SUMMER BEAUTY HACK #1: COVERING A SUNBURN
SIR JOHN TIP: While everyone tries to avoid getting a sunburn, unfortunately sometimes it still happens. Luckily, there are some easy ways to cover it up. Sir John recommends using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation ($12.99) along with a green color corrector as found in the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit. The green will neutralize the redness on the skin. Using a makeup sponge like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender ($7.99), dab it into places that are burned the most – areas like your nose and cheekbone.
SUMMER BEAUTY HACK #2: HOW TO — USE MELT-PROOF MAKEUP
SIR JOHN TIP: Melting makeup doesn’t have to be synonymous with heat and humidity. Sir John has a trick to tame eyebrows and keep them in place to weather the elements – spraying hairspray on a thin toothbrush and then gently rubbing it on the brows (in more extreme cases like when on tour with clients, he has used a glue stick in place of hairspray). He then suggests penciling them in with an eye brow pencil like the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer ($8.99). He also suggests using a waterproof mascara like the L’Oreal Paris Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara ($9.99).
SUMMER BEAUTY HACK #3: HOW TO FAUX THE JLO SUMMER GLOW
SIR JOHN TIP: To get the perfect faux glow, Sir John recommends exfoliating with a product like the L’Oréal Pure-Clay Exfoliate and Refine Cleanser ($6.99) the night before you want to tan to prep skin. Then use a self-tanner and apply all over face and body for an even and natural-looking glow. Sir John loves the L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Serum ($10.99) as it’s easy to apply and lasts up to two weeks.
If you already have a gorgeous glow but want to add some highlight to your face, mix a liquid highlighter like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator ($12.99) with a hydrating facial moisturizer from the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius ($17.99) line and apply it on your desired areas.
