5 Summer Makeup Essentials for Everyday Use

We all have had that day when we used  foundation during summers only to find it melting due to sweat by the time we reach college/office. It was such a disaster. Foundation is something we all have to avoid using in summers. In today’s post I’ll be listing down 5 makeup essentials for summer.

1. Stick Concealer:

Since its not a good idea to use a foundation during summer, we can still use a stick concealer to cover the dark spots, under eye circle and blemishes.Stick concealers work better than the liquid concealers during summer.

2. Compact Powder:

This not only helps to set the concealer but it also gives you the required matte look. Especially if you are using a sunscreen underneath, a compact helps u to cover the greasy or oily look. It is a must have makeup product.

3. Kajal/Eye Pencil:

We all know the importance of Kajal and how it instantly gives life to our eyes. There were days I used to skip kajal and ended up looking like a cried face. Yes, this happens to me every time!!. I prefer using an eye pencil/kohl like the Maybelline Colossal Kajal or the Lakme Eyeconic one to line both my water line and upper lash line.

4. ChapStick/Lip Balms:

Choose a lip balm which has some sun protection in it. The Maybelline Baby Lips have got SPF 20 and they have a wide collection of lip balms in this range. This range also offers lip balms with a hint of color to it. So a lipstick is not necessarily required if you want just a hint of color on your lips.

5. Sunscreen & Body Lotion with SPF:

I know that its not a makeup essential, its just a skin care essential but it is a MUST have product during summer. Some of us use sunscreen on face but ignore our hands and other exposed areas. I would recommend to use a body lotion which has some sun protection to it. I use Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Body Lotion, it has an SPF of 25.

If you feel that anything else is missed out, please do let me know:)
