it's festival season and that's a clear indicator that the heat is slowly creeping up on us.
as we slowly start to gear up for summer we need to not only get our wardrobe summer ready
but our makeup summer ready - in other words melt-proof. here's what it takes for heatproof makeup:
sunscreen // supergoop! spf 30
before layering on anything make sure you protect your skin with sunscreen.
sunscreen is a must all year around especially in the summer when the suns the strongest.
this sunscreen being a serum is light, not greasy & lays nicely underneath the foundation.
primer // hourglass viel mineral primer
this is my best friend!
i was never a firm believer in primer, but ever since i've been using it i don't go a day without it.
it helps to smooth out your skin and most importantly keeps your makeup on!
tip: simply apply it over your moisturizer/sunscreen and before you apply your foundation/bb cream.
foundation // chanel vitalumiere aqua
most of the foundations i've used in the past start to separate throughout the day (yuck!)
the chanel vitalumiere aqua lasts all day and gives me a natural velvety finish.
on top of that it even has spf 15 - bonus!
tip: i suggest applying this with your hands or with a damp beauty blender
eyeshadow // make up forever aqua cream
this creamy eyeshadow is nice so you don't look too dull.
it's long lasting and won't crease under any condition.
tip: apply a bit of the face primer or eye primer on your lid for longer lasting results
blush // makeupforever HD blush
powder can tend to start come off toward the end of the day.
so, for a long lasting blush, cream based is the way to go.
tip: use the back of the beauty blender for a more even finish
lipstick // bite beauty matte lip crayon
summer is all about color, so add a pop of color on your lips.
this lipstick can seriously last through multiple drinks & meals!!
perfect for festival season!
tip: for a little shine apply a clear gloss over
eyeliner // sephora retractable waterproof eyeliner
i've always used a gel eyeliner, but wanted to give this a try!
surprisingly it didn't give me a raccoon eye by the end of the day.
if you're looking for a natural eyeliner this is worth giving a try.
mascara top coat // anastasia lash genius waterproof mascara
this genius topcoat mascara (literally) can turn any mascara to be waterproof!
best thing about this is that it allows you to keep your favorite mascara.
