Hi, my dear and beautiful women!
Today I wanted to write about a very interesting issue: about some tips to make your make up last longer in hot and humid summer climate. I love make up and for my job I always need to have my face in order as often I work on runways, I meet my clients, I have various appointments in the city centre. Sometimes in the middle of the day I can go to the gym, so I need to have my make up resistant to everything: humidity, hot temperatures, water, sweat etc.
So here I will give you just some general tips that can be useful for everyday life or if you have a special occasion!
Tips to make your make up last all day in summer
First of all to make our make up long-lasting we need to use waterproof products. Use hydrating creams which are lighter and can be a perfect make up base (Biotherm creams are a good option as they are like gel). All pencils for eyes and eyebrows must be waterproof (Aqua Lip or Aqua Brow by Make Up Forever, for example) as well as mascara; but for those who doesn’t like waterproof mascaras there are many that are long-lasting and that you can remove only with hot water (Clinique Lash Powder, Bareminerals Lash Domination, Mac Extended Play Lash).
It’s very important to use a high quality foundation with SPF filters that protects your skin from the sun and lasts all day (my favourite one is Teint Miracle by Lancome).
If you don’t use any primer your eyeshadow won’t last as the skin on eyelids is very greasy; so if you want a perfect eyeshadow it’s better you use a good primer before (I use Urban Decay), translucent powder that mattifies well, especially the T-zone: for me the best is Prep+Prime by Mac.
Last but not least, set your make up with a thermal water (Avene is my favourite) or a setting spray (Fix + by Mac or All Nighter by Urban Decay) to make your make up last longer: you can spray it all day on your face. A good idea is also to apply some powder on the T-zone.
Another important tip is not to touch your face with your hands all the time: remember that you have your make up on! We can melt our make up touching it all the time.
Hope these tips can be helpful to make your make up look flawless even in hot and humid summer days!
