Summer Makeup Tips for Mature Women

Summer is here, and with it comes the sunshine, beach days, and endless outdoor fun. But let's be honest – the summer heat can wreak havoc on our makeup game, leaving us feeling less than fabulous.

But don't worry, I've got you covered with some tried-and-true summer makeup tips that will keep you looking fresh and flawless all season long. 💄


1. Prep Your Canvas 🧴

Always start with a solid skincare routine. Cleanse your face to remove any impurities, then apply a lightweight moisturizer. This helps create a smooth and hydrated base, ensuring that your makeup applies more evenly and lasts longer throughout the day.


2. Lighten Up ☀️

Heavy foundations are a no-go for summer. Swap out your heavy foundation for a lightweight tinted moisturizer or BB cream. Not only will this even out your skin tone, but it'll also feel much lighter and more comfortable in the heat.


3. Prime Time 🎨

Start with a good primer to create a smooth base for your makeup and help it last longer in the heat. Look for a mattifying primer if you tend to get oily, or a hydrating primer if your skin is on the drier side.


4. Waterproof Everything 💧

Opt for waterproof formulas for your mascara, eyeliner, and even eyeshadow to prevent smudging and smearing, especially on hot and humid days.


5. Set It and Forget It 🔒

Lock in your makeup with a setting spray to keep it in place all day. A few spritzes of setting spray will help prevent your makeup from melting away, even in the sweltering heat.


6. Keep It Simple 💋

Summer is all about effortless beauty, so keep your makeup routine simple. Stick to neutral eyeshadows, a swipe of waterproof mascara, and a pop of color on the lips for an easy, breezy summer look.


7. Blot, Don't Cake 🎂

Instead of piling on powder throughout the day, use blotting papers to absorb excess oil and shine. This will help keep your makeup looking fresh without adding extra layers.


8. Don't Forget SPF ☂️

Last but certainly not least, don't forget to protect your skin with SPF. Look for a lightweight sunscreen that won't clog pores or feel greasy under makeup, and don't forget to reapply throughout the day, especially if you're spending time outdoors.


With these simple summer makeup tips, you'll be able to beat the heat and stay looking fabulous all season long. So go ahead, embrace the sunshine, and let your natural beauty shine! ✨



  • Hey, Kathy! Glad to hear you’ve got your skincare routine down pat. You don’t want to skip the serum, especially on hot days. Using a serum will help refresh your skin during hot weather and keep it hydrated. If you’re worried about layering on too many products, I get it! But serums are typically lightweight and absorb rather quickly into the skin, so there’s no need to worry!

  • My routine is wash face / swipe with toner/
    Use “your” vitamin C serum / lightweight moisturizer with sunscreen… Should I omit serum on hot days ?
