Tropical Makeup Tips from an Industry Expert
There’s nothing worse than your makeup dripping during a warm tropical island wedding. So we spoke to Studio Marie-Pierre owner Marie-Pierre Sander, and asked her to share her top 5 tropical makeup tips.
Whether you’re a bride, Mother-of-the-bride or wedding guest, these tropical makeup tips will help your makeup stay fresher for longer.
Tropical Makeup Tip #1: Primer is key
“Tropical climates tend to make anyone perspire more, increasing the need to use a primer before foundation. A good primer will help create a smooth base before applying the actual makeup, but most importantly, will drastically increase the longevity of your makeup.
Heck! I prime everything before applying makeup on my clients including eyelids and lips.”
Tropical Makeup Tip #2: Airbrush Foundation is Best
“Airbrush foundation is BEST. In hot, humid weather, when it comes to looking flawless and ‘natural’ for extended periods of time, airbrush foundation is definitely your best choice.
Airbrush foundation is silicone based and once it’s dry. it will no longer transfer. That means no budging at all even in the most humid weather, perfect!”
Tropical Makeup Tip #5: Waterproof your mascara!
“I know most of you, including myself, don’t really like waterproof mascaras as they have a tendency to be cakey. Here’s my solution: Apply a waterproof topcoat on top of your non-waterproof mascara. Problem solved.”
