  • I keep it simple with Dakota and 'less is more' is a good strategy for summer makeup. Moisturizer, concealer, some liner, mascara, a pinch of blush, and some tinted lip balm is enough.

  • A tinted moisturizer gives a hint of color and is much lighter than foundation for the summer.

  • A cream color blush on the apple of the cheeks imbues a flushed glow. Pink and corals look beautiful and fresh on fair skin.

  • I like bright lipstick. It really pops and brings out the coloring in porcelain skin.

  • Fair skin can get away with a myriad of colors on the eyes, so this is wear you can have fun and experiment.

  • Yes, fair complexions can wear bronze shades—on the eyes. Bronzed eye shadows look beautiful on blue and green eyes. Golden browns look quite beautiful on brown eyes and make them appear lighter.

  • Black liner in the water line of the eyes followed by a very sheer, well-blended application of bronze or golden shadow on the top lid and under the eye is a great summer look. This looks a little smoky, yet still fresh and youthful.

  • To perfect skin without making it look tan, apply a pearlized highlighted or sheer, light golden-colored cream on the arms and legs. This will pick up the light and make them appear sleek and lean. Focus on the areas that reflect the most light: apply down the shin bone, center of the thigh, collar bone, shoulders, and down the front of the arms.
