Mid-summer is upon us so it’s a perfect time to accent your new summer tan. Femme Couture has the perfect products to highlight and bronze creating the “just back from the beach” look. Try these four products and it’s guaranteed you’ll be asked where you spent your weekend.
For a soft, subtle glow use Get a Glow powder all over.
2. Complexion Enhancer
To create fabulous and defined cheekbones use Get Radiant. It only takes a pea-sized amount – a little bit goes along way! Dot the product along the cheekbones blending up and outward to accentuate this area. For added drama, you can blend it on the bridge of the nose and just above the upper lip.
Femme Couture has perfect choices of Baked Mineral Bronzer for any skin tone. To create the most natural, sun-kissed glow apply under the cheekbones, along the forehead, down the nose and along the jawline.
4. Lip Gloss
Finish off the beach look with Lip Luster lip gloss. Choosing a natural, yet high-sparkle shade will highlight your lips while looking as if you barely have anything on. My favorite is Smooth Coral. It’s perfect universal and looks great on anyone.

If you’re like me, mascara is one of the most important products in my beauty routine. I want my eyelashes long, black and the finishing piece to my smoky eye. Dried and clumped mascara can absolutely ruin my day.
Luckily, Texas summer taught me a valuable lesson on how to extend the life of my mascara. I left my mascara in the car one day (I know! My poor, precious makeup) during a rushed morning. I had dinner plans after work so I got in the car, grabbed my makeup bag and started freshening up my face. Astonishingly my mascara was like new! The sun had heated up the product, dissolved the clumps and it looked ‘wet’ like a brand new tube.
However, here is a tip if you don’t feel like leaving your mascara out in the sun for a few hours:
- Grab a microwave safe cup, fill it halfway with water
- Put it in the microwave for a minute or two
- Remove the cup from your microwave
- Place your tube of mascara in the cup
- Let it sit for a few minutes while you apply your other makeup
The heat from the warm water will soften the mascara and loosen the clumps. Voila! Who doesn’t love a life-extending makeup trick?
