With summer approaching very quickly I think it’s about time that we figure out how to keep our makeup looking fresh all day. Especially through high humidities and scorching temperatures that try to melt it off! I personally already have very oily skin so in combination with heat my makeup tends to move all over the place, unless I’m consistent in touching it up throughout the day.
Here is what I do throughout the day to keep my makeup looking fresh…
1.Exfoliate 1-2 times a week to keep a clean canvas for my makeup.
Exfoliating gets rid of dead and unnecessary skin on the surface of your face and creates a clean canvas for you to apply your makeup.
2. Wear waterproof makeup.
I like to wear waterproof mascara in warmer weather because it stays on much longer and doesn’t smudge. My favourite one is “Lights, Camera Splashes” from Tarte!
3. Apply a face primer.
Primer is meant to help keep your makeup on so what better time is there to use it than in the summer?! Make sure to choose one that’s right for your skin conditions or else the primer could end up being useless!
4. BB Cream over foundation.
Less is always more in heat and even though I don’t wear foundation I know that using something lighter like a BB Cream in the heat is better, both for your skin and longevity of your makeup.
5. Use Blotting Sheets or Pressed Mineral Powder.
I always keep either oil blotting sheets or pressed powder in my purse to touchup those oily spots (usually my T-zone and chin) throughout the day. Blotting sheets are better because they don’t result in a caked look like some powders do but they can also pull off any makeup you have on, so pick your poison! 😉
