15 Tips for Keeping Your Makeup Longlasting During Hot Summer

Hi Dollies, this blog post is going to be all about the tips to improve your makeup routine during the hot and humid summer time.


  1. Makeup melts not just because of heat and sweat, but because of oil. Your skin produces more oil in the summer months, so be sure to grab an oil-preventing cleanser and blot before you apply.
  1. Try using a clay mask once a week to reduce your skin’s oil production.

  1. Apply foundation only where you need it – and if you can, skip it altogether! Especially in the summer, do not over-apply.
  2. Light, sheer coverage is best – choose a tinted moisturizer and use concealer where you need it.
  3. If you can’t skip foundation, use a primer first, and then apply the foundation with your fingertips.  This will warm it up and when you hit the summer sun, it won’t be such a shock.
  4. Set with translucent powder.

  1. Use an eye shadow primer - it helps keep your color vibrant and keep it from sliding or creasing
  2. Cream and pressed powder eyeshadows are best because they’re less likely to move.  Silicone-based are also good choices.

Cream Eyeshadows


  1. Heat up lash curler to really curl them – but do it carefully! Crimp twice: the middle and edges.
  2. Dust a translucent powder over your lashes (with eyes closed), then apply mascara.  It’ll cling to the powder and last longer, your lashes looking fuller at the same time.
  3. Water-resistant is better than waterproof, as it’s less harsh.  Test a mascara in the shower to see how it holds up to the hot water. If it passes, you’re good to go in the summer heat!

Apply mascara correctly


  1. Use a lip stain rather than a lip gloss or lipstick, it has better staying power and looks most natural.
  2. if you want to use lipstick, try applying foundation to your lips first. It will create a base and help it stay.

  1. Keep a makeup sponge in your bag: so that you can smooth away any creases that develop.  Then set the makeup with a light dusting of powder.
  2. Also keep blotting papers with you for any oil that develops – be sure to blot, not rub!
