5 Tips For Summer-Proof Make Up

Summer. The word brings so many good feelings to you – tank tops, flip flops, sundresses, crop tops, et al. But when it comes to pulling off some make up, the same word ignites nightmarish thoughts – bleeding liners, dehydrated lips, patchy foundation. *Shudders* So unless you’re planning to move to the Tundra region, stick to these quick make up tips this summer.

 

  1. Clay Masks

Summer means a lot of sweat and more oil produced by your skin. To reduce this, indulge in a good clay mask therapy once in a week. Find some great clay masks here.clay mask

 

  1. Waterproof

Well. Duh-uh, if your skin is going to step up the sweat and oil production, the best option is to turn to waterproof. Water-resistant mascaras also do the job just fine; it’s advisable to do a quick shower test though.waterproof

 

  1. Pop!

Another way to tackle summer is not by beating the heat but taking it in your stride. Embrace the sunny days with vibrant colors. Here’s how you can work some pop into your make-up.7-ways-to-Rock-that-COLOR-EYELINER-without-looking-GAUDY-cover

 

  1. Or Not.

On the other hand, if you’re not one for the fuchsias, blues and all that brightness on yourself, going au naturale too is a great way to tackle the season. Highlight the high points of your face with a bit of bronzer for some added glow in the Sun. Here are some products for going (almost) nude.nude makeup

 

  1. Sheer Relief

Ditch the creamy and heavy formulas and opt for lighter or sheer versions of the same. Not only do these feel lighter, but they also look great. For example, pick a nude or “invisible” lip-liner; and stick to lip stain or lip tint instead of a gloss or lipstick.sheer

 

Now go beat the heat, pretties!
