Makeup Tips For Hot Weather

Summer isn’t entirely over and for those of us in the South and Southwest we are still going to be blasted with triple digit heat well into fall. It’s the unfortunate side effect of these regions. Add that heat into what makes the South interesting, humidity and it could be a disaster for your makeup. The best bit of advice is try your hardest to swing the natural summer look, but we all know that it’s not always going to work out. So here are some essential things to know before applying your makeup this summer or when it’s hot and humid. And for more summer makeup tips and keeping your look fresh, Summer Makeup.


1. Waterproof Mascara is a must. Not because of the swimming, it’s the sweat and the heat. It’s going to last longer and is really the best to use during the summer.

2. While I love gloss and shine during the summer, it’s actually a bad idea. So is any rich and/or thick makeup. Go with stains and tinted balms.

3. When it comes to foundation you need to go light weight. The thicker the foundation the worse it’s going to feel on you. Go sheer.

4. Adding along those very same lines, go light weight with everything else too, including your powders and eyeshadows.

5. Keep some non-essential makeup goodies around just in case. You may not use them all the time but they will come in handy.
