How to make your makeup last

Summer is upon us. Depending on where you are from you can look forward to lounging on the lake, river or if you’re lucky enough the beach! Along with the beautiful long, hot days comes annoying thing like humidity and sweat. One of the biggest problems I have during the summer is keeping my makeup on. This blog will discuss ways to help you keep your makeup on all day during those hot summer days.

The first tip is something I’ve already written about, setting spray. I love setting spray and it is even more helpful in the summer! If you plan on being outside for extended periods of time I would definitely recommend setting spray. This will keep your makeup looking fresh from morning till night. If you don’t remember how to apply setting spray, you simply hold the bottle at arms length and spray. You shouldn’t need to apply more than two squirts.

The next tip I have is to use primer with SPF. This will not only keep your foundation intact, but also protect your skin from harmful UV rays. The best way to apply primer is to mix it with your foundation, then apply to your face. This will keep your makeup fresh all day and your skin protected!

A good look for the summer is also the natural look. For this you can simply wear powder and mascara. This look is perfect for a simply day at the lake or any day. The natural is good because it requires less effort and is a great look! Another way to do the natural look is by simply not wearing any makeup. Embrace the natural beauty that you are and don’t worry about applying makeup!

In the summer something you should constantly be wearing is sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15. You should wear sunscreen year round, but you should especially wear sunscreen in the summer. The rays can really damage your skin and lead to awful things like skin cancer. As always, you should be sure to wash your face twice a day. It is also very important to keep your brushes clean to protect your skin.
