Summertime may very well be our favorite time of the year - the gorgeous sunshine, pool parties and BBQ’s, and that favorite swimsuit we’ve been dying to wear all year long! Unfortunately with the rising temperatures and humidity comes the oh so annoying ‘melting face’. And just like that, all the time and effort you’ve put into creating that perfect masterpiece is sabotaged by the summer heat.
Don’t sweat it, Beauty Croppers! Here are 5 super easy tips to prevent your makeup from sliding all over the place this summer.
1. Time To Prime
Smoothing on a primer is one crucial step we shouldn’t throw out the window, ever! An oil controlling, mattifying primer gives your foundation extra staying power and helps to combat shiny skin by keeping excess oil, which can cause slipping, under control.
2. Lighten Up
Using a thick, full coverage foundation during the summer heat is a no-no. Instead, swap it for one that has a lighter coverage and is also oil-free. If you can avoid foundation altogether, do it! A tinted moisturizer or BB cream all work just as great to give you a gorgeous, natural glow while evening out your skin tone.
3. Waterproof Those Lashes
Because who likes panda eyes? Opt for a waterproof, clump-free formula like our Fabulous Flocking Lashes Mascara for the most defined and lustrous lashes. Infused with argan and jojoba oil, your lashes will also stay hydrated!
Now that you have your makeup on, a translucent setting powder will be your best friend to set and lock everything in place, and prevent it from moving and melting. Lightly dust the product all over the entire face with a large powder brush and you’re good to go!
As soon as a little shine begins to peek through, we are quick to grab the powder which can leave us looking cakey at the end of the day when overdone. Blotting papers come in super handy when you need to eliminate sweat and remove any unwanted shine without disturbing your makeup. Just be sure to dab using press and lift motions instead of dragging it over your face.
