Best Tips & Tricks for Flawless Summer Makeup

Posted on

Does keeping your hair and makeup away from all the sweat and grease in the summer seem like a huge challenge? Keep reading for the best summer beauty tips that’ll make your face show that amazing glow even on the hottest of days.

Fresh skin


Your best bet for fresh skin during the steamy summer days are creamy formulation foundations rather than powdery ones. CC cream is a great choice if you prefer very light coverage as it is much lighter in texture than any foundation, the downside being that it will mostly just even out your skin tone rather than cover any pimples or more visible imperfections.

If you are set on using full-coverage foundation, try mixing your primer with your foundation -- yes, you read that right! Switch up the way you use primer and mix it with your foundation before applying it to your face, as this will allow for the foundation to set into your skin better and help avoid melting in the heat. The look you will get if you use this trick is dewy, fresh skin with full coverage that does not look cakey.

Pro tip: Don’t forget sunscreen! One of the most important tips for a summer foundation is to get one with a high sun protection factor. Since the skin on your face is super sensitive, we suggest using products with spf 50 or higher.

Playful eyes


Summer is the best season to play around with color, and your eyelids make the perfect canvas for this! If you’re looking at super long-lasting makeup, metallic eyeshadows are the best choice. They will brighten up your eyes and make them pop with a cool glow, and the shades will only look better the hotter it gets!

Nowadays, metallics have been making a huge comeback so you can find them in almost any color -- from the classic gold and copper to popping reds, blues, and greens! When choosing the right texture, the best one to go for in the summer is a creamy shadow.

The perfect blush


During the summer, you may want to switch from your regular, colored blush to a light bronzer -- considering the heat is likely to give you naturally pinky cheeks.

Get that bronze summer glow by applying liquid highlighter to your cheeks with a damp sponge for a gorgeous, sunkissed glow. This way, the bronzer will melt into your skin for a dewy finish that looks great both in the sun and in the shade.

Poppin’ lips


Say bye-bye to heavy lipstick, and join the fun world of colored glosses! The number one rule of summer makeup is to keep it as light as possible, so that you avoid a cakey-looking face.

When it comes to lips, liquid glosses have been making a huge comeback. Just like with eyeshadow, you can play with a wide range of colors with only one rule -- the shinier the better!


We all know that the hottest season of the year can make us go from loving to dreading makeup in no time. Hopefully, these tips and tricks will make your summer 2019 makeup routines easier and keep them fun!

To sum up -- our top tips for summer makeup are: play with bright colors on your eyes and lips, and keep your face fresh and dewy with a high spf foundation or CC cream.
