Four tips to keep your makeup fresh in Summer

It is officially Summer here in Australia. The weather will start warming up soon and it will be hot. The one thing that is really annoying is when makeup doesn't stay on, because of the heat.

There are some really great products to look out for, to help keep your makeup on in summer.

Here are my tips on how to keep your makeup fresh in Summer:

1. Wear a primer - a primer applied after you day moisturiser, will help to even out your skintone and helps your foundation 'stay put' -  great for hot weather.

2. Choose a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturiser - the lighter the makeup the better you will feel in the heat. If you find your makeup is too light, set your foundation with some loose powder foundation to give more coverage.

3. Use a makeup setting spray - once you have applied all your makeup up, spray some makeup setting spray it is designed to set your makeup, leaves you looking fresh and your makeup should stay on all day.

4. Use blotting paper - they are affordable and you can get great travel sized ones, that you just press on your shiny areas of your face and the powder coated blotting papers will absorb it.

Of course everyone is different, so what may work for some may not work for others, but they are worth a try. Also to be considered is your skin type and the makeup you are using. Try what works best for you and don't forget to wear SPF sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun - most important!

What works best for you in Summer to keep your makeup on? Do you have some great products that you like to use in Summer?

@A Dose of Dannie - you are gorgeous Dannie! Email me anytime if you want recommendations on certain types of products.

It's always trial and error with any makeup or skincare until you get the right one for you!

Yes, I did think of you when I was wandering through a local pharmacy and was feeling overwhelmed by all the products. Next time I'll take a list of ideas.
I had noticed a product by Neat Feet that claimed to be an antiperspirant gel for faces. Perhaps another way to help keep make up on and reduce perspiration?

@Smilie girl - Awww that is so nice of you to think of me! Yes definitely having a list is good.

I have never heard of Neat Feet but I have just checked it out online and yes it sounds similar to a primer, you wear it underneath your makeup and it claims to help your makeup stay on longer. If you try it let me know how you go, sounds great!
