Summer is a whole lot of fun and it's all about coral lipsticks, bikini tops, and chilled drinks. However, when you're drenched in sweat and your makeup starts melting off your face, it ain't pretty at all. You've to spend hours baking your base, slather on bucket loads of sunscreen and still, your make manages to slide and get ruined. Well, not anymore.
Get ready to party all summer long by using these products that will help your makeup stay on even in the scorching heat.
Before you start your makeup routine, make sure your prime your skin. This one step will ensure that your base sticks and stays put. Use one that is silicone-based and controls oil and apply it to the areas that you tend to get oily i.e. the T-zone and the chin and you'll see a huge difference in the longevity of your look. This one by MyGlamm has a yellow tint to it and will even help in making your skin look brighter and more radiant.
Waterproof foundation is going to be your new boo during the summer because of the humidity around you. This one by MAC lasts really long and won't budge even if you sweat all afternoon. Just apply it with a beauty sponge for an even finish and then set it in place with a translucent powder and you're good to go.
Okay, honestly forget about every other product cause this one will save the day during the summer months. Once you're done applying your foundation and concealer, use this loose powder to bake under your eyes, around your mouth nose, and your T-zone. Leave it on for about a minute and then dust the product off with a fluffy, powder brush. You'll get a shine-free base that will stay as it is for as long as you want.
You've probably forgotten what a compact is but it's superb for the summer when you don't want to go in with a cream base. People with super oily skin can use this product to give themselves slight coverage without the risk of looking shiny. It's got a powder finish and your base will look matte AF.
A setting spray is magical in the summer. Spritz it all over your face once you're done with your makeup and it will help keep it in place throughout the day. It even meshes the powders and the creams products together so that you get a more seamless look. Carry it with you in your bag and just spray it on whenever you do a quick touch-up.
These are a must-have purse item because they remove shine and oil without disrupting your makeup. These ones by NYX are reasonably priced and small enough to carry with you anywhere. So, whether it is a night about town or a brunch date with bae, these are super handy.
Remember guys, before you're getting into bed for a nightcap, take off your makeup. You don't want clogged pores, blackheads, and breakouts, do you? So, use a cleansing balm to remove all the makeup, and then go in with your fav cleanser to double cleanse. This will keep your skin squeaky clean and happy!
