What foundation won't float in the sun? How to paint your eyes in the heat? Makeup artist Tim Leo talks about these and other summer makeup secrets.

1. Skin protection
Many have noticed that the sun is becoming more and more aggressive - even without sunbathing on purpose, we begin to burn. Both in care and in decorative cosmetics there should be an SPF factor - for a decorative minimum SPF 15.
Finding such products is easy - now many brands are trying to produce cosmetics with sunscreen components. I love Inglot's base SPF 20, Studio Waterweight SPF 30, MAC, Liquid Skin SPF 15, Kiko Milano.
2. Minimum cosmetics
Anything you put on your face can “float” from the heat, so don't apply unnecessary products unnecessarily. The minimum I recommend: a light moisturizing tone, (even better - BB and CC creams), light cream shadows, a lip balm with a translucent shade.
3. Long-lasting textures for eye makeup
All products that you put on your eyes in the summer must be persistent - eyebrow pencils, cream shadows, mascara, eyeliner (if it is evening).
Add a creamy blush, highlight the cheekbones with a light creamy highlighter. Give up contouring - in the summer it is useless.
Persistent cosmetics should be washed off with special products - hydrophilic oils or a two-phase liquid for removing waterproof makeup.
4. SOS funds throughout the day
I recommend carrying absorbent wipes and a refreshing spray. First pat the skin in the T-zone with napkins to get rid of the oily sheen, then use a refreshing spray against dryness and flaking.
5. For the evening - long-lasting textures and more intense colors
Blue, blue, purple eye shadows and pencils are the trend this summer. For lips - lipsticks of orange color or electric fuchsia.
Glitter and colored mascara are still in vogue - you can safely try even blue (in addition - a pure shining tone, natural blush, lip balm).
