Is your summer skin making you look oily?
During the warmer months, everyone trades in their matte beauty looks from fall for glowing skin. So, of course, you dial up the hydration, applying moisturizer or oil to your face. Once you apply your skin makeup, if you look too shiny, setting powder is the answer.
While these are popular steps, too much moisturizer and setting powder in your makeup routine could be keeping your skin from living its best life in the summer heat.
“Moisturizer is important, but you don’t put it everywhere,” celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff shared during a behind-the-scenes look into Priyanka Chopra‘s life with Harper’s Bazaar. “You don’t want a shiny center, so moisturizer on the perimeter of the face. Hydration in the areas where you want the glowiness.”
Once the beauty expert applied the Augustinus Bader The Cream, she added a matte primer to the Quantico star’s T-zone.
“Then, mattification in the center, where you’re going to want to be more matte, but you don’t want to use a lot of powder, because powder is so aging,” she continued.
After completing these steps, you can move on to foundation, concealer, highlighter and bronzer, per usual.
“On an everyday basis, I don’t like too much makeup on my face, especially on my skin,” Priyanka added.
On days when you don’t have a makeup artist at hand (a.k.a. every day for us) and you want skip skin makeup all together, the actress gave some solid advice:
“It’s important to keep your skin clean, washed, moisturized—like really moisturized. All you need is a little bit of powder on your T.”
Cheers to your summer glow!
