Wondering why your base makeup keeps running down in the summers? While you can blame it on the sweltering heat, you’re probably also guilty of an effective summer base makeup routine. Want to know how you can get your makeup to last longer with subtle base makeup this season? The stepwise guide below should help you…
Prep your skin
 

Prep your skin

Hydration is crucial to both your makeup and skin care regime in the summers. You’re constantly losing water in your body through sweat and your skin is only getting all the more dehydrated. So make sure you prep your skin first by applying the Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser that locks in moisture for as much as 12 hours. Gently apply this moisturiser to your skin every single day.

Rely on a primer
 

Rely on a primer

Summer makeup is known to slip away and run down, especially if you have oily skin that needs a good amount of support for your BB cream or foundation to stay on. This is why your summer base makeup is incomplete without primer. We suggest going with the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer. Along with ensuring that the skin doesn’t look greasy, this one also covers your pores and preps your skin for the next stage of makeup.

Go for light coverage
 

Go for light coverage

Just about any foundation or base makeup product won’t cut it for you in the summer season. Summers are when your skin hates anything heavy and instead yearns for something super hydrating and light. No better way to embrace this idea than applying the Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Mousse Foundation. Not only is this feathery light on the skin but it’s also just the subtle kinda base makeup you need for this weather.

Conceal certain areas

This step is strictly for those who are looking for a little more coverage. Just to ensure your summer base makeup covers your acne scars, dark circles and dark spots, go for a lightweight concealer for your skin. We suggest going with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick with SPF 20. The concealer comes in fair and medium shades and gives you coverage along with protection from the sun—crucial for the summers.

Don’t forget compact
 

Don’t forget compact

A compact will not only give you a flawless finish but it will also help control the oil in your skin—a common phenomenon during the summers. So make sure you use the Lakmé 9to5 Flawless Matte Complexion on your skin, especially your T-zone for an even yet matte finish.
