During the summer, it becomes increasingly difficult to have a light, fresh make-up look that stays on all day. Sometimes I scrap having any make-up on, purely because of the scorching heat. However, if you would still like to have a make-up routine – here are a few tips and tricks for looking fabulous in the hotter weather!
Moisturise, cleanse and tone
As always, it’s vital that you look after your skin when wearing make-up, especially in the summer. When it is hot, I’m prone to developing oily skin and acne so I make sure that I moisturise before putting any product on. I’m currently using Nivea’s Soft Lotion, alongside Nivea’s Visage 2 in 1 Cleanser/Toner. Both products have really helped my skin stay healthy and fresh!
Go for a natural look
Sometimes the best way to have a natural make-up look, is to go quite natural! I’m not saying don’t wear any make-up all, but as someone who has freckles I really love a natural look that emphasises my freckles and makes them more prominent in my make-up look. I’d advise anyone who wants a look that brings out their freckles, to use a lighter foundation, perhaps a BB cream like the BB Cream Golden Glow, or a tinted moisturiser.
Instead of using quite heavy, dark toned blusher, foundation or concealer, I’d recommend products that have ‘’sheer’’ in their name as they are more likely to have a lighter and thinner consistency. This means that although they do provide coverage, it won’t melt off during the day and will make your skin feel quite light. I’d recommend the bareMinerals Original Foundation, which includes SPF15.
Swap foundation for concealer
Although you still want full coverage during the summer, swapping your foundation for concealer will do wonders for a summer make-up look. Lighter based concealers will still cover blemishes, spots and any unwanted marks without being too hot and heavy on your skin. Any light concealer can be used for this kind of look.
