Summer is fun and great but it might not be your makeup products’ best friend. The heat and sweat of our old buddy, Mr. Sun, just might melt off our go-to products. The solution? A summer switch up! While there are a ton of brands that promise longevity and sweat-proofing, they might not have been tested in the heat we Filipinos are accustomed to. You know which brands might be able to provide you with looks that’ll last you through one of our summer days? Here at Beauty Bar, we have a pretty reliable source of makeup that won’t slide off your face. Add to that, the natural makeup look is still a go to and is essential for the summer especially when you’re walking around the streets of Metro Manila or sunbathing on the beautiful beaches in Boracay. Here are a few of our favorite makeup brands available in Metro Manila and the whole of Philippines.
A staple in every discussion of beauty brands is what kind of makeup brand works best for their skin type. Burt’s Bees has established themselves as a go-to for skincare needs, but they do have products that will help you if you need instant help that skincare can’t remedy. The Burt’s Bees BB Cream SPF 15 provides your skin with nourishment and a beautiful layer that will help get rid of that uneven skin tone. It’ll also protect you from the sun as they have incorporated SPF 15, which is also 98.9% natural.
If you need even more help, you can also use a skin perfecting serum such as Burt’s Bees Brightening Serum which helps with diminish the appearance of dark spots and discoloration on your skin. Not only does this help with improving the complexion of your skin, but applying any sort of makeup after will definitely look better and more natural especially under the hot summer sun. Both formulas provide a wonderful glow without feeling heavy or moving around your face.
I’m sure you saw this one coming as well. No one does sweat-proof makeup better than K-Palette. They’ve got your brows covered with their 1 Day Tattoo Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow Liner 24H so you can mimic brown hair with their fine tip brow pen, or have an easy day brushing on powder for a softer effect. You can lock in those brows with the 1 Day Tattoo lasting Eyebrow Mascara to add a bit more depth and dimension to your look.
If you’re still into eyeliner in the summer, but hate that most of them smudge in the summer, you need to look no further because 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner lasts. If you feel like black is a bit too harsh for your summer look, it does come in 3 lighter shades of brown that you can easily swap out if you feel the need to. Finally, mascara is a hit or miss with most brands, but K-Palette really does deliver. When they say long, they mean a natural-looking lengthening of your eyelashes. The 1 Day Lash Up Silky Long Mascara gives you mile-long lashes that don’t feel heavy and won’t smudge (provided you let them dry before rubbing your eyes).
Simple looks which are essential this summer need very little else aside from a great base and an emphasis on the eyes. Gear up with products from these brands and your summer look will stay on your beautifully done face until you pack it up for the day. What are your summer-proof makeup brands?
