9 Makeup Must-Haves For Long, Hot Summer Days

By Khanak Mehta 

The summer season is here and we all know what that means – it's time to put away our deep, cherry lipsticks and black eyeliners and dust off our pop lipsticks and eyeshadows.


But, between the long work or college days and the summer heat, it can be a little hard to pull off a full face of colourful makeup and make it last all day long.


So, on the days when the temperature is hot, hot, hot, keep your full coverage picks aside, and stick to this light, no-makeup makeup routine instead. We promise that this will require minimal touch-ups and keep you looking fresh even at the end of the day.

A matte primer will ensure a sweat-proof base for your makeup all day long. This smoothening formula will also help make your skin look flawless.

Skip the heavy foundations and stick to a hydrating, lightweight BB cream instead. Layer it up in areas where you need coverage instead of tapping on concealer.

A translucent powder will keep your skin matte all day long without adding on any extra coverage. Read: No more sweat or streaky makeup!

A lip and cheek tint will do double duty, and help you get a monochromatic look without any extra fuss, too. PS: You can swipe some on your eyelids for a hint of colour as well.

Don’t skip on the glow! A liquid highlighter is a versatile pick that you can tap onto the high points of your cheeks, eyelids, and in the centre of your pout, too.

Define your eyes with this jet-black, waterproof eyeliner. This organic formula promises to stay on your eyes all day long, without being harsh on them.

For long days under the sun, a waterproof mascara is a must-have. This pick from Lakme gives you long, curled lashes with just a few swipes.

Set your makeup in place with this hydrating setting spray that won’t strip your skin of moisture. Bonus: You can also carry it with you for a mid-day refresh.

Put away the lipstick and invest in a lip gloss for easy, on the go touch ups. We love this long-lasting formula from SUGAR Cosmetics.
