Summer is all about dewy skin and bronzed cheeks. To up your style game, the key is to wear less makeup and play with fun colours. This season also calls for letting your skin breathe by opting for breezy and loose-fit clothes. Another important part that needs some air are your feet; one should try to keep their feet aired, and by which can also show off the vibrant pedicured nails.

Here are a few tips for pretty feet and summer makeup

Vibrant nail veneers
Red or pink nail polish are lovely colours, but why not have some fun and switch to a bolder colour; vibrant coral is the Pantone shade for 2019, a colour that suits all skin tones. An open-toed sandal will do justice to your playful feet.

Right footwear
While we all love a pair of stilettos, summer can be a time where we can experiment with strappy Roman sandals and even sneakers. With fashion going shorter on the hemlines, sneakers will give you that trendy athleisure look that is in vogue.

Home remedies for your feet
You can use a mixture of olive oil and sugar to get rid of dead skin and reveal healthy and soft feet.
Soak your feet in warm water, with a few drops of shampoo. Along with this, scrub your heels with a pumice stone, and push back the cuticles and clean the nails. Apply a coat of body lotion a few times throughout the day, and apply a moisturiser on your feet every night before you sleep.

Go for sandals
Wear sandals that have a higher footbed. The raised sides keep more of the dirt from reaching your soles and toes. Invest in sandals which are made from materials that breathe and absorb sweat. Carry wet wipes with you, make sure they are of the recycled variety so you can wipe your feet off as and when needed.

Stay hydrated
Drink water for great skin; when one is healthy within, it shows. With a lot of cruelty-free organic makeup available these days, one can opt for a
light concealer and a luminescent face powder. Top off super-glossy skin with sheer, minimal makeup done in neutral and nude shades with eyeliner and lipstick, you will look as youthful as a summer day.

Colourful eyeshadow
As coral is the colour of the season, we can’t help but add more colour to our makeup palette. One-colour look is in, which do not require too much blending. The other colours which can be played around with are magenta, light pink, bright yellow, and baby blue.

Soft lips
While cosmetics to create a vibrant eye and cheek looks are in, lip pigments can go soft and balmy. Translucent lip cremes help create an illusion of plump fresh appearance to your lips.
