Summer Makeup Tricks
During the summer, most of us have trouble with keeping our makeup looking fresh in the heat. Here are some summer makeup tricks that will help keep your makeup looking fresh and even. Always make sure that you are using a primer. This helps your foundation go on smoothly and not look caked on. It also helps your makeup last longer. Not only should you use a face primer but an eye primer should be applied to your eyes before you put on your eyeshadow. This helps your eyeshadow stay on longer and last throughout the day without having to be touched up on.
During the summer, having your face makeup stay fresh throughout the day is one of the hardest things to accomplish. When dealing with your foundation, you can apply your foundation in a criss-cross stroke motion with your brush. This allows your foundation to look less blotchy when you start to perspire. If foundation is too much for you during the summer, try wearing a tinted moisturizer. The tinted moisturizer kills three birds with one stone. It provides moisture to your skin, allows for a smooth looking complexion and also has SPF in it.
To ensure that your lipstick stays on during the summer, you can brush a bit of powder on your lips after applying your lipstick. This helps keep your lipstick in place and prevents it from feathering around one’s lips.
The best advice for summer in regards to makeup is less is more.
