In summer, you want the lightest and most natural makeup possible. It is important not to forget about the pre-care stage and use an SPF cream that protects against the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation.

Keeping makeup fresh in the summer heat is not an easy task. Experts have shared some simple life hacks that will help make your makeup look light and as long-lasting as possible.

Waterproof mascara

Makeup artists advise using waterproof mascara in the summer. There are a few nuances here. The waterproof formula protects eyelashes from moisture. Professional brands often add useful ingredients to mascara that seal, strengthen, and prevent eyelash loss. However, there are also disadvantages. The long-lasting base may contain various chemicals that sometimes cause allergic reactions. The product should be thoroughly washed off with special products.

Light textures

Leave thick foundations for the cold season. In summer, it is better to choose liquid, weightless textures. Makeup is like a wardrobe, and you should have products that match the season: in summer, light care products and transparent foundations allow your skin to shine.

Transparent powder

Transparent powder will help to set your makeup. Apply it with a brush, carefully focusing on the oily areas of the T-zone.

"Thick makeup will melt in the sun. It's better to apply makeup base in small thin layers, not all at once. Apply a layer, let it set, and then add another layer if necessary," said makeup artist Saffron Hughes.

Setting spray

A setting spray will help to keep your makeup in place even on the hottest days. This product creates a protective barrier and provides a long-lasting effect. Some sprays even have a cooling effect. Spray evenly on your skin and let it dry naturally.

Wipes for excess oil

Carry mattifying wipes with you to help quickly absorb excess oil and sweat on your face. It's important to blot rather than rub: this will prevent makeup from rubbing off, while removing oil and maintaining a natural glow.

Glowing effect

"Mix a glowing primer with foundation or bronzer for a super-fast, sun-kissed finish," advises makeup artist Aimee Connolly.

You can apply cream blush to the cheeks, bridge of the nose, corners of the eyelids, and lips to get a matte, monochromatic effect.

SPF protection

Sunscreen protects against the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays and is crucial for maintaining youthful skin. SPF products do not have a cumulative effect, so they need to be renewed every 2-3 hours. You can replace the foundation with high-quality tinted sunscreens with an SPF of at least 30.
