How to Stay Matte in Summer Heat
Achieving your ideal makeup look can be difficult at any time of year but fighting summer heat brings new challenges to the table. The heat and humidity cause you to sweat and it can feel like your makeup is going to melt right off! We’ve been there and we know how frustrating it can be but, luckily, we have some tips and tricks that might help. Let’s talk about how to keep your makeup matte all day even on hot summer days.
- Mattifying Primer – Mattifying primer is a must for warmer weather. Before you put your makeup on, prime your skin with a primer that reduces the look of pores and makes your skin more matte; it will give your makeup a solid base to stick to without sliding around so much.
- Loose Powder – If you don’t already use loose powder, it is going to be your new best friend this summer. Loose setting powder is perfect for sucking excess moisture out of your makeup and leaving you matte and dry. Don’t be afraid to carry your powder with you in case you need a touch up. If you’re afraid to carry a container of loose powder in your purse, grab a pressed version for touch-ups but use loose in the morning.
- Blotting Sheets – Say hello to your other best friend, blotting sheets. Blotting sheets are paper sheets that are specifically designed to remove oil and sweat from your skin without removing or smudging your makeup. They come in small packs that easily fit in any size bag and they really do help makeup last longer on sweaty or oily days.
- Beauty Tonic – While you do want to mattify your skin during the day, it’s important to make sure your skin doesn’t get too dry. Over-dry skin can lead to flaking and the development of fine lines and wrinkles, both of which make makeup application more difficult. Beauty Tonic is a collagen supplement that contains collagen types I and III, the two types your body uses to support healthy skin.Beauty Tonic can help your skin retain moisture and reduce the look of fine lines without causing you to produce extra oil. It is a summer must-have.
