Summer is here, and with the heat fast approaching that means one thing ladies we need our makeup to last all night long. Summer brings barbecues, pool parties,weddings, and numerous other events that we need to stay looking fabulous all day and night.
Here are some tips that will help your makeup last as long as possible.
Photo taken through out the day

around 4pm- only thing applied was lipstick
Taking care of your skin is laying the prep work for a smooth makeup application. Summer weather can be intense and switching up your routine can help your skin balance depending on the time of year. With the weather getting hotter, your body is sweating more and can lead to acne prone skin.
- exfoliate- peels and scrubs are great for the spring and summer time.
- lighter moisturizer- heavy creams can sometimes feel overkill as your skin doesn't dry out the same as it does in the winter. I prefer to use an argan oil product under my eyes as they dry out very easily.
- face masks- sweat and oil tends to make your body more prone to break outs since they tend to clog pores. Help your skin go from eww to ahh by using a clay face mask that will help clean out your pores and even prevent breakouts.
- sunscreen-applying sunscreen under your makeup is never a bad idea to help protect your skin. The only case this affects whether or not apply sunscreen is if you are a bride or taking photos for a big event. Sunscreen over a 15SPF can cause photo flash back, making your face appear as if you are Casper the friendly ghost. So if you are a bride, or even a bridesmaid I might suggest skipping on facial sunscreen for one day.
- hydration-It is extremely important to make sure you are drinking enough water through out the day. Hydration will allow your skin to look plumper and healthier.
- lip balm- as silly as this might sound using a lip balm is equally important. Lips can tend to dry out causing that matte lipstick color you might be dying to wear to not apply as well as it could.
