When we think of summer, we think of a sun-kissed, dewy, and light makeup look. One of the most important things you can do to ensure a successful summer makeup look is to choose the right shades. Fortunately, many light makeup shades work well for all skin tones.
Light makeup in summer is important because you’re out in the sun, and your skin is sweating and getting oily which can cause the makeup to melt. Light makeup with water-proof products can mitigate this issue. If you want to avoid the cakey and crumbled look this summer, try these suggestions to help you put your makeup on flawlessly:
Choosing the Right Foundation
When it comes to summer makeup, a foundation—the base of your makeup—can either make or break your entire look. In general, you should choose a foundation with a healthy glow that complements your natural skin tone. This way, the foundation’s subtle shade will blend well with your skin, giving you that easy, low-maintenance summer look you’re going for.
Using Sunscreen and Moisturizer
A moisturizer and an SPF can help seal the makeup product onto your skin. Sunscreen is a must-have during the summer months. Make sure you wear it every day to prevent premature aging and wrinkles. Along with a tinted moisturizer, this can seal your makeup and even out your foundation application.
Befriend Your Concealer
When it comes to summer makeup, concealer will be your best friend. To achieve a minimal yet flawless makeup look, apply concealer directly onto your moisturizer or primer before the foundation. An age-control concealer for dark spots is essential, especially if you’re planning to spend a lot of time outdoors. Our Dual Camouflage Concealer is suitable for all skin types and skin colors.
Using a Bronzer
Many people use bronzer as a base for quick summer makeup because it adds a little bit of color while still looking natural. This is the best decision if you want a dewy look. Using bronzer will also create a nice tan and accentuate your features when the sun hits your face.
To prevent sweat or heat from ruining your makeup, ensure you’re using a setting powder that will lock in the products on your face and keep your look intact for hours. Khuraira Original Invisible Touch Up Powder is a lightweight makeup powder that will maintain your makeup look for a few hours and keep your face sweat-free and flawless.
