Beauty 101: Meltproof Makeup

Meltproof Makeup

 

♥ Be supernatural. Most tinted moisturizers and BB creams offer a summery veil of color, plus hydration and sun protection. Need more coverage? Try a silicone-based liquid foundation, like CoverGirl TruBlend– silicone keeps makeup from sinking into pores (ulta.com)

 

♥ Stay hidden. A densely pigmented stick concealer with a slightly tacky feel (like Revlon PhotoReady Concealer) won’t vanish in the heat like more emollient formulas. Dab it on dark spots with your fingertips (Revlon.com)

 

♥ Choose creams. Shimmer-free cream blushes (like Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush) won’t streak when you sweat. Use a cream-to-powder eyeshadow in a glimmering shade (such as Shiseido Makeup Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Mist) to brighten and define lids (Maybelline New York, drugstore.com; shiseido.com)

 

♥ Line with a pencil. “Liquid liners are too graphic for summer says makeup artist Tory Surratt. Instead, define eyes with a long-wearing pencil, like Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencil in Mahogany(bobbibrowncosmetics.com)

 

♥ Ban black eyes. Reach for water-resistant mascaras, such as Maybelline New York Illegal Length Fiber Extensions, and lash-encasing tube formulas, like those by Blinc. Both resist humidity beautifully and don’t require oily removers (Maybelline New York, drugstore.com; blincinc.com)

 

♥ Tint your lips. Trade heavy lipstick for bright stains (like CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain) or tinted balms, such as Laura Mercier Hydratint SPF 15 (CoverGirl, ulta.com; lauramercier.com)
