I love almost everything about summer, even the suffocating heat – but I hate what it does to my makeup. I have a corporate job, so looking perfect and polished every single day is basically part of my job description. On those days when the temperature reaches ninety degrees basically from the moment the sun comes up, I'm always left with a melting face by the time I walk from my car into the office. I know lots of you understand how real the struggle is, right? Then this is for you. These tutorials will help you out so much this summer because they're all about sweat-proof makeup!
1 All the Products You'll Need
Now, for starters, you need to know which products will really be sweat-proof. This tutorial has a great list to get you started. Mind you, there are plenty of other products out there that guard against sweat, but this is a fantastic place to get started! What do you think?
2 Smudge Proof
Smudges are a telltale sign that you're either sweating through your makeup, or you're about to. This video tells you everything you need to know about avoiding the dreaded smudge. Just a tip from me to you, waterproof mascara is a great place to start – you're way less likely to end up with raccoon eyes just because you're sweating.
3 Foundation Routine
Now, your foundation routine really is the foundation of a sweat-proof makeup technique. If your foundation is too heavy or greasy, it makes you sweat more. If you don't apply it properly, it almost guarantees you'll sweat through your makeup. So, it's time to build up a better makeup foundation … with your foundation!
4 Full-faced, Full Coverage
I know a lot of girls and women who avoid going out with a full face of makeup because the threat of sweating it all off is just too high. That sucks for women who enjoy full-face coverage every day. It also sucks for women who need a full-face look for a special occasion. Fortunately, this tutorial will show you how to get full coverage without all the fear.
