Shiny summer is an ideal time to pack your stuff and travel. To completely enjoy the trip, girls need to be fresh and glowing; that’s why wearing fancy and long-lasting makeup matters. With that being said, let’s have a look at 6 effective beauty techniques that help keep your makeup look last all day. 

Long-lasting makeup layout helps girls enjoy summer trips 

Apply setting liquid or oil-free texture

Top makeup artists and dermatologists recommend using oil-free (including oils originating from palm, olive, coconut, mineral, and vegetables) products to avoid oily skin during the summertime. These products may help restrict excess oil, sebaceous glands, clogged pores, and reduce blind pimples on your skin.

Liquid cosmetics such as cream blush or highlighter are better choices since they help you get brighter and smoother skin. Powder makeup, on the other hand, may melt and cause slippage when you sweat. Illuminator highlighter - a product for oily skin - needs to be avoided during summer. Here are some highly recommended products: NARS Orgasm Liquid Highlighter, M.A.C Highlight Strobe Cream Hydratant Lumineux, Glossier Cloud Paint Gel Cream Blush, Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, etc.

Apply makeup primer

Primer not only helps your skin smoother but also strengthens the durability and improves the texture of the foundation. Primers need to be carefully selected to match skin types. People with dry skin usually need primers with hydrating ingredients such as glycerin or hyaluronic acid. Primers containing silicon are suitable for oily skin as they help restrict excess oil, cover pores and create a smooth foundation. Primers with greasy ingredients should be skipped during the hot summer.

Choose the right foundation makeup

Moisturising products can clean mould and keep your skin smooth. Fresh and healthy skin must be well-hydrated, so regardless of your skin type, using a cream moisturiser before applying foundation is essential. 

In addition, choose a foundation product with a light and thin cream layer that does not cause a feeling of tightness or heavy on the face yet keep your skin bright for hours. Here are some of the top makeup artists’ favourite summer foundation products: Dior Nude Air Serum De Teint, Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation, Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup, Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation... These product lines have pretty good long-lasting coverage that last up to 8 hours; especially, they create a thin and light finish that helps get rid of oil on your skin.

Use long-lasting and waterproof products

While doing your summer makeup, it is better to opt for matte, long-wearing and especially waterproof products. Matte lipstick and tint lipstick lines, waterproof mascara and eyeliner are excellent examples that can help you keep a fresh, confident look all day long without worrying about caking and creasing the skin.

Using water-proof make-up products helps you maintain your look longer

Apply setting powder 

This step is essential as it determines your makeup layer’s durability. Pressed powders give the foundation a matte, smooth and luminous effect. During the daytime, retouching your makeup with loose powder maintains a lightweight foundation regardless of how many times you apply the powder.

Use makeup setting spray 

Setting spray helps mattify shine and infuse you with a glowing look. It is better to use spray both before and after the foundation to guarantee your foundation stays on and to help your makeup be flawless in the blink of an eye. Setting spray also helps avoid mould or dryness, and gives your skin a flawless finish.

Setting spray should be the last step in your make-up process
