The Heat Proof Summer Makeup.

As much as I am craving autumn and the colder days right now, it is still quite hot here in Germany. So today I thought I would share with you my heatproof summer makeup products that I use right now. I never really wear heavy and full coverage makeup anymore. However, in the summer it's even more important to me to use light products. Nobody got time for cakey makeup that is literally melting of your face. So what are the kind of products that I use to achieve my heat proof makeup?

Embrace the dewiness. 
Firstly, embracing the dewiness is key for me. There is no point in trying to stay matte when it's over thirty degrees. So instead of fighting the glow, let's embrace it. The best way to do that is by sticking to cream products as much as possible. A cream bronzer, highlighter, and blush look much more natural, especially in the summer. Whenever I use too many powder products in the heat, a cakey mess is almost guaranteed.

Setting Sprays. 
If you take anything away from this post, then please invest in a good setting spray. It not only makes sure that your makeup lasts longer but it also takes away the powderiness of your base makeup. I always need to set my undereye concealer with a bit of powder. Using a setting spray afterwards makes sure that everything blends in seamlessly.

Ditch full coverage products. 
Nobody is perfect. So try and ditch the full coverage products. And to be honest, sometimes heavy-duty foundations just accentuate your flaws. So maybe try and go for a lighter bb or cc cream instead and just conceal the spots that you really want to have covered. Or maybe ditch the foundation all together? You got this!

  1. I've never tried setting sprays before but it's actually a great idea for the summer. Will have to get one next year and see how I get on. But I do ditch full coverage in the summer already, and put minimal products on my face anyway just as you suggest. It's the only way to go when it's too hot!

  2. Finding this post 100% relatable at the moment ;) Setting sprays and primers are key for me! I think regardless if you're wearing the most no-makeup look out there, or makeup for a girl's night out, in the summer you have to lock it all in or it will be going everywhere. I love the It-cosmetics CC cream for the summer (and all year round to be honest), too!

  9. I'm all about light coverage during all seasons of the year, but yep, especially during summer! Setting sprays are my go-to always, but they do set the skin so nicely when it's hot out. I definitely still have to set my under eyes too, otherwise my dark circles will show a bit too quickly for my taste :') but I love being dewey everywhere else!

  10. Oooh I recently had the opportunity to try the It Cosmetic CC cream and it was a dream to use. My makeup artist recommended it to me and it's definitely so great to wear for the summer time.


  11. Glowing skin is a must have all year round for me and I'm currently loving the Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Sunshine Drops as a natural alternative to bronzers on the market and find it amazing for mixing with my skincare oils, moisturisers or BB Creams! (I have acne prone skin and this doesn't clog/irritate my skin).

    You've got some great picks here and CT would be my go to as the packaging is always so pretty! x

    1. So true :) the prettiest packaging for sure!
