Hot weather continues as we might call it a disaster. Due to the summer sweat and humidity, your makeup will become meddled and smudged immediately. This time I would like to talk about some methods to effectively apply and maintain base makeup.
Depending on form types and tools, applicability and maintenance differ greatly as for base. Of course, there is hardly a thing like perfect base. Even when one person uses one product, the effect will be different each time based on skin type and condition. Still, there are a few important tips to maintain your skin soft and moisture-less against hot weather, sweat, long rain and humidity.
First, ‘Soft’ Basic Skin Care
Summer skin may become loose due to hotness. As elasticity falls and balance between oil and water is destroyed, your skin interior will become dry. If you apply a little bit more than needed, your skin will fail to absorb or it may become smudged, destroying your base makeup. Therefore, the key is appropriate base skin care.
Firstly, you’d better choose softer cosmetics than those you use at normal times. Apply a small amount of cosmetics that are good in application and absorption many times. Apply it thoroughly to make the base moist. Also, in the mornings, use softer products. Richer cream types that you use over seasonal changes or winter will be good for night care.
Second, ‘Maintenance’ Foundation
Select your foundation. These days, cushion or pact types are preferred. In this case, many products focus on moistening rather than maintenance due to the product form. However, continued and repeated coatings will blur skin texture and tone, making the base thicker. It is wiser to select a foundation focusing on maintenance in summer or rainy season.
Although it may be different by each circumstance, if you want a light makeup, you can give up foundation stage. Apply a sub base with a little amount of moisture and tone adjustment and use a concealer where necessary in small amounts, which will make a clearer base. Also, when changing your makeup as necessary, you can use a concealer rather than coating and cover by each face area, making a much better maintained base makeup.
Based on the product type characteristics, maintenance of concealer is best. However, concealers are coated over rather than fixed on the skin, which may make more smudges. When choosing a concealer, choose a product that offers a tone that is most similar to your skin tone. Otherwise, you can choose a palette type covering 2-3 colors. Then, you can choose and adjust colors as necessary to make a color that is most similar to your skin tone.
Third, ‘Blusher and Lip Expression’ Tint Type
While there are countless colored products, tint type offers best effects in coloration and maintenance. If your blusher and color are well adjusted after your makeup, you can make your skin tone prettier.
If you have expressed your skin clearly and lightly, color your cheeks and lips properly. Overall, you will look younger while the makeup makes your face clearer.
Fourth, ‘Little by Little’ Powder
If you use a brush to apply a small amount to a necessary facial part rather than using a powder puff to apply a large amount by tapping, you can ensure much more excellent maintenance than expected. Apply a small amount of powder where necessary, such as T zone, U zone and around eyebrows where there is a large amount of oil and you can benefit from better effects. If powder is burdensome, you can choose blusher application and shading.
