Fantastico Makeup Tips For Hot Summer

Summer is full of pleasures — but melting makeup, smeared eyeliner, and super-sticky lipsticks are not among them. Let's face it — some days are way too hot to wear a lot of cosmetics. How do you keep looking good while avoiding a makeup meltdown? Whether it's for an everyday look or a special occasion, keep your makeup looking fresh and pretty in the summer heat with these tips.

Spare Time For Primer: Trust me, you will never regret spending few minutes when you see the difference in your makeup. A primer will not only create a smooth base, making whatever that goes on next much smoother, but it will also increase its longevity. Apply primer after your favorite moisturizer but before makeup. For long-lasting coverage, as well as that all-important sun protection, start your makeup routine with an SPF-infused primer. Primers are definitely the way to go in summer. They're incredibly light, they don't feel at all like a heavy, additional layer and they really help hold makeup in place.

P.S. If you don’t have primer in your makeup kit, rub ice cube on your face before applying makeup, it gives u a glow and hold makeup too.

Use Waterproof Makeup: Summer frequently means sweating, swimming etc. So don't forget to use waterproof mascara. If you are among those who find waterproof mascara clumsy and flaky, apply a topcoat of waterproof mascara over your non waterproof mascara.
Opt for liquid or gel liners instead because pencils and crayons, usually contain more oil, thus making it easier for it to budge when it comes in contact with your oils that your skin produces

Realize Less Is More: Summer is surely is right time to say no to heavy makeup. Girlies, go light go glamorous. When sun heats up, less is surely the best. Swap foundation for tinted moisturizer or brush powder foundation over the tinted moisturizer in spots where you need a little extra coverage. Go sheer, oil free and avoid over powdering.

Hola, Its Cream Time: Cream based products last longer and survive summer meltdown easily. As cream products stick to skin they adhere for a longer time. But best is the combination, when cream and powder are combined, they last the longest. So try layering your creams with a bit of powder to set it in place.
For blusher, The trick is to apply the cream blusher and then set with face powder.
For longer-lasting shadow, avoid using eye cream on your and smooth on an eye primer instead
. For all-day wearability, layer a powder over a cream. Doubling up works for liner.

Be Sun Ready: In hot summers, don’t forget bronzers. Bronzer makes your eyes look brighter, everyone looks better with a little warmth added to their skin. Applying 
bronzer 
just to the high points of your face, where the sun naturally hits you: forehead, cheekbones, chin, and nose makes you look naturally fresh.

P.S. Don’t forget the SPF for protection from sun.

Its time to go glam, with few makeup tips and have a Fantastico summer.
