Top 10 Summer Makeup Hacks!

by Jannat Manghnani on July 12th, 2016

Summer is all about cute sundresses, mojitos and beachy instagrams.. But while you get all that sorted as the summer arrives, there are a few things that can create a havoc and can be a real drag in terms of beauty and makeup. So I have collected my favourite; literally life saving- beauty hacks here, to keep you looking picture perfect all summer long! 
​​Ice Yourself:
No matter, what the weather outside is like, this is one essential step I never miss. Its as easy as rubbing an ice-cube over your face a couple of times! 

What it does? 

It basically seals up your pores and makes your face make-up ready, like a perfect blank canvas! Closed pores also mean that there will be lesser chances of a break-out so it is definitely a win-win! 
​Primer Primer:
Use a pea-size blob on your face after the moisturiser on the areas that easily become shiny! Primer’s generally have color-correcting yellow base and light-reflective pigments, that immediately neutralizes the appearance of discoloration, uneven skintone, and redness for brighter, fresh-looking skin. The come in a variety of forms but they will glide on seamlessly, combatting flaky dryness, rough patches, and uneven skin texture. 

Perfect base step, which will help you retain that foundation so that it doesn’t just melt away!
Blotting Is The Key:
Cannot escape this step! If you are like me, you will break a tiny amount of sweat no matter how much prep you do, and i that case, there is nothing better than a good blotting paper or honestly a good old tissue will also suffice! All you have to do is dab lightly so the paper soaks the shininess and you are good to go! 
Face Mists:
To avoid a face of makeup instantly melting once it hits the heat, use a makeup setting spray. Mist your face gently from a six-inch distance in a T-formation and then an X-formation for some serious staying power.
Always Go Waterproof:
This one is no brainer! No matter what the season is, ALWAYS go waterproof for all products available, especially eye products, to avoid “raccoon eyes” when dark makeup transfers onto under eye areas or the eye lids! 

Water-proof makeup generally has a lower water content and therefore is less likely to smudge!
Bye Bye Smokey Eye:
Don’t. Just Don’t.. Eye shadow in hot weather can quickly melt, due to the powdery consistency meeting moisture and oils.

For an alternative to eye shadow, run a nude liner on the bottom water-line to instantly open up eyes, for a fresh look.

And if you must, then use a dab of primer or even a swipe of foundation all along the eyelid before applying the eye shadow. This will act as a base between the skin and the eye shadow, giving it something to hold onto.
​Tint Away:
Yes, lipstick does offer a more intensely coloured pout, but trust me you’d rather stick to something non-heavy on particularly hot days! A tint or a lip stain sticks to the lips rather than be an additional layer on top so it has better staying power.. Also, it tends to be more flattering when worn with a dewy sun-kissed complexion than a heavy lipstick!
Creamy Cheeks:
Powder blushes can often leave a patchy look, especially the highly pigmented ones.. While the cream blushes can be easily swept on with your fingers even, making it look much more natural and it blends in perfectly, all adding on to the sun-kissed healthy look! 
​Less IS More:
The key is always to apply thin layers of whatever product is being used: from a moisturiser to the foundation to the blush! Less cakey makeup means its less likely to slide off, and might leave a greasy residue on the skin! Oil-free and silicon based makeup products work the best to stay ahead during the summers! BB and CC creams usually do the job, and if you MUST apply foundation- try the Estee Lauder Double wear foundation! 
Embrace The Glow:
Why not? To make the most of the dewiness caused by the heat add a dab of highlighter at the right places like top of your cheekbones, next to the eyes.. This will just enhance the unavoidable, but in your favour!
