If you love summer but you don’t like the way it affects your appearance, you’re not alone! Many women struggle to maintain their glamorous looks once the warm weather arrives. The heat can quickly cause everything from your mascara to your eyeshadow to run if you aren’t prepared. Here are some tips for keeping your face together when you need to go outside.
1. Cut back on makeup
Allure magazine recommended keeping it simple with concealer or foundation to hide your flaws – nothing else. Don’t feel obligated to pile on the makeup when it’s humid outside. Doing so will make you feel uncomfortable, and it’ll show on the surface of your skin.
2. Use a matte eyeshadow
The Huffington Post suggested using a matte eyeshadow to ensure that color stays on your lids, even when it’s hotter than you can handle outside. Of course, don’t forget to use primer to prevent running and creases!
3. Waterproof it
If possible, look for waterproof mascara and other smudge-proof makeup to wear during the summer. These cosmetics are specifically designed for long wear, meaning you won’t have to concern yourself with whether your makeup is melting off of your face in the heat.
