Melting makeup is the biggest disaster you can face during summers. The heat also makes you feel like giving up on makeup until the sweltering heat subsides. But, if you love wearing it, don’t give up just yet!

Since it is just the onset of summer, it’s best to be prepared for the heat that’ll do everything in its capacity to bring your beauty game down. However, there are ways to ensure that your foundation, contouring and highlighter stay in place even during the hot and humid months. Confused? Don’t be! We’ll tell you exactly how to keep your makeup from melting in summers.

Blot and tone before wearing any makeup

The best method to prevent your makeup from melting is by using a toner on your face that is suitable for your skin type. Toners go before moisturiser, primer or sunscreen. Try the Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner that hydrates and refreshes your skin. Carefully dab away any excess moisture with a tissue if required.

Since primer sets the base for your makeup and holds the makeup in place, it is important to use one which is made for your skin type. Try the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer which not only helps makeup stay for longer but also, is lightweight and waterproof, just what you need in the summer.

Sure, foundations give a clean, flawless texture to your face, but wearing foundations in the summer months could dehydrate your skin and make it look cakey. At times, it could also mix with sweat and create a mess you don’t want to deal with. But, here’s a great alternative for you. Get your hands on the Lakmé Complexion Care Face CC Cream which acts as a mini skin stylist, provides UV protection, moisturises, conceals and evens skin tone.

Avoid powder, embrace blotting papers

Powder and heat together can make your face look extremely cakey. Powder clogs your pores and makes your face look dull. If your makeup is melting, use blotting papers as they will soak up sweat and oils without disturbing any of the makeup.
