You’ve cleared out the long overcoats, furry jackets and boots from your closet to make space for your summer outfits. However, there’s one more corner that needs a summer revamp - your makeup drawer.
Your skin needs season-apt products to maintain its health and glow, that’s exactly why you need to swap your winter beauty products for summer-appropriate ones as the weather heats up. If you’re clueless about what to replace and what to stock up on, fret not, we’ve got you covered.
Below are some beauty swaps you need to make for your best face this summer.
- Switch to BB cream
- A powder blush
- Get waterproof eye makeup
- Stock up on bright lip colours
- Lock the makeup with a setting powder
Switch to BB cream
You don’t want to spend the hot summer day layering makeup products which will probably end up melting anyways, do you? That’s when a BB cream comes in handy. This miracle product works as a moisturiser, colour-corrector and foundation, all-in-one. It will give you an even skin tone and cover up your blemishes minus the layers. Pretty neat, right?
A powder blush
Since you won’t have the natural flush from cold winter winds anymore, get your hands on a blush to fake those rosy cheeks. But wait! Don’t use a cream or liquid blush. Rather, go for a powder blush that doesn’t melt off with sweat, but mattifies your look and stays put all day.
Get waterproof eye makeup
When it comes to eye makeup, waterproof formula is your BFF. You don’t want your kohl sliding down your face before lunchtime or have your liner transfer to the crease of your lids, do you? Also, always start your eye makeup with an eye primer to make it stay put all day long.
Stock up on bright lip colours
While winter is all about deep reds and darker hues, summer calls for bright and peppy lip colours like fuschia, peach and mauve. Stock up on these hues if you haven’t already, for a summer-ready pout. Also, don’t forget to apply a lip balm infused before wearing your lip colour to keep your lips from chapping.
Lock the makeup with a setting powder
Last, but definitely not the least, snub your setting spray for a setting powder to lock your makeup and get a matte base that stays put all through the day. Since you will be dealing with excess oil and sweat on your face, a buff of setting powder or on-the-go touch-ups with a compact will help you quickly fix the shiny zones and look flawless all day.
