As much as we love the summers, beach sun can be a bit too harsh for our skin. Especially if you love wearing makeup, melting down and ending up with an oily skin is the biggest of our worries. Every girl wishes for makeup that will last all day long in the humid weather without breaking down.
Here are 5 fool proof ways to help your foundation last all day long, even in the humidity:
Investing in a good primer is essential, it not only minimizes the pores it also helps at controlling the oil and makes the foundation last longer. Apply a primer on your face especially in the problematic areas. If you have oily skin, apply another layer of a good primer on your T-Zone, it will help control oil.
Choose the right foundation according to your skin type. If you want your foundation to last all day long, then go for an oil free formula. Due to the humidity, chances of your skin becoming oily are pretty high. You should stay away from luminous foundations; mineral foundation is your best bet if you want something that wouldn’t harm your skin.
Set your foundation using a translucent powder. Press the powder into your skin so your foundation stays in place. This will also help in reducing the shine and controlling oil.
4. Setting Spray
Use a setting spray to lock everything in, once you have applied the spray your makeup won’t budge.
It is natural that your skin will become oily, keep blotting sheets and a powder compact with you. Whenever you see shine or oil simply pat it using a powder or blotting sheet. This will instantly freshen up your makeup making it look flawless.
Another trick for a flawless summer foundation would be a good night care routine. Drink a lot of water and keep your skin hydrated.
