7 Ways To Keep Make-Up Fresh During Heat Wave
Unless you've been living under a rock, you know it's going to be HOT this weekend at Boise Music Festival. If you want to keep your selfies looking on fleek, here's seven tips to help keep your make-up looking fresh even when it's over 103º degrees!
If you don't have much make-up on to begin with, you have less to worry about when it heats up. Cut down on how much make-up you include in routine and go with just a tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone and give you a summer glow.
It seems counter-intuitive, but a mineral water spray like the Evian ones Sephora sells actually revives your make-up instead of washing it off. The cleansing mist helps remove sweat and salt while re-hydrating your sunburnt or wind-chapped skin. It's not that expensive either. You can pick up a water spray at Sephora for $12.50!
This should be a no brainer. If a waterproof mascara can look just as good getting out of a pool as when you jumped in, the triple digit heat ain't got nothing on it!
If you really need to go for full make-up (and trust me, I get it...my acne cleared up for the first time EVER this year. Before that I insisted on full foundation even when I was at the gym or playing soccer) use a primer underneath your make up. Putting down a base coat for your make-up will make it stay fresh longer. Think of it like putting primer on a wall before you paint it!
This is a MUST have. Don't turn to using a napkin from one of the vendors to clean up that shine. Blotting papers are cheaper and more portable than using a pressed powder. Throw a pack in your back pocket and you're good to go!
I love rocking that "red lip classic thing" as much as Taylor Swift, but it's just not smart in the heat. Lipstick is heavier and more likely to melt in the sun. Instead opt for a lighter lip gloss that won't melt in your purse. It looks great in the sun too!
Again, if you're going to use full make-up on Saturday try changing up your foundation. Go for a lighter, oil-free or mineral foundation to help cut down on the shine and stick longer. I'm personally a fan of Neutrogena's Skin Clearing oil-free make-up. You can get it at drug stores for under $14!
