Makeup during the summer time melts easily with all the humidity and heat.
But having said that, you can have a cool and sexy looking makeup if you use the following summer makeup ideas that we have for you that will have you look like a ray of sunshine has touched your face…
1. Never Over-Apply Your Makeup In The Summer
Never apply makeup over makeup in the summer. Take some time to wash off the old makeup and apply a fresh coat… It will make you look more like a fresh daisy than a wilted rose.
2. Avoid Anything That’s Cream-Based
Avoid using any face makeup products that’s cream-based, such as cream-based eye shadows, cream-based blushes, cream-based lipsticks, as they tend to wear off and run under the hot sun.
Instead, you should go for makeup products that’s powder-based, such as powdered eye shadow, powdered blushes, and so on.
3. Avoid Using Foundation In The Summer
Avoid applying any foundation onto your face during summer to try cover pimples as most of the time, they most likely result in you suffering from an acne outbreak.
This is due to the fact that, as a result of the summer heat, your pores tend to open up bigger and the foundation that you apply will clog the pores, causing an acne outbreak, as well as outbreaks of blackheads and whiteheads.
If you want to hide any acne, scars, blemishes or dark spots, opt for mineral powder instead.
4. Drink More Water To Keep Your Skin Hydrated
Also, drinking more water will keep your skin hydrated, so that your blemishes don’t show up as much.
5. Get A More Youthful Look In The Summer
To get a more youthful look in the summer, here’s what you can do: Use a light-colored blush (go for a powdered or gel blush instead of cream or mousse blush as it will melt under the hot summer heat) and run it down from your temples to your hairline (instead of just solely on your cheeks).
6. Use A Lip Stain Instead Of Lipstick In The Summer
You’ll want to use a lip stain, instead of a lipstick during summer as the latter tend to melt, smear, and also smudge in the summer heat.
As to what color should you wear, we would recommend wearing a natural colored lip stain.
7. Blot Away Excess Oil From Your Face
Last but not least, make sure you do not leave home without your oil blotting sheets – They come extremely useful in the summer, since our face will excrete more oil.
You may also want to bring along a packet of facial wet wipes to help you wipe off sweat on your face (and keep yourself cool), as well as clean up makeup that runs in the heat.
