Summer is full of amazing things, but melting makeup, smeared mascara or super-sticky lipstick is not one of them. No matter where you are in the world, hot, humid, and sweaty summer days are no fun for anyone, especially when you want your makeup to look its best all day long. So we’re here to tell, do not give up with your makeup during the summer months! We’ve put together a few tips and tricks to help keep your makeup looking fresh and pretty, even when the weather is not on your side.
Always Apply Sunscreen
Applying sunscreen should always be part of your skincare routine, especially during the hot summer months. Besides for hydrating your skin, it also protects your skin from the sun. Once you have applied your moisturizer, be sure to properly apply sunscreen to your face and then you can continue with the rest of your makeup. Its also recommended, that when you are outdoors, reapplying sunscreen should happen every two hours- so opting for a spray might be best!
Invest In A Good Primer
Many people tend to either overlook or forget about a face primer, but that doesn’t mean you should too! Apply the primer before your foundation and the rest of your face makeup. Primers are definitely a good idea for the hot summer weather. It not only helps hold the makeup but can also help blur out imperfections-making your face look pretty close to perfect.
Choose a Waterproof Mascara
