Forget slapping on product after product. Instead, keep makeup to a minimum. Limiting the number of products on your skin will help them stay put. It will also give you a much fresher look, which is just the thing for hot days.


Summer Moisturizer

Put away that heavy winter moisturizer and use a lighter formula. A tinted moisturizer is ideal for giving a touch of coverage – preferably one with a sunscreen. That SPF factor will also mean you don’t need to use extra sun protection, and as mentioned above will reduce the number of products you need to use.



Preparing the face with a primer is like preparing a canvas – it helps the paint to stay put! This is particularly important in hot weather. Use a primer on your face and eyelids, and your makeup will last longer.



I don’t generally use powder much, but it is a summer essential. It will help fix your makeup and absorb any oil. Just remember to use a light touch, and dust off any excess as usual – you don’t want to look like a ghost!



Waterproof mascara is absolutely vital here! Alternatively, use an eyelash dye, and then your lashes will stay looking good for weeks. No worries about streaking mascara!

Put away that lipstick and use a light lip gloss to give a hint of color. You can also cover your lips with a pencil, although this is not recommended if your lips are dry.



Even with all of these tips, it’s wise to carry a packet of those tiny powder sheets. If you get a bit of shine, simply tear off a sheet and blot. No fuss, no mess!


Secret Weapon

Now this sounds perfect for summer! MAC Fix+ spray is a refreshing spray that fixes your makeup. It will also help your skin feel lovely and cool, so keep a bottle in your handbag.

What makeup tips can you add for the summer? Do you put that makeup bag away and wear nothing but sunscreen, or can’t you live without a full face?

setting powder is most important. If I don't set my makeup, it WILL melt in 3 hrs. another tip is to go for creme textures more since they last longer. for example, creme blush or bronzer instead of powder ones

Bronzer! It's light and gives you a nice glow. If you use the right amount that is.

If I can get away with it, I use a translucent powder to set my makeup...but if I need a little extra color and cover, I use a powder that is just a tad darker; it still sets my makeup, but it also does that double-work to help add the color where I need it. In either case, I definitely opt for the less-is-more when the heat and humidity are on the rise!

Hi, I live in the hottest country on the face of earth, i live in Kuwait. It's really hard to keep ur face clean in that scorching heat, dust and humidity :((( This year i developed a 4 steps, easy to wear look. 1- I discovered a wonder product called "Shiseido Soothing Spray" It's light & clear like water,i spray it on my face and neck after cleansing and massage. It leaves ur skin feeling cool, soft and clean with no stickiness. 2- Moisturize 3- Apply "that gal" by benefit. 4- Buff the t-zone Done and ready to go with a clean looking bright face :)))
