Ladies, summer has arrived! Now that the temperatures are turning up, we at EGG’s styling know better than anyone how hard it can be to keep your makeup from melting off your face. But have no fear; we’re here to give you some pointers on how to keep your makeup looking fresh and neat in the summer heat.

Let’s face it: in the summer, we all sweat a lot more, whether you’re poolside or stuck inside working. In order to keep our makeup from sliding around our face all day, remember that less is more. Find a light moisturizer with SPF that allows your skin to breathe but keeps you hydrated and protected. If you plan on wearing face makeup, we HIGHLY recommend using a primer before-hand to prep your skin. This will make your skin tone more even and help keep your makeup in place.

As we stated before, keeping things simple is the best way to go in the summer months. If you want to wear makeup, use light products that won’t weigh your skin down or clog your pores. A cream blush will last longer in the heat and look and feel more natural on your cheeks. You can skip bronzer and let the sun give you a natural glow. Keep your brows and eyes light, with a swipe of waterproof mascara and a thick long-lasting eyebrow gel to help your makeup last all day. Finally, finish off with a setting spray to lock your look in.

The best thing you can do for your skin in the summer is keep it as natural as possible. Let your inner beauty shine through! Remember to always do what makes you comfortable, and if that means wearing makeup, then go for it! Just use products that are healthy for your skin. Whatever you do this summer, remember to stay cool and stay beautiful!
