Game Changing Summer Makeup Tips
Summer makeup is weightless, bright, and looks effortless. It stays put when you walk into the smelting heat and allows your natural glow to shine through.
With summer upon us it is time to adapt our makeup routines to warmer weather. Follow these tips for makeup that can take the heat.
The better your skin looks naturally, the better the summer glow. Maintain an even skin texture by exfoliating regularly. You can read our blog on exfoliating for your skin type to learn more about what will work best for you.
Keeping your skin hydrated is important year round for maintaining a strong moisture barrier. Hydrated skin is healthy skin and will help your makeup application be even and glowy. One of the best topicals for the job is Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix. Apply it before your base to prime and hydrate.
For the rest of your look, use makeup products that are water-resistant, or even become enhanced by a little moisture.
Always wear an SPF every day no matter what. Dermatologists recommend a broad-spectrum physical SPF of 30 or higher. Apply it after your primer and before your foundation. If you really want to stay safe, wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses when laying out by the pool or at the beach.
To even your skin tone without the cakiness of most foundations and concealers, use Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation or Acne Control Foundation. These water and sweat-resistant foundations are lightweight and buildable for light to full coverage. They will exceed your expectations with skincare benefits, SPF 30, and aloe vera to combat bacteria and soothe irritated skin. Swim up to 90 minutes without reapplying your foundation and enjoy summer fully covered.
Cheek and lip stains are ideal for hot weather as they won't slip and slide off your skin. A good cheek stain does a fabulous job of blending in and may look even more natural as your skin sweats and glistens.
A beautiful smokey eye and black eyeliner can turn into dripping chaos if they aren't prepared for heat. Use light and bright colored eyeshadows and have fun with shimmery glitters. Dark shadows can become a mess, especially if you have the habit of touching your face when you sweat. Cream shadows also work great in the summertime. Apply with light feathery strokes and have fun with it!
HOT TIP: Blot papers can come in handy in the scorching heat, especially for oily skin types. Gently pat your skin and the blot papers will take away the excessive moisture without ruining your makeup.
We hope these tips help you with your makeup game this summer!
