Make Your Makeup Summer-Proof

The heat is on! Summer is upon us and it is hot, hot, hot. If you’re like me, then it’s always tough trying to keep your makeup from melting off your face. To my surprise, there are some very easy tricks that will help your makeup stay put in the summer sun. Here’s what I’ve learned:

Switch from liquid to powder

Liquid and cream makeups do not like heat, and melt super easily. Once the weather warms up, it’s best to switch over to powder products. They have more staying power and some even help to absorb excess oil!

Setting Spray

What a life saver. This stuff is like hairspray – for your makeup! Just spritz a few times all over your face after you’ve finished applying your makeup and it really helps to keep everything in place. (My favorite is the De-slick by Urban Decay – $29)

Oil-Absorbing Sheets

These things are my best friend in the summer time. They absorb extra oil on our face without disrupting your makeup, so no need to reapply after you blot! (I’m loving the Clean and Clear ones – only $5!)

Try a Stain

Lip and cheek stains are a great alternative to regular blush and lipstick. They’re easy to use and stay on all day! Just apply and you’ll have a beautiful tint all day long. (Try out Benefit’s Posietint – $30)
