Summer-Proof Makeup Products Worth Getting
By Tammy Gibson
It’s time for some summertime fun, like splashing in waves, family vacations, Fourth of July parties and chilling at a backyard BBQ. But before you dive in, make sure your makeup bag is well stocked with the necessary summer beauty products to keep you looking spectacular through the onslaught of heat, sweat, humidity and bodies of water.
To protect your makeup from water, sweat and humidity, a primer is a must, especially for women with combination to oily skin. Apply it before foundation or BB cream to give your skin a melt-proof finish.
Substitute your regular lipstick and blush for lip and cheek stain during the summer months. By giving long-lasting matte color that endures the heat, stains are the ideal go-to for travel and waterside fun.
Waterproof cream eye shadows are highly pigmented and long-lasting. These products are a great option when you need to wear a full face of makeup, like when attending an outdoor wedding on a hot summer day.
This beauty product is one to invest in for summer if you want to avoid the dreaded “raccoon eyes” that happen when regular mascara and swimming pools meet. Today’s marketplace has so many waterproof mascaras available at all different price points; there’s really no reason not to own one.
Highly pigmented pencil liner or liquid liner will help you achieve the polished look you desire even when you feel like you are wilting. When you are ready to call it quits for the day, simply remove it with a good eye makeup remover.
