Like each season summer has its share of boons and banes. Melting makeup, smeared eyeliner and oily skin are among the few summer struggles people face. Here are the easiest makeup tips for summer you should swear by to look good during the warm temperatures.
- Keep things light
If you want your makeup to look light and flawless instead of looking uneven and cakey, then vouch by the less is more mantra. The only thing that you should apply and reapply during the summer is sunscreen. Instead of putting on layers of foundation, go for a lightweight BB cream or a tinted moisturizer, which will give you a sheer and natural glow. Makeup moves around a lot when it’s hot, so the best way to avoid it is to wear less of it.
- Invest in a good primer
Application of a primer takes only a few seconds, and it ensures that your makeup lasts the whole day- even in the blazing heat that summer brings upon us. It light on the skin and keeps your makeup from smearing.
- Stop, shine and go for glow
To get your summer glow, add light-catching highlights. Then follow up with a touch of liquid highlighter on the tops of the cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose to create an illusion of a higher nose bridge. This will make your face look luminous. Remember, a slick T-zone instantly gives out the message that you’re hot- and not in an attractive way. Plus, blotting papers are a great rescue option.
