Get A New Foundation Shade for Summer!

Do you need a new foundation shade for summer? In terms of skin tone, some people look exactly the same year-round. This can be true if you’re extra-careful about avoiding the sun, for example. However, even using sunblock every time you go outside doesn’t guarantee that there won’t be a minor change in your skin tone from winter to summer.

“[D]espite your best efforts to slather on the SPF and stay out of the sun, there’s a good chance your face will be slightly darker in July than it was in January. You’ll want to choose a shade that enhances your sun-kissed skin rather than make it look pasty,” advises beauty writer Lisa De Santis.

That’s why Smart Cover’s makeup kits are so ideal. The Deluxe 10-Piece Starter Kit comes with three shades of the Concealing Crème. With the Light kit you get Light, Medium and Dark Beige. With the Dark Kit you get Golden Tan, Dark Beige and Deep Beige.

Remember, you can blend shades to find your perfect match. Just squeeze a little of each (about a dime-sized drop) into the palm of your hand and mix them together with your finger. Then apply.
