Light makeup

Say no to cakey, heavy makeup this season. It’s going to be a tough call for makeup lovers but there’s absolutely no place for heavy makeup in this irritable weather. Use BB creams, translucent powders or just keep it sheer. Besides, using too much makeup in this weather will only increase the chances of acne and zits. And we bet you love your skin a lot more than you do cosmetics to let it face this tough ordeal, right?

Use ice cubes

Rubbing an ice cube for about 10 minutes before applying makeup is going to work magically for you. Apart from the general benefits of ice cubes on the face (they close pores and your skin will love them in this weather) they’re also perfect pre-makeup. How? Because ice cools your face and allows your skin to hold on to the makeup longer. Low on effort, high on pay off!
