Hot and muggy summer weather can sometimes make make it difficult to keep your makeup looking fresh, especially in high humidity climates. So, we have a few tips that will help your makeup stay on longer throughout the day. If you use a cream or liquid foundation, you may want to try a our Mixology Makeup foundation during the summer months. Providing consistent oil control and good sun protection, our foundation has excellent absorption properties and holds up for hours on end, even on the most humid of days. Following up your foundation with a setting veil like Go Commando or Get Veiled, will also provide you with extra oil control and allow your foundation to stay put longer. Try using your setting powder as an oil blotter through out the day as well for excessively oily skin. You can also try our NEW setting spray Stay Put! It will help battle the summer temps and can be used as a mixing medium to foil your shadows.
If you normally apply your loose mineral foundation using a dry brush, try spritzing your flat top brush with Stay Put! for a moist application instead. You can spritz your face directly with the spray instead of the brush if you prefer. Adding Stay Put! into the application not only leaves your face feeling cleaner and refreshed afterwards, but your foundation will also have better adhesion to the skin. This damp brush technique also allows you to achieve a heavier coverage if desired.
To prevent oily lids and eye shadow creasing, simply apply some of your loose foundation as a lid primer. We are looking to re-release our PASTE Eye Primer soon!
