It is known to us all that our skin produces extra oil during the summer season, even if you have dry skin. Therefore, it is very important for you to take care of your skin by choosing the right moisturiser for your skin. Make sure to use an oil-free moisturizer on your face to give it the nourishment it needs. This will help your skin be less greasy even in the scorching heat. Use light-weight moisturisers so that your face can be hydrated all day long.
2. Put on some Sun Protection
Hydrating your skin during summer is important but protecting it from the sun is equally important. The harmful radiation of the sun can permanently damage your skin cells therefore, it is always advised to put on a layer of sunscreen before stepping out in the sun. Most of the time it is suggested to wear a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 or more. To ensure that your skin is properly protected from the sun, re-apply the sunscreen every two hours. Even if you are planning to use make-up make sure to apply sunscreen under your make-up. It ensures that the skin is protected from the damage that the sun can cause.

3. Invest in a Proper Make-up Primer
You will never regret investing in a proper primer. It just takes a few minutes to apply primer evenly on the skin. It is generally applied after moisturiser and sunscreen. It is the base of make-up that keeps the make-up intact and in place. They have a way to go in the summer and hold the make-up in place without making your skin heavy. A good primer can help soften your wrinkles and blur away the imperfections.
4. Apply Less Make-up
When it comes to make-up, ‘less is more’. All you need is perfection while you apply make-up. If you want to prevent your makeup from caking and creasing, then it is best to apply less make-up. It is important that your skin breathes during the summers. Using tinted concealers or moisturisers can help you get a make-up look in an instant.
5. Glam Up with Some Bronzer
To keep your look fresh and natural apply some bronzer over your make-up. It is recommended to apply bronzer on the high points of your face, where the sun hits you naturally, like forehead, chin, cheekbones and nose. Make sure that you don’t apply bronzer to every nook and corner of your face to avoid the fake and cakey look. It is advised to use powder bronzer during the summers as it is easy to apply and also it won’t slip around because of the summer heat.
6. Make Sure that Your Eyeshadow Sticks Till the End
If you want your eyeshadow to last longer then avoid using eye cream on your lids, it can break down your make-up. Instead, smoothen your eyelids with an eye primer. It minimises creasing and creates a base for the shadow to cling to it so that it can last longer. If you want your eyeshadow to last all day long, then go for a powder-based eyeshadow over the cream one.

How to Get that ‘No Make-up’ Make-up Look?
One of the most popular trends of 2021 is the ‘no make-up’ make-up look also known as minimal make-up look.

We try to follow their skincare routine and even try out the products used and recommended by these celebrities. We hover through a lot of fashion magazines and try to inculcate the diet plans of the celebrities but nothing works. It can be really frustrating that after so much effort you are still not close to getting the skin of your dreams. What do you think that celebrities do differently than most of us? The answer is simple! Make-up!
The trend of minimal make-up is getting popular these days and it is here to stay for a long time. This make-up look helps you look fresh and awake even when you don’t feel that way. Nailing the perfect minimal look can be trickier than it appears to be. You can look up in the fashion magazines and follow celeb make-up artists to get an idea about that. Here is a step by step guide to achieve that flawless ‘no make-up’ make-up look. Let’s have a look at them one by one:
1. Prepare Your Skin
This is the first step to achieving flawless skin. You need to prepare your skin for the ‘no make-up’ make-up look. Clean your skin properly using a mild cleanser or a face wash. Make sure to remove all the dirt and impurities from your skin pores. To make sure that your skin doesn’t feel tight and dry, apply a light moisturiser. It keeps your skin soft and hydrated and makes it ready for makeup.
2. Use Primer
Primer is necessary when going for the minimal makeup look. It is the easiest way to achieve a smooth base. It fills all the unnecessary pores of your skin and prepares it better for makeup. An illuminating primer can brighten your skin and make it glow from within. Investing in a good primer is a smart choice especially for the beginners.
3. Light Coverage
To get that flawless natural looking skin, go for a BB or CC cream. It hydrates your skin and makes the imperfections look beautiful. To give your skin a dewy look, apply the cream with a foundation brush or use a sponge. It is better to skip foundation and let your skin breathe.

Concealer helps you cover those baggy under eyes and the blemishes on your skin. Make sure to use a lightweight hydrating concealer as it gives a nice coverage to the dark circles and acne marks and makes your skin look fresh.
If you want to add a dimension to your face and give yourself a shadow effect then you can use a cream contour. This is not an everyday product but if you take care of your skin before and after applying makeup then you can use it regularly. If you want to enhance your facial features, then you can easily use this product.
6. Dew over Highlighter
To get the perfect ‘no make-up’ make-up look ditch your highlighter. Rather than applying the natural shimmery powder highlighter go for a dew stick. It will give your skin a dewy look and make it glow. Cream based dew sticks go a long way and help you achieve natural shine.

Blush is a woman’s best friend especially when you are trying to get that minimal make-up look. A natural blush adds to the beauty of a woman and makes your skin look gorgeous.

Having dark eyelashes is the dream of every woman. It makes the eyes look so pretty and expressive. Curl your lashes and apply brown mascara to get the natural look. You can also skip the mascara part all together if you want to have more focus on your skin.

The natural tint we get after adding lip tint is gorgeous. To achieve that “no-makeup” makeup look apply lip balms with natural pinkish hues. It is the best way to get natural looking lips. You can also apply lipstick and wipe off the extra using tissue and get the natural lips.
