4 Ways to Keep Your Makeup Fresh in the Heat


An outdoor summer soiree is glamorous, whether it’s a barbeque, a cocktail party, or a formal event, the atmosphere of an outdoor event feels very special. However, in reality it can be a little bit tricky because of a thing called sweat. There’s nothing worse than realizing your makeup is sliding off your face. Your outdoor events don’t have to be ruined by a messy makeup meltdown, read on to learn how to make your makeup stay put while having fun!


Oil Control Primer

Start with a good oil control primer or mattifying primer to keep sweat at bay and refine your pores. A matte, oil-free face can help your makeup last longer throughout the day. Try Benefit Dr. Feelgood, this colorless, weightless balm is a TRUE complexion miracle worker! It glides on skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores while soaking up excess oil. Enriched with Vitamins A, C and E, it is just what the doctor ordered for beautiful, healthy skin!

Use Tinted Moisturizer

In the hotter months, opt for a sheer foundation by using a tinted moisturizer or water-based foundation with SPF. If you don’t have blemishes, go for a mattifying primer, concealer only where you need it, and a mineral powder. This will keep your makeup minimal and prevent cakeyness. My pick will be Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free SPF 20 UVB/UVA. This 2016 Best Beauty Buy winner is a demi-matte multi-tasker. It controls oil and adds a soft hint of colour for an effortless, natural complexion. And there you have it, a lightweight, natural foundation!

Beauty Blender

Use blotting papers instead of powder to absorb facial oil. Also, if your makeup becomes patchy, take a damp beauty blender to smooth and refine your makeup. It will make your skin feel super refreshing, too!

Water-Resistant Eyeliner

Lastly, your eye makeup has to stay put too. Look for water-resistant eyeliners and mascaras. You’ll love Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner.
