You've finished doing your everyday makeup and continued with your day. however the Suns out and it's super humid. You're sweating around your face and start to worry about your amazing contouring and eyeliner. Need help?

So Summer has finally arrived in UK and I've noticed a few girls with patchy makeup due to sweat and the heat. I myself have experience this and trust me it's not pleasant.

Here's a few of my tips and tricks to help your makeup stay!

1 | Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion | £7-£8 | Boots
2 | Clarins HyrdaQuench Cream SPS15 | £35
3 | Smashbox Photo Ready Primer | £28
4 | Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray | £21
5 | St Ives Apricot Scrub | £4.50 | Boots

I can't not stress enough how important it is to exfoliate.

Without exfoliating : All the dead skin cells lay on top on your skin, ewww !
                                  Face looks dull in colour
                                  Dry areas are more visible
                                  Moisturisers won't sink in
                                  Foundations won't sit properly

When you exfoliate : Skin looks much brighter and healthier.
                                  Skin is a lot smoother and softer.
                                  Moisturisers are able to sink in
                                  Makeup goes on a lot smoother
                                  Makeup stays a lot longer
After cleansing your face you must always moisturise ! My favourite at the moment are Aveeno and Clarins HydraQuench. Once your moisturiser has sunk into your skin use a face primer all over and a eye primer around your eye area, especially under so you have super support for your concealers.

Once all your makeup is done, (try not to put to much, unless you're comfortable with it in the heat) you then set it with a setting spray, and loads of it. I know a lot of people are using hairsprays, this is a straight NO NO !  My all time favourite is Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. Make sure you shake the bottle before every use to combine all the ingredients. Then sprits your face at arms length and let it set/dry.

Hope this helps !

Much Love
