With warm weather on the rise means a new makeup routine to keep it from melting off! If you have oily/combination skin (especially in the summer) this post is for you!
I'm still on the hunt for the best affordable oil free primer, but I have used the Makeup Forever matte primer and it's perfect for the summer months (just pricey.)
Foundation: I am currently LOVING Covergirl's new Trublend Matte foundation. It's super affordable, comes in 40 shades and keeps my makeup looking great in hot weather! I recently put it to the test when I wore it to a wedding that turned out to be 85 degrees during the daytime. It lasted all day/night and I didn't have to touch up once! Another tried and true summer foundation for me is the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless liquid foundation. It has great coverage and keeps me oil free all day. I apply my foundations with a brush or beauty sponge, my favorite affordable sponge is by Real Techniques. PS- make sure you wet/dampen your sponge before applying your products!
Setting Powder: For oily skin it's key to set your foundation/concealer. It keeps your makeup set and gives you a flawless finish. I've used the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder for years, but it is expensive. I am interested in trying the new Hourglass setting powder, but for now I've been using the most affordable product on the market. It's the Airspun loose setting powder and you can get it at Walmart or Walgreen's. It's under $10 and you get a ton of product! I like the translucent powder the best because it doesn't change the color of my foundation/concealer. Again, I can't emphasize enough the importance of a setting powder, it's a game changer!
