Makeup + heat? Big no no. I usually like to stay away from heavy makeup when it’s very hot outside, but with summer getaways approaching, I’ve been searching for tips to ensure that my makeup won’t cake and my mascara won’t run under this heat. Here are my 5 waterproof, sweat-proof, and melt-proof makeup tips:
Raccoon eyes are never a cute look. For lush lashes and liner that won’t run, use a waterproof liquid liner and waterproof mascara. Clio Kill pen liner is waterproof with a non-smudge formula. It helps to draw clear lines that even beginners can use with ease by just applying smoothly. Once it's on, it won’t go anywhere!
The Clio Kill mascara brings your lashes to life in every lash application. Consisting of a light mascara texture this quick drying mascara will not smudge for up to 10 hours, giving you luscious lashes every time.
A densely pigmented, waterproof concealer will hide dark circles and blemishes, even in extreme heat. I recommend the LA Girl Pro Conceal because they are opaque yet lightweight. The long-wearing formula camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections. Best of all, they have more than 20 shades for highlight, contouring, and concealing your face.
Play off the heat and use a cream-based blush and a cream eyeshadow instead of powder versions. Cream products give you a nice, natural looking glow and they won’t get cakey. Nabi Mousse Blushes are great because they give you a lightweight silky flush of color on your cheeks, are easy to blend, and have a buildable coverage.
Liptints will deliver longer lasting color with no sticky residue. They hydrate the lips and keep them stained for hours. Try J Cat Liptitude 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain from every day nude tones to red-carpet-ready chic red. They contain mineral- based skin conditioning emollients that will hydrate your lips but still with intense color.
Mists are the fastest and most convenient way to refresh. I love It’s Skin Pure Moisture Mist because I spritz the product onto my face and I instantly feel a cooling sensation on my skin. It absorbs any oiliness on my t-zone and also prevents my makeup from moving around during the day. Blotting paper is also an excellent option to keep inside your purse. If you start to sweat, piling on more powder will only make you look cakey.
