While the sunshine is certainly cause to celebrate, the hot sun and humid air throughout summer is definitely a makeup friend’s least favourite season. The high temperature and inevitable sweat tend to strip you of your face paint just hours, if not minutes, into your day, leaving you stuck with half-done face. SKIN investigates the best summer beauty hacks to make you look primped while enjoying the sunny weather!
In this hot temperature, there’s a constant worry of dreaded racoon eyes when dark makeup migrates wither onto lids or on the under-eye areas.

It prevents water or sweat from removing your products. This also ensure that your artistry will look exactly how you intended it to be all day and through any swimming or sweating!
