One of the biggest challenges that women with oily skin face is to make their makeup last all day long. Especially when the weather is hot and humid, the task becomes more difficult. However it is possible to achieve a flawless face even in summers.
All you need to do is follow these simple steps and your makeup won’t break down on you:
1. Limit Your Morning Skincare
Skincare is essential, however if you have an oily skin type it’s better leave itfor night time. Instead of your morning skincare routine, go for a night time routine. Use light moisturizers in the morning with added SPF. Do not leave without SPF because your skin needs that extra care.
A primer creates a smooth base for foundation, minimizes your pores and controls oil. For oily skin, mattifying primers work great as they act as a barrier between the skin and foundation. Look for oil free primers and stay away from the primers that have a silicone texture.
Piling up products on your face will make it look cakey especially in hot weather; you should stay away from full coverage foundations. Look for matte foundations that last longer on your face. Avoid luminous foundations because you don’t want your skin to look shiny.
4. Waterproof Everything
Use waterproof mascaras and gel eye liners instead of regular pencil eye liners. If you think your waterproof mascara is a little chunky, use it as a top coat over your favorite mascara.
5. Stay Away from Creams
Instead of using cream based bronzers and blushes, use powders and stay away from highlighters because you don’t want end up looking like a disco ball.
It is always better to go a little light handed on makeup in summers. You don’t want your face to look like a mess so try using fewer products on your face. In the scorching heat mineral makeup is a great option as it protects your skin from harsh weather and provides it with essential nutrients.
