Humid Summer Makeup

Recommended Posts

Guest *Clara

I just started wearing makeup late last year. So I'm wondering, will your makeup hold up long enough during the day when it's a hot, sweaty summer? confused.gif

Thorn,

whether or not you makeup lasts during hot summer days is all up to what kind of skin you have. If your skin is oiler, then makeup has the tendency to slide right off it if you have been sweating heavily. My skin is kind of on the dry side, but if I have a really long busy active day, it kind of melts a little by the end of it, but it still has excellent coverage and looks decent..

There are ways to counteract the oilyness:

blot oily areas with a tissue every 3-4 hours

use those blotting papers (which I think are all hype, and tissue works the same, and its chaper, so i use that)

Touch up with a really good quality translucent powder every few hours to keep oil and shine at bay

skip the foundation altogether, and find a really good sunless tanner that will help disquise red marks (or go to the tanning bed, which I don't reccommend, but I have done it in the past)

Hope you find something that works for you!
