Trying to keep your makeup looking fresh during the summer heat? We suggests that you get your purse “summer ready” with sweat-proof, grooming essentials. Here are our 5 tips for your summer makeup kit:
1.Switch out powder compact for blotting paper. If space in your purse is limited, oil- absorbing sheets are a better bet to maintain a fresher face. Using a powder compact alone can leave a greasy, caked on look.
2.Carry summer makeup essentials for quick touch-ups. Even properly applied makeup in the morning can suffer from heat melt by the afternoon. For a quick touch-up, take along a cheek stain and long wear eye shadow base in color. Or to make things simpler, opt for a single, multi-tasking product (for eyes, cheeks and lip).
3.Pack hair accessories. A small zipper bag with bobby pins, tiny comb and hair bands will come in handy for a quick up-do, in case your hairstyle becomes a victim to humidity.
4.A small pack of wipes to clean makeup items. Bacteria can easily build up with the heat. Occasionally wipe lipsticks and makeup containers.
5.Keep a makeup guard handy for shopping. Trying on a beautiful white summer dress? It is especially important to have a face cover, in the dressing room, to keep makeup neatly in place and not smudged all over your neckline.
