Lightweight makeup that won’t melt off in this summer heat

By CAMILLE SANTIAGO Published Apr 07, 2021 2:51 pm

Even if we're cooped up at home this summer, there's still something to be excited about during this time. Yes, we're talking about makeup releases! This is the perfect time to experiment with your look, and if it means trying new products, we're down for it.

But if the thought of applying a heavy coverage foundation in this hot, humid weather of ours is making you think about skipping makeup altogether, don't! There are lightweight makeup made for this weather.

In the interest of saving you time, money, (and shipping fee), we've gathered the new makeup releases this summer for you. From a new self-reflecting foundation to a magnetic lifting mascara and a gel-cream blush, keep reading to see what's hot in summer 2021.

Maybelline Cheek Heat, P299

When it comes to blush, you'd want to skip cream and powder blushes and go for gel types. Maybelline's newest Cheek Heat Sheer Gel-Cream Blush is the quickest way to bring a healthy natural glow and color to your face.

Issy & Co. Active Skin Tint, P499

Issy & Co. Active Skin Tint covers up blemishes but still somehow has a skin-like, lightweight, sheer finish. It's also formulated with niacinamide to improve skin texture and control sebum production, squalene and glycerin to nourish and hydrate, and UVB/UVA SPF 35 to protect skin against harmful UV rays.

Benefit They're Real! Magnet Mascara, P1,790

Since a visit to a lash expert is quite impossible these days, you will need a product that will lift your lashes and hold them long enough until the end of the day. Luckily, Benefit Cosmetics have upgraded their They're Real Mascara with one that lengthens lashes for about 36 hours with a magnetic force called They're Real! Magnet Mascara! Pro tip from Benefit: "Allow a few seconds of drying time between coats to build the most EXTREME lash drama!"

Shiseido Synchro Skin Radiant Lifting Foundation, P3,000

Less is more is ideal during summer—that's why products with multi-uses or multi-benefits are the best picks this season. And for us, the new Shiseido Synchro Skin Radiant Lifting Foundation is an "add to cart" essential if you're looking for a coverage foundation that gives illuminating effects. Thanks to its Light-Adjusting Technology, this medium-to-full, buildable coverage foundation addresses your skin's concerns: fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and loss of hydration.

It also contains a combination of transparent pearls, radiant microcrystals, and advanced optical filters that adapts to any ambient lighting condition—meaning, it gives you glow no matter what the lighting is! Plus, it gives 24-hour hydration, sun protection, and supports skin's radiance.

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Dip Lip Gloss, P1,320, Sephora.ph

This summer, we're skipping the liquid lipsticks and creamy lipsticks for tints and lip glosses. Fenty Beauty's Gloss Bomb Dip Lip Gloss is now in a portable clip-on pan to make it easy for you to bring anywhere. It's shiny but not sticky, and will make lips look fuller.
