Hello everyone, welcome to my blog. 😊 Today I’ll wanna share a little tips for you to have the perfect skin during this summer time. This will be the season where you wanna use minimal makeup and show off your flwaless skin. You might have know all this tips but didn’t practice it. So, I’m here just to give you a small reminder. 😄 I basically stay in a place whereby it’s always hot and humid. Thus, these tips do help me out a little.
During summer time, our makeup will get melt or slip easily due to the summer heat. Before we step out of the house, our makeup is perfectly sitting on the face. However, only 5 minutes we are out from house, it started ‘crying’ on our face already. 😭😭😭 No worries, here are the tips for you!
Many people think that we only need to moisturize our face during the winter time. This is wrong!!! In fact, skin needs more hydration in the summer due to drying sun and air-conditioning. Toner alone is not enough to keep our skin hydrated and moisturized. Skipping the moisturizer is one of the main factor that cause our makeup slipping in the afternoon heat. One of the reasons why we don’t like to use moisturizer during the summer time is because of the oiliness and greasiness. So, we can switch to a lighter moisturizer that labeled oil-free or gel based moisturizer. Oil-free or gel based cream usually will be very light but do provides enough hydration to skin. E.g. Laneige Water Bank Gel Cream_EX, Kiehl’s Oil Free Collection, Neutropenia Hydro Boost Water Gel.
- Makeup Based
We girls will like to be beautiful all the time. Finding the right makeup based is very important. It’s not only important to search the right skin tone, it is also important for the makeup based to fit our skin condition and texture. Sumer and hot seasons will somehow make us sweat and produce oil. Thus, I’ll choose to use oil-free primer and foundation. E.g. Benefit The POREfessional: matte rescue gel, Benefit The POREfessional face primer, CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
- Cream based and waterproof
When sweat and powders mix, the result isn’t pretty. Sheer cream shadows tend to cake less in hot weather (plus, they glisten in the sun). Some cream based eye shadows contain silicone that locks the color in place. E.g. Laura Mercier Satinée Créme Eye Colour. Remember to prevent kohl eye pencil during summer time. It will definitely smudge and make you ugly. Try to use waterproof liner like Shiseido Makeup Automatic Fine Eyeliner. Waterproof mascara is a no-brainer in the summer. It can withstand the office, the gym, the pool, and the bar without smudging. You still can have a dramatic eyes during the hot seasons. E.g. Maybelline New York Define-A-Lash Lengthening Waterproof Mascara.
- Setting the makeup
This is the most important step, setting the makeup. During this seasons, you will definitely sweat. Thus, using a good setting powder is the key. Buy a good setting powder that can help you to seal the makeup and last long. E.g. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, Tarte Amazonian Clay Setting Powder.
So, that’s all the reminder and tips for you. Remember less is more. Overdoing your face will not be a good idea for this season. Simple and nice will always look good.
