Hot Days Are Coming: How To Make Your Makeup Sweat and Heat Proof

Summer is almost here, and as exciting as that is, we have to brace ourselves for extreme weather conditions. But who says that you can’t wear a full face of glam even when the temperatures are up there? With all the upcoming weddings, festivals, and nights out, no one wants to compromise on wearing makeup. But we also don’t want our foundation melting off our faces or mascara running down our cheeks. So if you want to make your makeup sweat and heatproof, here are some steps you should follow.

Skincare is Key

The first step in making your makeup sweat and heat-resistant is to properly prep your skin. To begin, properly cleanse your skin to get rid of any excess oil, dirt, or sweat. Then, apply a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer formulated for oily or mixed skin. This is going to help to keep your skin hydrated while not adding extra oil. After that, apply a primer to your face. This will help to keep your foundation in place by creating a smooth, even base. Look for a primer made for your specific skin type and concern.

Pick the Right Foundation

When it comes to sweat and heat-proof foundations, seek one that is oil-free and lightweight. You want something that will provide coverage without leaving your skin feeling heavy or greasy. Make sure you also look for something that is marked as “long-lasting”. These formulas are usually made to last for hours, even in hot and humid conditions. In general, matte formulas tend to last longer than dewy ones.

Set Your Base

After you’ve applied your foundation, use powder to set it in place. This helps control oil production and prevents the foundation from melting off your face. Look for a translucent powder created specifically for oily skin. Apply the powder softly all over your face, focusing on your T-zone. Depending on what type of powder you are using (pressed or loose) you can either use a powder puff or a brush.

Waterproof Eye Products

Nothing ruins a makeup look faster than smudged mascara and eyeliner. To avoid this, opt for waterproof formulas that will stay put no matter how hot and humid it gets outside. Look for mascara and eyeliner that are specifically designed to be waterproof, as these tend to be more long-wearing and resistant to smudging. Just to be sure, you can also bring a few Q-tips for fixing any mascara or eyeliner smudges.

Don’t Forget About Setting Spray

Last but not least — make sure you’re also using a setting spray. But, you have to make sure that it’s actually setting spray. There are two types of makeup facial mists available on the market: setting sprays and fixing sprays. Setting sprays are formulated with ingredients that actually help your makeup last better, such as PVP. PVP, also known as Poly Vinyl Pyrollidone, helps your makeup adhere to your skin. On the other hand, fixing sprays are just meant to give your look a fresher and more natural finish. These are just a few ways to make your makeup sweat and heatproof.
