5 Makeup Switches To Make This Summer



With summer just around the corner, the right choices are crucial. Not just with cotton t-shirts and fruit plates but also with makeup. You may have stuck to your liquid lipsticks and high coverage foundation all winter long, but we’re sorry to report that they have no place in summer. Makeup that is too heavy, pigmented or unsuitable for the weather will only melt off and leave you oily and uncomfortable. So play it smart this summer by switching to these five makeup staples this season.

1.Cold Cream For Serum

If hot summer nights are leaving you sweaty when you hit the hay, it’s best to skip past the thick cold cream, which may only make things worse. Serum, on the other hand is just right for this season. It is lightweight and potent, excellent for day and night use.

2. Eyeliner For Kajal

Even the best eyeliners that promise long lasting, waterproof results don’t stand a chance on those sweaty days. Give them a pass for kajal instead. Unlike liquid eyeliner, kajal has a solid, waxy formula which has potential to last longer, and not just drip away at the first sign of a humid morning.

3. Power Blush For Colour Pigment

While powder blush does look lovely, it tends to fade quickly in high temperatures. Good enough reason to pick up colourful pigments for your cheeks, which are fast gaining popularity. Products like pigments and stains blend easily and sit comfortably on the skin while lasting for hours to come.

4. Foundation For BB Cream

No one enjoys the heavy, mask-like feeling of makeup on your face, especially in summer. That’s why it’s time to put away foundations and bring out BB cream. It will give natural coverage without feeling oily and weighed down.

5. Lipstick For Balm

This season, give your puckers an easy coat of colour and SPF protection with the help of lip balm. Lipsticks are great and all but they begin to feel heavy, which isn’t ideal on scorching days. Instead, lip balms protect, add shine and give a tint of colour effortlessly.
