4 Tips for Melt-Proof Makeup

July 24, 2015

It’s super-hot and humid out! It is also the season of weddings, pool parties and gatherings where you want to look your best. The problem is that sometimes summer weather conditions may ruin even the most impeccable makeup the second the steamy air touches our faces. These are the four easiest ways to keep your makeup in place at your big summer soiree.

1. Keep it Light!

As temperatures climb, now is the time to cut back a bit on the heavy makeup. Instead of a thick foundation, opt for a tinted moisturizer. Concealer can easy settle into fine creases when it gets hot, so apply when and where you really need it. Finish perfecting your skin with a little pressed mineral powder or one of the latest finishing powders on the market to decrease shine and set your makeup in place. Setting sprays  are another alternative for brides or for anyone who needs an extra level of stay-put! Waterproof as well as long-wear foundations and bronzers are also becoming extremely commonplace in the summer months

2. The Eyes Have It!

Play it safe and save the smoky-eye for when the temps are a little cooler. For those who need added definition with natural-toned shadows, invest in an eyelid primer. These will keep your eyeshadow from #1 creasing on the lids and #2 fading away from the day’s activities.

Another alternative is to use an eyelash-enhacing or eyebrow-enhancing serum to do the legwork for you! If you have been using your RapidLash® Eyelash and RapidBrow® Eyebrow Enhancing Serum, the appearance of your actual lashes and brows will appear stronger-looking and more defined-looking on their own.

3. Keep Your Lips Kissable

For the past few years it’s been all about the glossy pout, but this year nobody wants to smooch a sticky oil slick. Matte lips are everywhere right now! A little tinted lip-balm or lip-stain also goes a long way too.

4. Important Papers

When attending any big event, always keep a little blotting paper in your bag to catch melting makeup and keep you looking fresh as a daisy. Firmly press the blotting sheet onto the shiny area to remove oil, dirt, and perspiration from the skin while unclogging pores for a clearer, matte complexion. Varieties like Tea Tree and Cooling Mint are infused with skin soothing ingredients for an extra lux experience.
