Four tips to keep your makeup fresh in Summer
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!
