The warmest season of the year has finally arrived, and it’s time to rethink your beauty routine. Heat got you down? Aside from the obvious fix – using less makeup – we’ve rounded up the top meltproof makeup tips that will keep your look set (despite any sweat) all summer long.
To stop your makeup from melting into your sangria this summer, follow the seven easy tricks below.
- Always Apply Primer
Wearing primer extends the life of any product you apply afterward, making it a must. Apply one of our Color Correcting Primers to moisturized skin before your concealer and foundation for a smooth, clear complexion that will make your makeup stay put longer.
- Create a Lightweight Base
In the summer, less is always more. Our Moisturizing Liquid Foundation is made with naturally derived ingredients that will give you a dewy finish without the shine. Keep it fresh and layer it on in small amounts. Bonus: it also contains SPF.
- Use a Sponge
A dampened makeup sponge is the ideal tool for applying concealer and foundation so that it goes on light and sheer – no oily fingers necessary. Put a few drops on our Luxury Compact Sponge and swipe it from the middle of your face outward in short strokes. Let it set before you apply other makeup.
- Choose Creamy Formulas
When sweat and powders mix, the result isn’t pretty. Opt for a creamier shadow, blush, and lip color as it will tend to cake less in the heat. Our 3-in-1 Multi Pot comes in a variety of shades, is buildable, and won’t smudge in the sun.
- Reduce Shine
To reduce shine and set your makeup, take a Kabuki Brush and dust our multi-pigmented Mosaic Illuminator across your T-zone with a light hand. Not only will it cover imperfections, but it will also capture light and give you a radiant finish.
- Switch to Liquid Liner
Featuring a fine calligraphy tip, our quick-drying Liquid Eyeliner has a water resistant, gluten-free formula that delivers ultimate precision to line, shape, and define your eyes – it lasts longer than a pencil and definitely won’t melt in the heat.
- Focus on Your Brows
The easiest (and arguably chicest) look for summer is strong eyebrows paired with bright lips. Our Cream Brow Pencil is made from a stay-put formula that will shape, fill in, and define your arches so you can have natural-looking brows without harsh edges.
