The biggest challenge I find during the summer season is keeping my makeup looking fresh and not melting off my face! I attend a lot of weekend BBQ’s and even though they are usually in the late afternoons, it can still be quite hot at that time.
So I’ve got a few tips that have worked for me and it won’t break the bank. First, apply a moisturizer like Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel with SPF 15, which I easily pick up at Ralphs supermarkets. This one gives my skin a nice base and something for the next few steps to hold on to. And my skin can always use as much sunscreen as possible!
After the Water Gel, I apply a face primer and then my foundation. The key after the foundation is to lock it in with setting powder. I like to apply mine with a flat sponge and I leave it on my face for about 5 minutes to set it, then just buff it into the skin with a brush. And put on a lot! Because it's translucent, it won't cake up. Believe me, it will help your makeup stay put. There are quite a few powders available, but just make sure it’s colorless.
When the weather is nice, I don’t want any extra trips and to be stuck inside shopping so picking up the essentials at Ralphs along with my weekly groceries is essential, which includes skin care, makeup and even nail polish.
As the sun sets, as much as I don’t feel right if I don’t fully wash my face and clean all the day’s makeup and dirt off, I admit, I sometimes get lazy the later in the night it gets. So in order to try and avoid that nagging feeling of, “I-have-to-get-up-and-wash-my-face,” I keep Olay Makeup Remover Wipes always at the ready. They’re fragrance-free and remove even waterproof makeup.
