Just as you do with your winter wardrobe, the arrival of summer calls for you to swap out your makeup products for something that's a bit more - shall we say - golden? Harsh winter tones no longer belong on your face, so here's a few ideas of how to perform your conversion.
For starters, your skin does require a foundation that's a shade or two darker than your winter hue, so be sure to stock up on a tinted moisturizer or lightweight foundation that won't clog your pores.
Bronzer is an excellent item to add to your arsenal of beauty products, and you can use this in place of your normal blush or as an added way to introduce a sun-kissed glow to your face. Sweep it over the parts of your face that are normally exposed to the most sunlight, such as your cheekbones, browbones, nose and forehead.
Finally, as makeup artist Jillian Dempsey told StyleList.com, bronze is an excellent substitute for eyeliner in the summer, as "bronze is a forgiving way to wear smoky eyes, and it looks amazing on everyone."
