Summer Makeup: Beat the Heat

June 29, 2018

The heat of summer brings us all a ton of fun, from beach and pool parties to relaxing vacation time. However, summer heat presents a challenge when trying to look your best, as sweat and sports make it difficult to keep makeup in place. Here are some tips from the pros to help your makeup look great all summer long.

Lighter is better when it comes to summer makeup. Instead of a thick foundation, choose a tinted moisturizer that covers lightly while keeping your skin soft. Select one that also offers sun protection, and you’ll have triple effects in a single step! Look for an SPF of at least 15.

Light powder touch-ups are okay, but avoid powders if possible, since they don’t mix well with sweat. Try a light bronzer instead to add a touch of sun-kissed color and a warm glow.

Heavy lipsticks are great for fall and winter, but a light, tinted lip gloss works better for summer. Besides adding a hint of color and shine, lip gloss helps keep your lips moisturized in the summer heat.

To bring out your eyes, use a waterproof, smudge-proof mascara. Powders tend to cake in the heat, so opt for cream eye shadows and liners.

Fortunately, there are a ton of new makeup products that help you beat the heat. Waterproof is no longer just for mascara – concealers, blushes, and foundations are all available in sweat-resistant, smudge-proof formulas. Ask your esthetician about new products that will help make you look great this summer.

Finally, semi-permanent makeup solutions can help you look your best this summer while saving you time every morning. Lash and brow tinting helps showcase your features while reducing or eliminating the need for extra mascara and eye or brow liners.
