Makeup Meltdown? We’re Here to Help.

The summertime brings many exciting things. Warmer weather. Days in the sun. Trips to the beach. While all of these might be good for your mood, they don’t always mean great things for your makeup. How do you keep your face looking fresh despite the heat? We’ve got the scoop:

Invest in a good primer – Apply a good eyelid primer (like the one pictured, from e.l.f.) to your lid in order to keep your shadow in place and crease-free. Despite climbing temperatures, your primer will act as a base that will help your eyeshadow stay put. Pair with an e.l.f. Mineral Eye Shadow for color that won’t budge.

Opt for cream instead of powder – Rising temperatures tend to have a negative effect on powdered makeup. When your sweat mixes with the powder it clumps and appears “cakey.” Avoid the mess by simply switching to a cream formula. Whether it’s on your face or your eyes, cream makeup is more likely to stay in place and look fresh.

Use lighter products – You don’t wear heavy clothes in the summer, so why wear heavy makeup? Allure Magazine recommends looking for silicone-based products, especially foundations. The silicone acts as a barrier that stops makeup from melting. Unless you’re going for a Joker-inspired look, smeared-all-over makeup is something to avoid.

Go for Waterproof Mascara – The best way to avoid smeared mascara? Choose a waterproof formula! COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara is a great choice. It prevents smudgy black marks around your eyes while giving your lashes a big boost.
