Summer Makeup Do's and Don'ts

Sun-kissed skin and carefree vibes – summer's a dream. But let's be real, traditional makeup can turn into a melty nightmare under scorching heat. Cakey foundation and smudged mascara, such hassle and discomfort.

Traditional makeup routines often fall short in terms of delivery and quality of a long lasting glow, under the summer sun. But what if you could achieve a radiant, long-lasting look without sacrificing comfort or confidence?

From choosing the perfect foundation to creating budge-proof eye looks, we'll cover everything you need to create a summer makeup routine that truly works. 

Here’s all the things you need to know in order to master the summer makeup dos and don’ts.

The Do’s

  • Prep Your Face. Begin your summer makeup routine by prepping your skin with a lightweight, mattifying primer. This step not only smooths out the skin’s texture but also helps your makeup last longer in the heat.
  • Lightweight Base. Opt for lightweight formulas like tinted moisturizers or BB creams instead of heavy foundations. These will even out your skin tone without clogging pores or looking cakey in the heat.
  • Sun Protection.  Summer sun can be harsh, but sun protection doesn't have to be complicated. Many makeup products now come with SPF built right in. Look for foundations, powders, and even lip products with SPF to give your skin a shield against harmful UV rays.
  • Set with Setting Spray. Hot weather can make makeup melt but a quick spritz with a mattifying formula after applying your makeup helps everything stay put throughout the day.
  • Blotting Papers. Summer heat can make your skin oilier than usual. These handy sheets are your new summer BFFs.  With a few gentle presses, they'll absorb excess oil and sweat, instantly refreshing your face and maintaining your makeup's flawless finish.  
  • Lip Care. Your lips need sun protection too!  Skip the drying matte lipsticks and opt for a lip balm with SPF. 

The Don’ts

  • Heavy Powders. Avoid heavy powder foundations that can cake and crease in the heat. Opt for lightweight formulas that provide coverage without weighing down your skin, allowing for a more natural and breathable finish.
  • Dark Shades. Steer clear of dark, heavy makeup shades that can look harsh in the bright summer sunlight. Instead, embrace lighter and brighter hues that complement the season’s vibrant energy.

Whether you're hitting the beach, exploring a new city, or indulging in al fresco dining, embrace the weather and let your radiant summer look steal the spotlight wherever you go! These simple summer makeup tips go a long way.  Seize the day and don’t worry about your makeup running down all over.
