Steamy Makeup Tips

Humid makeup



The summer heat is kicking in and if you live in area like I do in Savannah, you know you will have to endure the humidity.  There are some steamy makeup tips that help me try not put too much makeup during the summer, but I do try to make sure my skin is still refresh and glowing with just a touch of makeup.  Here are some routines and makeup goodies that I use to implement my summer rejuvenate glow. Here are some steamy makeup tips to follow:

1.Skin Care

Skincare is crucial, you need to make sure you are taking care of your skin and prepping it up for the summer. Make sure to create your own skin care routine. If you have oily, dry or sensitive skin, make sure to find the right products that work for your skin.  If you can go to a dermatologist or possibly go to the mall or beauty store and get advice if you have any questions or concerns of what products would work best for you.  Make sure to find the right moisturizer that contains SPF.

Here are what I use to keep my skin feeling healthy and protected from the Sun.

2.Prime Time

One thing that helps keep the makeup from running for me s the primer. It not only creates a smooth base, making whatever that goes on next mush smoother, but it will also increase its longevity. It’s like a glue that adheres your foundation on your skin and shields between skincare and your makeup.

If your skin gets clogged easily, go for oil-free ones and avoid silicone-textured ones. If you have oily skin, make sure you go for mattifying primers.  Using an eye primer will help your eye shadows last a whole lot longer and prevent creasing! Applying eye primer on your under eye area and on your laughing lines will lessen the chance or visibility of creasing in those areas. It’ll make your concealer last longer too.

Here are my personal favorites that are proven to be clog-proof!:

  1. Go Simple

It’s the summer and it’s hot! Don’t make your face endure too much during this season. Try not to apply a ton of makeup on your face because the cackier your face, the more likely it is for your makeup to separate and crease here and there will appear, also accentuating your pores. Yikes!

So, how to avoid having a cakey face?

1.Sheer is the key :

If you are having bad complexion let the concealer become your best friend. Apply one thin layer of foundation or tinted moisturizer, conceal anything else you need to hide with the concealer.

A foundation and concealer combo I heavily rely on for crazy hot and humid days.   You don’t need to have layers of foundation to make your skin look radiant. Sometimes too much can cause make it worse in the humidity.

  1. Go Oil-Free:

Products that contain oil are more likely to melt off of your skin. Plus, they are more likely to clog your pores too. So opt for oil free face products, especially when it comes to foundation.

  1. Avoid Over-Powdering:

Powder is often the culprit behind cakey faces, plus powder and sweat don’t mix together. Only powder areas where you really need extra oil-control such as the T-Zone area. Translucent powders help settle makeup with excellent oil control.

4.Stay fresh and dry by waterproof

One of the things I hate dealing with is finding the right mascara. Sometimes waterproof mascaras, become clumpy ,flaky than non-waterproof mascaras. However, there is a solution that I have found. I apply waterproof topcoat on the top of my non-waterproof

  1. Whip Out Your Creams

Cream-based are your besties when it comes to averting a makeup meltdown. They have better adherence to the skin than powder because they in reality stick on to the skin, whereas powder would just sit on top of your skin.

However, when cream and powder are combined, they last the longest. So try layering your creams with a bit of powder to lay it in place.

When it comes to eyeshadows, a trick I always do is to apply a cream shadow as a base before applying powder shadows.

For blushes, go easy on the cream – just apply a sheer layer of it and you can set it with a powder blush or highlighter afterwards.

My favorite cream blushes at the moment are

Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Cheek color Balm

When it comes to foundation, I try to be careful with applying to much. Cream foundations are usually thinker in texture. I make sour to apply just a thin amount and not overdue it. Using dampened beauty blender as helped keep my skin glowing and refresh.

Apply a lipbalm with SPF or lip gloss to enhance your refresh look. before applying any other lip products. Sun exposure will cause chapping and flaking, and you need to protect your lips from that!

A product that I go by is Rosebud Original Salve

6.Spray & Set

While we already love spritzing setting sprays on our faces, I like to décolletage and neck to help avoid telltale makeup streaks. “It also controls chest sweat,” he adds — something that is unfortunately all too common come summer. A good product that works for me is the Photo Finish Primer Water. Helps keep my face looking refresh and ready to tackle the heat.

Now I’m ready to endure this summer heat wave, I hope you do too!


An Eye in Color

Finding the right color that is eye catching can take a lot of work. You have to take time to see what works for you and what makes you feel sexy and comfortable. You have the chance to find that by experimenting with colors and finding your unique style. Also, the seasons can also alter your sense of color style. A person would rather wear something light for the summer and darker tone in the winter. Just take time to experiment even for 15 minutes. Make it a fun night, by putting on some music, getting some wine and trying out your outfits in your closet. You will be able to figure out what tone you feel like rockin!

But most of all have fun!
