You can also use it on earlobe and neck if you have short hairs or planning to go with the high ponytail. Powder bronzers are most natural to put on.
We are telling you to go with less makeup, not a no-makeup look. Apply only a beauty product that you really think is necessary. Makeup tends to move around in summers; the best thing to stop them is applying it in a less amount. Go for a tinted moisturizer and BB Cream and you are done. These two will give you a complete makeup look.
Shimmers – No / Sheer Shades – Yes
Say no to shimmers this summer. Why? Because they will make you look extra sweaty and shiny due to humidity. So avoid creamy foundations and luminous products. Bright colors are suitable for other seasons, but for summer makeup look sheer shades are everything. Nude shades in lip color are subtler, so you won’t go overboard with the lip color.
Eyeshadow, Gel blush, Lip Stain
To make your eyeshadow stay little longer apply primer and powder before eyeshadow. And this doubling up layer will also help eyeliner to stay longer. Apply your regular or cream eyeliner then by using small angled brush apply a darker shade on it to make it last longer. Instead of using a powder blush, use gel blush. And avoid using heavy matte lipsticks, instead use lip stains. Lip glow balm will give you a lovely lip shade as well as it will protect your lips too.
Whichever makeup product you are using make sure they are waterproof. Who doesn’t love wearing mascara? But the scary thing is they get smudged after coming in contact with water. Therefore, buy waterproof mascara. They will not let you look like a panda after swimming. And while purchasing waterproof products, look for the ‘water-resistant’ label, avoid using a product having silicone as a primary ingredient it will clog up your pores and remove your waterproof makeup with Oil-free Makeup Remover.
Setting Spray and Blotting Paper
Before heading out, make sure to secure your makeup with setting spray or powder. It helps in giving a matte look to oily skin type and in the days of humidity. The setting spray lasts more than a powder and is a better alternative. You can carry a setting powder with you in a handbag so that you can reapply it when makeup starts to melt off without adding any makeup to your skin. The other thing to keep in your bag is Blotting paper. Blotting paper removes dust and sweat from your skin without piling on any more product to your skin.
