We’re all in for the summer fun—sun, beaches, and, of course, flaunting gram-worthy summer makeup looks. But, wearing a glam look in hot, humid weather can be a little challenging. So, selecting the right products is super important to make our makeup stay during the summertime.
Fret not! We are going to spill the best makeup tips for you in this article—from keeping your makeup sweat-proof to achieving a glowy and golden look, so you’ll look natural, fresh, and gorgeous throughout the summer heat. Let’s go!
Your best bet to achieve the perfect glam up this summer is to have your skin ready for the weather changes. And that means applying oil-free moisturizer in the morning. Using moisturizer will less likely leave your skin looking greasy, especially in the heat.
You can also opt to mix the oil-free moisturizer into your favorite foundation for a softer, sheerer look.
It’s imperative to wear sunscreen 365 days a year and all the more on hot days. Even a little bit of it, UV rays can take a toll on our skin and cause premature aging. Even under your makeup, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
Sunscreens are typically reapplied every two hours for optimum protection, especially when you’re swimming or outdoors. You can reapply it over your makeup using a sponge or sunscreen powder, which can be dusted on top of your makeup.
The summer’s sticky humidity and scorching heat can be cruel to makeup lovers—hours and hours of makeup application, then ten minutes after stepping into the sun, you’ve got greasy splotches breaking through the base. Well, a good primer is heaven-sent! Not only does primer create a smooth canvas for your makeup, but it also locks it in place. Primer goes after your moisturizer before your makeup application.
Love to swim, but scared of getting the raccoon eyes? Investing in waterproof versions of your favorite makeup products will solve this problem. A good waterproof mascara won’t run, smear, and can even handle the swimming pool. Better yet, get your eyelashes tinted to have the lashes you want without having to bother with mascara.

Matte Bronzer is a cult favorite in the summertime! Well, we can’t blame makeup lovers—it makes everything look finer due to added warmth in their faces. Apply bronzer only to the high points of your face, just where the sun naturally hits you: your nose, chin, forehead, and cheekbones. This keeps the result looking fresh and natural.
Powder blush can have a heavier, cakey effect on your summer makeup, especially as the temperature rises. It may not also help you achieve your glowing and youthful-looking goals.
For the hot weather, stains can be your best bet for longevity. You can blend a bit of cream blush on top of a gel or blush stain and create a healthy vibrance to your cheeks!
If you don’t feel like putting on a heavy matte lipstick for summer, then try on something more hydrating, called lip stains, or balms. These can coat your lips with a gorgeous sheen, add moisture, plus help the formula stay neat and clean throughout the day. And it makes much more sense in the poolside, too, than the ultra-groomed lip.
Arguably, the best piece of advice for summer makeup in Brighton or South Yarra is: less is more. Makeup tends to glide and slide a lot when it’s hot, so the best way to prevent it is to wear less of it.
Not only will this prevent your makeup from creasing and caking, but it’ll also make you feel comfortable and fresh throughout the day. If you can, just stick to a concealer and tinted moisturizer where you need it.
Summer makes the perfect time for trying our vibrant colors. More than looking summer-y, fun, vibrant colors brighten up the face and give a youthful glow to the skin.
Orange is one of the favorite hues this summer, and putting this shade only on your lips and cheeks instead of your eyes can keep the smudge and crease away. If you prefer neutral colors, you can try bright shades on just one area of your face, such as punchy blush on the apples of the cheeks.
The final step to every makeup routine, especially during summer, is to spritz on some makeup setting spray. These sprays help fight off the crease and smudge brought by sweating and make your makeup look “just applied” all day long. In addition, some makeup setting sprays work as primers and create a hydrated, even-looking canvas.
Foundation and concealer fading, blush looking heavy, and lipstick wearing off—some of the things that signal for a touch-up. Don’t let these stop you from enjoying your summer celebration.
Having purse-size products ready in your bag helps you apply makeup in Brighton or South Yarra on the go. If you have oily skin, always have with you blotting papers and dab away the excess oil before you do anything else.
Trying on different summer makeup in South Yarra and Brighton is one of the exciting things this season. But, putting on makeup can be challenging as the sweltering summer heat makes your makeup move more often.
Luckily, there are great summer makeup tips—from applying SPF every day, wearing less makeup, and finishing up with makeup setting spray, that can save the day. These tips help keep makeup disaster out of your summer fun.
