Can you believe it’s already summertime? People across the country are going out and doing the most to enjoy the season with things like beach parties, lazy days at the pool, hikes, and picnics. We all want to look our best and feel comfortable while doing so, but the sizzling summer heat can be a problem. Things like heat, moisture in the air, and sweat make it a challenge to keep your makeup in place. No one wants to spend a day out checking their reflection every 20 minutes. Thankfully, there are ways to enjoy the summer sun without sacrificing your makeup.
Let's start with primer. Primer is a base your makeup will stick to no matter the weather outside. Primers are clear, except color correcting primers, and come in a variety of formulas for different effects and concerns. There are primers for dry, oily and combination skin types and primers that give you a matte or glossy finish. Asides from keeping everything in place, primer makes it easier to apply makeup, which will glide on smoothly and blend flawlessly.
If you’re going to be in direct sunlight sunscreen is a must. But you might be hesitant to put your usual makeup over the slick sunscreen and you think you’ll have to pick one over the other. Well, you won’t have to if your sunscreen works hard! Try tinted sunscreens that even include a moisturizer. You’ll have sun protection, foundation coverage, and moisturizer all in one. This strategy helps you look great while saving a ton of time in the morning.
Sweat doesn’t mix well with powder since powder tends to cake when moistened. Give alternatives like creams, gels, and balms a try. Finishing balm is a great alternative for pressed powder touch-ups throughout the day. Cream eyeliner and eyeshadow stay in place better and using blush tints will give your cheeks that healthy glow that won’t melt throughout the day.
Lastly, the best makeup tip of the summer is to keep it light. The heavier the makeup the more likely it will run. Luckily, one of the hottest trends in makeup this summer is the natural look, which is easy to achieve with just a few products. Go for light colors and your makeup will look nice all day.
