Beat the summer heat
Well, the summer heat has finally arrived (if only the rain could stay away long enough for us to enjoy it), which means its good friend, humidity, is here too.
And as we all know, heat and humidity are a bad combo when it comes to keeping our make-up in place.
Luckily for you, we have some great beat-the-heat tips, just to make your summer days a bit more stress-free.
When it comes to foundation, it’s best to use an oil-free variant, or one that has a matte finish, as creamy or oil-based foundations tend to melt off quicker. Your pores will also thank you if you opt for something with a lightweight formula. Our pick: Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Make-up SPF 10. It has an oil-free formula, will last up to 15 hours, and is lightweight enough to feel comfortable in the summer heat.
If you’re anything like me and refuse to go without mascara, regardless of weather conditions, then opt for one that is sweat and water-resistant (who wants to step out of the ocean looking like a panda anyway?). Our pick: Benefit BADgal Waterproof Mascara. The long-lasting, smudge-proof and waterproof formula will ensure your mascara stays on those lashes and not on your cheeks.
And if you want to add some pop to your eyes with eyeshadow, make sure you put on a primer first. This will prevent your eyeshadow from melting into the creases of your lids. Our pick: NP Set Eye Primer. It’ll ensure your shadow lasts longer without running or smudging.
