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.
