There’s so many techniques that one can do to heat-proof their makeup, depending on their skin, but the following suggestions work well with every skin type.
First of all, cleanse your skin in the morning and apply your moisturiser (preferably one that includes SPF in). If your moisturiser does not include SPF, now is the time to add it.
The next thing to do is change up your routine. The classic primer/foundation/concealer/powder routine that works well during colder months will be far too heavy to wear during warmer months, so exchange your foundation for an oil-free BB cream or tinted moisturiser instead. My personal favourites are BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Gel Cream, and Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint.
The key to wearing a lightweight base is to invest in a long wearing, high pigment concealer. MAC’s Prep & Prime Highlighters work great under the eye as they are so lightweight and dry to a matte finish without looking heavy or cakey.
Swap powder for cream. Cream textures for eyes and cheeks allow your skin to breathe and won’t get streaky in hot weather. Bobbi Brown’s Lip & Cheek Tint stays put all day and comes in an array of colours to match every skin tone.
Even if you aren’t planning to be in water, waterproof mascaras and eyeliners will allow you to still give definition to your eye makeup without it melting all over the place.
Lastly, don’t forget to use makeup fixative sprays. These help fuse everything into the skin and keep everything looking hydrated and fresh, most importantly, keeps your makeup put for hours.
