Heat-Proof Summer Makeup Tips
While we all want our makeup to last the distance, sometimes the heat and humidity can cause creasing, oily patches and even shiny skin. This summer, prep your face with a few of our beauty-bag essentials for heat-proof summer makeup.
Before applying your foundation, it’s important to use a primer on freshly cleansed skin. Not only will it make your foundation last longer, but it creates a barrier between your skin and the makeup itself so it won’t clog your pores! Wait 1-2 minutes until the primer has completely set into the skin, then apply your foundation as usual.

If you suffer from particularly oily skin, you might know that patches are a fact of life. Carry a few blotting sheets in your handbag to soak up the excess oil, and keep your skin matte for longer.

Before leaving the house, set your makeup with a translucent spray to control oily patches and mattify your makeup. Spray it generously over your face and neck, then wipe off the excess with a tissue or cotton pad.

Using cream products is the best way to make the most of your natural oils during the summer. A cream highlighter, illuminator, bronzer and blush can be easily applied with just the fingertips, and is ideal if you’re creating a natural makeup look.

Before prepping your skin for foundation, it’s important to lock-in hydration with an oil-free moisturiser. These formulas are great for summer since they won’t clog your skin with additional oils, and will keep it looking matte for longer.
