Summer Makeup Tips

  • Layer Your Products. Makeup needs something to adhere to so proper preparation is key! First prep with sunscreen and then follow with a silicone based primer. Silicone based products are ideal for summer makeup because they don’t melt when mixed with sweat, water, humidity, etc. If possible try to give 2 minutes between each step to allow the sunscreen and primer to properly absorb into the skin. Silicone needs time to adhere to the skin and if you apply your foundation, concealer, etc too soon you might notice that your makeup doesn’t last as long as it should.

  • Set any liquid foundation with a touch more powder than you normally might want to. Don’t worry about the cakey makeup look because the humidity will help to blend everything together and soften the powdered look. Obviously don’t go overboard but… a little extra powder never hurt anyone. Setting with powderis important because it helps to lock your liquid/cream products in place. Otherwise the moisture in the air will mix with your foundation and it won’t ever set up properly.

  • Use a cream blush to add soft, natural color to the cheeks. Some people don’t like cream blush and others absolutely love it so it’s definitely a personal preference. I, however, am of the opinion that powder blush tends to fade, streak, and look crazy when we’re sweating so I like to avoid it on super hot days.

  • Use a dense flat top brush to apply setting powder instead of a fluffy brush. Instead of lightly dusting the powder onto your face make a conscious effort to press the powder into your face. This will help to press everything together and keep your makeup looking fresh longer.

  • Don’t forget to weather-proof your eyeliner and mascara. Melt-proof makeup is all fun and games until you realize that you’ve accidentally put on “regular” eyeliner when the weather clearly requires a waterproof formula. Standard eyeliner formulas don’t hold up well in high heat/humidity situations and you definitely run the risk of looking like a raccoon once they start to migrate. Let’s skip this dilemma completely and vow to reach for waterproof eyeliner and mascara on incredibly hot/sweaty days.

  • Once you’re finished with everything make sure to apply a makeup setting spray. This one is probably pretty self explanatory but setting sprays help to lock everything into place and give your makeup a little more insurance.

  • Hope you like 😊
