In the summer, it tends to get hot and humid, and your makeup can't help but melt off! That's why base products are so important. You need to prep your face to last through those hot days, but also keep it lightweight so your skin won't feel tempted to sweat so much. But it can be difficult to figure out what works and what doesn't, so we've asked K-beauty blogger Ammarah (@ammarahblog) for her advice.
She says: "As summer is here, I think it’s a perfect time for me to introduce some of my favorite base products to you guys. Most of the products I am introducing today may be holy grails for many of you, but I will also be sharing some new great makeup products that you need to try out if you haven't already!
I will be focusing more on lightweight base products which provide plenty of coverage, are long-lasting, and work well in hot and humid weather even with a mask on! Here are some of my favorite skin prep product recommendations."
For makeup bases, I would say to go for products that address your skin concerns rather than ones that cover up everything on your face, since this can later cause skin problems.
I've learned a lot from my skincare journey, and the biggest takeaway was that doing proper skincare before applying makeup is important! But don’t grease your face with the moisturizer because it can have an adverse effect on your makeup and, when removing excess oil from your face, make sure to use tissue paper gently on the skin.
Also, always work in thin layers and only add coverage to the areas where it is needed. Last but not least, don’t ever skip your SPF even if your base product has SPF in it. I hope you liked my base picks for the summer and spotted some new favorites as well!
