5 Summer Makeup Tips To Beat The Heat
Summertime means two things : temps rise and makeup runs. How do you keep your makeup looking fresh? Read here for 5 Summer makeup tips to beat the heat.
Summer is a time to look fab in new clothes and those cute sandals you’ve been waiting all winter to wear.
But summer also means heat. Not only will your ice cream melt faster, but your makeup will as well.
If you plan to go shopping soon, you should know what products to buy. That way your summer makeup will hold up and not waste money.
Not everyone knows the ins and outs of makeup application by the season. Keep reading for tips on how to keep your makeup from melting and smudging through the summer heat.
Exfoliate Your Skin First
Our skin is topped with dead skin and hair follicles. These particles will keep your face from being able to hold makeup for long.
You can use a microdermabrasion kit, or you can try dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is done with a flat, sharp utensil used to scrape away excess dead skin cells. It makes the face a smooth canvas for application.
You can’t exfoliate without following up with moisturizer.
If summertime is too humid for you, try a tinted moisturizer for comfortable coverage.
Tinted Moisturizer is great for when you don’t want to suffocate your face with too much makeup. It will also provide protection from dryness and give your face color.
Winter can do some damage to your lips, but summer has a way of dehydrating us. Dehydration leads to cracked lips making lipstick application messy and inconsistent.
You can still pucker up with smooth lips if you remember to exfoliate them. Don’t forget to wear lip balm with hydration and SPF to protect them from the sun.
Foundation for Summertime Beauty
When choosing makeup for hot weather, it’s important to think about wearability. Again, you don’t want to be overburdened.
Experts suggest using a foundation that is full coverage but using less of it. This way, you’re not piling on too much with your sheer foundation.
Only use it to cover up the important parts of your face. Applying to the center will provide cover and eliminate the feeling of having too much makeup on.
It’s easy to get stuck in one palette tone when you’ve found a favorite. But a great summertime makeup tip is to experiment with some color in place of neutrals.
Adding color to your face with eyeshadows or peachy blush will brighten it up. It will also give it a beautiful summer glow.
