Summertime and makeup don’t usually mix well. When the temperature rises, I feel like my makeup starts to melt off.
I’ve been wearing less makeup during the day because I just can’t maintain it with the Los Angeles summer heat. Honestly, the weather here recently makes me feel like I’m in Miami. But I know a few tricks to help my makeup stay beat on my face.
So here are some amazing tips I want to share with you guys.
I’ve learned that using an airflash spray
can be a great way to keep the foundation from moving all over your face. I’m a big fan of the Dior Airflash foundation and have been using it for years.
The last thing I want to do in the summer heat is wear falsies. I really love the CoverGirl new Super Sizer Big Curl Mascara that is waterproof. First off, this mascara makes your lashes look like you’ve got falsies on. Secondly, it’s waterproof, so you won’t smear your mascara all over your eyes if you start sweating. This mascara will run all day and night.
I love wearing matte lips during summer because the lipstick doesn’t get all over the place. I’m a big fan of Victoria’s Secret’s Velvet Matte satin lip stain. It’s long-lasting all throughout a hot summer day. And this lip stain won’t dry your lips unlike others will.
I recently discovered Prep+Prime Fix+Matte by MAC cosmetics. This product is a lightweight, mattifying spray that refreshes skin while instantly controlling shine and oil. Trust me, ladies: I have oily skin that’s intensified in summer heat. This spray controls everything and doesnt let my makeup move.
These are some of the items I’ve been using all summer long. But less is more when it comes to makeup in the summer. The less you wear, the better it’ll be for your skin. What are some products you use to help you beat the heat?
