Humidity calls for a change in make-up routine. After all, who wants a look with runny lipstick or smeared eyeliner? Learning a few summer makeup tips can help you pick the right products that will keep you looking fresh and dewy all day long. Due to humidity, even if you have invested in super-expensive products, you might feel disheartened. It is essential to pick the right products and follow some tips that can beat the summer heat.
All you need to do is make a small effort while choosing cosmetic products for summer. Here is how to do that:
Makeup after shower
Applying makeup after a hot shower, which is warm and sweaty, allows the ingredients of the product to soak into your skin, which leads to acne and breakouts in the long run. While in a rush, splash your face with cold water and then start with your makeup routine.
Choose a good primer
A primer is a base and it acts as a shield to protect your skin by not allowing any chemical product to have direct contact with it. So, choose a primer that is oil-free to prevent pore congestion.
Your best bet for this effective summer. Choose a water-based foundation that is waterproof as well. Lightweight concealers and foundations help you last longer on sunny days.
Your all-time saviour on extra sunny days. Combining a water-based foundation with a sunscreen not only protects your skin from the sun but also locks in the base to stand firm on skin.
If you want to have a matte look, top it all with a fixing powder. Choosing a translucent face powder over a tinted face powder will do the trick.
Waterproof for eyes
When sweaty days exist, your best pick would be waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Replacing cream-based products with waterproof is the best thing you can do to make your eyeliner and mascara sit still on your eyes. You definitely don’t want to use your creamy eyeliner, which melts down over your face. Do you?
Do not avoid lip care. As we all know, summers result in dehydrating our bodies. The skin on our lips is more sensitive compared to the rest of our faces, which results in chapped lips. Adding a lip scrub routine and lip balm with spf would keep your lips hydrated.
Travel with blotting paper
Carry a blotting paper bag with you at all times. Just lightly press the blotting paper on your face. It automatically absorbs excess oil or sweat without ruining your makeup.
Setting spray to top it all off
No one has time for touch-ups. After all is done, set your summer makeup by using a setting spray to carry that glow all day with makeup on.
Highlights for a radiant look
Try using a powder highlighter over a liquid or creamy highlighter to avoid looking too shiny. Yeah, you can thank me later!
