6. Never Forget Your Primer

Whether you are going for a subtle daytime look or an intense dramatic makeup look, wearing a primer underneath your makeup will provide you multiple benefits. Wearing face and eye primers are one of the top makeup tips to prevent your makeup from melting off your skin. Don’t worry as adding another layer to your skin is not counterproductive. Your primer will create an excellent base for the whole makeup to last long by locking it and preventing melting. It’s important to prime your T-zone if your sweat too often or your skin is excessively oily. Apply in a very good fashion, on your T-zone, besides your nose and on your chin the primer and this will help your foundation and concealer to stay on more hours. And the added benefit of applying primer is that it helps your next layer of BB or CC cream to glide on effortlessly. And you would also require only a small amount of the product. While choosing a primer during summers, it is best to pick a formula which doesn’t illuminate or make your skin too dewy. Choose something which gives a matte and natural finish.

7. Ice It

This trick is loved by many makeup and skin care experts. Grab a fresh ice cube and start gently slathering it on your entire face area, leaving the delicate under eye area. Gently massage the ice cube without putting too much pressure as the coldness of the ice cube might irritate the capillaries in the skin. So, remember to work with a light hand for good 2 seconds and then remove it. Then, take a clean towel, pat dry your skin, and then start applying your favorite makeup. This trick will cool down your skin, closing up your large pores and prevent your makeup melt less outside!
