As we move into summer you’re slowly changing your wardrobe, skincare routine and the foods you eat. Then why resort to the same old makeup products and techniques you used in winter? Your skin produces more oil and sweat, making summer a difficult time to ace that perfect makeup look. Thankfully, here are a few do’s and don’ts that will help prevent a makeup meltdown this summer.
Apply a primer
Prepping your skin for makeup is an essential but often overlooked step. Primers provide a smooth surface for your foundation to spread on and adhere to, so your makeup lasts longer. The Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer gives your skin the perfect canvas to create your favourite makeup looks even in summer.
Go for a lighter base
As the humidity levels rise, reduce the amount of foundation you use on your face. Rely on BB and CC creams to get the right amount of coverage along with hydration and sun protection. The Lakmé Complexion Care Face CC Cream is an all in one skin cream that reveals an instant natural glow with the right touch of makeup.
Use makeup with SPF protection
Other than applying a layer of sunscreen, use makeup that offer SPF protection to prevent the harmful effects of the sun. Touch ups are essential during summer to keep your makeup in place and reduce the shine on your face. We trust the Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 Pa+++ Compact, it forms a protective layer on the skin and gives an ultra-matte finish.
Skip the setting spray
Never skip a setting spray, especially in summer when the sun isn’t kind on your skin and makeup. Spraying a setting spray keeps the look in place and prevents meltdown too.
Forget blotting sheets
Keep your sunscreen close and your blotting sheets closer this summer because you’re going to need them and how! It a quick and easy way to lift away oil from the face and get a matte look within minutes.
Ignore your lips
UV rays are equally harsh on your lips as they are on your skin. So if you’ve always ignored the delicate skin on your lips, now is the time to show them some TLC. You can apply a layer a thin layer of sunscreen or simply swipe the Lakme Lip Love Chapstick, this tinted lip balm has SPF 15 to protect your lips from the harmful rays of the sun.
