#1 Don’t skip out on skincare

Skincare is always very important, but going for a heavy moisture cream may not be very suitable for the humidity summer brings. As a makeup prep, choose an oil-free or glycerin-based moisturizer to make sure your skin stays free from grease. Before proceeding to your makeup, wait for the moisturizer to be fully absorbed first.

#3 Wear less foundation

Less is more when it comes to summer base makeup. Base makeup such as foundation tends to move a lot due to sweat and humidity. To prevent this from happening, keep your foundation at a minimal. If you want something comfortable and lightweight, BB or CC Creams work best.

#4 Finish with a makeup setting spray

Makeup setting sprays can work wonders for you especially during summer. A good makeup setting spray should seal your makeup in to boost its longevity and control excessive oil.

#5 Always prepare for touch-ups

There’s no need to pile up layers of cushion foundation or powder when you feel like retouching. This will only make your base look cakey. Instead, always keep blotting papers handy in order to easily and instantly whisk away sweat and oil.
