With the hot Summer weather almost upon us, I thought it would be good to talk about Summer makeup. If you're like most women, the biggest problem you have is for your makeup to last in the hot humid weather right? Whether you're at a pool party or just having a girls day out - having your makeup stay in place is so so important.
As you can imagine there are a TON of "waterproof" and "long-lasting" makeup items on the market. Some better than others. The idea though ladies is to look for products that have either "waterproof" and/or "long-lasting" in the product description and you'll be half way there :)
Here are my Sweatproof and Waterproof Summer Makeup tips...
1.) Exfoliate - Skin preperation is so important, especially in the Summer. Exfoliated skin allows your skin to give your that healthy glow, remove damaged skin cells (prevents congestion), and allows your makeup to last longer. My fav is Clinique Exfoliating Scrub.
4.) Prime - This is the most commonly skipped step. Like Seriously. This will help keep you foundation stay put. Look for primers with mattifing technology. My fav is Hourglass Veil Primer. It is mineral-based and water-resistant with SPF 15 that reduces shine.
8.) Setting Spray - This is like such a must ladies. Seriously. Setting your makeup will not only keep you matte but keep your makeup on that much longer. I love Model In a Bottle, Skindinavia, and Motives Cosmetics.
And that's it! Do this steps ladies and I promise you that you'll be looking just as beautiful at 6PM as you did at 7AM.
