Choose too dark eyeshadows and eye pencils
Smokey eyes in the summer? Yes, but with some variations on the theme so as not to darken your complexion! The 2021 make-up trends have shown us that this type of make-up should not be abolished, but simply made with colors different from the classic black and gray.

Use incorrect eyebrow pencils
In the summer it is very easy to mistake the color of the eyebrow pencil. The hair tends to lighten and take on warmer shades, consequently the products we use all year round risk being too dark and cold. There are different eyebrow palettes, even inexpensive ones, which allow you to mix the different shades of brown with each other, obtaining the perfect shade.

You must take into account that in this season the golden color also requires suitable products, especially for the eye area. To make sure you cover the eye area with the right shades, try mixing the concealer you usually use with one that is a couple of shades darker.
Make a lip make-up using nude lipsticks that are too light
Certain lipsticks that we also love to apply on a daily basis, especially those nude And delicate, they may look great in the winter but really appear too clear with tanned skin. The risk of giving the idea of having gray and purple lips is high: therefore opt for warmer colors than usual, even if you are wearing a mask!
Abundant with bronzing powder
Okay give yourself a touch of additional color in the summer, perhaps evening out the complexion and covering any non-tanned areas, but don’t get carried away during the use of the bronzer! From a beautiful, very natural gold, to an orange Umpa Lumpa style the step is really short, so remember to do your makeup in moderation.
