When the sun shines and the heat is almost unbearable, the last thing you want is to feel even more uncomfortable. Your face is particularly susceptible to sun related problems like sunburns and itching caused by dirt and sweat. Skin fights to survive but it needs help. Even the best make-up artists can struggle to make us look fresh and glamorous. Melt proof make-up is essential.
If you don’t want your makeup to melt in your Cosmo this summer, take time to use a primer. Best primers – L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Color Correcting Primers. After you’ve applied your primer, you need foundation, the eternal problem for every woman. Some of us choose to use it in the summer, others don’t. Still, there are situations when good coverage for blemishes is needed. We have three options: foundation, concealer or BB Cream (Blemish Balm).
Cover Girl TruBlend Liquid Makeup is a line of oil-free liquid foundations, with a sheer silicone-based formula. It won’t slick in humidity, but it has a light coverage.
As for the concealer, go for a dense formula and use your ringer finger to dot the concealer on the dark circles.
If you’re not into foundation, choose a BB Cream that suits your skin. I have the same recommendation: go for a light one, not too dense, because it might block your pores. The advantage of using a BB Cream is that they provide moisturizing, SPF protection and sheer coverage.
A matte lip pencil. Make-up artists recommend NARS for a fantastic result: full lips and no more melting on your face. You can also use it on your cheek bones, as a blush, since it comes in different matte colors.
Waterproof mascara or Sweat proof mascara is a must this season. Maybelline New York saves the day and gives us the amazing Define-A-Lash Lengthening Waterproof Mascara. You don’t want your face to be all dark circles, right? Another great product for this season is Sephora’s Disposable Mascara Wands set. The wands come in a variety of shapes, to help sculpt the lashes and prevent them from clumping.
An essential summer product, skincare and treatment is thermal water. La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water is rich in antioxidants, fresh and perfect for working and travelling days. It tones and refreshes the skin and it is the last step in cleansing and the first one in the makeup process.
For a final touch, use a cream or a gel blush. Powder and sweat don’t really get along, so you want to avoid getting messy. stila has a great product called Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream.
Every woman should try this essential cosmetic routine. It’s easy and in the same time healthy for your skin.
