I know rainy days are officially in the Philippines but it still feels like summer. 😎🌞 And because I miss writing beauty-related posts, I’d like to share with you my current and go-to summer make up look! 🥰
Summer is the hottest season in the Philippines and the temperature could go as high as 36.6 degrees Celsius! And to be honest, I hate wearing full make up on hot summer days. It feels like my skin couldn’t breathe and my face can literally melt when the sun is up. 😥
But of course, hot weather should not be an excuse for us folks not to wear make up! Wearing make up makes me feel pretty every day so that’s why I’ll share with you my go-to make up look this summer. 😍
On hot summer days I live by these 3 principles on taking care of my skin and wearing make up:
- Night Skin Care is Important. I don’t know about you but my face tends to oil up a lot on hot weather. Nonetheless, this should not be an excuse for us not to take care of our skin. At night, I make sure to prep my skin by cleansing my face, using toner, and lastly putting moisturiser so that my face is fully prepped the next day when I apply make up. Having a good skin will make it easy for you to put your make up in the morning.
- Sunscreen is Essential. We all know that extremely hot summer weather is very dangerous to our skin because of the harsh UV rays emitted by the sun. Before applying make up, I make sure to wear sunscreen even when I only stay indoors or don’t spend much time outside under the sun. Make sure that you wear SPF 50 PA+++ sunscreen to protect your face and this will also help prepping your skin for make up!
- Let Your Skin Breathe. Like I’ve mentioned earlier, I’m not a huge fan of wearing full coverage make up and I like to let my skin breathe especially on warm humid weather. Using tinted moisturiser or light weight foundation is what I usually opt for when I apply make up during summer. Afterwards, just put on a bright and colorful blush and lipstick and you’re ready to go!
