When the summer months roll around, we look forward to wearing less makeup..
Useful Make up tips:
Makeup melts not just because of heat and sweat, but because of oil. Your skin produces more oil in the summer months, so be sure to grab an oil-preventing cleanser and blot before you apply. Apply foundation only where you need it – and if you can, skip it altogether! Especially in the summer, do not over-apply.
Try using a clay mask once a week to reduce your skin’s oil production.
If you can’t skip foundation, use a primer first, and then apply the foundation with your fingertips. This will warm it up and when you hit the summer sun, it won’t be such a shock.Set with translucent powder.
Use an eye-shadow primer - it helps keep your color vibrant and keep it from sliding or creasing.Cream and pressed powder eye-shadows are best because they’re less likely to move. Silicone-based are also good choices.
Heat up lash curler to really curl them – but do it carefully!
Dust a translucent powder over your lashes (with eyes closed), then apply mascara. It’ll cling to the powder and last longer, your lashes looking fuller at the same time.
Water-resistant is better than waterproof, as it’s less harsh. Test a mascara in the shower to see how it holds up to the hot water. If it passes, you’re good to go in the summer heat!
Use a lip stain rather than a lip gloss or lipstick, it has better staying power and looks most natural.
If you want to use lipstick, try applying foundation to your lips first. It will create a base and help it stay.
Keep a makeup sponge in your bag: so that you can smooth away any creases that develop. Then set the makeup with a light dusting of powder.
NinthAlso keep blotting papers with you for any oil that develops – be sure to blot, not rub!
