Guest post: How to make your makeup last longer in summer

How to make your make up last longer in summer

Summer is on it's way! Or so I hear... Ok, so maybe it's not doing long term stints but when it does, you'll want to be prepared for the hotter weather and be ready to make your make up stick around for longer.

It's easy enough to go on with our usual make up regime but it's always good to switch things up depending on the season and when it comes to the summer months I always look for primers, long-wearing products and more creamy items that I know work best in warmer weather. 

Using a primer is my first tip and the one that I'd say to definitely go with even if you skip everything else as it'll really make a difference. My go to at the moment is Max Factor's new FaceFinity All Day Primer which was the one makeup artists begged to be retracted for their FaceFinity foundation as they loved the primer element so much. It's probably the best I've tried in a very long time, my makeup sticks around it's not greasy nor is it too matte - it just does exactly what you want.
Speaking of primers, eye primers are also a great option. I don't always opt for it but if I'm wearing a heavier eyeshadow look, something like Rimmel's Exaggerate Undercover Primer is a nice safety net to make sure it all stays put.

Onto bases, my top pick is Bourjois' 123 Perfect CC Cream. I seriously cannot express just how brilliant this is - it eliminates redness instantly and gives a decent amount of coverage considering it's a CC cream whilst leaving the skin beautifully dewy. It sticks round a good while too and the SPF15 is an added bonus. 

As I mentioned before, I prefer cream products during summer so things like blushers and highlighters tend to be in that formula over powders. Rimmel's Stay Blushed cream blush in Sunkissed Cherry shade is one of my all time favourites. It's one of those colours that looks great paired with bronzer and lots of different eyeshadow looks. Along with this, my highlighter of choice is No7's Instant Radiance - another cream product and it works beautifully. It's got just the right amount of shimmer and looks so stunning on the skin. 

Finally for eyeshadows, the one and only product I'd recommend is the Scandaleyes from Rimmel. Man these having some staying power! It looks like a lipgloss but housed inside is a metallic liquid eyeshadow that lasts for hours once it's set. It's super easy to blend out and can be applied quickly with fingers. My favourite shade is Rich Russett - a gorgeous bronze metallic that flatters pretty much all skin tones. You can use it alone or as a base and it'll make anything layered on top last just that little bit longer.

  1. Great tips! I must admit, I tend to skip foundation on the hottest days and go straight for a tinted moisturiser with added SPF. Ugh, totally hate when it goes all patchy on your upper lip - not a good look, lol.

  2. Interesting read. Right now I am looking for a lightweight foundation that still stays matte, it gets really hot and humid here in summer.
