Makeup Tips for Theme Park DayApril 3, 2015
If you want to look flawless all day without having to spend hours getting ready, check out some of the products that’ll help you put on a foolproof, quick and easy makeup look together:
Tinted Sunscreen: you can use a moisturizer with SPF, BB cream or plain sunscreen to prep the skin. Please don’t skip this part, because the sun can be evil when you are walking around for hours at a time. This one from The Balm is light and provides fair to medium coverage. Check out this blog post reviewing this product.
Foundation: if you need more coverage than just a tinted moisturizer, grab a long-wearing foundation and use a third of the amount you would usually use for a night out. Your sweat from the hours under the sun will most likely break up even the strongest makeup formula out there. So unless you plan on retouching several times a day, go light on the coverage and take care of problem spots by applying the next item on this list. This Mac foundation can truly last all day. Apply with a wet sponge for better results.
Concealer: if you have a couple of marks or acne spots that you want to cover, just dab a bit of concealer on the problem area with your fingers using the least amount of product necessary. The Covergirl/Olay concealer is creamy and super easy to apply.
Powder: finish the look with a translucent powder to help set in the foundation and ensure the makeup won’t move around as the day get hotter. The translucent powder will help to set the foundation without adding color or making the look cakey or too heavy. NYX Cosmetics offers a fine powder and fine price tag when compared to high-end products!
Waterproof Mascara: going on water rides can make you look like a panda if you’re not wearing waterproof mascara. Leave the panda for the wild and keep your lush lashes intact by going waterproof. Pick your mascara based on the type of wand you prefer. We love the Covergirl one that has a rubber wand.
Lip and cheek stain: you don’t want to have to worry about reapplying lipstick all the time, so just stick with a lip stain that will be sure to keep your lips colored even after the shiny layer has vanished. Use a product that can double up as a blush as well.
