Summer is almost here, and with the hot days ahead, you’ll need to revamp your makeup to make it last the whole day. When it comes to summer beauty, sunscreen is the only thing that you should thickly layer on, since it’s essential to protect your skin from harsh UV rays. As for makeup, a light touch, sweat and water-resistant products, and the right application techniques can go a long way to make you look good from morning ’til night. Ready to look amazing this summer? Try these makeup tips to make you look fresh and glowing all throughout the hot summer months.
Replace your foundation with tinted moisturizer
To look your best for a day at the beach, fill your makeup bag with hot weather beauty staples such as a mattifying sunscreen, lip balm, and a hydrating facial mist. Next, take out any product that may melt on your face in 100-degree heat, such as liquid foundation. Instead of a liquid or cream base, choose a tinted moisturizer, which can give you minimal coverage and a sheer glow. Apply a thin layer on top of your sunscreen, or choose a tinted moisturizer with an SPF of 30 or higher. You can also make a DIY tinted moisturizer by mixing full coverage foundation with moisturizer or facial sunscreen for a sheer wash of color, plus a drop of liquid highlighter for added glow.
Use multi-use makeup products
Using one product for the eyes, cheeks and lips can help to lighten up your makeup bag. Moreover, it can make you look effortlessly put together. Find multi-use makeup sticks, creams or tints that can be used as an eyeshadow, blush, and lip color. For the most flattering look, try peach, chocolate brown, purple, rosy pink, or ruby red multi-use products.
Go for waterproof versions of your favorite products
If you love using mascara and eyeliner, you’ll need to find waterproof versions of these products so you can avoid the dreaded raccoon-eye look. Forget about cream or pencil eyeliners – choose waterproof pen eyeliners in cocoa, purple, navy, or dark green. Apart from giving your eyes some definition, the formula won’t run, so you don’t have to reapply even if you’re spending the day at the beach or pool. For a fresh look, line just the upper lashline, and leave your lower lashline and waterline bare. Waterproof mascara is also a must, but if it still smudges, opt for colorless or clear mascara to define lashes.
