  • Primer is Must for Makeup – Take Time to Prime

The key to long-lasting foundation and colour is the most commonly skipped step: PRIMER. Seriously—the stuff works. All you need is a pea-size dot of a lightweight, oil-free formula; apply it to moisturized skin before your concealer and foundation. Use a primer as a base for your makeup. Primer doesn’t only function to create a smooth base, but also to increase makeup’s longevity on your face. Oil-free and non-silicone textured primers are the best choice if you want to wear it in a humid weather.

Don’t wear thick foundation to hide imperfections on your skin—you can use concealer to hide it. The key is hiding flaws should be your concealer’s job, not foundation. Additional tip BB cream works Best. Our picks are:

  • Avoid Over-powdering

Lot of people opt for mineral powder makeup during the summer.Powder is often the culprit behind cakey faces, plus – powder and sweat simply don’t go well together! Instead of going for the fully-powdered face, only powder areas where you really need extra oil-control, such as the T-Zone area. Translucent powders are great for setting makeup with excellent oil control

NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder

  • Go Waterproof

It is not funny when your makeups, especially on eyes area (eyebrow, eyeliner and mascara) smudge or melt when you’re sweating. The answer is to opt for everything that is waterproof and smudge-proof. Try our picks for Eyeliners and Mascara.

Lakme Eyeconic Lash Curling Mascara Black

  • Eyeshadows

Choose Creamy Shadows – Sheer cream shadows tend to cake less in hot weather (plus, they glisten in the sun). Having cream shadows as a base colour will make your powder shadows adhere better, and just in case the powder shadows fade, you will still have the cream shadows underneath as a “back up plan”! For better adherence, opt for the combination of cream-based and powder-based makeup products. First, apply your favourite cream-based product, and then finish it with a thin layer of powder-based product. Remember, less is more—don’t apply the products too thick.

  • Tint Your Lips

Lip gloss just looks right come summer: It’s fun. It’s easy… But it can also get runny and sticky in the sun. A tinted lip balm with a high wax content won’t turn to mush in your bag or on your mouth. You may try our picks.

  • Last but not the least Keep blotting paper in hand

Always carry blotting papers in your beauty bag. When you apply the paper, just pat it lightly on the oily area and never rub it, as it will make your makeup fade.
