The most common problem we battle especially in summer is how to keep the makeup stay. In summers the skin becomes oily especially the eyelids, and it’s very difficult that your gorgeous smoky or glittery eyes will last all day.
Don’t worry, in this article we are going to tell you about how you can get rid of the oily eyelids so that your eye makeup can last longer.
We asked a New York-based makeup artist and the CEO of the Glow Beauty Bar Heather Adessa. According to Adessa, most of our makeup problems are solved if only we start to use good quality products. Oily eyelids are there because your skin is producing more oil than it should. Of course, people with dry skin have fewer problems of oily eyelids and thus lesser makeup disasters.
The good news is that there are a lot of products of different brands available in the market that will make your eyes look fabulous even while having oily eyelids.
Here are a few tips from Adessa for getting the flawless eye makeup look:
The first and the most important thing is cleansing. Even if you have washed your face at night, it is always recommended that you wash your face the first thing in the morning. By doing this, you will be able to wash off any bacteria that might be clinging to your skin through your bed or pillow. You can use a makeup remover to get a total cleansed look.
After the cleansing, use a good moisturizer to moisturize your skin. Your doctor or beautician can help you to find the right moisturizer for you which are suitable for your skin type. If you intend to go out, use a sunscreen as well. Adessa suggests that you can use a moisturizer that has sunscreen already added to it.
The second important tip is that before applying the makeup, your skin should be completely dry. Then you can use a primer. A lot of people do not give much importance to this essential makeup product. Trust me, this is the one thing alone, which can make your makeup last longer. According to Adessa the magic ingredient for all the makeup artists out there is the primer, if you don’t use the primer, even your face powder will last only for few hours, but by using primer, your makeup can last all day.
Adessa says that MAC products and Makeup Forever products are the best even if you do not use a primer.
When you have created your desired eye makeup, the last thing to do is to use an all set spray. This spray will not only give you a fresh look but will also set your makeup in place all day.
According to Adessa, one should not use the setting spray every day. Keep it saved and use it for bigger events like weddings etc. MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime’ Fix+ Finishing Mist is usually recommended by beauticians.
Keep these tips in mind and use them whenever you are in the mood to have a good eye makeup done.
