Anyone who has lived in Texas long knows that our summers are no joke. We have asked the experts and they have given us some summer-proof wedding hair and makeup tips.
Go-to summer makeup
Depending on your skin type, choose products that are appropriate. Keeping the cream or liquid complexion products to thinner layers and using pressed powder as well as powder blush are generally better choices to avoid makeup meltdowns. Also consider using waterproof makeup.
Best summer-hair looks
Up-dos are are the go to hairstyle for summer but if you must have your hair down consider having a half-up half-down style. Especially if you are the type to sweat on your neck and back. The curls will go limp once wet. Braids are can add interest to a simple bun or updo and are fairly heat and humidity-resistant so you don’t have worry about if it will look the same by the end of the night.
Keeping your hair & makeup intact
The most important thing is to know your skin and hair type so you can purchase products that will work best for you. For instance if you’re hair gets super frizzy in the least bit of humidity opt for anti-frizz products. If you have naturally oily skin you’ll want to choose makeup products that are made for oily skin. Finishing sprays are also vital in keeping your look intact all day.
What to do to keep looking perfect and sweat-free
Plan your day so that you are not in direct sun during peak hours from 11 am-2pm. When you start to sweat dap with a napkin don’t rub or wipe. The longer you let the sweat stay the more it will break down your makeup.
