How to Keep Makeup on All Day During Summer

Happy Independence Day!! Cookouts, parties, and firework shows!! We at UnitWise know you want to get back to your family, but we wanted to share some quick tips for sweat-proofing your makeup. Follow these five tips for keeping you fresh from the morning parade to nighttime fireworks.

1. Primer

Before applying your usual concealer and foundation take the time to use an oil-free primer. This will set your foundation making it last longer and preventing any face-melting scenario.

2. Foundation

Use a damp blending sponge to apply foundation lightly. Thick coats of a foundation will cause you to look oily over the course of the day. Remember the less you put on, the less there will be to slide or melt off. Focus on concealing only the inner, deep-set part of your eyes and any problem areas.

3. Eyeshadow

Over the top glam is perfect for nights out with friends, but during summer cookouts try applying less eyeshadow for a more healthy radiance. Avoid cream eyeshadow which can crease in the heat and humidity. Use a damp brush for applying minimal eyeshadow powder.

4. Mascara

When selecting your mascara for the day go for a waterproof formula, or if you have sensitive eyes look for a weatherproof formula. Liquid eyeliners will also not smudge as an oil-based pencil will. So you can enjoy your activities outside with confidence without the worry of looking like a raccoon.

5. Blotting

Before leaving the house make sure to bring extra powder to touch up your foundation. Also, blotting papers is an excellent way to whisk away any sweat and oil without adding more product. Adding more layers can build up over the day making your face appear cakey. Keep oil blotting sheets in your purse to quickly dab over your face to soak up excess oil without messing up your makeup.
