Summer heat makes adjustments to your daily makeup routine. First of all, you should take care of protecting your skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays. In the summer, there is no need to apply an excessive amount of products to your face – the heat will do its job and your makeup will simply run off.

It's better to replace the standard makeup routine and avoid foundation altogether. An interesting life hack is gaining popularity on the web to help hide skin imperfections.

An alternative to a thick, rich foundation is concealer. It will provide full coverage to hide spots and uneven skin tone. To create the perfect look, you should apply concealer to four areas: the forehead, under-eye area, cheeks, and chin.

Step 1

Start by creating a good foundation. Concealer can flake off on too dry or oily skin, so it's important not to skip the preliminary step of cleansing and moisturizing.

A primer will help the concealer "stick" to the skin. Primers can also hide large pores, as they often contain ingredients that control excess sebum. It is especially important to use a primer if your skin is prone to acne and blackheads. For dry skin, a primer with moisturizing ingredients is suitable to even out the tone.

Step 2

After preparing your skin, apply a medium to full coverage concealer to your forehead and upper nose. Then apply concealer to the under-eye area in an inverted triangle shape, from the crease of the nostrils down to the corner of the lips. Next, move up along the natural curve of the cheekbone. The last step is to add a thin oblique strip of product on the sides of the chin. Blend thoroughly with a brush or your fingers.

Step 3

If you need additional coverage for acne, blemishes, or redness, feel free to use spot concealer. Try to apply a minimal amount of product, as the goal is to enhance the skin, not to use layers of concealer instead of foundation.

You can also apply bronzer to the cheekbones, temples, and jawline to enhance the skin's radiance.
