Summer Beauty Checklist

When it comes to summer beauty, you should probably put aside most of your tried and trusted products and techniques and embrace the lighter side. Summer heat and humidity are quite tricky for your makeup, chances are most of your makeup will start melting and sliding off your face the minute your step out the door. But of course, by now you probably know a thing or two about switching techniques during the hot months so here below is a run down of the best summer beauty tips according to the experts!

 

1 || Exfoliate

Exfoliation is important year round but it is crucial during the hotter months. You can choose to exfoliate using the trusted AHAs and BHA’s, or you can aim to try out some of the exfoliation treatments around. Dermaplaning is an exfoliation method that is slowly gaining ground lately and it relies on the use of a sharp tool to scrape off the outer layer of the skin. If you haven’t tried this before it is highly recommended that you do this with a trusted beautician.

2 || Sunscreen

The only thing that you should apply with a heavy hand this season is the sunscreen, but you probably knew that right! Streamline your routine by choosing the right UV protection, broadband, SPF 50, non-greasy sunscreens. To reapply your sunscreen during the day either choose a mist or a powder sunscreen for easier application.

Invest in a waterproof mascara and liquid liner now! I hear ya, they’re a mess to deal with and taking them off is the most dreaded task but they’re a must-have for summer, especially if you’re embarking on a beach getaway. You can get by with a bare face if your mascara and liner are there to stay.

4 || Sweatproof

Or again waterproof is not just for eye makeup. Nowadays you can find most makeup items in water-resistant formulas that can withstand the water, sweat, humidity and heat.

5 || Sheer & Lightweight

If you cannot dare to go bare-faced, then opt for a tinted moisturiser, or a foundation that is super sheer. One trick of the trade that you can adopt is to mix your oil-free moisturiser with your favourite foundation for softer coverage.

6 || Multitasking Products

Invest in a multitasking product that does it all for you. Look for a product such as the Nars Multiple which can be applied to the cheeks, lips, and eyelids and can save you from hoarding all your beauty essentials while bestowing you with an all-over monochromatic creamy glow.

7 || Lip Love

Avoid the dreaded dry lip this season by properly protecting your lips from the sun, by regularly exfoliating them and keeping them well hydrated throughout the day. Should you insist on wearing your matte liquid lipstick, make sure you apply lip balm first. Not only will the lips stay moist, but the liquid lipstick will have a slight sheen to it that keeps it looking fresh for the whole day.
