The season of heat and sweat is just around the corner, and with high temperatures and extra humidity come new daily challenges. You've spent an hour creating the perfect makeup look, only to have the scorching sun melt it away in ten minutes.

Of course, the best thing you can do for your skin in the summer is to avoid foundation or powder altogether, protecting your skin with a cream with SPF 30+. However, if you have a special event coming up that you need to look spectacular for, you may need to do something a little more drastic. American reality TV star Olivia Atwood suggests using deodorant in the form of a stick.

A radical life hack

A word of caution: no, we do not recommend using this, frankly speaking, questionable life hack daily. Deodorant is best used under the armpits, not on sensitive facial skin.

Atwood suggests trying a deodorant in the form of a stick – not a liquid deodorant, but one with a waxy composition. You don't need to apply it all over your face – just to the area above the upper lip or other areas that sweat frequently.

Atwood also explained that she also applied primer, foundation, and concealer to her skin.

Please note that wax deodorants clog pores very much, so if you've already decided on this life hack, be prepared for certain risks.

Other tips

Be sure to take into account your skin type: the fight against oiliness and dryness will significantly affect the durability of makeup. Experts advise avoiding products that are too drying or matting. Thirsty skin produces more sebum, and matting products will clog pores.

Pay attention to waterproof makeup formulas. Foundations should have a consistency that adds a slight hint of color when applied and gives the skin a more natural look.

Makeup artists also suggest using a setting spray or translucent powder to ensure that your makeup stays put for a long time and prevents shine from forming on your face. Sweat and sebum should be periodically wiped off with special matting wipes.

And the main tip – do not forget about a high-quality cream with an SPF level of more than 30.
