1/ Less is more
In this hot and humid Tokyo summer, it is easy to smudge and sweat through your makeup. To avoid patchy foundation, use only what you need, like a concealer to cover the spots and dark circles.
2/ Try a tinted moisturizer
If you can’t fathom heading outside without foundation, apply a thin layer of a tinted moisturizer. If you don’t have one available, you can always make your own by mixing your regular liquid foundation with your moisturiser.
3/ Don’t forget your lips
As we often move from outdoor sweltering heat to indoor air-conditioning, our lips can get dry, cracked and flaky. To keep your lips supple, exfoliate, moisturize and protect with an organic lip balm that contains SPF.
4/ Invest in multi-function makeup
There are great products on the market that can be applied for a light rose-toned colour for the eyes, cheeks and lips that will give you a soft, glowing complexion.
5/ Stop smudging with waterproof formulas
Ensure you don’t get panda eyes with waterproof eyeliner and mascara. We recommend that instead of wearing mascara this summer, try eyelash tinting or eyelash extensions, which are a great investment to ensure you have luscious looking lashes without any risk of smudging.
