8 Pro Beauty Tips To Ace Your Summer Makeup Game
Are you worried about your makeup melting in the hot summer sun? That makes all of us. The scorching heat can ruin a perfectly good makeup look the moment you step foot out the door, and nobody wants that. The oily, greasy feeling on your face at the end of the day only makes it worse. Thankfully, you don’t need to break a sweat anymore, ’cause the Hauterfly team just put together some of our own trusty makeup hacks that will help you look and feel fresh all day long.
Just a few tweaks in the products you use and a handy trick or two are what you need to get through this summer looking your flawless best.
1. Switch to matte products
Mattifying skincare products help keep the greasiness under control. Switch to a mattifying primer during the hot summer months to keep your makeup in place for longer.
2. Use lightweight foundation
You may be used to your current full-coverage foundation, but during summer that often won’t hold up. A lightweiht foundation is what you need to survive this season. It will hide most of your blemishes while letting your skin breathe. Plus, your makeup won’t land up looking cakey either.
3. Look for formula with SPF
No one wants to get tanned (unless you’re on a vacation in Hawaii, in which case you can throw caution to the wind). Apart from your regular sunscreen, consider using makeup products with SPF 35 at least. You can’t have too much protection you know.
4. Try the no makeup makeup look
Going bare skin or applying only a BB cream on those super hot days works wonders for the skin! Plus, if you’ve been following Bollywood celebrities on Instagram, you’ll know the no makeup makeup look is all the rage. A moisturiser with SPF and a pretty lip stain, and you’re good to go!
5. Go for glossy nude lipsticks
Swap your dark winter shades for glossy nude lipsticks if you’re looking for a luscious summer pout! It’s a great way to look put-together without trying too hard.
6. Use a pop of colour on your waterline
Ditch the usual black winged liner look for a little colour. After all, what’s summer without the bright hues, right? Use a pop of blue, pink or even yellow on the inner corner of your eyes or along your waterline, and boom! You have a whole new look.
7. Get that glow!
To get that perfect sun-kissed look, a highlighter is all you need. Use a powder highlighter instead of a cream or liquid formula to avoid looking too shiny. A dewy look is what you want. Highlight the areas on your cheekbones and brow bones for a luminous glow.
8. Set your make up
Touch-ups? Ain’t nobody got time for that. After you finish applying your makeup, use a setting spray to avoid the hassle of redoing your makeup a gazillion times through the day. A matte setting spray is what you need to keep your makeup in place all day.
And that’s a wrap on our makeup hacks for summer. Try them out and let us know which ones worked for you.
