7 Best Summer Makeup Tips From Professional Artists — Expert Advice
When it comes to summer beauty products, sunscreen is probably the only thing you should be layering on thick. Makeup is a whole different story, seeing as anything you put on — whether it be a foundation, eye shadow, or bronzer — will most likely melt off the minute you step into the sweltering summer heat. (Thanks for that, sweat.)
It’s for this reason that almost every makeup artist in the game swears by super-lightweight, sheer and creamy products in the summertime — think tinted moisturizers and cream blush — as this helps lessen the chances of your makeup turning into a sweaty, cakey disaster the second the sun hits. Sweatproof and water-resistant products are also key, as is multitasking makeup you can bring with you to easily touch up throughout the day.
And yet, great makeup — no matter what the season — always starts with skin care. In fact, when Allure tapped several makeup artists to find out their best summer makeup tips, they all stressed the importance of proper exfoliation and prepping the skin with sunscreen.
