The sweltering heat of summer can make it frustrating for many women to wear makeup. Increased temperatures promote perspiration, which leads to running makeup and frequent cleansing of the face. It can become not only annoying to constantly fix your makeup, but also harsh on your skin to repeatedly cleanse and reapply your makeup. One could say the heat adds insult to injury by taking your lipsticks, eyeliners, concealers, and other prized cosmetics and turning them into a gooey, unsalvageable mess.
Take heart, for it is not a total lost cause. There are ways in which you can apply your makeup and maintain a fresh face all summer long. You can also take steps to protect your beloved makeup from the summer heat's grasp. Before applying any makeup, at the start of your day incorporate some skin care to your regimen. A good routine will keep you skin healthy and provide a good base for your makeup to last longer.
Take care of your makeup, too. If you want to prevent indiscernible puddles of lipstick and eye shadow at the bottom of either your cosmetic case or handbag, try using an insulated bag to tote around your makeup. And, do your best to remember not to leave your makeup kit in your vehicle or another location that will get incredibly hot during the day. When the day is done, consider tossing the bag straight into your refrigerator to return your cosmetics to their normal firmness.
