 (collaborative post)

Whether you’ve booked a holiday or are planning a staycation this year, you’ll want to look your best while keeping sweat at bay. Now that the weather is getting warmer, this might mean having to make a couple of little changes to your makeup routine. With a few quick tricks and techniques, you can create a fresh summery look that will last for longer. You won’t have to worry about the high temperatures causing your makeup to run and you can keep your cool. Spend less time worrying about touching up and enjoy outdoor activities instead. Here are seven makeup secrets for a sweat-proof look this summer.

Use an oil-free moisturiser

An oil-free moisturiser will help minimise sweating during the heat than other types. It’s a perfect base for your summer makeup and you can opt for one that has SPF as well. There are plenty of oil-free moisturisers for different skin types, so you can find the one that’s right for you. Here is a list of the best oil-free moisturisers for every skin concern. By opting for one great moisturiser for you this summer you can save money on building a collection of unnecessary products and it’s better for the environment as well.

Sweat-proof sunscreen

During the summer if you’re spending a lot of time outdoors, you’ll need to keep topping up the sunscreen. Even if you don’t burn easily it’s important to do this as too much sun can be very damaging for any skin type. This can be a bit of a hassle, however, as sunscreen can make you sweat and mean you have to redo your makeup as well. One technique you can try is to fill an old compact case with sunscreen and use the pad to apply it. This way you’ll achieve a neater look without ruining your makeup.

Keep makeup minimal

It’s best to keep your makeup to a minimum if you want to avoid a sweaty face in the summer. Choose a couple of products that will help you unlock your confidence and avoid going overboard. This way you can keep cool and enjoy the outdoors for longer. By keeping your look simple, you won’t have to worry about constant touch-ups due to sweating.

Stick to sheer shades and textures

For a subtle yet flattering look, sheer and balmy textures work best for simple summer makeup. Sheer textures are easier to top up in the heat and you can go bolder with the colour if you want to. Sheer shades are more summery as you’re often going to be under bright natural light. For this reason it’s better to avoid shimmers and save these for the cooler evenings.

Stay out of the sun

If you want to protect your skin and avoid sweating, ultimately you need to spend less time in the sun. Those UV rays will cause skin damage and increase the signs of aging. If you have been exposed to too much sun over the years there are a few permanent solutions you can try such as a facelift or treatments for sun damage. Even just fifteen minutes in the sun can start to have an effect, so if you want to protect your skin for longer, it’s important to top up the sunscreen and get plenty of time in the shade.

Achieve long-lasting eye makeup

Long-lasting eye makeup is difficult to achieve on a sweaty summer’s day. Fortunately, there are a few tricks you can try. If you use eyeliner or brow liner, reinforce this with an extra layer of powder. This will keep it drier for longer and prevent it from running if you sweat. Use an eye primer rather than a moisturiser or eye cream as this will create a more solid matte surface. You can then apply powdered eyeshadow for a look that will last longer.

Switch to lip stains

Lip stains are great for the summer because they won’t smudge even if you sweat. You’ll get a strong colour for longer and you can even keep topping up your lip balm over it. You can choose from a range of colours and even go bolder or darker if you prefer. Here are some of the best lip stains this season. Look for makeup options that will minimise smudges and streaks for the summer. Even if the temperatures get balmy, you can then maintain your sweat-proof look for longer. This way you can spend less time topping up and have more fun enjoying your holiday.
