Rock that warm, fresh-from-the-beach glow!
(SPOT.ph) There’s always visible change in the Metro as the temperature starts to rise—breezier clothing, more cars flocking out of town on the weekends, and an abundance of outdoor festivities to make the most of the sunny season. Yup, there’s nothing quite like summer. Even in something as simple as makeup, the onset of warmer days brings about a lighter, more carefree aesthetic. While the chilly holiday season was the perfect time for vampy red lips and sparkly makeup looks, summer is normally all about that effortless, sun-kissed vibe. Ready to rock that always-under-the-sun glow? We round up some peach-toned cream blushes to help you do just that—no actual sun exposure required.
