1. Skin preparation

The first of all and essential before applying any makeup product is the preparation of your skin, since with this you can achieve a better application of makeup and improve its luminosity.

First, you have to do a facial cleansing with a suitable cleanser for your skin, removing dirt and excess oil from the skin. Next, you have to hydrate your skin with a moisturizing cream that is always appropriate for the type of skin you have and avoiding creams that have oil, since they can be a bit heavy for this season. Then apply a sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays and allow 15 minutes for it to absorb.

2. Using a primer

A primer or primer is essential to make your makeup last longer and adhere better. Depending on the type of skin you have, you can choose one primer or another. If you have dry skin, you can choose one that is moisturizing, and if, on the contrary, you have oily skin, you can buy a mattifying one to regulate shine.

Once you know what type of primer to use, we proceed to spread it over the face, trying to pay attention to the T zone and the areas where shine usually appears.

3. Waterproof makeup

So that makeup does not melt or fade due to heat or humidity, it is advisable to use waterproof makeup. Currently, there are a large number of products that are resistant to sweat. In this article we are going to give you some tips:

  • Waterproof foundation: Choose a foundation that is heat wave-proof and lightweight for long-lasting coverage. At this time it is advisable to use creamy texture foundations instead of powder ones, since powder makeup can be incompatible with sweat.

Also, you can use waterproof false eyelashes instead of using mascara and eyeliner, with this you will achieve an extraordinary look that will be long-lasting and will not smudge.
  • Long-lasting lipsticks: Use long-lasting lipsticks or lip stains to prevent fading. And a trick to increase its durability is to use a little translucent powder on the lips after painting them.
