9 Summer Makeup Tips to Help You Beat the Heatby Pathlie Lee Business consultant
Summer often means a ton of outdoor activities. If you’re planning to make the most out of sunny weather conditions with parties, games, and more, then ensuring that you look great while you’re having a blast adds to the fun. Here are easy-to-follow makeup tips you’ll want to keep in mind before you go out under the sun.
Put on sunscreen
Exposure to UV radiation is harmful to your skin and lead to conditions such as skin cancer, so don’t forget to apply sunscreen. However, since many foundations only come with 15 or 35 SPF, you’ll want to reapply to make sure you’re protected against the UV rays. Do it every two hours.
Look for makeup that lasts
Airbrush makeup has better-staying power since they can last for as long as six to ten hours longer than traditional makeup, the Wedding Wire says. You’ll want to switch to airbrush foundation, then, if you want makeup that’s going to last you throughout the day. If you’re attending an outdoor wedding or going to a beach party, choosing the makeup that can easily withstand tears and sweat, the humidity and heat of summer, should go on top of your list.
Get a primer
Primers make a huge difference. They prep your skin and make it easier for the makeup to stay longer, Good Housekeeping says. Shop for excellent-quality primers that can blur your imperfections without feeling heavy on your skin.
Add a bit of warmth to your skin with a bronzer. Focus on applying it to the high points of your face where the sun naturally hits. That’s going to improve your look a lot and help you get ready for the summer.
Wear less makeup
Too much makeup leads to creasing and caking. Wear less of that for the summer. That or go for airbrush makeup kits. Airbrush is well-known for leaving a fine finish. That’s one way to get the coverage you need without ending up with caked or creased makeup.
Skip the shimmer
It’s fun to experiment but you may want to reserve anything luminous for the evening. The extra humidity will already turn you sweaty and that’s going to make your skin shine. Go for nude shades or pick makeup options that will give you a subtle dewy glow instead.
Get water-resistant makeup
If you plan on going on a swim, get waterproof versions of the makeup you use so you won’t end up with raccoon eyes. Add a waterproof mascara or silicone-based foundation makeup—which is common in airbrush foundations—to your kit.
Ditch the powder formulas
Powders can make you look cakey under the summer heat. That’s another reason why you’ll want to switch them out with liquid, cream or gel makeup. You’ll get a more dewy and supple look to your skin for that.
