Our make-up artist Mrs. Despoina Konstadellaki gives us advice for the ideal summer make-up

 

Tips to have the perfect summer make-up.

All women face many problems with their make-up in summer because of the heat and as you know after a short period of time the result on our face is not that flattering.

The make-up artist of Anko institute, Mrs. Despoina Konstadellaki gives us advice for the ideal summer make-up!

  1. First cleanse your face.

Make-up “melts” not only because of the heat and perspiration, but also because  of the greasiness that our skin produces, therefore, choose a facial cleanser but be careful … not aggressive but mild so that it doesn’t disturb the balance of your skin and it causes dehydration.

  1. Do not use a lot of foundation.

Ideally do not use foundation during the summer months, but if you believe that you have to, use it only when necessary in small quantities at specific areas.

  1. Wear a concealer only when it is needed.

To make our make-up brighter you can choose to use a tinted moisturizing cream and use a concealer in the areas which appear to have a problem.

  1. Use a primer before applying eye-shadows.

This way will help you to keep the intensity of your eye-shadows color on your eyes and avoid the smudging of the eye-shadows and the creation of lines especially when the primer has a silicone base. Use translucent powder on your eyelashes. By applying translucent powder on your eyelashes, the mascara will last longer without clumping. Of course there is the solution of the waterproof mascara but we do not suggest its use on a daily basis because its removal makes your eyelashes suffer.

  1. Apply lip-liner instead of lipstick.

The best choices for the summer are pencils for the lips, since their composition is based on wax and as a result it is quite stable. So, choose the pencil in the shade you like the most and fill with a moisturizing lip balm for more hydration which will offer the glow as well as the freshness a summer image commands.

  1. Take with you a cosmetic wedge or a cotton ball.

By having one of these in your bag you will be able to touch-up your make-up any time just by patting and applying it very well on the areas which are smudged. Do not add powder before removing the greasiness and perspiration from your face by patting it with a tissue. Otherwise “mud” will be created which is not an attractive final image.

Remember!!!

In summer a lot of make-up is not needed or at least it mustn’t look like we are wearing a lot.

Follow the advice and wear your best smile and it is certain that you will glow where ever you go.
