How to prevent makeup from melting
Malaysia’s hot and humid weather does not always bode well for makeup. More often than not, this results in creases on the eyes and orange sweat from our foundation, and running to the bathroom to do yet another touch up.
To counter this we need to prime our faces properly to ensure that make up stays on for a longer time without melting into nothing in the heat.
Before putting on foundation on the face, it’s best to put on a foundation primer on the skin first. Primers are usually made out of waxes, polymers and silicone which would enable them to bind to makeup so that it lasts longer on the skin.
There are many types of primers in the market. Different skin types need different types of primers whether it be for dry or oily skin,
Tinted primers usually function to even out the skin complexion whereas pearlized primers has a more light-reflective effect.
There are also different eye primers available so that eye shadow can stay on for longer on eyelids and prevent or prolong the formation of ugly eye shadow creases or smudges. Eye primers are of utmost importance especially for those with oily eyelids.
