As the mercury is rising, skin and hair woes have become common problems. Even the brightest of the makeup couldn’t survive the scorching heat of sun. This summer, drop your dark and bright make-up palette to look your glamourous best. This summer, let’s follow the funda of less is more. Opt for a subtle yet bold look, the experts say. Rashi Menda, CEO and founder, Zapyle, an online marketplace for premium fashion, and Farheen Islam, Fashion Curator at Roposo - the fashion social network, have shared tips:
Hangout with friends
Keep your makeup natural and light. Look effortless yet glamourous. Embrace the summer vibe and refrain from using too much of makeup in summer. Use a semi-matte concealer stick.
For bright, sunny brunches
Use light shimmery blush in peach or pink undertones over the apple of your cheeks. Don’t go overboard. It will make your photographs look fresh and sunkissed.
For the summer dance parties
Keep it minimal even for the dance parties. Apply a bit of highlighter on the bridge of your nose and on top of your cheekbones. You can also use the cream based highlighter to illuminate your shoulders.
Make your lips summer ready
Summer is the time when you drink lots of fluids. You would neither want to leave lipstick on every glass at restaurants and pubs or let the heat make your lipstick bleed. It will be only wise to use a lip liner before applying any lipstick as it controls the chances of bleeding. So, pick a lip liner of the same colour of the lipstick you are going to use. Try the lip pencils that are smooth enough to define, enhance and complement any colour of lipstick or gloss.
Use SPF-based make-up
It is important to protect your skin from dryness, tanning and premature ageing, especially during summer. Make-up with SPF content in it will shield your skin from the heat outside and will make you look gorgeous in summer without compromising with the health of your skin.
Wear waterproof make-up
The most annoying thing about summer is the constant sweating which ruins your make-up. Either the make-up starts coming off or starts cracking altogether. Waterproof make-up stands out as the ultimate saviour. Not only is it light on your skin but is long lasting as well.
Ditch the shimmer, go for dewy and natural look
Natural and dewy look is the most convenient and apt look for summer. It saves people from applying heavy foundation on the face and helps to get sun-kissed look with just a concealer, blush and highlighter.
Blotting papers for your rescue
To get rid of sticky summer skin, people usually go for thick absorbent powder or extreme mattifying make-up but there is a delicate fix to it. Use blotting papers to soak up moisture and get the fresh look.
