With the combination of heat and sun, women may often sweat off their foundation in the summer months. But, according to Allure magazine, there are a few simple ways that ladies can keep their makeup from melting.
To help your cosmetics last, use a primer before applying concealer and foundation. “The formula creates a barrier between your skin and your makeup and prolongs your overall look,” makeup artist James Boehmer told the news source.
When selecting a concealer, avoid liquid formulas and opt for a densely pigmented cream, as the thicker product is less likely to disappear in warm weather.
Though tinted moisturizers seem to be the popular choice during warm weather, some women always desire the full coverage that foundation offers. During summer, opt for a lightweight silicone-based formula, as the magazine reports that “silicone acts as a film between your skin and the humidity, preventing foundation from seeping into your pores or dribbling down your chin.”
For sheer coverage, the news source suggests applying foundation with a dampened makeup sponge, using short strokes. Give the makeup a minute to set before using additional cosmetics.
