Are you counting the days until summer finally arrives? Do you dream of colorful cocktails, sandy beaches and ocean waves? If your answer is yes, then read on. Unfortunately, summer also brings high temperatures, leaving you looking for solutions on how to beat the heat and unfortunate the sweating. However, I am here to provide you the tips, destined to help you deal with such problems and enjoy a healthy glow in the end.
#1 Cushion foundation with lightweight formula
If you are looking for a product that you can easily carry around, this is the ideal one to try. Cushion Foundation is a product that guarantees a natural look, not to mention the sponge applicator that allows you to correct any imperfections on the run. You should look for products that have a lightweight formula, as they’re especially recommended for summertime usage. Keep in mind that cushion foundations don’t usually have integrated SPF, so you need to purchase an additional product for such purposes. Do not underestimate the importance of sunscreen, as going outside with no protection can lead to the premature aging of the skin and even skin cancer.
#2 Powder for enhanced makeup resistance
Most summers are hot and humid, no matter where you are. Once you have applied foundation, you require additional product to keep everything together. By applying a top-quality powder, you will ensure your foundation does not run and that your face is not shining excessively. The most important area in which powder should be applied is the T-zone, as this is where the highest amount of sweat and sebum gather, leading to an unpleasant shine
#3 Luminous blush to highlight your cheekbones
Using the correct luminous blush will allow you to highlight your cheekbones without having to use to a multitude of products. Try not go for a bronzed appearance, you might look as if you were trying too hard. The luminous blush, instead, can guarantee a shimmering skin, one that everyone will be envious of. By going with such options, you will look elegant and refined, as opposed to the glittery or over-bronzed look, which will bring you closer to your teenage years.
#4 Setting spray for a fresh-looking makeup
By using a setting spray, you can make the difference between fresh-looking makeup and something that looks anything but pleasant. Setting sprays can complete your makeup, ensuring that it stays on for a prolonged period of time (regardless of the temperatures outside). The one thing you have to make sure is that you apply the spray before your mascara, otherwise you won’t be pleased with your mascara running out and you having to begin everything from zero. Also, keep in mind that there are special formulas out there, so find one that works for your skin.
#5 More eyeliner, less eyeshadow
Because summer temperatures can get quite hot, it is recommended to step away from wearing too much eyeshadow (this can easily run out). Instead, opt for a liquid eyeliner and preferably one of high quality. Choose one that has a soft brush applicator, as this will help you obtain the perfect lines. A gel-based formula is also recommended, as it will ensure that the liner stays on for a prolonged period of time. You can also go with an eye pencil, enjoying the diversity of colors suggested for summer wear.
These are only a couple of tips on how you can beat summer sweat and enjoy a healthy glow. As you have seen, many of these are logical and quite easy to follow. Always remember to drink plenty of fluids, making sure you stay hydrated and reduce the excessive sweating. Also, if you know you have oily skin, use products especially recommended for such skin types (these will allow for better sebum and sweat control).
