How to Beat the Heat and Look Flawless
The coming summer months can mean fun in the sun but they can also mean makeup that seems to melt off your face the second that you step into the sweltering heat and humidity.
That’s why in order to look totally fabulous and absolutely flawless in the months ahead, it’s time to give your makeup routine a makeover and think sheer.
Here’s how to keep you makeup from turning into a sweaty disaster with our failsafe tips…
#1 – Exfoliate
Okay, exfoliating isn’t really a makeup tip but let’s get real – no matter what the season, gorgeous makeup always starts with a skincare routine that preps your skin, getting it ready to look and feel its best.
Since the summer heat and sun can quickly damage your skin, leaving it dull and your pores clogged, it’s vital to exfoliate regularly to uncover fresh new skin cells. Our Miracles & More 3 in 1 Exfoliator is perfect for normal to oily skin to deeply cleanse while exfoliating and peeling and tightening enlarged pores.
#2 – Go Tinted
Summer is not a time for thick layers that can end up looking sweaty and cakey as the day goes on and the heat rises.
Instead, we recommend using a tinted moisturizer like our Age Defense BB Cream. Simply apply a light layer for sheer, gorgeous coverage or for an even lighter, airier feel, mix with our Hydrating Mango Face Cream before sweeping it across your face with your favorite makeup brush to make it last longer and keep it from looking oily.
#3 – Grab a Tan the Safe Way
Although we would all like to look sun-kissed this summer, those UV rays punish the skin, accelerating aging and leaving behind lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.
So instead of baking in the sun in order to look bronzed, grab a faux glow with our Miracles & More Sheer Glo Lotion, in Bronze or Glo Pink, which you can wear alone or on top of your foundation.
#4 – Resist the Water
The sweaty days of summer can leave you with raccoon eyes and serious smudges. That’s why especially in the dead of summer, going with a water resistant version of your eye makeup faves is a must.
Our Lash Ware Mascara is not only resistant to water to keep it in place, it delivers gorgeous length for your lashes, without fibers, plastics, or sealers.
And our Waterproof Longwear Eyeliner is highly pigmented and smudge-proof to give you the makeup perfection you’re looking for even in the summer heat.
#5 – Think Cream
In the summer, a creamy blush formula is your secret weapon to creating a natural looking flush that won’t melt away so that you won’t look like a weather-worn mess.
Our Cream Cheeks Blush makes it easy to look put together even when you’re walking around in that sticky, stuffy humidity and 100 degree plus heat.
