It’s hard to keep your makeup looking flawless on a hot summer day. These products are sure to help with keeping your makeup sweat-proof all summer long.
Summer is great but as soon as it he’s hot your makeup game can start to look week. Don’t let those high temperatures dull your summer glow and instead check out some of these products to help your makeup last all day long.
1. Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
If you’re looking for something to make your makeup last through a long night out or a hot summer day than this is the setting spray for you. This spray keeps your makeup on your face and lasts a long time. Just be sure to put on your mascara after you spray so it doesn’t run.
2. Blotting Papers
Some of us are bound to have oily areas on our skin especially if it’s hot outside. If you catch yourself getting shinier just grab a blotting paper and pat away the excess oil. It’s an easy fix if your face is starting to get sweaty.
Primer is the perfect base for making your makeup really stick on your face. First find a primer that works for your skin whether is oily, dry, or somewhere in between. After you find your perfect primer make sure when you’re applying your primer in a patting motion not a rubbing motion. You really want it to sit on your skin properly so your foundation can really stick to it.
4. Waterproof Mascara
Be careful with your mascara choices in the summer. When it’s hot and your starting to sweat you don’t want to end up with black streaks down your face due to your mascara running. Switch things up by getting a waterproof mascara that will stay on all day without smearing. If you are having trouble getting your waterproof mascara off at the end of the day try micellar water or some baby oil diluted with water. The oil will break down the mascara making it much easier to remove.
5. Wax Eyebrow Pencil
If you want to lock your eyebrows in make sure to use a wax eyebrow pencil. The wax will make sure your eyebrows don’t move through out the day even if you’re sweating. If you want to lock eyebrow hairs in place be sure to use some eyebrow gel to keep them from going all over the place.
While you may have to take a few extra steps to have sweat proof makeup it is possible. Just read labels and do your research about products that will work for you and your skin. Also be sure to check and make sure your products have sunscreen especially if you plan on being outside with your sweat-proof look.
