Tips and techniques for summer – proof makeup
Well, it’s here, Summertime has arrived! That means your makeup routine will need to be changed up for your clients. Growing up in Philadelphia, I know a thing or two about humidity. Let me just tell you, it is not my friend. When you walk outside, the dampness hugs you like a blanket. Which is precisely the reason why I moved to the desert in Las Vegas! No matter what climate you live in, I’m going to help break down some products for a sweat proof, smudge proof makeup application. Your clients will love you forever!
Skin Prep: In every makeup application, no matter where you live, skin prep is the most important part of your makeup. You will always struggle with staying power unless you properly prepare the skin. I prefer to start with a micellar water all over the face. This removes makeup, dirt or debris and tones the skin. If they have a little texture, I find a light exfoliant helps before laying down foundation. This will get rid of any dead skin cells on the surface and help eliminate excess oil. I love using either exfoliating wipes or pads. I then top it off with a little hydration spray and we’re ready to rock! If your clients have super sensitive skin, I will skip the exfoliant and just use a micellar water. You can also use a setting spray before applying foundation to really lock it in.
