Lantei Loves: Summer makeup tips

Putting on makeup should always be fun. I especially enjoy playing around with it to match my look for the day and also to bring out my favourite facial features. However, the summer heat and humidity makes putting on makeup a dread, because I don't want to walk around with a melting and shiny face.
 
So I thought to share some summer makeup tips.
 
It is always advisable to keep your makeup on the light side during this time of the year.
 
Moisturiser
 
Before you apply moisturiser, wash your face with a gentle facial cleanser. Then apply a light facial moisturiser with an SPF of 15 or higher to keep your skin protected from the harsh summer rays.
 
Base
 
Skip base entirely and stick to concealer. Covering up shadows, spots, or blemishes with just concealer means you won't have to worry about melting makeup along with shine.
Eyeliner
 
Eyeliner often smudges very easily in the heat and humidity. If you must line your eyes, use eye defining powder rather than pencil or liquid liner. With the tip of a very small slanted brush, apply dark shadow in a thin line to define your lash line.
 
Eye shadow
 
Eye shadows crease and melt with perspiration, heat and humidity. If you want to wear eye shadow, make sure to apply a primer first to keep your shadow in place. Also choose light eye shadow colors that are close to your skin tone.
 
Mascara
 
Make sure to use a waterproof mascara. Use brown-black rather than jet black and only apply one coat. Use mascara only on your top lashes for a natural look.
 
Lipbalm
 
Skip the lipstick because it tends to get sticky and choose a light lipgloss or tinted lip balm instead. Lip conditioners are a fantastic choice for summer, providing sun protection as well as hint of color and gloss. If you opt for lipstick, try the long lasting smooth finish, semi-matte IMAN luxury lipsticks. I personally love the IMAN Luxury Lip Stain, it goes well with different outfits.
 
 
Last but not least, to avoid damaging your skin remove makeup before you go to bed. You can use a makeup remover, facial cleanser, cold cream or toner to cleanse your skin and make sure it's free of makeup.
