Make Your Makeup Last!

Sweltering heat and humidity can wreak havoc with your summer makeup. Foundation may seem to melt or liquefy, and no powder stands up to those little beads of sweat that collect around your hairline. A modification of your regimen may be in order; here's a few tricks will get you through a midday makeup meltdown:

1) Skip the foundation and try a tinted moisturizer. This lighter coverage will fare better when temperatures heat up. If foundation is necessary, limit your application to the center of your face, steering clear of the hairline.

2) Set your moisturizer or foundation with a loose translucent powder, this will take away shine and keep the
foundation on your skin.

3) Sparingly apply bronzer or a light peachy-pink blush on your cheeks for a sun-kissed look.

4) Use a sheer-tone lip gloss on your lips and a light coat of mascara on your eyelashes and voila'... Fresh faced and fabulous! And don't forget, blot any perspiration or oil buildup with non-powdered blotting papers. Or substitute a clean tissue, pressing gently into moist areas.
