Make-up tips for summer

March 27th, 2010

Less is more so keep it nude, ensure that your makeup doesn’t get washed away with the humidity.

  1. Consider switching to an oil-free formula during the summer months or dilute your everyday foundation with an oil-free moisturizer. This lighter coverage will fare better when temperatures heat up.
  2. Wear a lipstick that will last, alternately use a lip liner under your lipstick. Keep lips protected and moisturized. Use a lip balm and moisturiser that has an SPF factor and consider switching to a moisture-rich lipstick. If possible go for lip-gloss.
  3. Apply your SPF moisturiser to a clean face and allow 10 minutes for it to absorb before applying your foundation.
  4. To make your eye shadow last through the day, wear a nude colour base, then apply some powder and finally apply the eye shadow. If it’s really hot and you don’t want to go to the effort of applying a full make-up, a touch of mascara and a little eye liner will open up the eye and bring your face to life.
  5. Moisturise your face and then apply a blusher. For Indian skin tones, peaches, old rose and brown tones look the best.
  6. Battle summer blemishes with a superior night time treatment so there’s less reason to cover up come morning.
  7. Resist the temptation to reapply unless you feel it absolutely necessary. Reapply loose powder only. Pressed powder has the tendency to cake and clump when hit with moisture.
  8. Invest in labelled sun glasses to protect your eyes from sun rays.
