1. Choosing Summer-Friendly Beauty Products
Use and Oil-free Moisturizer
Choose a moisturizer that is designed for your skin type: normal, dry, oily etc. If you will use “oil-free” or “Non-Comedogenic” moisturizer your skin will be hydrated throughout the day but without extra oils.
Apply sunscreen under your foundation
While there are plenty of cosmetics with available with added SPF, you will get the best skin protection by applying a layer of undiluted sunscreen before makeup. Sunscreen is essential for keeping your skin healthy and preventing skin related problems.
If you have sensitive skin, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide based sunscreens are the best choice, make sure the SPF is at least 30.
Use gel and liquid based products
Cream based makeup tends to melt faster than liquid or gel based makeup. Not only melt, cream based formulas tend to feel greasy and heavy, which could be uncomfortable in hot day. Select a liquid and gel based beauty products.
If you like to use BB-Cream for natural look, try a light layer of liquid foundation instead, it will give you the same look, feel lighter and last longer.
BB-cream stands for blemish Balm or Blemish Base. It has lighter texture than a foundation which is suitable for all skin tones.
Try liquid concealer
Concealers comes in 2 forms: a creamy crayon and liquid-filled tube. During this summer, you want to choose latter because it is less likely to melt off.
Use water-resistant cosmetics sparingly
Waterproof makeup is designed to hold up to sweat and resist running and smudging. However, use it regularly can be super sticky for your skin. Waterproof mascara can also make your eyelashes tense if you wear it too often. Unless it is special occasion and waterproof makeup is an absolute must (e.g. for a summer photo shoot or a photo shoot at a pool) look for makeup water-resistant instead of waterproof.
Avoid waterproof makeup that containing silicone as primary ingredient. Too much silicone can clog up your pores, leading to irritation and breakouts.
Water-resistant beauty products containing polymers like acrylates copolymer and isododecane are safer for the skin than silicone-based beauty products.
Don’t forget to remove waterproof or water-resistant makeup, when you are done with high-quality, oil-free cleanser.
Choose cheek stain over powdered blush
In most cases, you want to stick with powdered makeup, but when it comes to blush, you actually avoid powder. This is because powder blush is more likely to looking cakey in hot day, Instead choose cheek gel or stain.
A creamy formula is also a good option, but be sure to blend it perfectly and apply translucent setting powder over it.
Wear lip stains instead of creamy lipstick
Thick, matte lipstick can look and feel too heavy in the summer. A lip stain, however, will give you a long-lasting touch of colors. If you need extra moisture apply a lip balm first.
For you making your look natural use pink and peachy shade. For a bolder look, try a brighter shade, like tangerine or grape.
An amazing alternative to lip stain is tinted lip balm or lip gloss.
2. Create a Summery Look
Use Bronzer for Sun-Kissed Look
Always focus on the areas that sun naturally touches, such as forehead, cheekbones, chin and nose. Use a powdered bronzer instead of cream based or liquor based product, that will be easier to apply.
If you have short hair length and like to wear your pulled up, apply some bronzer onto your neck, or ears as well.
Choose Matte over Shimmery Products
Shimmer is a great way to give your skin a dewy look, but the hot weather will make your skin look dewy. Opt for matte finish over shimmery, because shimmer will only make you look sweatier.Shimmery eye-shadow, bronzer, and lip gloss are fine, but stick with matte foundation.
If you like to use highlighter, choose something with matte, non-shimmery finish.
Try a bright, Vibrant color for your blush or eye shadow
If you don’t like bright colors, then you don’t have to; this is just an option. To keep yourself from looking too sweaty or overheated, consider using bronzer or peachy color tone instead of pink blush.
Wear clear mascara, instead of colored mascara
Unless you are going for a dramatic look, clear mascara will be enough to make your lashes look longer and fuller. It is also likely to smudge in the summer.
If you want a dramatic look, then choose dark brown or black mascara, but make sure that it is waterproof or water-resistant and be careful not to rub your eyes.
3. Prevent Your Makeup from Melting
Keep Your Makeup Light

Apply primer to keep your foundation in place

Apply primer after your moisturizer and sunscreen, but before your foundation.
Primers come in both tinted and clear formulas.Tinted is tend to cater for medium or fair skin, So, if you have pale or dark skin, a clear formula might be better for you.
Make your hair in an updo to keep it off on your face and neck
