The summer weather is great for many things except wearing a lot of makeup. In a time when you have so many parties, weddings, and other events to attend, the last thing you want to worry is your foundation melting on your face. During the hot months, you need to make sure that you use products that make you look dewy and pretty instead of sweaty. However, it could be challenging to keep everything in place when it’s hot AF outside. Here are our top tips to heat-proof your summer makeup.
Lighten Your Routine
The key to having a flawless summer makeup is not overloading the skin with products. Before applying any makeup, opt for a moisturizer that has SPF in it. This step will help you use fewer products without compromising your skin protection. Avoid loading lots of powder bronzer by mixing bronzing gel into your foundation to get that sexy, sunkissed look.
Put Powders Aside
Sent your powder products to vacation this summer. Powders don’t do as well under the sun as cream and liquid products. Powder formulas can create a cakey face and look “expired” on hot weather. That’s why it’s best to rely on cream and liquid formulas that blend seamlessly into the skin and can stand high temperatures without looking like a hot mess. Opt for a multipurpose stick that will give you an all-over glow or a dewy cream blush that will refresh your makeup look.
