How to Make your Makeup Last in the Heat
Did you ever feel like you were melting on one of those really hot summer days? I know I have. Generally when it gets really hot and humid, my make up shows the effects of the heat.
I “glisten” more and my mascara and eyeliner start to smudge. It’s definitely not an attractive, put together look.
Don’t worry, it’s possible to learn how to make your makeup last in the heat so you don’t look like a hot mess at the end of the day. These simple beauty tips can make all the difference when the temperatures rise.
The fewer products you use in your makeup routine, the fewer that can react to the heat. In the summer, aim for a lighter makeup look.
Try a Makeup Setting Spray. These sprays help set your makeup in place which will help them last longer in the heat.
Choose a Waterproof Mascara and Eyeliner. These products have been created to last longer when wet and are a great choice when you may perspire.
NYC New York Color HD Automatic Eyeliner offers style that stays all day, and with a built-in smudger and auto-sharpener. It is available in 5 different shades.
Available from stores like Walmart and CVS.
Use a primer
Apply a Primer Under your Foundation. A primer prepares your face for the foundation. It will help your foundation last longer even in the heat.
Try Blotting Papers. If you’re perspiring and need a way to remove the perspiration without removing your makeup, try gently blotting your face with blogging papers.
Lip gloss will last longer in the heat than lipstick. They are lighter and it’s to reapply on the go if necessary.
Long wear makeup
Use a Long Wear Foundation . Not all foundations are created equal. Choose a foundation that is meant for longer wear time.
