Need help with your makeup

So that the make-up doesn't go for a swim!

Swimming, diving, sweating, showering ... after a few hours every conventional mascara has turned into a carnival look and every lipstick is smeared. If you want to be sure that everything stays exactly where it belongs in summer, you can't avoid waterproof make-up (at least if you don't want to have permanent make-up done). The rescue? - Waterproof products (Attention: if a product is only labeled as "water-repellent", it does not mean "waterproof"!).

Waterproof make-up has a higher pigmentation with a lower water content and therefore allows eyeshadow and co to stick longer. This is achieved by combining the paint with volatile essences that evaporate after application, leaving only the paint layer behind. As far as waterproof eyeshadows are concerned, they are all made on a cream basis, as the powder version cannot withstand heat and water.

Whereby: Almost 100 percent water resistance is only available with mascara - products were developed here that can even withstand a few dives. 100 percent primers are also already available (“woman” is only on the safe side, however, when she gets a setting powder that really makes the make-up 100 percent smudge-proof and waterproof).

Even eyeliners (for those who don't like kohl), browliners and lipliners from various brands are already being advertised as “24-hour products” - you have to try out whether this also applies to your own requirements.

Rouge, on the other hand, will never survive a ten-hour summer day - there are no miracles in cosmetics either. If you value a flawless appearance, you should renew your "waterproof" make-up after your activity in the water. No paint, however waterproof, is immune to rubbing with a towel.

In order to remove such a long lasting blaze of color, special cleaners with an additional oil content are required. Waterproof mascara can be used e.g. B. remove with a 2-phase oil-in-water emulsion. The rest is best wiped off with a mild cleaning milk or special cleaning cloths and very warm water.

If you tend to have oily skin, you have to thoroughly clean the whole face again after removing make-up with oil in order to free the cheek area from the oil film. This is the only way to avoid pimples and blackheads.

It is important to also apply a sun protection factor under the make-up and let it take effect. Or to use a make-up in which the sun protection is already integrated (like with a sun protection product you still get tan with it, but not as quickly). Under no circumstances should you use gloss - it can look like glass in the sun and burn your lips terribly (and it hurts a lot!). And: Be careful that make-up is removed, especially around the eyes, as otherwise eyelid inflammation or something similar is likely ...
