Before applying make-up use a good brand of sunscreen lotion having at least a SPF of 15. Most moisturizers have in¬built SPF content. Applying a good sunscreen before applying moisturizer is a must.
Wash your face often with a good, soap-free preparation. Avoid oil-based foundations as they are prone to more dirt, which makes your skin oily. You should also avoid heavy make-up in summer. There is a huge variety of good water-based products on the market.
Dabbing powder helps you by reducing the oily look of your shiny face. For others, apply on your T -zones. During the summer drink plenty of water and maintain an easy diet by replacing spicy and oil food with lots of fruits and salads.
Use a creamy lipstick during the summer. You can reserve the darker shades for evening. Glossy light ones are preferable for those nude looks.
Use a Water-proof eyeliner. This will help avoid smudges. Use a powder eye shadow not cream-based.
Before using blush or mascara, use adusting of powder for absorbing oils in foundation and also preventing discoloration or streaking. By applying powder before mascara your lashes will look thicker and won't smudge.
