Its that time of year again the sun is out and so are we, for any beauty addict or even your average makeup wearer summer is a time that can present us with many makeup mishaps. Here are 5 major makeup issues that we all face during the hot summer months and how to fix them
The heat of a summer day can play havoc with our perfect concealing and highlighting. Our makeup tends to slide right off and is under the influence of the heat and humidity. To prevent your makeup from just sliding right off, make sure to prep your skin with a primer. This will help to hold your makeup onto your face. Once you have all your makeup perfectly applied allow it to set itself for a few minutes and then apply powder over top. The combination of the primer underneath and the powder on top will help to hold your makeup in place all day, no matter how hot it is. Using a primer such as Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, ($6.99, Walgreens) with Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, ($3.99, Ulta) can really do wonders for keeping your makeup lasting!
Summer of course will involve trekking out to some concerts or even actually trekking up a mountain. Whatever the event that’s on your agenda it is never fun or practical to go lugging your entire makeup bag around. Don’t go weighing yourself down with concealers, powders and brushes, simply slid some oil blotting sheets into your purse and you can ensure your face looks shine and sweat free all day long.

The humidity is one of the worst elements of summer weather and it has no mercy when it comes to our hair. A top tip is to use hair products for sleek and shiny locks. Alberto V05 Heat Protect Styling Spray, ($14.39, Amazon) protects your hair from damage from heat tools and keeps it tame even in the most humid weather.
One thing a lot of people tend to overlook is SPF. Although we should be wearing this all year round, it is extremely important in the summer months. Switch your regular moisturizer and foundation for ones with SPF of 30 or higher. This will save you from getting sunburnt on long days out and protecting your skin from the damaging effects of the sun, which cause your skin to age.

Many of us know the dangers of lying in the sun in an attempt to tan, so instead we opt for a tan in a bottle. Of course this can often lead to unsightly streaks. Getting rid of them is a quick and painless process. Simply mix together some lemon juice and baking soda until it forms a paste and then gently exfoliate any areas of extreme streakiness.
