Makeup Tips to Summer Up for This Season!

Summer is full of wonderful things — but melting makeup, smeared eyeliner, and super-sticky lipstick are not among them.  Spilling out tips for keeping makeup looking fresh and pretty — even when the weather is working against you!

1. Start with moisturizer

The way you care for your skin is just as important as the makeup you apply to it. Using an oil-free moisturizer will help balance your skin, preventing an increase in oil, yet still providing enough hydration to prevent your skin from drying out.

2. Layer on sunscreen and UV protection

Besides hydrating your skin, you also want to make sure it’s properly protected from the sun — and that means wearing sunscreen every single day, even under your makeup. (Applying makeup over sunburned skin is not fun.)

Recommend to re-apply sunscreen every two hours, but that can be hard when you’re out and about — especially when you don’t want to use your hands. A DIY trick to have your own sunscreen:

  • Use dish soap to clean an old liquid compact foundation and cushion. Let dry.
  • Soak the cushion with your favorite face sunscreen inside the compact.
  • To re-apply, dip a sponge applicator into the cushion and dab on your face.

3. Invest in a powerhouse makeup primer

You won’t regret the few seconds it takes to apply a primer, which goes on after moisturizer but before face makeup. Primers are definitely the way to go in summer and they don’t feel like having a heavy, additional layer, and they really help hold makeup in place.”

4. Glow up with some bronzer

“Bronzer makes everyone looks better with a little warmth added to their skin.o keep the results looking fresh and natural, applying bronzer just to the high points of your face, where the sun naturally hits you: forehead, cheekbones, chin, and nose.

Powder bronzers are the easiest to apply. Look for one with varying shades — they’ll blend together for the most authentic-looking results. You can also sweep a little bronzer onto your neck and earlobes to blend, especially if you have short hair or are wearing a pony­tail.

5. Wear less makeup

If you want to prevent your makeup from creasing and caking, say it with us: Less is more. “If you can, just use a tinted moisturizer and a concealer where you need it. Makeup likes to move around when it’s hot, so the best way to avoid that is to wear less of it.

6. Skip the shimmer in the summer

Everyone loves a pretty dewy glow but there’s a big difference between a healthy radiance and an over-the-top shine. Avoid cream foundations or anything too luminous, as the humidity will make you extra shiny and sweaty-looking if you have too much sparkle on your skin.

7. Go for sheer shades

To lighten up your look, switch to sheer versions of your go-to lip and eye colors. Use a lipliner pre-application if you need extra definition, but go for a nude shade to keep that carefree feeling, or try “invisible” lipliner, which deposits a clear, waxy film to stop the color from bleeding. Bonus: Because sheer colors are subtler, you almost can’t go overboard.

8. Give your eyeshadow staying power

For longer-lasting shadow, avoid using eye cream on your lids (it can break down makeup), recommended applying an eye primer instead! It will minimize creasing and create a base for the shadow to cling to so it lasts longer. For the ultimate in all-day wearability, layer a powder over a cream. Doubling up works for the liner, too. Apply your regular pencil or cream liner, then use a small angled brush to press dark shadow over the liner to set it for longer wear.

9. Ditch the powder blush

Blush adds balance and healthiness to any look, but if you’re still using the same powdery formula, your flush might cake up faster than it takes to get to work in the morning. Use a gel or blush stain, then blend a touch of cream blush on top of it.

Pro tip: Want to increase its wear? Dust a light, invisible setting powder over top. Just be sure not to get too heavy-handed; you want to lock your look, not mattify it.

10. Play with fun, vibrant colors

Just as you’re probably more likely to wear a vivid top or carry a bright bag this season, now’s the perfect time to play up the colors in your makeup palette. Besides looking summery, livelier colors brighten the face and bring a youthful glow to the skin. If you tend to stick with neutrals, experiment with just one area of your face.

11. Replace shininess with dewiness

A slick T-zone instantly telegraphs the message “I’m hot” — and we don’t mean sexy. To eliminate unsightly shine in seconds, nothing beats blotting papers “They’re cheap and easy — you just press and go, If you need to perk up your makeup too, blot first, then follow up with a pressed powder with a hint of luminescence. You want to eliminate shine, but you still want to look a little glow-y, especially in summer.

12. Swap heavy lipsticks for lip stains

Toss your heavy matte lipsticks for the summer and try the season’s simplest trend: lip stains. These long-lasting formulas offer sheer coverage that can be built up, making them super versatile. Stains are lovely because you can always add a lip balm to add moisture without worrying about the color traveling,

13. Try waterproof versions of your favorite products

Love to swim? Don’t worry about getting raccoon eyes — there are lots of amazing long-wear beauty products out there these days. Investing in a good mascara, or if you’re blonde, get your eyelashes tinted.

14. Store some mini cosmetics in your purse

Never look oily in a photo again by staying prepared with purse-size products that are perfect for traveling! Carrying blotting papers is a great way to whisk away the sweat and oil without piling on more product. Plus, you never know when the yourlip color will need a touch-up.

15. Always finish with a setting spray

The final step in getting your makeup to last all day and night is to spritz on a setting spray to seal in your look and you be all ready for this Summer!
