Isn’t it annoying when you spend time getting ready to go out and your hair frizzes up and makeup melts off after like, two hours? Ugh! Thankfully, cosmetics companies have taken heed that some of us like to look hot even when it’s hot out, so there are some sweatproof options and tricks.
If you have problematic skin and like covering up with foundation, you can opt for a shine-absorbing primer before you put on your coverup. It’ll absorb sweat too! Just be sure it’s oil-free, though, or else it may slide right off even faster! As for your actual foundation, you may want to switch to a lighter version–or, if you still want a lot of coverage, a matte one.
As for your pucker? Lip gloss looks so fresh in the summer, but it may smudge in the heat if you’re wiping sweat off yer pretty face. A solution? Wear a lip stain, either alone or under your gloss, for a kick of color.
For your baby blues (or browns or greens or hazels!), be sure whatever liner and mascara you use is waterproof!
To prevent frizz in your mane without it feeling heavy, use a light misting of shine spray in your brush and run in through your hair. If you know you’re gonna get sweaty and move around a lot, a pony tail–or, if your hair is shorter, some strategically placed pins–will keep it out of your face.
Prone to getting greasy roots? Use a clarifying shampoo every three days in place of your regular one, and be sure to only condition your ends.
