With summer comes melting makeup, smeared eyeliner, and super-sticky hair hence it is important to give proper hydration and relaxation to your skin and hair to be easy breezy as the temperature soars up.

Sushma Khan, National Creative Director-Makeup, Lakmé Salon and TIGI Educator Audrey D’Souza have listed the summer switch that must be made your regime to make your makeup last long and hair stay strong.

* For make-up

* Go light: Through the summer ‘less is more’ should be your mantra. The lesser the products you use, the lighter your skin will feel and make-up will not feel heavy. The summer is known to make your skin sweaty and layering more make-up on the face will add to it. Hence, it is highly recommended to use products with anti-bacterial properties.

Replace your foundation with a concealer to hide imperfections and feel light. Products with SPF of 30++ at least are a must. BB Creams are also a great option as it is an emulation of moisturizer and tinted foundation. Use more of light water-based products to make it feel light during summer, heat and sweating. Cut down your make up products to less than half and use the bare minimum.

* Multitask with your makeup : Invest in a product that does it all – for the lips, lids, and cheeks. It would cut down your routine to half and help keep your bag light. Simply choose from a range of summery bright or light lip and cheek tints as it will add a healthy glow with minimalistic colour.

* Switch to waterproof: Invest in waterproof eyelines, mascaras and eye pencils. With the temperatures rising high, one tends to rub and wipe of the face regularly. This might, at times, end up in either smudging or fading. Choose between a highly or lightly pigmented waterproof eye products so that the look is as fresh as it was in the morning.

* Shortcut to volume: Wash and condition your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner to combat the limp and sticky hair. Prep your hair with volumizing lotion before the blow dry to give your hair volume for days. Brush backwards and say hello to 3x more volume!

* Beach waves for days: Boho-inspired beachy waves are the ultimate summer hair-do. Apply curling mousse on wet hair and scrunch it up in a bun. Use tongs to achieve the wavy look. You can also opt for dry shampoos to fight the stickiness on your third hair days. It also adds to the beachy texture.   BOLLYWOODCOUNTRY

From being a humble beauty blogger to becoming the founder of a billion worth beauty brand Huda Beauty, Huda Kattan has come a long way. Her brand started in 2013 and is now one of the most recognisable names in the beauty industry. In a chat with IANSlife, the 36-year-old Iraqi-American gets candid about her brand, her favourite makeup products and shares words of encouragement for women entrepreneurs. Read excerpts from the interview.

What do you think your brand is synonymous to?

Kattan: We would hope the word would be empowering! Through our product, our content, our story and our vision we hope everything that we do encourages and empowers everyone around the world to feel loved and included, to be their best self and to chase their dreams. Anything is possible with passion and purpose and we put that into everything that we do at Huda Beauty and we hope it shows!

What kind of makeup do you like?

Kattan: I don’t think there is a specific kind of makeup that I like because I just love makeup in general, it’s that simple! If I had to choose a product, I would probably choose my favourite lip pencil and brow product! I always carry my Huda Beauty lip liner in shade trendsetter with me everywhere I go. It’s my go-to shade and if I don’t have lipstick on me, I just fill in my entire lips for an even lip colour. My ride-or-die brow product would have to be my Benefit Brow Wiz in shade 4.5. I swear by Benefit brow products and highly recommend. Even if I have minimal makeup on, my brows are a must-do.

Kattan: It may seem very emotional, but I think the two things that set you apart from growing competition are authenticity and connection. Without these two, I think it’s hard to stand out and to build a loyal community despite how strong your business model may be. We do everything from the heart and our community knows it. We talk with them, listen to them and make them feel like they are a part of our journey because they are. We don’t try to sell them anything we don’t truly believe in and they know that. All of the content we push is extremely authentic and we still recommend and promote other products to show that it’s still the case. During a consumer-led time, it’s important to really understand what “consumer-led” means and to operate accordingly.

Have you ever faced any criticism for your work?

Kattan: Absolutely. There will always be haters no matter what you do. Initially I paid attention to them and I let them absorb some of my energy but after a while I realized they will always exist no matter what you do and you can’t please them, so why waste your energy on them at all? I typically let the negative comments roll off my back and I focus my energy on the more positive activity going on for me and the brand and it’s proven to be so much more efficient and productive for us.

Your words of encouragement for women who want to have an identity of themselves?

Kattan: Believe in yourself and surround yourself with people that believe in you as well. When you have support around you, you can do anything! I’d also say don’t be afraid. It’s ok to take risks and fail. Every step along the way is a learning. If you’re passionate enough to persevere and keep going, then every failure will be a learning and you’ll eventually get to where you want to be! (IANS)
