In the summer you tend to spend your time laying on the beach and shopping in the heat. You want to look your best no matter where you go, but it is hard to get that right look. Even when you try to do your makeup before going out it either looks too heavy or it completely melts on your face. With a few quick tips you can easily get a stunning exotic look, without those usual summer time problems.
Melt proof makeup tips
We all love summer, but with the sun and fun comes heat. We all love the social scene that is involved, but looking good is hard when your makeup is melting. There are things you can do to decrease the effects of summer time heat on your makeup.
Use the refrigerator: When the weather is hot the best thing that you can do with your makeup is keep it in the fridge. Everything from foundation to eyeliner can benefit from keeping them cool. An added bonus to this is that when you apply these cooled products to your face it will be amazingly refreshing.
Utilize matted powders: By applying a thin layer of matted powder to your eyes and lips you will ensure adherence of your products.
Go waterproof: When available buy waterproof products during the summer months. These items are less likely to melt.
Moisturize: The summer heat and activities can be very drying to your skin. Make sure before you ever put on any makeup that you moisturize your skin.
Exotic makeup looks
When you are going out during those hot summer nights the key is dressing to impress. This does not only mean the outfit you are wearing, you will also want your face to sizzle. There are some great looks that will give you that irresistible warm weather look that everyone will notice.
Exotic colors: The warm weather months are all about hot colors. Shades of pink, yellow, coral, and turquoise are all very hot colors for the summer. Just remember to stay true to your skin tone.
