Makeup lovers always face the same problem in the summer: how to keep their look throughout the day in hot weather. Due to skin moisture, cosmetics can smudge or leak, which is why you have to constantly check the makeup and correct it if something goes wrong.

Meanwhile, makeup artists claim that it is quite possible to create waterproof makeup. To do this, you will have to use products with slightly different formulas. OBOZ.UA has figured out the nuances.

Usually, cosmetic products have a water-soluble base. They are easy to wash off, but also sensitive to sweat. Therefore, in the summer, you should give preference to formulas with the addition of silicone, which adheres better to the skin.

However, keep in mind that heat-resistant and waterproof makeup are not the same thing. The latter only protects against water. But real summer makeup should also be able to withstand the effects of sebum and salt, which are released with sweat. Here's how to do it right.

Prepare your skin properly

The first step, as always, is to apply a moisturizer. Then you need to lightly powder it with translucent powder and apply a long-lasting makeup primer. Once these products have been absorbed into the skin, you can proceed to applying foundation and concealer. You can apply them in your usual way.

When you've used all the cream and liquid products you've used to make up your face, set it with another layer of translucent powder. This will help to make your makeup even more durable. Finally, apply a setting spray all over your face.

Use blotting sheets

Wiping your face from sweat drops is also important. To do this, buy a special blotting paper. As soon as you feel excessive moisture, lightly touch your skin with it, and it will instantly absorb moisture and oil without affecting your makeup.

Check the composition of your foundation

Not all foundations have the same composition. Those that are suitable for summer should have a waxy or silicone base to provide the best protection against sweat. If you use a powder foundation, opt for a pressed product that provides extra coverage throughout the day.

Take care of your eye makeup

Making your eyeshadow sweat-proof is not an easy task, as oil in the creases of the eyelids quickly causes any product to roll off. However, using a primer can solve this problem. Use it before applying your favorite eyeshadow, and they will last much longer, and in addition, their color will become much brighter.
