any residue of said sunscreen and sweat of summer lovers before going to bed. Ad an extra hydrating serum into that nighttime routine and wake up glowy, fresh and ready to seize the day.
Thou shall sip from that holy grail
The entire Enfnts Terribles team thinks I sound like a broken record by now but drink the damn water! All these barbeques with rosé are not doing our skin any favors so make it a habit to order a glass of water with every cocktail. Nobody wants to wake up with those fine lines around the eyes and lips caused by dehydration. So we’re sippin’ on that good ol’ H2O all day every day. The thirst is real and we are not hiding it this summer. Bottoms up!
Thou shall match like it’s game day
It’s 2018, and if you do choose to wear foundation on these hot, humid days may I remind you that it’s cuter to wear the color you have and not the color you aspire to be. Quick tip on buying a new foundation: always test in natural light, test a few shades on your jawline or neck, since this is usually a closer match than for example the back of your hand. Deeper complexions usually have more than one shade in their face so it helps to swatch on the chest-area just to be sure. If you applied the shades you’re doubting between, squint your eyes while looking at them, the one shade that “disappears” into your skin is your closest match.
