Hi Fashom fan,
Summer is the perfect time to go outside to enjoy life, but nobody wants melting makeups, smeared eyeliner or super-sticky lipstick. Here are some tips for keeping makeup fresh and pretty, even in hot summer time.
Make sure the proper base
It’s time to change your sticky oily moisturizer for winter to oil-free one, and make sure you use the oil-free foundation to match. They can help you from being oily face even in sweating weather.
Primer is important
Adding primer between moisturizer and foundation is important. “They don’t feel at all like a heavy, additional layer, and they really help hold makeup in place,” says New York City-based makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff.
Pay attention to your eye makeup
Eye makeup melts easily, so you should give it extra attention. Avoid using eye cream on your lids for long-lasting shadow, and it’s better to use shadow powder instead of cream. Most importantly, use waterproof eyeliner for all-day wear.
Swap out thick lipsticks
Forget heavy thick lipsticks for the summer and try the season’s simplest trend: stains. These long-lasting formulas offer sheer coverage that can be built up, making them super versatile. You can try a traditional color like pink or peach, or something bold like tangerine and grape colors.
