For many people, summertime means fun in the sun! Summer is the season for outdoor concerts, backyard barbecues, trips to the beach, and laid back pool parties. While all these outdoor activities are good for your tan, the extreme heat can turn your makeup into a runny, melted mess. But enjoying the summer sun doesn't have to mean leaving your makeup at home. Try these quick tips to keep your face looking flawless through even the most sweltering summer temperatures.
- Swap your foundation for tinted moisturizer. Foundation can be a little heavy for the summer heat, so swapping it for a tinted moisturizer with SPF ensures that you will be able to keep your flawless complexion all summer long. Tinted moisturizer is less likely to clog your pores or melt in the sun, and gives your skin a beautiful translucent glow.
- Use a primer. Makeup primer, which goes on after your tinted moisturizer but before the rest of your makeup, keeps your makeup from fading on those long summer days. Some primers also include SPF to help protect your skin against aging.
- Use bright, translucent colors. The summer can bring out the fun in you so why not let it bring out the fun in your makeup! Translucent hues add color and glow to your skin without looking thick and overdone under the bright light of the sun. Bright colors add a special pop in the summer, when wardrobes are also usually brighter.
- Zap shine. Carry blotting papers with you whenever you plan to spend long periods of time outside. Using blotting paper is an easy way to banish pore clogging oil and keep your face looking pristine.
So model your makeup after the hottest season of the year: light and fun! Your makeup should make your feel beautiful, not burdened. Try these tips to keep your makeup feeling fresh all summer long.
