We have listed 12 classic beauty errors for you to conquer that powerful skin that lasts all night. Check out the tips!
1ST MAKEUP MISTAKE: FORGETTING TO CLEAN YOUR SKIN
Very clean skin is the secret of makeup durability, whether in winter or summer. Remember: placing layers of product on a dirty surface tends to decrease adhesion and, consequently, duration. Use a soap before starting and finish with a tonic or micellar water on the face’s oily areas.
2ND MAKEUP ERROR: SKIP THE HYDRATION OF THE FACE
Of course, warmer temperatures mean more oil and sweat, which we don’t want in make-up. Moisturizing the skin is not about durability but about the finish to prevent cracking. So use is essential! Choose dry, oil-free products. The use of a moisturizing primer can also be a solution.
3RD MAKEUP ERROR: DON’T BET ON THE RIGHT SUNSCREEN
The sunscreen should be part of the routine, especially in the summer, as the skin is more prone to burns due to the greater sunlight incidence. Opt for filters with an aqueous, fluid, or liquid texture that is less susceptible to crumbling.
4TH MAKEUP ERROR: DO NOT USE THE PRIMER
The primer prepares the skin to receive the products that will come next, closing the pores and bringing a beautiful texture. In this way, this item increases the durability and fixation of both previous and future products. In case of oily skin, bet on formulas with a gel finish.
5TH MAKEUP ERROR: APPLY THE PRODUCTS WITHOUT WAITING TO DRY
Allow the products to dry before applying a new layer. In this case, the rush will decrease the effectiveness and fixation of each item on the face.
6TH MAKEUP ERROR: CHOOSING THE WRONG FOUNDATION FOR YOUR SKIN
Choose the ideal foundation for your skin type to avoid an oily or cracked appearance. If you have oily skin, opt for products with a matte finish and drier in the summer. But don’t forget to use a moisturizer first, okay? Who has dry and mixed skin can bet on velvety texture and glow.
7TH MAKEUP ERROR: AVOID CREAMY PRODUCTS
It is common to be afraid to use creamy products in the summer, but they can be the solution! Unlike them, the powder ends up leaving a cracked appearance and, therefore, creams tend to last longer. The trick is to always seal the skin afterward with a compact powder.
8TH MAKEUP ERROR: FAILING TO SEAL THE SKIN WITH POWDER
Do not forget to seal the skin with a loose or compact translucent powder, especially in the T zone or with greater oil production. This product will prevent the makeup from “melting” with the heat.
9TH MAKEUP ERROR: IGNORE MATTE LIPSTICK
Matte lipstick has greater durability, so it is worth betting on this product in the summer. Don’t forget to moisturize your lips first, okay?
10TH MAKEUP ERROR: DO NOT OPT FOR LONG-LASTING PRODUCTS
Long-lasting products are your best friends in summer! Prefer waterproof or 24-hour items, being the most resistant possible.
11TH MAKEUP ERROR: DO NOT FINISH WITH MAKEUP FIXER
As the name says, the makeup fixer will increase the durability of products on the skin, being essential in the summer. Opt for specific mists for this purpose or in the thermal water to fulfill this role. Sneeze in the face a few minutes after finishing and let it dry.
12TH MAKEUP ERROR: EXAGGERATING PRODUCTS
The greater the number of layers, the shorter the durability of the products on the skin. Simple is more, ok? Remember that the fashion of no makeup is still on the rise!
