We all know summer heat causes a lot of skin and hair problems. However, one thing most of us ignore is what summer does to our makeup. Getting that perfectly dewy makeup look without making your skin look oily and greasy becomes a tough task during summer. We’ve all been victims of makeup faux pas in summer, however this time you can avoid that by following these simple tricks below.
- Forgetting primer
- Using the wrong foundation texture
- Applying too much foundation
- Not going waterproof
- Overdoing the bronzer
No matter how good a foundation without a good base it will melt away in summer. Applying primer is one of the most essential steps in applying makeup. We trust the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer due to its lightweight texture and waterproof formula.
Using the wrong foundation texture
Using the same foundation formula throughout the year won’t work. Also, whether you like it or not your skin tans a bit during summer and using the same winter shade will make you look pale and patchy. Instead opt for lightweight textures or CC creams such as the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale CC Cream the goodness of aloe vera will soothe your skin and make it look dewy.
Applying too much foundation
If you can’t do without foundation keep it light and dewy. A heavy layer of foundation will make skin very oily and cakey. Look for a formula that is lightweight and gives even coverage.
Not going waterproof
Using the same old mascara that will smudge and run with the first drop of sweat? You need to go waterproof makeup shopping right away! And while you’re at it go for the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara.
Overdoing the bronzer
Most bronzers contain a lot of shimmer and applying too much of it will only highlight the imperfections. Instead of giving you the dewy look you’re after it will make your dry patches look drier. Therefore only apply it around the eyes or near the cheekbones, avoid an all-over bronzing powder.
