Summer Makeup Tips to Sweat-Proof Your Look:
1. Moisturize the skin
I know many of you avoid this step during summer thinking about the sticky feeling on your face due to the humidity. But do not neglect to moisturize your skin in the summers. We believe that it makes our skin oily and sticky and we avoid using it and neglect this important step.
Top Picks of Moisturizers:
Clinique Moisture Surge
It is on the higher end when it comes to the price but also one of the best moisturizers out there especially if you have dry skin. I have been using it since last year and I love how the skin feels after applying it.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel
This is also one of the best moisturizers especially in the summers and for those with oily skin as well. It is ultra-light and also non-greasy which is perfect for summer. It also creates a perfect base for makeup.
The Face Shop Fresh Jeju Aloe Soothing Gel
This is the perfect moisturizer to soothe, moisturize, and heal your skin. This will last you for months and a trick to make it perfect for summer is to cool it in the refrigerator. Applying this icy cool gel will help soothe your skin and fade away puffy eyes in the morning.
Plum Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer
This is also a great moisturizer filled with antioxidants and also silicon-free and non- comedogenic. It is also vegan as well as cruelty-free. It is non-greasy and has a matte finish mostly suitable for oily skin.
2. Applying sunscreen
It is very important to use sunscreen, especially in summers. You can see why sunscreen is important in my blog post all about sunscreen.
The sun can harm your skin and the only solution is to apply sunscreen throughout the day. Any kind of makeup routine must include applying sunscreen before whether it be anytime throughout the year, not only summers. Make sure to apply sunscreen on the face as well as your neck.
3. Using a primer
Now, you may feel like why an additional layer especially when it is so hot. But primer is the way to go during the summers. They don’t feel heavy and helps a lot to hold the makeup in place. The primer will help in setting the foundation on the skin without smudging.
4. Using BB cream and concealers
Using less makeup is the key to prevent it from creasing and melting off in the summers.
You can use tinted moisturizers, BB creams, or concealer rather than using foundations that feel heavy on the skin and makes you sweat more especially in summer. You can just apply concealer on the acne spots or any discoloration. BB creams also are useful as they work as sunscreen, primer, and tinted moisturizers.
5. Eye shadow
In summer, we all want to the makeup light and bright, hence go for nude colors or bright eye shadow colors. Use an eye primer before applying eye shadow which will ensure that your eye makeup lasts longer and minimize creasing. Wear bright shades to make your eyes pop.
6. Use cream blush
Blush gives any look balance and healthiness, but using a powder blush during summers will get cake-y faster. Instead, use liquid or cream blush which will not only last longer but also give a natural flush to your cheeks.
7. Using lip stains instead of matte lipsticks
Toss away the matte lipsticks and replace them by using lip stains in the summers. Lip stains will make your lips shine and last longer. The best thing is that you can always keep adding lip balm for moisture without having to worry about the color going off.
8. Waterproof mascara
Don’t want raccoon eyes, then switch to waterproof mascara in the summers which will not smudge off and last longer. Or instead of applying any mascara, you can also just curl your lashes with an eyelash curler.
These are some of the summer makeup tips which will help your makeup last longer in the hot and humid weather. Let me know in the comments if you try any of these tips as well as share your thoughts on what you think of these tips and tricks.
