Dubai is getting hotter. A wedding at this time of the year is a big beauty concern for most of us. Hot sun and its heat is your biggest enemy. It can completely melt down your make up if not applied correctly. Whether you are a bride or bridesmaid or just a guest to a wedding, these 6 Make Up tips for a Summer Wedding in Dubai can help you beat the heat and look gorgeous.
- Apply a Primer
Excitement can cause adrenaline rush and hence more heat inside along with the heat outside. This can be a big risk to your make up. Apply a primer right after your moisturizer to prepare your skin for foundation and powder—it will ensure everything stays and lasts longer.
- Foundation for flawless skin
There are so many varieties of foundation available—liquid, powder, mousse—which means there truly is something for everyone and every skin type. To avoid that extra oil from foundation, prepare your skin by applying an anti-shine product. If you have a great flawless skin then skip the foundation and just stick to a spot concealer under your eyes, corners of your nose and cover the blemishes. If using a foundation then go for an oil free one. Using a liquid foundation then apply powder on your face.
- Define your Eyes in an oil free way
Using a concealer brush, apply concealer all over your lid, from lash line to brow. This will help your shadow adhere to your skin and will make the eye make-up stay longer and withstand tears. If you have oily lids then use matte products and then concealer. Avoid creamy eye shadows. Use water proof liquid or gel eye liners. Water proof mascara is a must.
- Blush Up your Cheeks
Go for a soft powdery formula which will absorb the oil because of the hot weather. You can also blend a cream formula into the apple of the cheek, then finish with a sweep of powder blush in a similar shade.
- Avoid too much of Bronzers
Let the summer sun provide the sheen, stay away from shimmers. Even if you are a big fan of it, opt for a matte powder over a creamy or liquid type.
- Consider Lipstick over the Lip Gloss
Gloss can be messy and sticky. Choose a hydrating matte formula of lipstick in a soft, pretty shade or if you like a bit of shine, try a tinted lip balm.
The Final Word
Don’t leave the home without your rescue make up kit. Keep it handy with your mom or maidof honor. It should include a compact, the same lipstick shade that you have applied, powder-free blotting papers to shoo away shine, and a small tube of concealer with a tiny synthetic brush for quick touch ups.
