Beauty Tips : Sweat Proof Makeup for the Jaipur Summer

Reading Time: 5 minutes

This Summer makes sure your make up stays in place. Follow some of our quick tips to keep looking fresh and perfect all day!

Blot the Sweat Away

Many of us still carry compact powder with us throughout the day to pack on top of our face to reduce the shine. Compact powders tend to close our pores and stop sweat formation, which is a natural process for the body. Closing off pores and reapplying powder on top can cause pimples and breakouts.

Use blotting paper throughout the day to blot the sweat away, keep your make up fresh and in place all day. Below are some of our picks for the ones you can buy:

Keep it Light

Avoid using heavy and full coverage foundations in the summer. Heavy foundations will melt in the heat and form white blotches on your face throughout the day. Go for light coverage foundations which are oil-free. BB and CC creams are a good substitute. Below are some of our picks for the ones you can buy:

Switch to Creams

Powders tend to cake in the heat, form lumps on the skin and hinder flawless and smooth complexion. Try to avoid the use of powders as much as possible in your make up routine. Instead opt for lightweight crème products. You can switch to crème eyeshadows, blushes, contour and highlight. Below are some of our picks for the ones you can buy:

Moral of the Story

Our aim is to make sure you don’t turn into a raccoon at the end of your day. Avoid using dark colors or going for dark make up looks like smokey eyes, dark lips, thick kohl-rimmed eyes, dark blushes and such. Keep it light and simple. Opt for a BB cream, conceal your dark spots and blemishes, add some color to your cheeks with some crème blush. Finish off with a waterproof mascara and a light cream eyeshadow and your done for the day. Carry your favourite lipstick and blotting paper with you for any touch ups you may require.
