Independent make-up artist Elena Markova told why it is impossible to make "Napoleon" from a primer, controller and powder, use cream-based products and how to correct makeup correctly.

“In the heat, our body reacts to the active sun with strong perspiration in order to cool the body. But this function has a downside - the makeup on the face holds very poorly. I'll tell you what is worth and what not to do when it's hot outside."
Mistake # 1: all the best at once
Layering makeup is the most common mistake in summer. Many still fix each layer with a spray. This cannot be done! Thus, you "put on" a mask on your face that does not allow the skin to breathe. In such conditions, the sebaceous glands begin to work even more actively - the pores become clogged, rashes and inflammation appear.
Mistake # 2: using talcum powder
Talc is the cheapest ingredient to provide a matte effect in makeup. But on the face, mixing with sebum and coloring pigments, it clogs the pores, provoking the formation of blackheads.
Mistake # 3: using cream blush, concealer, highlighter
Cream-based products are good for cold weather and winter. But for the summer, they are completely unsuitable. Products with a creamy texture in the summer "flow away" from the face, even with a good fixative.
Mistake # 4: fixing makeup with dry products
Everything is simple here. Dry food under active sun is a common cause of moisture loss from the skin. Because of this, peeling is formed, and this makeup emphasizes them, and in addition all the creases and wrinkles.
Mistake # 5: using wax-based mascara
The wax melts easily when the temperature rises, and the pigment melts easily from the production of fat. In the summer, give preference to silicone-based products. The same story with non-locking pencils. Don't use them in hot weather.
Mistake # 6: mixing long lasting lipstick and shimmery gloss
These two products are in conflict with each other. Neither winter nor summer can they be used together.
Mistake # 7: incorrect makeup correction
The procedure for correcting makeup is as follows: first, remove excess oil from the skin with special napkins and only then apply a layer of powder. Returning to the fixing spray - try to use it no more than twice a day: in the morning and in the middle of the day.
