Guest Post: LolaStarHearts Summertime Tips


Lola is a 22-year-old PR student and beauty blogger from London. She blogs mainly about skincare, with a bit of makeup thrown in for good measure. You can check out her blog, LolaStarHearts here and also find her on Twitter here.





I hate summer. I know, I shouldn’t say that. But summer in England either consists of rain or a sticky, dry, humid heat. I can handle it anywhere else, but when it gets hot here it’s almost unbearable. Aside from the sweat patches that make me look like I’ve doused my clothes in water, my makeup is a huge problem in the heat.

It’s either sliding off of my face, smudging, or caking up – which obviously isn’t desirable, so here are my tips for keeping your face on during the heat.
PRIME 
 Primers are your best friends when it comes to makeup longevity. They’ll help keep it stay looking ‘fresh’ and keep it on your face longer. Moisturiser, primer, makeup. Check.
KEEP IT LIGHT 
 If you want to avoid your makeup caking then don’t cake it on. I need a full coverage foundation so I use a mineral powder, which gives me the coverage I need without being too heavy. However, BB creams and tinted moisturisers will work just as well depending on your skin. Top tip: make your own tinted moisturiser with some liquid foundation and a light moisturiser. Equal parts will give you a medium coverage, so tweak to your requirements.
LIQUIDISE 
 Grab yourself a waterproof liquid liner and ditch the kohl pencil for a while. The flick will never go out of fashion, and is much less likely to smudge than your beloved pencil. Top tip: a thin line of dark liquid liner over the lash line on your lid will give the appearance of fuller, thicker lashes.
SWEATPROOF LASHES
Waterproof mascara is a necessity. It may be a bit of a pain to remove, but at least it’ll stay in place for the whole day – no panda eyes here! Top tip: to remove your waterproof mascara apply some eye makeup remover to a face wipe and hold it over your lashes for a few seconds before wiping. The combination of the wipe and makeup remover will help budge that tough mascara with minimal drag.

GEL YOUR CHEEKS 
 Cream and gel blushers will last a lot longer on your skin without the need to reapply frequently. Avoid mineral oil based products though; they’ll clog up your pores. I use Becca Beach Tint so my blusher doesn’t end up around my jaw line.

BLOT IT 
 Blotting paper is great if you’re generally prone to shine. A decent blotting paper will get rid of the shine without smudging. I recently reviewed one here.
Most importantly, WEAR PROTECTION
Just because you can’t see some of the damage the sun is doing, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect your skin. Don’t be scared of SPF! Top tip: face mists are great to help cool you down during the heat and refresh your makeup. Pick up a mist such as Lancaster Sun Sport Multi Protection Express Mist, which contains SPF for added protection.

I hope these tips will help you now during our heat wave and perhaps when you go on holiday too!

What are your top summertime tips?
