As we all know , warm weather can bring on both good things and bad things. A new summer fling, concerts, festivals, but on the flip side it brings heat, lots of heat. Which causes us to sweat like crazy!
We all know that unless we are trying to recreate the FADE video in our best Teyana Taylor fashion, sweat is not always sexy and appealing especially in regards to makeup. Now, I know how much we all LIVE for our snatched eyebrows and beat faces, but there is nothing snatched or beat about running mascara and cracking foundation.
Here are a few products you need to maintain that beat face during the warmer months:
First and foremost, always make sure you are applying makeup to a nice and clean canvas. There is nothing worse than applying makeup to dirty and clogged skin. This can make sweating worse and ultimately breakout your skin. Now you not only have one but two issues. One great and easy way to maintain your skin is by using Simple Face Wipes. Wipe your face with one or town wipes and there you go! Avoid the headache and clean your skin before you apply anything.
Second, find products that have SPF in them. This is a great because it is not only good for your skin, but it is made for the sun and warmth. A few good foundations to use that have SPF are MAC Studio Waterweight Foundation SPF 30, L’Oréal True Match Super Blendable Makeup, and Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H to name a few. It is important to use products that not only look good but help to protect your skin from any harmful damage.
Third, use a good setting spray! Setting your makeup is the ultimate KEYS to success when wearing makeup during the summer. The All Nighter Setting Spray by Urban Decay is a favorite or if your just starting with makeup, the NYX Matte or Dewy setting spray is a great option! Setting Spray locks in that beat makeup look and prevents the makeup from moving or sweating completely off.
Fourthly, waterproof, waterproof, waterproof! Do not shy away from waterproof makeup. Especially when it comes to your eyes. Using a waterproof mascara and/or eyeliner can be great! Sometimes the idea of not being able to take off makeup at the end of the night can be intimidating, but honestly waterproof is the best way to go. Especially if we are talking about perspiration. You don’t want to be out looking cute at a BBQ and suddenly have a bad case of raccoon eyes! Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara along with a number of others is a great alternative solution to an easy fix problem.
Lastly, a little goes a long way. No need to cake on the makeup! I know that we all want to achieve the ultimate beat during the summer time and this is completely possible but sometimes it is okay to go with a simple light beat. Packing on the makeup in the warmer months isn’t necessarily the best idea, especially if you sweat from your head and face. An easy way to get a light yet simple beat is to use tinted moisturizers more than a using full coverage foundation. NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a good tinted moisturizer. Use a spot concealer on your dark spots and blend it in. Using strobe cream is another way to get a glow without using too much product. Glosses for the lips are also good as well and help to moisturize and give your lips the plump and bounce it needs for that summer kiss! Serving a fresh face both looks and feels wonderful and effortless. What Sweat?!
