How to Perfect Your Makeup Routine, No Matter the Season

How to Perfect Your Makeup Routine, No Matter the Season
I don’t think any girl would underestimate the time, money, and endless sample swatching it takes to build the perfect makeup routine. And just when you get it right, the seasons change, your skin changes and you’re forced back to the drawing board. *sigh* 

The secret to success is finding a routine of products that is adaptable to the seasons, and will look totally flawless rain, hail or shine.

This is what you should consider!

Know Your Skin
Generally, we all know our skin type. Whether you’re oily, combination, dry or sensitive. However, if you’re anything like me you may find the changing seasons can leave your skin in the midst of a minor identity crisis. For me, my usually dry skin becomes oily in the T-zone during the warmer months and I break out a great deal more!

No one wants to have to switch up their entire skincare and makeup routine every season. The secret is finding products that are adaptable to the changing seasons and for us, minerals are the best-kept secret.

Applying a mineral foundation, such as our Active Mineral Powder Foundation using a dense kabuki brush helps mattify oily skin, but you already knew that. What you perhaps didn't realise is that it can also work great for dry skin. Especially if you find that liquid foundation always disappear into your pores hours after applying.

Look for Skin-Saving Benefits
Your poor skin goes through A LOT when the season's change but what it needs, generally stays the same. Dry skin? Nutrients, anti-oxidants and hydration. Oily skin? Yep, nutrients, anti-oxidants and hydration. Combination? I think you get the gist.

Whatever the product, whether it be makeup or skincare, you should always look for skin-saving benefits that will replenish, restore and revitalise your skin no matter the time of year.

Our Superfood HIIT Serum combines some seriously powerful natural ingredients to ensure your skin never goes hungry – check it out here! 

Water-Proof and Sweat-Proof

Whether it’s your sweat, or Mother’s Nature’s sky-sweat (aka rain) moisture can destroy a perfectly applied face in a flash. 

The easiest way to avoid the melting makeup and panda eyes is to invest in products that are water-resistant. And trust us, you won’t need to sacrifice quality or finish. There are some great options out there!

For example, all of our products, whether it be brows, mascara, or foundation are 100% sweat-proof. This means that until you’re washing your face, or removing it with a cleansing oil, your makeup will stay put, and more importantly, stay flawless.

Keep It Sun-Smart

It’s 2019, I shouldn’t need to remind you to wear sun protection EVERY DAY. No matter the weather, UV rays are present all year round, especially for our girls in Oz!

SPF may not sound sexy, but it’s anti-aging and cancer-preventing benefits sure are. Always try to pick products that contain a natural SPF, just like our Active Mineral Powder Foundation. Because makeup will look better on healthy, even-toned skin and skin health should always be your top priority. 

Fitcover's products are not only sweat-proof, but they’re also totally season proof. Whether it be winter, summer, autumn or spring, Fitcover is here to leave your skin glowing and glorious.
