4 Simple Tips to Get Your Makeup to Stay Put All Day During the Summer:
- Wash your face both morning and night with a daily clarifying cleanser during the summer and follow with a witch hazel or rose water toner. This ensures that your face is well-cleansed, but not stripped of vital moisture and it also leaves your face in the perfect, matte- like palette that's ready to grab onto your makeup and help keep in it place- even when exposed to hotter temps.
- Apply a face primer with a makeup sponge on your entire face and allow it to fully dry before applying your liquid makeup/foundation & concealer. Use 1-2 small dots of eye shadow primer to each lid as well to help keep eye makeup from bleeding, smudging, & bleeding.
- Utilize natural rice blotting papers to soak up excess oil, sebum, & dirt mid-day or take with you while on-the-go mattifying power anywhere you are. This also helps your makeup stay put and prevents shine.
- Try makeup designed for an active lifestyle- like today's recommend product from Sweat: Mineral Foundation with SPF 30! There are many options out on the market made to stay put, with water-resistant, smudge-proof, sweat-resistant formulas to stay right where you left them...even with all of the summer heat!
