It’s so easy to get in the same one-two-three routine with your makeup. Summer is a great time to freshen up your look and get out of that makeup rut. Here are some tricks to help you liven up your makeup looks without spending a fortune.
1. Make your own illuminating tinted moisturizer

Mix your foundation with a liquid illuminator. This formula will give your skin a dewy glow and will mask imperfections.
2. Try your favorite lipstick shade on your cheeks

Make your own custom cream blush from your lipstick. It should last all day, even through the summer heat.
3. Go daring with your eyeliner color.

In the summer, there’s no need to stick with just brown or black. Try a rich navy blue, plum, or olive green for a fresh change—these hues will make your eye color pop.
4. Skip the brow fill-in
