1. Use a primer

Love it or hate it, this is a MUST during summer. Primers not only prep your skin for foundation or whatever base you're putting on, it helps hold it in place, too.

2. Build your makeup in layers

While lightweight is the way to go during warmer months, if you love a full coverage look, build your makeup in ~layers~ to avoid a cakey finish. For example, put black eyeshadow on top of your liquid or gel liner; or use a tinted brow gel over your kilay; or even apply two or three layers of your go-to lipstick!

3. Use a mattifying makeup spray

When your whole face is done, go in with a mattifying makeup spray to lock your makeup in place. But don't use too much, though! You might end up doing more harm to your skin.

4. Gently blot your face

Now that your makeup is flawless, don't panic if you break a sweat or suddenly start getting oily in your T-zone! Just get a piece of tissue or a blotting sheet and gentlywe repeat, GENTLYdab on the areas you want to remove shine from. If you use "wiping" motions, you'll just be swiping your makeup aroundand that's never a pretty look.
