The summer season is associated with a lot of problems. And the majority of problems are either associated with skin or hair. I guess we are forgetting something here, yep! You guessed that right, we are talking about makeup. Keeping the makeup intact and preventing it from melting is one of the biggest problems most girls struggle with every summer. But it doesn’t have to be like this, you can change the entire scenario by making some tweaks to your makeup routine just like the way you do it with your skincare and hair care routine.
Continuing to use your hydrating and nourishing winter makeup products in summer is one of the main reasons why your makeup starts melting in the heat. Considering your skin’s needs change with the season, you should switch your products accordingly based on your skin type. In case you are struggling to find the right makeup products for summer, you can use this blog post as your guide to know which products you need to invest in.
Primer is one of the only things that helps keep your makeup in place and prevent it from melting in the heat. Hence, it should be one of the first things you should be getting your hands on. Primer creates a layer between your skin and makeup, thereby keeping them separated and preventing your makeup from melting or looking a greasy-mess. You can either wear it alone or under your makeup to create a flawless look.
When it comes to picking a foundation for your makeup kit in summer, you need to make sure that you are investing in the right one. Foundations come in different formulas; you should choose the formula based on your skin type and also the season. Since it tends to get really hot and sweaty in summer, foundations in a lightweight formula make an ideal choice for this season. Full-coverage and heavy foundations, on the other hand, can be slightly difficult to work with in summer. Additionally, a lightweight foundation looks more natural and skin-like.
No makeup kit is complete without adding a couple of lipsticks to it, irrespective of the season. Much like any other makeup product, lipsticks come in different formulas and textures. While lipsticks with hydrating formulas are suitable for winters, when it comes to summer, you should get your hands on lipsticks in a matte formula. Matte lipsticks can easily stand the test of summer and face masks. Hence, there can be no better option for this season than matte lipsticks. Get your hands on some bold, bubbly, and neutral shades to get through summer looking cute and hot.
Maybe it’s just us or some of you may also agree with us on this, our makeup looks tend to feel incomplete without using eyeliner. This is one of the only products that can completely transform your look in an instant, but the only issue with this product in summer is it tends to get transferred on the lids because of the heat, especially if you have oily lids. But that issue can be resolved or taken care of by investing in waterproof or smudge-free eyeliner that will stay in place throughout the day.
Mascara is an indispensable part of our makeup kits, no makeup look tends to feel complete without applying two-three coats of this product on the lashes. But summers make it slightly impossible to wear mascara as it starts to smudge in the heat. An easy solution to this problem is to invest in waterproof or smudge-free mascara that will survive all the heat and water life throws your way.
