Whether you’re heading to the beach, having a picnic in the park, or just going about your daily routine, these tips will help you keep your makeup fresh and flawless, no matter how hot it gets. So get ready to rock your summer look without worrying about your makeup melting off with SERY best makeup products.
Step 1: Follow your Regular CTM
Start with a gentle cleanser that is good at removing all the gathered impurities and is free from harsh ingredients like sulphate and alcohol so that it doesn’t strip off the natural oils. After that, moisturise your face with a hydrating cream that suits your skin, contains SPF and is oil-free, to avoid oiliness that might surface due to excessive sweat. If you have any specific skin concerns, like acne, hyperpigmentation, or dryness, consider adding serum that’s tailored to your specific needs, whether that’s brightening, hydrating, or combating breakouts.
Always remember to treat your lips while doing your CTM. Exfoliate your lips gently because lips are thin and delicate, which means it’s prone to cracking and bleeding. Use a simple DIY paste mix of sugar and lemon to protect them and moisturise by applying a balm with SPF to keep your lips hydrated and protected all day long. Following this simple technique in the right way will help in creating a smooth, even canvas for your makeup application.
Step 2: Don’t Skip Face Primer
Priming and prepping is the most essential part of your makeup, never, we repeat NEVER! Skip a face primer if you want a flawless summer base. This divine product is a secret weapon that will ensure the grip of the makeup along with lending freshness. Apply SERY Perfect Finish Face Primer, it is made with all the benefits your skin needs from a primer. A little amount goes a long way with this, its non-greasy and silky soft texture creates a smooth, even base by blurring pores, reducing the appearance of fine lines, this means that your foundation will go on smoothly, and your makeup will last longer feeling extremely lightweight. It is fortified with the remarkable benefits of Vitamin E that is rich in antioxidants which keep the skin soft & supple.
Step 3: Use Liquid Foundation and Concealer
What goes first a concealer or a foundation , is a question that arises every time. It is perfectly fine to use either of them depending on the coverage you desire for a particular makeup look. However, we will talk about liquid concealer first. Take SERY Hi-Cover Super Coverage Concealer and apply it to the areas like dark circles and pesky blemishes, and blend it well with a brush or a damped beauty blender. The product is built with a unique concoction of Sunflower Wax, Mimosa and jojoba oil to give the skin a moisturising effect. Why liquid concealer? Because it can fight the summer heat and reduce the chances of creasing caused by sweat.
Then we have a liquid foundation – the ultimate summer must-have. This baby gives you that “my skin but better” look that we all strive for. And let’s be real, who wants to wear a heavy, cakey foundation when it’s hot enough to fry an egg on the pavement? No one. That’s why, take the liquid foundation of your shade from Satin Flawless Longwear Foundation. It is made with a great formula which makes it lightweight, buildable, and an ideal product for achieving that fresh, dewy finish. The goodness of you’re favourite HYALURONIC ACID in the foundation assures the skin feels nourished throughout the day. What sets it apart from other foundations? It is packed with UAV and UVB filters that casts a protection spell against harmful rays. If you want your face to scream “I just got back from a tropical vacation.” Then mix it with your liquid highlighter, it will give a naturally glowing base.
Blend the foundation & concealer evenly by adding little by little product because hey, we’ve got to take advantage of its buildable nature!
Step 4: Don’t miss the Compact Powder
To keep your sweat proof makeup game on point, it is extremely important to add face compact powder to your makeup kit. This godsend beauty is a treasure when it comes to controlling shine. Summer heat leads to sweating and produces more oil than usual which ruins the makeup. But a quick dab of compact powder can fix everything by absorbing excess oil and making your skin look fresh with a matte finish. That’s not all! Compact powder is also used for setting the base to keep the makeup in place. After applying the foundation and concealer, light dust or a dab of powder can help lock everything in and prevent it from sliding around on your face. And because the compact powder is so finely milled, it won’t cake or settle into fine lines, giving you a smooth, flawless finish.
For long-lasting makeup in summer, use SERY Go Bare Compact Powder, this comes with the benefits of SPF-15, the real-time savior on sunny days. Dab this on the area that tends to get oily and sweaty even when you have no makeup on, this lightweight powder will give a finish and glow of foundation in no time.
Step 5: Use Water Proof Eye Makeup
You hate it when your kajal and eyeliner smudge and makes your eyes look like raccoon. We feel you. When the temperature rises and touches the sky, the sweat starts to flow down your face. But with waterproof eye makeup, you can let your eye do the talking all day! Whether you prefer a dramatic winged eyeliner, a sultry smoky eye, or just a simple swipe of kajal, there’s a waterproof formula out there to suit your needs.

The highly pigmented formula can add a frame to the eyes by sitting on the waterline as well as the upper lash line just in one swipe! Wow, such bliss *we heard you*. It is infused with the great soothing effects of Rosehip Oil, which reduces the chances of inflammation and the best part is it is suitable for contact lens users, so kajal lovers with specs, there’s no barrier between the two of you.
