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

Choosing make-up for your skin tone goes far beyond getting the foundation right. However, there are a few colours in make-up products that look flattering and stunning on anyone, irrespective of skin tone.

Roy N Subramoney, Managing Director, INGLOT Cosmetics, APAC and Middle East, lists some trends that will work well on every skin tone:

* The iconic red lipstick: There’s something magical about the red lipstick. A flattering red lipstick can pull your look together, even if you’re not wearing heavy make-up. Available in matte, gloss and shimmer, the red lipstick can complete your make up look even if you opt for a minimalistic look. There is a shade of red lipstick for every skin tone. Fair toned women can pick cool-toned red lipsticks with hints of blue and purple. For medium skin tones, orange-red shades work well. A poppy red also helps cancel out any sallowness in medium skin tones. On dark complexions, deep, bright, matte reds work well. One can opt for, candy-apple reds.

* Neutral colours in eyeshadows: Eye shadows are an integral part of eye make-up. Whether fair/medium/dark skin tones, one can create sultry looking eyes with neutral eye shadows. Neutral tones are the best to create a natural look which works well as day wear, for brunch and other day occasions alike!

* Bronze toned blush: The blush is always an important make-up product in your collection. The blush, even when applied in a small amount, brings out the inner glow, highlights cheekbones and defines the face. A cinnamon or deep bronze toned blush works well for all skin tones be it fair/ medium/dark and works like magic to transform a muted regular wear look into a glamorous glow.

Debasmita Panja, Senior Brand Manager, Color Category at AVON India, shares inputs:

* Colour correcting (CC) cream: Choosing the right foundation for your skin tone can be tricky. Whenever in doubt, a CC Cream with SPF 50/ PA is the best option as a make-up base. CC cream has the real results of fading dark spots and dullness, feels lightweight on the skin and gives 24-hour moisturisation. Women with fair to light skin tone can opt for wheat shade and others can go for nude shades.
