3 Heat-Proof Makeup Tips For A Flawless Summer Look
I’m sure a lot of you
ladies are looking for ways to prevent your summer makeup from melting and
disappearing in the hot humid weather. Well, Liza is here to help! Having lived
half my life in super-hot-all-year-round Asian countries, I have mastered some summer
makeup tricks that I’ll be happy to share with you.
Facial Mists Are Your Best Friend
Makeup artists and
models swear by it for a reason (actually more than one reason!).
Facial mist – the new holy grail on the beauty market! And if you haven’t tried it yet – now
is the time! Regardless of the season, facial mists must have their place in
your makeup bag if you ultimate goal is flawless look all-day-long.
How to use it? Where
do I begin…
Facial mist can be used
before your moisturizer and primer to refresh and “wake up” your skin. Apart
from that, you can spritz some when you’re done applying makeup in order to set
create a nice, “dewy look”. Facial mists are also great for touch-ups – they will soften the makeup you have on, without actually
dissolving it, and will allow you to make the necessary corrections. No more
Throughout the day, especially during the summer season, there
are times your makeup setting spray is failing you (yeah, we’ve all been
there), and by midday, your skin feels awfully dehydrated + your makeup is
a total mess.
Spritz-spritz and the glow is
back on your face. Besides that it feels soooo refreshing!
I told you – facial
mists are true multi-taskers!

Invest in a Mineral Foundation
If it is summer, when
temperatures are sure to reach sweaty-and-sticky levels (I know it doesn’t
sound nice, but, unfortunately, they do), try to avoid using liquid or cream foundations.
The thicker the product you are using, the worse it will look when you start
sweating. Your makeup will melt and cake and then, once it “cools down”, it
will seep into fine lines. Yuk!
If I look back, I have
to admit, I’ve tried so many foundations, that I can’t even count them. I just
couldn’t find the right one for makeup-melting weather! Luckily, one day, I
mineral foundations, which were new to me at the time. My first
impression – I WOW-ed! Literally1 After I’ve tried minerals – I’ve never turned back! With the right
primer and a good
kabuki brush, mineral foundations will last the whole day, ensuring
flawless look even after 8 hours of melting-hot weather. For even better results –
pair it with a cruelty free kabuki brush! Kabuki brushes are
ideal for the summer because they help set the product into your skin and keep
it there all day long (which is what we all want, right?)

Choose Waterproof Eyeliners and Mascaras
mascaras and eyeliners do not mix well with sweating. Fact.l I have been a
victim of this combination one too many times, wherein, just blinking, by
itself, transfers my mascara to my lower lids and my eyeliner to the creases of
my eyelids – you know what that means… raccoon eyes! To top it off, it
easily transfers to the wrong parts of
but it is so difficult to remove! Argh! So, yes, raccoon eyes all day. Ugh!
There are many brands that offer
waterproof, smudge-proof, budge-proof, and what not mascaras and eyeliner.
Invest in them! And
make sure they do not contain any harmful chemicals! During
the summer seasons, it almost impossible to avoid sweating, so better sure
than… raccoon eyes!
