Makeup can be a lot to deal with. You spend hours getting ready, and then you’re out in the rain or sweating, and your makeup starts to run and migrate down your face. It’s frustrating, but we’ve got some tips that will help ensure your makeup stays put no matter what the weather is like.
Waterproof makeup step-by-step
If you’re anything like me, your makeup is either constantly running or smudging when it’s exposed to water. It can be frustrating. There are some tricks I’ve learned that make my makeup waterproof and keep it looking fresh all day long.
- Use eyelid primer before applying eyeshadow. Eyelid primer will prevent the color from fading in the crease of your eye when exposed to water or sweat for a prolonged period.
- Apply an oil-based foundation with SPF in place of powder foundation if you want more coverage on hot days where sweat may cause your face to appear shiny in photos/videos after sweating profusely at different points throughout the day.
- Use powder – Cover up any areas of skin that might get wet such as around the nose, chin, under eyes, etc. This should keep most of it from running off so easily.
- Make sure you use a good setting spray, preferably one with sunscreen built right in, since this will help protect both your skin and any product you have put
It’s not easy to make your makeup waterproof. Many products on the market claim to do so, but they don’t always work as well as you would hope.
And for those of us who do our makeup every day, it’s going to be a lot more difficult to keep your skin looking fresh. The last thing you want is for your mascara to run down your face when you’re out in the snow or rain. Luckily, there are ways that you can make sure that doesn’t happen.
The first step would be using a waterproof primer. Primers help fill pores and create a smooth canvas, so products go on evenly. It also recommends investing in setting spray as another way to ensure makeup lasts all day long.
Women know that even the best makeup has a hard time lasting through workouts or hot summer days. This is where sweatproof makeup comes in handy. Unfortunately, there are many different formulas for this type of makeup, so choosing which one will work best for you can be difficult.
Women want to look their best, whether at the office or out for a night on the town. The problem is that makeup tends to slide off as soon as you start sweating. The good news is there are now sweatproof makeup options that will last all day and keep your confidence high.
The bad news? You might have to buy a new foundation because many of these formulas only work with specific brands. The other option is looking for a product that can be layered over your current foundation. Layer this product over your regular one, blot it down with some tissue paper, then apply more of your usual makeup coverage – voila. Your skin should stay fresh and flawless even when you’re drenched in sweat.
