Nothing says summer quite like a patio. Whether you limit your outdoor time to sitting outside for brunch or plan your whole day around a backyard BBQ, there’s a high chance you’ll experience at least a slight perspiration. During the warmer months, this slight glisten (or full on sweat) is inevitable but your makeup doesn’t have to suffer. Take a look at our top 9 tips for patio-proofing your beauty routine but remember, try and embrace the heat, it is summer after all.
You might think using a primer under foundation would make your face feel too heavy for outdoor activities but it can actually work in your favor to help keep everything in place. Try out a mattifying primer on your t-zone for areas prone to oil.
Although none of our formulas will cake or crease in the heat, choosing liquid/creams lets you embrace the heat and added moisture for an effortlessly dewy look. Easily add that lit-from-within glow with a sheer foundation and cream blush.
Don’t get us wrong, we love pops of color for summer but when you’re going to be outside all day, neutral shades will feel more natural and will look less obvious if they do start to melt- think, a bronze, smokey eye.
Less is More
Now is the perfect time to show off your glo-ing complexion, by going makeup free! If going barefaced makes you more uncomfortable than squiggle brows, try out a light coverage formula to let your skin breathe in the heat.
Being in the sun all day can be incredibly drying for the skin. To help prevent any dehydration, use a moisturizer morning and night. Look for lightweight formulas that promote added hydration and prevent moisture loss. Need a product that will also help reduce shine? Look no further than our reformulated Oil Control Emulsion.
This one may seem like a no brainer but it’s easily overlooked. If you don’t love water resistant mascara formula, try layering it on top of your normal formula for added wetness protection.
Start your morning routine with a multi-tasking product that contains SPF like Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+ or Tinted Primer SPF 30, then carry a spray or powder version for easy reapplication throughout the day like Protecting Powder SPF 20.
