As we head into August and set off on our summer jaunts, we all need our makeup to work that little bit harder and go the extra distance. I will be sharing tips o tips and tricks on how to heatproof your makeup for long-lasting, flawless and glowing summer skin. Here are my top tips for heat-proofing your beauty regime…
Lighten the load
The key to having natural-looking skin that survives under the sun is to not overload the skin with products.
Use cream or liquid instead of powder
Swap your powder products in favour of creams, liquids and gels that blend more seamlessly into the skin.
Tools of the trade
When it comes to adding the final touches to your base (highlighters and blush), I prefer to use my fingers for cream or liquid textures. Not only does the warmth of your fingers let the product sink into the skin for a flawless finish, but it gives more control to where you place the product without moving your makeup underneath – use a gentle touch to push the product into the skin.
The real test starts when you leave your house, and whether you’re having a day out by the beach or strolling through the city, refresh your makeup on-the-go with purse-friendly products that removes excess oil from the face or a refreshing face mist u can use through out the day.
