Summer does not suit makeup well. Most of the products we usually have cannot stand really high temperatures and tend to melt or appear uneven. However, summer is no excuse to not look your best. So, here we have 10 Easy Summer Makeup Ideas & tips on how to choose makeup products in summer.
10 Easy Summer Makeup Ideas
1. Use Summer Primer
While you may be averse to putting on an extra layer of makeup in the hot days of summer, this protective coating closes your pores that reduce sweating. So you have less chance of ruining your makeup. Primers with SPF also act as sunblock, which is an essential in summer makeup.
2. Apply Dense Foundation
Pick a foundation that is waterproof and also has dense pigmentation. This helps to conceal blemishes without slathering on layers of foundation. The foundation should be creamy, not watery and has a long-lasting formula.
3. Make Sure it Blends Well
If you sweat a lot in some parts of your faces (‘T zone’ is the most common perpetrator), makeup in this part can look sparse while the rest of the face looks okay. So, it is essential that you blend your makeup well so that there is no visible line.
4. Apply Light Coat
Always use light makeup for summer because gravity will not be forgiving otherwise. As sweat loosens the makeup layers from your skin, they will tend to slide due to their own weight if you have used multiple layers of makeup. So apply a single, light coat. Silicone based formula are light and also withstands humidity well.

5. Cream-based Shadows
If you use powder shadows, you will have a bad time in summer because sweat and powder make for an unpleasant cakey appearance. So it’s time to switch to creaseless cream based shadows that will stand the test of time.
6. Keep Setting Spray Handy
A makeup setting spray is the best thing to have in your bag if you can’t carry all your products with you. It sets the makeup and unlike makeup setting powder, it works well with oily skin too.
7. Waterproof Mascara
While the cardinal rule of summer is waterproof, we cannot stress more on waterproof mascara.

8. Try Liquid Liner
A pencil is easier to apply, but this summer, brave your fear of liquid liner because it will not smudge like pencil or kohl and keeps your eyes bold and penetrating all day long. Make sure your summer eye makeup has a waterproof formula too.
9. Color Gloss Your Lips
Your lips look chapped when you are dehydrated which is understandable in hot days of summer. So tint your lips with color gloss rather than lipstick. There are plenty of good chapsticks available, but select one with high wax content or otherwise it will be sticky and runny in the sun.
