Tips and Hacks That Will Make Your Makeup Survive the Summer Heat
Summer comes bearing gifts, beaches, sun tans, and music concerts. But it also comes with challenges with heat making it so difficult to maintain your makeup as it is, it either melts, wears off, or gets ruined once your oily skin starts shinning and producing so much grease. I know what you’re thinking but no, going without makeup isn’t the only answer, because I will reveal to you the secrets and hacks to make your makeup last in the hot weather.
Don’t underestimate the effects of a good primer
When attending a special occasion, you’ll want your make up to stay put, and investing in a good primer can make that happen. Not only it will make the whole application process easier and smoother but it also will make the makeup stay much longer.
Don’t let your oily skin get in the way
Before applying makeup make sure to wash your face with a good hypoallergenic wash, wipe it with toner to adjust your skin's pH and apply a non-oily moisturizer, this will help with the oil production. Another important tip, is to use an oil-free foundation that has SPF.
Your foundation shouldn’t be heavy in the summer, go for a light long-wear formula or skip it entirely and use concealer of the same shade.
Layering things up
This could be a life-saving tip for summer makeup, whenever you are applying your base makeup make sure you layer products with different textures. In other words, when you add foundation or concealer set it with power but don't blot it. Use a cream blush and set it with a powder blush and this applies to bronze and contouring as well.
Make your Lipstick last longer
Use a long-lasting lipstick and apply powder after the first layer, then put lipstick again and so on. This will make it last even longer.
You’ll want to use waterproof mascara and eyeliner because they stay longer and they won't melt off from the heat, but of course, you knew this already.
Setting spray is more than a final touch
Now for the ultimate tip, instead of adding a setting spray at the end, you can add it between layers and of course at the end. This will help your base makeup stay attached to your face all day or night long.
