Tips to Achieve a Perfect Summer Makeup Look


Summer is finally here and now is the perfect time to go out and have lots of fun activities under the sun. However, along with the warm sunny days comes heat and humidity which are the two enemies of makeup. Hot and humid weather can cause makeup to melt and feel sticky on the skin. Add up the sweat and oil produced by the skin and your makeup look is surely ruined.

Since the season has already changed, it is also the perfect time to change your makeup routine as well to suit the weather. Here are some simple tips to help you achieve a perfect summer makeup look and feel fresh and glowing all day long.

Never Skip the Primer

Since your pores will be producing more sweat and sebum when the weather is warm, the makeup slips off your skin a lot easily during the summer months. You can make your makeup stay longer into your skin by applying a good primer.

After cleansing your face, apply a mattifying primer into your face especially in the oil-prone areas such as the T-zone. It fills in the pores making your complexion look more even and reduces shine as well. The primer holds all the other makeup products a lot better, making it last longer than without a primer. Shop The Kind Collective’s face makeup collection for the perfect primer that suits your skin.

Avoid Foundation

Less is always better when it comes to summer makeup look. Applying foundation would make your makeup too heavy and would end up feeling sticky especially when you’re exposed to the summer heat. Instead of applying foundation as your base makeup, go for just a concealer to even out your skin tone and brighten your look. Be sure to choose the perfect skin that suits your skin tone for a natural look.

Liven Up Your Makeup with Colour

Summer makeup look is never complete without a flush of colour. Give your pout a perfect touch of natural colour by using a lip tint. Also, don’t forget to give your cheeks some life by applying a blush on. Be sure to apply just the right amount so it doesn’t look overdone.

Use Waterproof Eye Makeup

Since you are more prone to sweating during summer, it is best to use waterproof makeup products especially for the eyes. With a waterproof eyeliner and mascara, you can be sure that your eye makeup would stay and won’t melt or wipe off even if the temperatures are soaring high.

Set with Powder

After doing your entire makeup look, be sure to seal it with powder to make it last longer. You could also carry with you a compact powder if you’re out for a long day. You can just do touch-ups anytime needed and keep your base makeup in place all day long.

Achieving a perfect summer look is not that complicated at all. With these simple tips, you can surely maintain your summer makeup look all day long.
