Use an oil-control face wash.
Use a mild face wash to remove all excess oil. This will give your skin an even tone and a fresh appearance. Pat your skin dry with a tissue or towel.
Many skin and makeup professionals love this trick. Start by slathering a freshly iced cube on your face, avoiding the delicate area under your eyes. Massage the ice gently without applying too much pressure, as the coldness could irritate your skin’s capillaries. Remember to use a light touch for 2 seconds, and then remove the ice cube. After that, use a clean towel to dry your skin, then apply your favorite makeup. This trick will cool your skin, close up your large pores, and prevent your makeup from melting outside!
Apply A Toner
Use cotton to dab the excellent toner on your face and neck. It will revitalize your skin.
Use a sunscreen that is based on gel or light lotion and not one that is heavy or cakey.
Never Forget Your Primer
Wearing a primer beneath your makeup can provide multiple benefits, whether for a subtle look during the day or a dramatic look at night. Face and eye primers can help prevent makeup from melting. It is not harmful to add another layer of skin. The primer creates a great base to make your makeup last longer by locking and preventing it from melting. Prime your T-zone when you sweat excessively or have oily skin. The primer should be applied in a good way on the T-zone. Also, use it on your nose and chin. This will make your concealer and foundation last longer. The primer also helps the BB/CC cream glide smoothly. You would only need a tiny amount of product. When choosing a primer for summer, you should choose a formula that doesn’t make your skin look too luminous or dewy. Select a primer that gives you a matte, natural finish.
Keep it Light
Adding layers and layers of makeup when the weather is hot is not a good idea. Choose makeup that is heat-friendly. Concealer and foundation- Use a stick concealer first, followed by a lightweight gel-based foundation. The lighter formulas of face products, such as tinted moisturizers and BB and CC creams, which don’t melt quickly when heated, are a great alternative to foundations. Keep it light and sheer! Choose something soft and not heavy, creamy, or thick. Use a tinted moisturizer that has SPF and top it with compact powder. Apply a blush to your face. Apply a coat of mascara to your eyes, then follow up with tinted lip gloss or a hydrating lip balm. These products will protect your skin and give you a natural look.
Stock up on Oil Blotting Sheets
You can’t stop sweat from bursting out of your skin. It’s entirely normal for most people. It’s OK, as long as you prepare for it. Most people make the mistake of applying compact powder on top to control oil and shine. This is a significant makeup mistake! Powdering over sweat will cause your makeup to crease, blotch and leave the skin cakey. Choose more brilliant alternatives like oil-absorbing blotting sheets in your arsenal. These sheets are fragile, light, and compact but they work wonders! Blot the forehead, T zone, and area under your eyes to instantly absorb shine.
The finishing spray is used by celebrities who do makeup on the red carpet. This is applied after the makeup, up to the concealer and foundation step, before applying the lips, bronzer or blush, and shadow. It helps to keep the makeup in place and prevent it from being wiped off by sweat. The foundation is the first to be removed when you sweat or work, revealing all the spots and blemishes you tried to hide. How cool is that!!
The powder is the best option for blushes and eyeshadows. Powder makeup controls oil and sweat more effectively than liquid formulas. They will run down your face and start greasiness in no time.
Wet your eyeshadow brush first with makeup setting spray or just plain water. After removing the excess water, use a tissue to remove any remaining moisture. Then, select your eyeshadows. This helps your eyeshadow adhere to the lids and gives you a nice, glazed finish.
