We all know that heat can do terrible things to both our hair and makeup! A hot day can leave is with wrecked makeup, including smeared mascara and melted eyeliner. Follow our summer makeup tips to help you look your best, regardless of the weather.
 
Use a primer
A primer gives your face a smooth, even tone so your makeup looks better and stays on longer. In the summer, primer can help keep your foundation in place. We recommend using a primer after you moisturise and before applying foundation.
 
Try a heavily pigmented concealer
Using a heavily pigmented concealer in a heavy, cream formula will hide most blemishes and make your skin tone appear more even. A liquid concealer won't offer as much coverage as a cream, and your imperfections will soon show through your foundation.
 
Avoid heavy foundation
In hot and humid weather, a heavy foundation can clot and make your skin look tired. So, instead, we recommend using a powder foundation or if you want a liquid, look for one made with silicone. This stops makeup from melting by putting a barrier between your skin and the high humidity.
 
Use waterproof mascara
Waterproof mascara is a lifesaver during the summer, staying on after a day of swimming at the beach or a hard gym work out session.
 
Get luscious lips
Try using lip gloss instead of lipstick as lipstick tends to smudge and smear in the heat. In contrast, lip gloss will look great for a long time.
 
Blot sweat
Use oil-absorbing blotting cloths to soak up moisture from your face rather than adding more makeup to cover up excess oil and sweat.
 
Keep it natural
The greatest summer tip we can give you is to simply use less makeup. A natural look is best if you are spending the day outside, try using only the amount of colour you need to enhance your best features.
 
Whether you are having a day or work or pleasure, these summer makeup tips will help you look your best!
