How to Mattify your Makeup

With the temperature getting hotter as we approach summer we want to look our best to beat the heat. We have a few helpful tips and tricks to help keep your makeup from melting while you’re soaking up the sun this season!

1. Pick a Good Primer – primer is designed to make your make up stay in place, so utilize it!

 2. Avoid Oil – Based Foundation and Makeup; the lighter the better!

  1. Make Your Eyes Waterproof – you can use your regular formula you love and just apply a waterproof topcoat; it’s a win-win!

            For specific waterproof mascaras we recommend check out another one of our blog posts called “It’s Waterproof Season!”

  1. Set Everything with a Translucent Powder – people swear by Makeup For Ever’s HD Powder. It airbrushes your face so nothing moves.We also recommend blotting papers! These are perfect for the little bit of shine that starts to show on your face. They can easily fit in your purse and a few dabs make for a quick touch up.

Our last tip is to wear your hair up. Not only does wearing your hair up keep your hair from sticking to your neck, but it also stops oils and sweat from being near your face. You will feel cooler and can try some chic updos for the summer!
