Beat The Heat

Having oily skin usually means that summer is not my skins best friend. Living in Houston means HOT HOT and very humid summers leading to my skin getting more oily and my make up breaking down faster. So over the years I have learned what products work the best and a few tricks to keep oil to a minimum.

Summer Make up Tips

 

1. Light Oil Free Moisturizer - It is still important to keep your skin hydrated during the summer, dry skin will begin to over produce oil so a moisturized face is key. In the summer I like to use a lighter moisturizer during the day and save the heavy moisturizer for night time. I am currently loving this one from Mary Kay.

2. Face Primer - I use a primer everyday before I apply foundation. I know some feel primers do not do much but for me personally they really  help extend the life of my foundation especially during the hot summer months. My current favorite is this one from Tarte.

3. Long Wearing Foundation - During the summer I skip the dewy light coverage foundations and choose a longer lasting foundation I know wont break down easily. An old favorite of mine is Revlon Color Stay Whipped foundation.

4. Powder Foundation for Setting Powder - In the summer months I prefer to set my make up with a heavy duty powder like MAC's Studio Fix Plus Powder Foundation. You don't need much just a enough to set your T-Zone. I also like to use this as a light touch up around noon.

5.  Oil Blotting Papers - It is pretty much inevitable that my face will get a little oily during the day so in order to keep this to a minimum I use blotting papers. I usually do a light touch up of powder during lunch but before this I use blotting papers to absorb any oil that might be present. This gives a nice clean surface for my touch ups. These blotting papers from E.L.F. cosmetics are inexpensive at $1 and do the job perfectly.
