MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #1: BB CREAM
It’s officially summer—and you know what that means: Days of humid weather ahead! Instead of wearing a heavy foundation while you’re on vacation, reach for a lightweight BB cream. Have your pick from the options below:
L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream: You can’t go wrong with a classic, like this BB cream! It’s formulated with beautifying beads, encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidant vitamin E. As for what it does, you can expect it to prime to smooth skin’s texture, correct skin for an even-looking complexion, hydrate for all-day moisture, and perfect to hide imperfections.
L’Oréal Paris Magic BB Anti-Redness (For All Skin Tones): Prone to getting red in the face? Then it’s time to get in on the color-correcting trend and reduce the appearance of a flushed face with a green-tinted BB cream. In addition to neutralizing the look of redness, this BB cream corrects skin color for an even-looking complexion, hydrates for long-lasting moisture, and perfects the appearance of your complexion.
L’Oréal Paris Magic BB Anti-Fatigue (For All Skin Tones): Overtired is no way to look on vacation! Perk up with this BB cream, which is formulated with color-transforming pigments to help revive the look of a tired complexion, correct the look of your skin, hydrate, and perfect.
MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #2: BLUSH
It’s the perfect season to rock a dewy-looking flush—and an easy way to achieve one is by swiping on a cream blush in a shade that complements your skin tone. Draw small circles onto the apples of your cheeks using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Shaping Blush Makeup Sticks (available in two skin-flattering shades), then blend out using a makeup blender. Prefer a powder formula? Use a blush brush to apply the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup. Not only are the pretty shades perfect for summer, but so is the fruity scent!
MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #3: LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER
Go with the glow! Fake radiant-looking skin this Memorial Day weekend with a little help from your makeup. Pick a liquid highlighter, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops, which can be worn alone to illuminate specific areas or mixed with your BB cream for an overall radiant look.
MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #4: WATERPROOF MASCARA
As far as makeup formulas go, using waterproof ones is never a bad idea during the summer months when you could be more likely to experience melting makeup thanks to the weather. Plus, there’s always the possibility that you’ll end up in a pool. So, pack the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara with you for your MDW road trip. There’s nothing quite like mascara to tie a look together, is there?
MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #5: LIQUID EYELINER
Put down your basic black and paint a trendy shade across your lids to start the summer off right. Create an updated take on the cat eye by using the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Rose Gold. It’s the perfect, subtle way to participate in the metallic makeup trend! If you haven’t quite mastered liquid eyeliner yet, don’t fret. You can create a colorful look with a waterproof pencil eyeliner instead! Draw on a summer-worthy wing with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in True Teal.
MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #6: EYE SHADOW QUAD
Don’t bother packing lots of single eye shadows for the long weekend. Keep your makeup bag from getting unnecessarily over filled by bringing just one palette that has all the shades you’ll need, whether you’re lounging during the day or heading to a nighttime Memorial Day celebration later on. The L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette is just right for the job, featuring 12 warm-toned eye shadows with a variety of pigments.
MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #7: LIPSTICK
Nothing screams summer quite like a glossy pout. Instead of achieving supreme shine with a lip gloss, pucker up and apply a lipstick with an ultra-shiny finish. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick comes in a variety of fun shades, ranging from bright pinks to vivid violets—all of which are perfectly suited to summer.
MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #8: BRONZER
Summer just kicked off—and using bronzer is the best way to fake a golden glow. Use the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Bronze It Bronzer. Dip a fluffy makeup brush into the powder and sweep it softly over your skin, focusing on cheekbones, forehead, chin, and décolletage for a healthy, golden glow.
MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #9: Setting spray
Warmer temperatures can make keeping your makeup in place a serious challenge. And you know what that means—setting your look is essential. Of course, you won’t want to pack on lots of powder. Rather, you can set with a spray. A few spritzes of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray and you’ll be good to go all day long. Not to mention, you’ll be a total hit with your friends because everyone will want to borrow!
MEMORIAL DAY MAKEUP MUST-HAVE #10: MICELLAR WATER
Don’t forget about taking your makeup off at the end of the day! After all, vacation doesn’t mean taking a break from removing your makeup. Bring a bottle of the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types with you, plus a pack of cotton pads. When it’s time to unwind at the end of the day, simply saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your face and closed eyes to remove your makeup.
