MAKE-UP TIPS TO BEAT THE HEAT
Keep it fresh with some easy tips
W ith humidity skyrocketing and temperatures reaching the high 40s, it can be challenging to keep looking fresh throughout the day and into the night.
But you don’t have to have a melting face, all you need is a bit of preparation and some good quality products to be able to beat the heat.
Here are three ways to keep yourself looking fresh this summer...
BE PRIMED AND READY
Preparation is everything when it comes to long-lasting make-up. Adding a primer to your routine gives your base an extra layer of defence: the silky, almost dryfeeling formula doesn’t sink into skin but sits on the surface, meaning your foundation sits on top of that and won’t wear off as easily. Becca’s Ever Matte Pore Perfecting Primer (beccacosmetics.com) is perfect to keep your foundation in check. Otherwise, try the Max Factor Face Finity for a 3-in-1 approach, with primer, concealer and foundation all in one bottle. maxfactorarabia.com
SEAL YOUR LIPS
Whether you want sheer or full-impact colour, there's a lip product that will linger as long as you need it to. Smith & Cult The Tainted Lip Stained (net-a-porter.com), may look muted on the wand, but it’s formulated to react to the pH in lips, bringing out a brighter (but still subtle) shade that lasts even when the balm has worn off. For ultimate pout staying power, you can’t beat a matte lipstick. Try Made In Sephora lip stains for long-staying power. See sephorame.com
SET THE TONE
Once you’ve finished the rest of your make-up, a generous spritz of setting spray will create an invisible shield, locking foundation and blusher in place. Try the Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray for longer lasting looks, just spritz on top of your make-up. See urbandecay.com
