Never ever skip a primer
The key to long-lasting makeup is a primer. Primer manages the shine in your T-zone and takes good care of your large pores. Before applying any foundation or concealer on your face, apply primer on your skin. Primer helps to prevent a midday makeup meltdown. Use lip primer and eyelid primer, to put your lipstick and eye makeup on its place.

Mattifying foundation is your savior
In summers, avoid full coverage makeup products, go for something light such as bb and cc creams. But if you want full coverage makeup for a wedding or an event, apply a foundation with a matte finish. Avoid products with a radiant finish because it will leave your face looking greasy. Application matters a lot so always dab in rolling motions using a beauty blender.
