Gradually Rising temperatures and burning heat, have officially announced the arrival of summer. Heat during the Summer weather can cause sweat, which can affect makeup to spread or come off easily. Today I am going to share some tricks to your routine that can leave your makeup looking flawless all day. When you’re done, you’ll have a stunning look that should resist the heat and humidity. When you use makeup in the morning and it will constantly stay with you throughout the day. Is it not a great impression? It would be great to not have to do mirror notes all the time.
I think we have all owned that moment specially on summer days where we watch in the mirror to see that the makeup we applied earlier has now smudged or disappeared altogether. Moreover, It’s that time of the year again when heat, humidity, and sweat are likely to create plunder on your skin and makeup. So, ladies, you don’t want your face to melt and look like an impressionist painting, it’s time to resort to the right summer makeup and skincare routine.
Let’s discuss why this makeup smudge up is occurring in the first place. Several factors contribute to our makeup fading or smudging.
Our skin’s natural oils can create shine and wrinkles in makeup. This is especially true on our eyelids. But oily skin can create a severe problem for long-lasting makeup. Please make sure you’re properly caring for oily skin before makeup goes on.
Continually touching your skin can spread or lift makeup off your face, not to mention cause potential breakouts. And we all know what rubbing your eyes can do to makeup.
Maybe you are using the wrong makeup for your skin type or your skin’s needs. Some specifications offer, moisturizing, waterproof benefits. Moreover, sometimes lesser quality makeup doesn’t have the staying power of better quality brands. If you want to stick with names, try to avoid some of the cheaper labels if you’re looking for last ability.
No matter what times you need to prolong the wear of your makeup if your skin isn’t prepped properly with skincare than your makeup won’t look smooth or last long.
First, before using any kind of makeup, clean your face with your regular soap or cleanser. Any kind of makeup will stay on a clean face longer. This will also help remove any sweat that’s already stuck to your face. Moreover, it will help to make your skin clean.
Ice cubes soaked with home ingredients like milk, green tea or cucumber work efficiently to soothe the skin during summers.
Icing your face with ice cubes reduces inflammations, boosts blood circulation, soothes the skin and tightens it as well, all of which in turn improve skin quality and help your makeup look seamless.
Proper moisturizing can improve your skin stay hydrated throughout the day. But make sure you will go for an oil-free moisturizer and apply it to your face at least 30mins before applying your makeup. Check each product properly you’re buying to make sure they’re provided to your specific skin type.
As you want to protect your skin from the sun in the summer, look for a moisturizer with built-in SPF for optimal protection.
Maintain a at least 10 to 15 mins gap before applying a makeup after moisturizing. You should wait until your moisturizer has absorbed into your skin before applying your makeup. Not only for the summer season rather please make sure apply your moisturizer straight after you get out of the shower.
If you don’t want to wait you can even use that time wisely. For example, you could get dressed during that time.
Though you can invest in waterproof products, but if you don’t prime your skin properly during summer, your single makeup won’t sit. So make sure before applying any makeup you prime your face as part of your summer makeup routine. Moreover, please mix your sunscreen with the primer and apply it on your face for a flawless finish. This will always help your summer makeup last long.
In the summertime, liquid foundations hold up extremely better under the heat than powder varieties. In addition to opting for a liquid foundation, watch for a smooth and light brand. This will help to minimize your sweat and keep your makeup sound longer. Furthermore, when you are planning to buy foundation, you can look for liquid foundations labeled as “long-lasting,” as these may stay on easier during the summer months. In the summertime instead of focus on full coverage, consider the light coverage foundation. Also, try to focus on covering the specific area like blemish and discoloration.
Moreover, In the summer time if you don’t want to use foundation you can leave it. You can leave the heavy coverage foundations and opt for a lightweight BB cream instead. A BB cream works beautifully to give an even skin tone and sheer coverage while also reducing the heavy feeling that comes with foundations. Oil-based outcomes make it more likely that makeup will slide out of place. If you have dryer skin types, make sure you moisturize very well before using an oil-free foundation. Opt for one that is long-wearing that will smooth your complexion all day.
When powder mixes with the oxygen in your sweat, the color of your make up might change. So use brush instead of sponge to do your make up. Apply your powder with a brush for a lighter finish.
Too much use of highlighter can cause creasing. Only apply a light layer of highlighter to areas where it’s needed, like to cover circles under your eyes.
Do you afraid of using lipstick in the summer? To keep lipstick from spreading, sealing your first coat of lipstick with a coat of powder, especially along the edges of the lips. Using powder before applying the lipstick will make that stay longer on your lips in this summer.
In the time of summer please avoid the using of lip gloss. Because it will concentrate sunlight, making your lips more likely to get burned. Tapping a bit of shimmery white eye shadow over the lips and then drying can give lips sheen without vanishing into a greasy mess.
Another secret for long-lasting lipstick is sandwiching in the color. First frame your lips with a lip liner, mapping out your cupids bow and the corners, which will give structure and grip for your lipstick. Then apply your lip color with a brush, building it in fine layers and finish with another coat of powder to set it.
Setting sprays are your favorite finishing touch especially for them that has an all-day event. This will not only help to refresh your make up but it also seals your makeup for a very natural look that lasts all day. Setting sprays are popular now that there’s an array of different formulations that mattify, hydrate, and even have illuminating pigments to promote a glow. Moreover, setting sprays are specially designed to stop makeup meltdown, so you hardly have to touch it up.
While it’s tempting to top-up your makeup throughout the day, go easy as too much powder can look cakey and leave a heavy finish. Instead of using blotting papers, try using Beauty Blender’s sponge to soak up unwanted shine throughout the day. This dry sponge soaks up oils without disturbing your makeup.
To maintain your makeup looking fresh all day long, keep the essential products in a bag to touch up throughout the day. Please make sure to keep your beauty blender with you to soak up unwanted oil , your lipstick to reapply lightly and your pressed lightweight powder to touch up by lightly tapping the product into the skin.
