How to Beat the Heat: Beauty Tips for Humidity

  1. Quit styling with heat. Let’s be honest, you are probably just wasting your time. No matter how gorgeous you look when you step out of the door the proof is in the poof. If you really can’t stand your natural hair, try styling it in two tight dutch braids, or a sleek low-bun. Mini plastic elastics such as these ones by Diane ($5) are perfect for braids, to leave the ends with a polished finish.

  2. Apply dry shampoo BEFORE your hair is oily. I’m a wash my hair every day type of girl. Yes, I know that people like to argue that it is better for your hair to not do this; however, if I hit the gym, there is no possible way for me to not wash my hair after. Regardless of my frequent washes, I still find myself reaching for dry shampoo on summer mornings. Throughout the day, it helps to prevent greasy-looking hair, rather than just fixing it later. My go-to, Batise Dark and Deep Brown Dry Shampoo ($8.99) was featured in my July Favourites16986875
  3. Reach for your waterproof makeup. When it is really hot out, I essentially just adopt my beach day makeup routine, but add Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ($29). This product saves me in the summer. I feel the most “me” when I have a winged liner, so I can still get the look I love without worrying about smudged-looking eye makeup.
  4.  Only powder your t-zone. I know that this sounds a little scary, but it is helpful to come to terms with the fact that you are going to look sweaty in the summer no matter what you do. I apply a generous amount of powder to my t-zone, but leave my cheeks dewy. I have legitimately been asked what highlight I was wearing when in reality I was just sweating. I love to use NYX Blotting Powder ($14) in the t-zone.
  5. Carry some rosewater in your purse. Rosewater feels so refreshing to spray on your face, and won’t ruin any of the makeup that you already have on. It is also helpful to combat that weird tight feeling that your skin develops post sweating. I use Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist ($24).
