How to choose a foundation for the summer?
Switch to lighter yet moisture resistant foundations. In the summer I mainly use BB and CC creams. Besides the toning effect, they have a high SPF, moisturize, contain vitamins and antioxidants. Many girls complain that BB creams disappear from the face in just a couple of hours, but the truth is that the base for preserving any skin tone in the heat is the key. It mattes and connects all subsequent layers of the make-up. Now I use a primer with hyaluronic acid Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance. Favorite tones for summer are Erborian's Perfect Radiance CC Cream (I use it myself) and Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Foundation by Urban Decay (my favorite at work).
If a girl has problem skin, is it worth using powder in the summer?
You can use a light loose powder to set makeup. Look for the best at Temptu, Inglot and Sensai. But if the face is sweating, then it is better to remove excess moisture and sebum with special matting napkins.
How to find a tanned skin foundation?
Thanks to a special formula, CC and BB creams adapt themselves to the skin color. The only thing you need to pay attention to is the gradation of light / medium / dark shades depending on the intensity of the tan.
What are the means to hide imperfections in the heat?
It is better to hide imperfections with moisture-resistant pigmented correctors (when it comes to small areas of the skin). To mask redness (spider veins, rashes), apply a thin layer of corrector with green pigment under the foundation.
To mask breakouts and minor blemishes, I use Studio Skin 24 Hour Waterproof Concealer from Smashbox and Temptu, which are silicone-based. I apply concealer from Charlotte Tillbury under my eyes.
Is beach makeup appropriate?
On the beach, BB or CC creams with high SPF and lip balm (again with sun protection and light pigment) are very appropriate - all this will beautifully emphasize the tan. I use Biologique Recherche Bio Kiss Lip Balm, it moisturizes well and protects lips from harmful environmental influences.
Do not forget to comb your eyebrows carefully: there are now a lot of waterproof products - your efforts will not go away.
How to apply bronzer correctly so that there are no red spots on the skin?
Bronzers create a natural tanning effect, are applied to the prominent parts of the face and are available in different shades. If your skin is cold (pink), then gold (orange) bronzer will look like a foreign stain on it. Hence, opt for colder bronzer shades. And vice versa: to a warm skin tone - a "warm" bronzer color. It is important to blend the product well so that there are no clear transitions on the skin.
How to prepare your skin for summer makeup?
Good cleansing first, then moisturizing. After the moisturizer is well absorbed into the skin, apply the foundation! If there is redness, then use a color-leveling base - it is usually slightly shiny and has a greenish or pinkish undertone. I love Charlotte Tillbury Magic Cream. Smashbox and Shu Uemura bases smooth the relief well, visually reduce pores and matte.
What are the features of summer makeup for aging skin?
Mostly in preparation. Before doing makeup, it is better to apply an anti-aging lifting serum on aging skin. Plus, I advise you not to use powder at all, so as not to highlight wrinkles.
How to highlight a tan with makeup?
The tan is accentuated by bronze or golden shadows (ideal for long-lasting shadows in a stick), fresh blush (you can apply Becca pigment on the lips and cheeks) and a light highlighter on the protruding parts of the face.
Which summer makeup products should have an SPF factor?
It is desirable that, in addition to the foundation, the base under the tone should have an SPF factor. I also recommend using lip balms and lipsticks with UV protection.
What SPF factor should a foundation have for a vacation cosmetic bag?
SPF 20 is the minimum. But it all depends on the natural pigment of the skin. The lighter it is, the more protection should be.
What is the best way to make arrows in the heat?
I love the Tom Ford liner - it doesn't "leak" at all. But now, on the contrary, pencil arrows without a clear outline are relevant. MAC has a very long-wearing black pencil - Pro Longwear Eye Liner in Definitely Black. Plus, the super-resistant German Posh pencils last up to 18 hours.
What should be the SPF of a foundation for a city dweller?
Degrees of protection against UV rays vary from 2 to 100. The best option for a city dweller is SPF 30. If the degree of protection is higher, then the foundation will be denser, and not everyone will like it.

How to choose a summer foundation for oily skin? Many girls, after using any tone, have an oily sheen
Choose a tone, primer or moisturizer with a mattifying effect. The foundation itself should not shine - otherwise the matte effect of any primer will come to naught. I often use Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone by MAC

Can I use last year's foundation in the summer?
You can use the foundation for three years after opening. This is the official expiration date, there is no need to be afraid that something will happen to the product. Do not store the product in the heat or in the bathroom, where there are constant changes in temperature. It is best to choose a dry place, not in direct sunlight.
How to apply foundation so that it does not emphasize flaking?
If the skin is dehydrated, all products are more difficult to apply, they can accentuate peeling. In this case, I use a wet beauty blender and drip a drop of oil onto it.
It allows the instrument to distribute the tone evenly over the skin and improve glide.
The same scheme is good if you are applying a thick foundation but want it to look weightless on your skin.

Can I use foundation on the beach?
In summer, sweating and sebaceous secretion increase. Sebum, mixing with dust, dirt and keratinized particles, clogs the pores: blackheads and inflammatory elements are formed. Do not "torture" the skin with tonal means. The pigment clogs the pores even more. It is better to take wet wipes with an antiseptic effect to the beach and periodically wipe your face, remembering to renew the product with SPF after that.
If there is absolutely nothing without a base, give preference to CC or BB-cream with a UV factor and a mark "non-comedogenic" (they have less coloring pigment). But do not forget that they also need to be periodically renewed, completely rinsing off the product.

How to avoid rolling off the tone on the skin?
The tone can slip if you have not properly prepared the skin for makeup. There is a fat layer on it, keratinized particles, you used a base with one chemical formula, and apply the tone with a different formula. Another reason is that the skin is waterlogged. This happens if you first apply moisturizer, then base and on top of a dense tone.
To prevent the tone from slipping, properly cleanse the skin and prepare it for makeup: foam, toner, then primer (suitable for your skin type) and tone.

How to choose a highlighter for the summer?
Highlighters come in different shades. Warm - peach, gold, cold - silver, white. If you are back from hot countries, a warm shade will accentuate your tan. A cold shade only for snow white - it will look gray on dark skin.
Some girls apply the highlighter in such a way that their face shines like a pancake. Only radiant powder can be actively used - apply to the T-zone, cheekbones, nose. If you don't have enough shine, add, with a bare touch, a highlighter on the convex part of the cheekbone. An important rule of thumb: if you have a large nose or a hump, a highlighter in this area will highlight what you are trying to hide.

What are the trends in summer makeup now?
One of my favorite trends is duochrome highlighters. They look very interesting on the skin, but are suitable, perhaps, only for courageous girls. For example, I can easily go outside with a highlighter that will glare with a blue or purple tint, but I have fair skin and a cool color type. On girls with a warm color type, such shades can look dirty.
Turquoise shades in makeup are also relevant; eyebrows combed up; kissed lips effect; all kinds of arrows; eyelashes "spider legs".
Basic trend makeup - illuminated skin and natural blush. The latter can be done with lipstick. Smile and look in the mirror: divide the "apples" of the cheeks into two parts, and into the one that is closer to the temples, and apply the product.
How do I apply turquoise eyeshadow without looking weird?
When it comes to turquoise eyeshadow all over the eyelid, I personally still have associations with the barmaid from the 90s, especially when combined with hot pink lips. But this summer, such shades are in trend again - I advise you to emphasize the upper eyelid with a small turquoise arrow. It is better to be careful with the lower eyelid, because such a shade can create the effect of sore eyes.
For the perfect turquoise shade, head to Urban Decay (read more about the brand here) - they have very rich and long-lasting pencils, thanks to which the need for an eyeshadow palette with such vibrant colors will disappear by itself.
Who is the trendy beige smoky suit for?
An interesting trend this summer - unusual beige and brown shades of eyeshadows, giving a modern, slightly "painful" look. They are, of course, not suitable for everyone: there are girls with a cosmic non-standard appearance on whom such shadows will look great. And if you go to work every day, say, to the bank, you are unlikely to like this effect - in this case, the shades should be more universal.
How to create the effect of glowing skin from within?
Delicate shine is now achieved not so much by highlighters as by primers. My favorite is the highlight from Becca. It creates the effect of a moist, radiant complexion that will glow even when applied over the top. This makeup trend will last for a long time - feel free to try it, but for girls with oily skin, I would advise to refrain from extra shine.
How to apply glitter to skin and eyelashes correctly?
Eyelash glitter is one of the most active trends! More suitable for a party, but you need to be careful with it - you can get conjunctivitis. Stick the glitter on a damp gloss or oil, or better buy false eyelashes with glitter already pasted on. But in no case apply glue to your own eyelashes - otherwise you will be left without them.
An alternative to glitter is rhinestones. A trend that fits into both New Year's and hot summer days. You can use it in everyday life, but use literally a little bit of rhinestone - no more than two or three. You can glue them on a special glue for skin and eyelashes.
I really like it when there are several rhinestones on the lower eyelid, you can even stick one in the middle of the eyelid. And if you make shaded smoky eyes and draw a line with rhinestones to the temple, the look will visually be more wide open.
What shades of lipsticks are relevant in the summer?
Red is a stable classic, but every year the hue and saturation change. I love red lipsticks in rich Ferrari colors, cherry and neon shades.
I believe that red lipstick saves any image, even if you are absolutely not wearing makeup, you can become a beauty in a second. Always carry with you in your purse, in mine - Sephora Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in shade 01.
Another trendy color is rose gold. It can be applied to the eyes and lips with just one product. For example, lipstick - similar shades are found in Urban Decay (Love Light) and Bobbi Brown (Tiger Lily). Shadows of this shade can also be universal - apply on the lips, and go over with lip balm on top.
The only thing is that because of the excessive monotony, the face turns out to be "empty", so add a little saturation either to the lips or to the eyes.

What products to use for long-lasting eyebrow makeup?
Brow Guru by Sinsation Cosmetics is the most durable eyebrow treatment ever. You can go to the gym, take a shower and even wash your face with it - if you don't have oil alcohol or a two-phase cleanser on hand, it will stay in place. Possesses durability up to two days. Apply with a flat, beveled brush - it helps to create the desired shape and natural color.
How to fix a sloppy contouring?
If, instead of gentle contouring, you have rough strokes on your face, you do not need to rinse off your makeup. Take a highlighting base (such as Estee Lauder Victoria Beckham's Morning Aura Illuminating Crème), apply it to your hand and transfer to a clean brush. Then, with quick movements, "stretch" the dark stripes on the face. If you think this is not working well, mix the primer with a drop of foundation. You can walk on top with your fingers so that a large amount of the product does not remain on the skin. The result is competent sculpting, moisturizing and natural effect.
Can you always use waterproof mascara in summer?
Waterproof formulas are designed for special occasions, so you shouldn't use them all the time. Otherwise, the eyelashes will become drier and fall out. When the waterproof components dry, moisture is taken from the hairs, while the eyelashes will not be able to "breathe" during the day.
If you do not completely wash off the waterproof mascara, then this will further aggravate the situation, so use it only as a last resort and use special products for cleaning.
How to fix shadows so they don't smudge during the day?
Use matte eyeshadows (milky or slightly pink) or creamy waterproof eyeliner as a base. There are similar ones in the Color Tattoo 24 Hours line from Maybelline. They fix shadows better than any base. They can be applied to the upper eyelid under the eyebrow and proceed with the main eye makeup.
Another favorite is Inglot's # 94 AMC Liner. She has a magical shimmery shade of "champagne", which, if necessary, is covered with another color. I only apply it on the upper eyelid as a substrate - the shadows do not roll.
What if the tone floats?
If the tone "floated", dry the skin with a matting napkin or dry cotton pad and apply foundation on top. The durability of the makeup directly depends on the quality of the base.
For evening events - only waterproof foundation. For example, Shiseido's Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation. It is liquid but mattifying. Estée Lauder has many foundations marked "Waterproof".
I do not advise you to correct the tone with powder throughout the day. Under the oily layer, the skin does not breathe and begins to actively produce sebum. It is important that the foundation is initially durable.
