Maintaining fresh and long-lasting makeup during the hottest season of the year can be quite challenging. To
make your life easier and your look flawless, follow these effortless summer makeup tips for the ultimate routine.
01. MINIMAL SKINCARE
To ensure that your makeup will last all day during the summer heat and humidity it is important to prep your skin! Since we want to focus on sweat proof-makeup you should stick to the essentials when it comes to your skincare routine. Especially during summer - less is definitely more! For a simple yet effective skincare routine, all you need is a good cleanser, optionally a toner, and a lightweight moisturizer. Skip unnecessary products to create a good base for your makeup. Don’t forget sunscreen as the last step of your skincare routine and let it sit for a few minutes before you apply any other products.
02: PRIMER IS A MUST
Save time with multitasking skincare products that cater to your specific needs. Try the
Revitalizing Pearls Infusion Serum, which is a rejuvenating skin elixir for deep hydration that
can also be used as a primer. After applying the primer, allow it to settle for a moment
before you continue with foundation or concealer..
03: KEEP IT SIMPLE
When it comes to foundation and concealer during the summertime,
it would be best to focus on lightweight products. It is the perfect opportunity to switch out your heavy full coverage foundation for a more lightweight option or maybe even a face tint. If you want to go for a more natural look, you should only reach for the products you truly need. Sometimes concealer might be enough to cover up some imperfections without having to use a full coverage foundation.

FAVORITE MOISTURIZER TO CREATE A MORE LIGHTWEIGHT TEXTURE.”
04. MAKE IT LAST
Setting your makeup with the right powder is essential for it to stay in place all day. This step is especially important for people that are more likely to have oily or combination skin. Don’t apply the powder all over your face.
Instead focus on the t-zone which tends to accumulate the most amount of sweat. The Hydrating Sheer Powder is perfect for a summer makeup look since it is lightweight, non-clogging, and offers a breathable texture with buildable coverage.

THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND REAPPLY IT IF NEEDED.”
05. WATERPROOF IS KEY
Opting for a waterproof version of your favorite mascara and eyeliner will make your life a lot easier! This way your makeup stays intact even underwater, allowing you to look good while swimming without any concerns about smudged eye makeup.
