Make Up for Looking Cool in the Sun.

Make Up for Looking Cool in the Sun. With temperatures forecast to hit 30% it is important to adjust your make up so you stay looking as fresh as a daisy with your make up immaculate.

Start with an oil free moisturiser. Allow this to sink in to the skin before applying anything else so that you don't start off with a damp surface.

A Face Primer can be useful in hot weather as it can help prevent your make up from melting and sliding off your face.

Then apply an oil free foundation, if you can get one with an SPF, go for the highest factor possible. Or you can try a tinted moisturiser and concealer or a BB cream only for a more minimal, natural look.

A light dust of Bronzer improves everything. Your eyes will look brighter, your skin will glow, your teeth will appear whiter and you will look healthier and full of energy even on the most draining of hot days.

Apply bronzer with a large powder brush, in sweeping strokes where the sun would naturally hit your face, forehead, cheekbones, chin, nose. Powder is best for hot weather as sticks and gels can melt and slide in the heat.

Be very cautious about using any products with a shimmer as this can make you look shiny and sweaty.

Go for a nude or natural shade of lipstick, apply several coats, blotting as you go.

Keep your eye cream for night time only. The eyelids are normally quite greasy, causing eye shadow to crease. Try and Eye Primer to increase staying power.

For Blusher try a cheek stain as this will last longer than a cream and a powder can look a little cakey.

Avoid the repeated use of face powder to blot up moisture as this will result in caked layers. Instead blot with a tissue.

Keep drinking plenty of water to keep your skin plumped up and hydrated and keep out of direct sunlight when possible to avoid the damaging and aging effects of sunlight.
