Avoiding Makeup Meltdown: 3 Important Tips

 Now that you have agreed to go to the afternoon baby shower to your friend’s in August, one worry up your sleeve must be that of your makeup melting away in the sweltering sun. But do not let the stress take a toll on you. Given below are three tips that can help your makeup stay and save you from a horrific makeup meltdown:
1. Keeping It Light
Get hands on a reputed brand of foundation that shall keep your skin smooth looking without looking overdone. There is no need to go in for heavy makeup like the stars at the Oscars. The main rule of makeup is that less is more! On a hot day, it is mere foolhardiness to even wear gaudy makeup and look all caked up.

2. The Matte effect
Depending on your skin type, choose an apt moisturizer that shall leave your skin hydrated. Remember the matte look is the best in the heat. There is absolutely no need to use creamy products during a hot day. You do not want to have a dripping eye shadow, right? Choose products in powder finish.
3. Go Waterproof
There is a variety of waterproof products available in the market today. Especially for mascaras, it is better to choose one that is specified as waterproof. There are no chances of smudges around your eye on a day that is humid. After all, who wants to look like a raccoon?
Abide by these subtle makeup tricks to look your beautiful self and avoid the sliding of makeup in scorching heat.
