Knowing how to apply makeup is an advantage, but at times, the weather can ruin your perfect look. If the weather is too hot, it can cause your makeup to melt, leaving you with a face full of colours. Most times, people avoid makeup during hot weather, but you don't have to.
Makeup on dark skin
The key to lasting makeup that won't collapse in hot weather is applying less makeup.
Try to keep your makeup light, swap your foundation for concealer and apply as little as possible. Using just concealer on spots that need covering like eye bags or hyperpigmentation gives your face a lighter and more natural finish.
Elf Face primer
You should also make use of a good primer, to keep your products on, especially on your eyes so that your eyeshadow and eyeliner doesn't drip all over. The primer will hold your makeup in place, even when you start to sweat. Properly moisturize your skin, then prime your face before you begin applying makeup for a firmer hold.

Waterproof makeup products
Waterproof products are also a great way to keep your makeup in place. Try to use makeup products that will not drip when you sweat.
You can purchase waterproof eyeshadow, concealer, foundation and even lipstick. These are more likely to withstand the hot weather than regular makeup products.
Milan 'Make It Last' setting spray
Setting spray is another great tip for keeping your makeup in place.
Just like the primer, setting spray seals your makeup in when you are done, preventing it from getting all over the place in the hot weather.
