While we may have a few of our reasons to feel happy about the arrival of the summer season, some of the girls cannot even stand the idea of this season. Reason? All the skin and makeup woes it brings along. And it’s no-brainer that sweat is the root cause of most problems and there’s not much we can do about it. Just imagine, all that time you spent on doing your makeup in the morning only to be ruined because of sweat just after a few hours, the feeling can be off-putting. Sweat can be your makeup’s biggest enemy and if you think that you don’t stand a chance to save it from getting melted under the summer heat, then you need to think twice because we just figured out some ways that will stop your makeup from melting off.
Listed below are a few tips that will make your makeup sweat-proof this summer.
Follow skincare routine
You should always follow your skincare routine in the right order, irrespective of the season. For your makeup to settle onto your skin nicely, it’s important to create a nice base which can’t be achieved without applying your skincare products. From cleansing and toning to moisturizing and priming, follow all the steps in the correct order to ensure that your makeup doesn’t budge from its place all day long. Make sure that you are using all the products that are suitable for your skin type and always apply a layer of sunscreen on your face before you put on any makeup. Try using products that are lightweight and oil-free so that they get absorbed into the skin perfectly.
Apply BB or CC cream instead of foundation
Summers can be sweaty and applying anything too heavy on your face will only worsen the situation. Therefore, instead of applying your regular full coverage foundation, try using BB or CC cream as they are incredibly lightweight and feels light on the skin. They not only make your skin look even but also provide sheer coverage which makes your face look more radiant and natural. You can conceal the imperfections such as dark spots, blemishes using concealer, and then blend the product with bb or cc cream.
Dust some powder
This is one of the most important steps to follow. After you’re done with your base, take your favorite translucent powder and dust it all over your face using a powder brush. Powder products are known to work incredibly well when it comes to absorbing excess oil from skin, therefore, always seal in your foundation using a translucent powder and you will be good to go for hours to come.
Always carry blotting papers
If you are someone who has extremely oily skin then carrying blotting papers with you is the best thing to do. These blotting sheets also come in super handy when you feel like your makeup is coming off due to all that sweat. Just lightly dab the sheet on that sweaty area and it will instantly absorb all the oil or sweat and make your face look fresh all over again.
Apply setting spray as a final step
Applying setting spray on your finished makeup look is one of the most crucial things to do in this entire process. You cannot afford to miss out on this step as it not only locks all your makeup in place but also acts as a barrier against all the sweat and oil that your face is susceptible to produce. Therefore, always spritz some setting spray on your finished makeup look especially if you have to go out in the sun.
