In summer, our skin feels differently than in winter. Accordingly, it requires a different approach to makeup, including switching to slightly different products.

Makeup artists advise to review the contents of your makeup bag every 6 months. OBOZ.UA tells you what they recommend to put in it for the summer season.

Moisturizing foundation

In the heat, dense foundations can feel like a real burden on the skin. Therefore, in summer, it is better to switch to light textures that allow your face to breathe. It is better to choose a medium or transparent coverage. The presence of UV filters in the composition will be a big plus.

Primer and setting spray

In the hot season, when the skin releases a lot of moisture, you need to pay special attention to products that ensure makeup durability. Don't forget to apply primer. This will not only prolong the durability of your makeup but also leave your skin feeling fresh and moisturized. And fix the look with a spray. It will prevent the makeup from rolling off, drying out, and crumbling.

Waterproof mascara

Pool parties, days at the beach, and summer adventures call for a mascara that's resistant to water and humidity. This product does not run or smudge. Your lashes stay voluminous and defined throughout the day. Plus, you'll look great in photos.

Cream blush

Give your cheeks a natural, moist flush with a cream blush. Creamy formulas are easily absorbed into the skin for a fresh look. Choose shades that mimic the natural color of flushed cheeks, such as pale pink, coral, or peach. This will make your look light and radiant.

Bright and bold lip colors

Summer is the perfect time to experiment with bright and bold lipstick colors. A spectacular shade looks good on summer days. But choose long-lasting and moisturizing formulas that don't dry out your lips. Matte, satin, or glossy finish - the choice is yours. The main thing is not to be afraid to experiment.

Blotting paper

To fight excessive shine and keep your makeup fresh throughout the day, use wipes made of special popper that control the oiliness of the skin. They quickly absorb oil and remove unwanted shine without disturbing makeup. Just apply them to the problem area and enjoy the result.

Lip balm with SPF

Don't forget to protect your lips from the sun's harmful rays. Buy a lip balm with a high SPF factor. It will not only provide moisturization but also protect delicate skin. Look for formulas that provide broad-spectrum protection and contain ingredients such as shea butter or coconut oil. This will not only protect your lips from sunburn but also keep them soft and supple throughout the summer season.
