Sweat-Proof Make-up Tips

Britain is currently enjoying a heatwave, with temperatures soaring to a huge 38 degrees in London last week.

While great for our tans and vitamin D intake, the heat can be disastrous for our make-up.

This is why we at Glamdeva have come to the rescue, sharing some sweat-proof make-up tips to make use of this summer.

Make use of waterproof products

You and your make-up don’t need to suffer in the heat. In fact, many make-up brands out there have created products to make sure of it. This is why as sweaty season encroaches, it is advisable to stock up on waterproof products. Go-to items include:

  • Mascara
  • Foundations
  • Concealer
  • Blusher
  • Eyeshadow

Get moisturising

When we sweat and don’t wash straight after, it can impact our skin in a negative way, especially the facial area. This is why moisturising before applying make-up in the heat is a good idea. However, ensure the product you use is an oil control one, keeping your skin hydrated while minimising skin shine.

Setting spray

Though back in the day we used to use hairspray to set our faces for the night, there are now various products out there to seal your make-up and protect it from being melted by the sun. Setting spray can be bought at most make-up counters for less than £10, making it a pretty cheap way to keep the sweat at bay.

Wedding Make-up Looks for 2019

Wedding season is now well and truly upon us. Now around half way through, we have started to see what wedding make-up looks are hot, and what are not.

Today, we explore the best make-up products, techniques and colours the beautiful brides of Britain are sporting on their bog day.

Blushing brides

Where last year was all about the contouring, this year we are returning to pinker blushers. Brides are enjoying the rosier cheek this year, with Mac’s Powder Blush product before perfect for creating a healthy glow. We particularity like wearing the Pink Swoon!


Though wedding looks were once about tradition and convention, we are now seeing brides get more and more daring with their hair and make-up for their big day. This has encouraged increased use of glittered make-up, with sparkly eyeshadows, blushers and even lipstick being on-trend.


False eyelashes and weddings go hand in hand, with all brides wanting that editorial look when for their all-important pictures.

In 2019, brides are going larger than life with their lashes, with mink eyelashes proving rather popular. Being thick, jet black and perfect for making the eye sparkle, mink lashes are a wedding beauty must-have.


Putting further focus on the eye area, wedding MUAs are also experimenting with eyeliner. Elongating the eye with liquid eyeliner wings is a look we are seeing a lot of this season.

3 Make-up Tips for the Beach

Britain has this week enjoyed a rather lovely heatwave, with the sunny weather putting a smile on all of our faces. Not only has this made the working week that bit more bearable, but the warm weather has got us all thinking about our summer holiday.

If you have a trip abroad planned then you may be starting to think about your all-important beach look. This is why today, we explore a few make-up tips for those wanting to apply make-up before heading to the seaside.


The summer months are all about letting your skin breathe, ditching the heavy foundation for a nice, light moisturiser. Though your skin may feel nice, you will still want to add a splash of colour on your cheeks. This is why you should always take a nice bronzer in your beach bag, giving your skin a bit of help in achieving that holiday glow.


Again, keeping your look natural but glam on the beach is a must. So, always carry a clear lip-gloss with you. This will plump up your lips without the need for strategic lip lining or lipstick blending. While we have suggested a clear gloss, glosses with a splash of red or orange also work well.

Waterproof mascara

Nowadays, many choose to have individual false eyelashes done before jetting off abroad. If you decide against this or simply did not have to time to visit your Beautician, be sure to pack a waterproof mascara. Brightening up the eyes without leaving big black smears in the pool, this really is a must-have holiday item.

So, there you have it, the three things you need to look your best on the beach this year.

If you are a professional or amateur MUA and have some holiday beauty tips, share them with us!
