Top 15 Summer Makeup Tips For The Ultimate Glow

1: Use A Primer Before Applying Makeup

Making the primer a necessary part of your makeup routine is one of the most important summer makeup tips

The primer smoothens your skin and conceals any bumps you may have. This creates an even base on which you can apply foundation. Using a primer as your base ensures your makeup lasts longer.

2: Get Sunscreen Protection

You must protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun all year round. However, sunscreen protection is given most importance during the excruciating summer months. The intense heat and humidity can severely damage your skin. 

This is why you must keep applying sunscreen when you’re out in the sun. While this may be difficult to follow if you have a hectic day ahead, use the UV Shield Sunscreen Fairness Lotion from Oshea Herbals which offers protection for a long period!

The effective formula of this sunscreen not only forms a protective shield against the sun but also restores the moisture you lose through sweating. 

3: Apply A Darker Shade Of Long-Lasting Foundation

Despite using adequate sunscreen, your skin may undergo tanning and burns. In that case, the foundation that you usually use will no longer match your skin tone. Using a lighter shade foundation on your face will make you look paler than the rest of your body. 

To avoid this unappealing sight, go on a quick shopping spree and get yourself a darker shade of foundation. 

Moreover, the longevity of your makeup heavily relies on the quality of your foundation. Hence, make sure you buy a long-lasting foundation.

4: Tone Down Your Regular Makeup Routine

A full face of makeup is quite appealing, but can the same be said during summer? Needless to say, heavy sweating is a daily occurrence during the summer months. Heavy makeup will be ruined the moment you step out under the sun. 

If you want to avoid any makeup disasters, one of the summer makeup tips is to tone done your regular makeup routine. Light makeup not only feels more comfortable, but it also has reduced chances of getting ruined due to heat and sweat.

5: Spray Refreshing Facial Mists Or A Toner

Applying cosmetic products on your face regularly can make it dry and damaged. This is why you must begin your makeup routine with refreshing facial mists that hydrate your skin.

Using a toner like the Phytoage Age Reversal Skin or the RoseFresh Facial Skin Toner from Oshea Herbals not only cleanses and moisturizes your skin but also forms a strong base for your makeup to last long.

6: Avoid A Creamy Makeup Look

A creamy makeup look does not last for long during summer, especially if you are sweating profusely. This is why one of the summer makeup tips you must maintain is to create a matte makeup look. 

Creamy makeup can start peeling in excessive heat. However, a matte finish will not even crease. Moreover, people with oily skin will benefit from a matte makeup look.

7: Rejuvenate Your Lips With Gloss

Who isn’t a fan of lipsticks? However, certain rules must be followed during summer if you want your lips to look healthy and great.

The first rule is to avoid heavy and creamy lipsticks. This is because the heat can make your lips dry and cause the lipstick to peel. 

Mesmeric High Shine Lip Gloss

Instead, switch to the Mesmeric High Shine Lip Gloss from Oshea Herbals which not only keeps your lips moisturized during the intense summer heat but also protects from the sun.

8: Don’t Overdo Your Bronzer

Shop for a bronzer that is two shades darker than your foundation tone and lightly contour your face. One of the often overlooked summer makeup tips is to avoid using an excessive amount of bronzer during the summer months because it can make your face look unnecessarily tanned. 

However, an adequate amount of bronzer can really accentuate your light makeup look with a radiant glow.

9: Use Minimal Blush For Natural Radiance

The summer heat will already make you feel red in the face which is why you must not overdo it with excessive blush. 

However, a light amount will not hurt. Instead, it can make your skin emit a radiant glow and turn your smile brighter. Make sure to use cream blushes instead of powder because the sweat will melt the powder away.

10: Use Waterproof Mascara

It is important to use sweat-proof makeup during summer for a long-lasting look. This is why you must upgrade to the Mesmeric Long Lash Mascara from Oshea Herbals! Make your lashes seem longer and more beautiful with this waterproof mascara

Even if you sweat throughout the day, your mascara will remain intact and greatly increase the appeal of your entire makeup look.

11: Refrain From Eyebrow Plucking

Since all the summer makeup tips emphasize applying light makeup and carrying a natural look, it is also recommended that you do not pluck your eyebrows and draw them manually. 

Using an additional beauty product on your face increases the chances of your entire makeup look getting ruined due to heat and sweat. Moreover, your natural eyebrows will look exceptional in the natural sunlight.

12: Make Use Of Blotting Paper

If your makeup does not set in properly, it will quickly run down while you sweat excessively. This is where blotting paper comes in handy during your makeup routine. 

After you have completed your full face of makeup, take a piece of blotting paper and gently dab on your face. This removes any excess beauty products and also hints of oil that can affect your makeup later.

13: Let Your Eyes Stand Out

Going easy on your makeup routine does not mean you cannot experiment with your eyes. Let your eyes do the talking with the Mesmeric Liquid Eye Liner from Oshea Herbals!

The product is available in different shades so you can boldly experiment and make them stand out. Bright and colourful eyes on a light makeup face look exceptionally charming.

14: Spray Yourself With Light Fragrances

Profusely sweating can emit foul odours from your body. However, that does not mean you will dip yourself in a bottle of perfume or deodorant. Heavy fragrances can often make you feel nauseous or sick. 

Instead, choose some light and soothing fragrances. The key to making the pleasant fragrance last long is to spray yourself in particular places like your underarms, the sides of your neck, your wrists, down your chest, and the back of your knees.

15: Exfoliate Regularly (Activated Charcoal Facewash and Face Scrub, Apricot, Caffein-Pro Face Scrub)

Finally, one of the most important summer makeup tips is to keep your skin clean, clear, and healthy. The heat from the sun opens up your skin pores more than usual. Excess sweat and wearing makeup every day can clog those pores. 

This is why it is important to follow an exfoliating routine at least twice a week. Get excellent results with the Activated Charcoal Facewash and Face Scrub from Oshea Herbals!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: What makeup is best for summer?

Q4: How can I look beautiful in summer?

Ans: You can look beautiful in summer by applying light makeup on your face and letting your eyes steal the spotlight by using a colourful liner or eye shadow.
