While we’re welcoming the warmer weather with open arms, our skin is perhaps feeling a bit indifferent about the change in season. With temperatures soaring well into the 30-degree spectrum, flashbacks of sweaty faces and streaky foundation begin to haunt us. Summer doesn’t have to be so daunting, however. Switching up your makeup to cater for higher temps will do wonders for your overall look. With that said, here are a few tips to keep in mind when purchasing your next foundation.
Now that you’re exposed to the sun more than you were during the winter months, it’s time to consider changing the shade of your foundation, to one that complements your newly adopted tan. NYX Professional Makeup Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation is available in a variety of shades and it’s completely oil-free, allowing your skin to breathe.
Speaking of the sun, while you should always make use of products with an SPF, it’s especially important to adopt one during the summer months if you’re to prevent premature again and provide protection against harsh UV rays. We love L’Oréal Paris True Match Foundation with SPF 17 and patented colour technology that allows for a truly natural finish.
While winter calls for a more heavy-weight foundation, summer demands a lightweight option that can withstand heat, sweat and humidity. Maybelline Superstay 24HR Foundation provides just that, and is suitable for all skin types. Stay comfortable and enjoy naturally flawless-looking skin, even when faced with the harshest of weather conditions.
Make it Stick
The warmer weather brings with it the threat of sweat, and the first thing to suffer will be your foundation. And while the above foundations are designed to perfectly withstand the warmer weather, a good setting spray will ensure that everything stays perfectly in place. Try Urban Decay Chill Cooling and Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray, with temperature control technology that actually chills the surface of your makeup, keeping you looking fresh for up to 12 hours.
So, before you insist on staying indoors out or fear that your face may melt off when exposed to the sun, make the necessary foundation changes and embrace the warmer weather we’ve been longing for!
