Top Six Beauty Secrets for Summer

Summertime is the perfect time to try out new beauty tips! We at Barbizon of Akron have collected up these favorite tips from our staff to share with all of you. Give them a try a let us know on our Facebook Page what you think!

Blush: Blush can give you a natural glow but make sure you don't become "too rosy!" Apply your blush two finger widths away from your nose and keep it on the apples of your cheeks. This will give you that natural rosy glow without going overboard.

Hair Lift: Give your hair a lift by spraying a volumizing spray to your roots. Blow dry it in while holding your head upside down. This will instantly give your hair a fresh and volumous look.

Pumped and Primed: Use an eye shadow primer before applying your eye shadow. It gives a nice foundation for the eye shadow to adhere to and helps to lock eye shadow into place.

Clarity: Use a clarifying shampoo to help remove excess build-up that you may have accumulated during the
winter months. Clarifying shampoos also help to remove chlorine from hair after the pool and will help minimize damage. If you're blonde, it will also help prevent your hair from turning green.

Call in the Replacements: Make-up loses it's effectiveness over time, and can also become a breeding ground for bacteria! Keep products fresh by replacing them every three or so months at least. Also remember to keep make-up tools, like brushes, clean and sanitary!

Dry it Out: Have a new fresh pimple? Dab some toothpaste on it before bed. The toothpaste will dry out the pimple overnight.

Good luck and we hope that these tips will help some of you tread some new ground. Every body is different, and the best way to find out what will work for you is to just jump in and try new things! Shine on, Barbizon of Akron!
