Fresh Summer Makeup...Beating the Heat!

Summer has arrived! And with it comes heat and humidity. Try these secret tricks to keep you makeup from having a summer meltdown…

Avoid shiny, melted makeup look for your wedding day
  • Prep your skin, after cleansing, with a clay mask --- apply to the oily regions of your face, it extracts under-surface oil producing a matte effect that will last all day.
  • For really wet areas, beading upper lip for example, use a clear solid antiperspirant under your makeup. It works on your lip as it does in your underarm blocking wetness all day.
  • Powder mineral foundations can be applied lightly to even out skin tone and provide an SPF above 15. As an added bonus, they are naturally sweat resistant!
  • If you must use a liquid, use an oil-free tinted moisturizer with SPF over 15. This all-in-one will replace your daily moisturizer, sunblock and foundation!
  • This isn’t really a secret - but it does warrant a mention: waterproof mascara and eyeshadow are a must.

The Biggest Secret to Summer Lips ... Pucker Up!

Finally, the last big secret to gorgeous summer makeup is Jell-O. Yep, you heard right! Lick your lips and dab on Cherry flavor for red stained lips and Watermelon for pink. The color will last all day long!

We tried it! It works! Remember to have someone else do it for you --- so you don't end up with a red pinky!
