While fall is only 241 days away (did you like how I tried making it sound like less time by adding the word ‘only’?), we still have to suffer in the blistering heat for another 240 days. And while we break out the shorts and crop tops, it’s now time to break out the makeup to cover blemishes, sunburns and to keep us looking good while we sweat it out.
But what happens when that makeup we thought was foolproof fails? You know how it goes–foundation streaks down your cheeks, raccoon eyes develop from runny mascara and eyeliner, smudged lipstick because we accidentally wiped it away… It’s so embarrassing…
Let’s stop the madness of worrying about our makeup and annoying those around us because we can’t put down the mirror or we’re constantly asking them if everything is still in place. Now it’s time for a game plan that involves an effortless look with minimal effort.
So, without further ado, here’s the recipe for a quick and easy sweatproof look:
- Apply a tinted moisturizer with SPF. This replaces the need for primer, foundation, and concealer while protecting your skin from harmful sun rays.
- Next, apply a waterproof mascara.
- And finally, add either a lip balm or stain to top it off. For the ultimate no-makeup look, choose a clear balm or stain in a natural/nude color.
Easy, right? It’ll take you less than five minutes to achieve this look, saving you time in the morning (or whenever you get ready) and leaving you feeling fresh when the heat wave is at its peak. No more rushing home to take off all of your makeup which ultimately means you can stay out longer!
