Summer wedding makeup hacks to keep your face looking fresh

Summer wedding makeup hacks to keep your face looking fresh

Unfortunately, makeup and summer heat don't mix well. Keep your bridal makeup looking fresh, bright, and dewy with these summer wedding makeup hacks!

It's an already uncomfortable situation to wear clothes, but that's something you've got to do when stepping outside your home.


When it comes to special occasions like weddings, you have no choice but to pull yourself together for that momentous event as the bride or as a guest.


You want your makeup to last and feel comfortable throughout the long day ahead, and you don't want to fuss over the way you look while trying to enjoy it. The last thing anyone wants to do is to fix their face midway through the wedding because your mascara has run down your eyes, and your eyeliner has become a hot mess.


Here you'll find some tips on having beautiful, fuss-free makeup on a hot day.




First, apply an oil-free moisturizer or serum to your face to make sure you keep the oiliness on your face at bay but still keeping your skin hydrated. Try B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum by Drunk Elephant. This serum delivers steady hydration throughout the day, keeping the skin looking youthful and bright. 






If you're going to be outside, even briefly, you need to wear sunscreen. Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 by Supergoop! is a weightless oil-free formula that will leave your face velvety soft and won't interrupt the next step in this hot summer routine.





The next line of defense requires a primer that will help your foundation stick to. Veil Mineral Primer by Hourglass Cosmetics is a great performing primer that will extend your foundation's longevity. Not only will it make your makeup last longer, but it will even out your complexion, and minimize the appearance of pores and wrinkles.






Hot weather requires a foundation to be lightweight because, well, it's hot. The last thing you want is to feel a thick layer of foundation that may potentially get cakey and uncomfortable throughout the day. Ilia's Skin Tint SPF 40 is a light coverage serum formulated with skincare, makeup, and sun protection that dries down to a natural dewy finish. It keeps skin hydrated and plumped throughout the day. 




Need extra coverage? Spot conceal with a concealer that matches your skin tone on problem areas only. 




Concealer should cover up any imperfections like dark circles and bags. It should look like second skin and brighten up the eye area. RMS' Un-Cover Up is the perfect product to give you the needed coverage while feeling invisible.






You've probably felt a running theme of lightweight products throughout this post and you've guessed it, your blush should also be a lightweight product. Using a liquid, gel, or cream blush that can double as a stain for your lips will be the best option. Try Glossier Cloud Paints for the most natural finish you can get. With buildable coverage, if you want to intensify your cheeks' look or enjoy a barely-there wash of color.



Eyes and lips


Weddings are sentimental and a place where you might potentially start balling your eyes out. If you can forgo heavy liner, great! Settle for a neutral cream eyeshadow that will prevent creasing and some waterproof mascara. 


Keep a tinted lip balm handy to keep your lips hydrated and some blotting paper to absorb excess oil throughout the day. Don't powder as it will eventually get cakey, and that's something you don't want. 


If you apply these tips, you'll be focused on the wedding and feel confident that you look great throughout the event.
