9 Secrets To A Long-Lasting, Waterproof Makeup Look Without Using Waterproof Products

1. Exfoliate

 

Before getting down to business, we need to address how important it is to take care of your face in general. Our skin sheds its outer layer every month. Flaky skin will gradually build up if you don’t exfoliate as recommended. As a result, your skin will be prone to wrinkles and dryness, making it hard for makeup products to stay on your skin. Most dermatologists advise that it’s best to exfoliate your skin twice or three times a week. This extra step will leave a flawless canvas for the rest of your makeup look.

 

2. Always Use A Primer

 

Don’t think twice about using a primer before applying foundation. Beyond keeping your makeup intact by reducing oil production, a primer layer also protects your skin from layers and layers of makeup that you will apply later. The primer will help smoothen and refine your skin texture with exfoliation. Opt for a primer with SPF, especially on hot summer days, to shield yourself from the UV rays if you want to amp up your game.

 

3. Stains, Tints, Or Creams Over Powders

 

Sometimes, powders can be a bad idea on hot and humid days. This is because powder products can quickly crumble and turn cakey. In contrast, tints, stains, or creams have a much longer, more substantial staying power. Instead of just sitting on top like powders, cream formulas can melt into your skin. Moreover, tint or stain blushes can give you a natural glowing look.

 

4. Keep It Light

 

Much like seasonal clothes, dermatologists have recommended that you should consider getting a set of makeup products or adopting an exclusive makeup routine for the summer. That said, switch your heavy foundations and concealers for much lighter products like BB cream, CC cream, or tinted moisturizer during hot summer days.

5. Dab Dab Dab!

 

A good makeup sponge can help buff makeup into your skin for a longer-lasting effect. So take your time when using a sponge, don’t rush into dragging or sweeping.

 

6. Try Makeup Sealant

Even if you don’t have every waterproof makeup product in your vanity, makeup sealant can magically turn all of them waterproof. You can use it for lipstick, eyeshadows, brow color, and even brush for completely water-safe wear. Make sure to wash your face and brushes with an oil-based cleanser, as regular soap simply won’t wash away this super makeup sealant.

 

7. Set With A Setting Powder

 

Setting your face with a setting powder is the final trick in any makeup routine. It keeps your base and foundation in place and seals your pristine makeup look throughout the day. After you’ve finished applying your foundation and concealer, start baking by dabbing on setting powder and then dusting it off after letting it sit for a few minutes.

 

8. Blot The Excess Oil

 

Aside from setting powder, always keep blotting paper in your purse at all times. When your makeup becomes shiny or oily during the day and reapplying a coat of powder only makes it worse, blotting paper is a cheap, simple way to reduce excess oil without budging the base.

 

9. Spray To Seal Your Look

 

Setting spray is designed to prolong the lifespan of your look. So while you may not own every waterproof product, a good setting spray is one item you should splurge on immediately. Before spraying, shake well to mix all the ingredients and start to spray a few spritzes from an arm’s length. For a full-face coverage, spray in X formation while T formation will lock oil production of the T-zone.
