Video Quick Tip #67 - April 12, 2011

The temperatures have finally gone above 40 degrees (at least in NYC)! Now it's time to celebrate and switch around your makeup bag to include more summer-friendly shades and formulations.

In the video below, Brett discusses a few of his favorite products that you should add to the mix as the weather heats up.

According to Brett, the key traits of summer beauty products are: breathable coverage, SPF, long-wearing formulas, and warm, peachy shades. And what are the must-have products he loves?

Jemma Kidd School Light As Air liquid foundation, SPF 18 - This foundation feels like a tinted moisturizer but with a touch more coverage. It's a breathable formula, but really stays put - perfect for those hot summer days!

Clinique City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector, SPF 25 - Perfect for layering under makeup, this sheer physical sunblock reflects the rays off the skin, and is oil-free. Great for active gals that like to be outdoors a lot!

Benefit Cha Cha Tint - This new mango/apricot version of Benetint (launching in June) is great for ladies who aren't a fan of pinky lip and cheek stains. The new shade goes great with bronzey summer skin and has the long wear that Benetint is known for!

Bonnie Bell Gel Bronze - This cheapie drugstore bronzer can be worn alone on good skin days, or for a warm glow everyday, add a bit to your foundation and apply together! Brett recommends the golden shade - it's the most universally flattering.

Now go start your 'spring cleaning' and prep that makeup bag for warm weather!
