As promised, I’m back with another segment of ‘Beat The Heat’ and this time we’re tackling colour cosmetics. Some of us love our bronzers, others can’t live without blush, and a few love their colorful eyeshadow. You’re probably avoiding all the extra products, and while that may seem like the right thing, you don’t have to skip colour cosmetics completely. You can proudly wear that shade of green or blue you adore so much! Here’s how:
Try using cheek stains or cream eyeshadows as they tend to stick onto your skin instead of just sitting on top like powders. If you like using gels (especially for those who have oilier skin) that’s another great option for the heat.
Prime your face and your eyes! Use a good eyeshadow primer like the Urban Decay Primer Pot. It’ll keep your eyeshadow in place all day.
Dab a small amount of loose powder onto your eyes or cheeks to make sure your makeup is bright throughout the day.
Dip your brush in water before applying eyeshadow for that creamy shadow sheen. The only difference? It’ll stay on much longer.
Try using as many waterproof products as possible, but make sure they work well. Quality and suitability still come first.
Those are my 5 tried and tested tips to sweat-proof your eyeshadows and colour cosmetics! I’m going to attack foundation and base makeup soon. Got any beauty-related questions or suggestions? Ask away!
