Warm weather will be here soon. Don’t get stuck with shiny, melting makeup when things heat up. The best melt-proof makeup is here with everything from foundation and concealer to eyeliner and mascara. Get the look you want and keep it all day long, no matter how the high the mercury rises.
Nothing melts faster than the base makeup you apply to your face to enhance, glow and hide away your imperfections. Foundations, concealers and highlighters are the base of your look yet they melt first. For an all-day, sun-proof face check out these rock star basics to create a look that lasts.
- Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet and Matifying Foundation ($36) stays put for hours on end while maintaining a soft velvet-like finish. It hides dark spots, blemishes and so much more and is water resistant. Who can resist that?
- e.l.f Studio Flawless Finish Foundation with SPF 15 ($6) is a lightweight foundation that lets your skin breathe despite the heat. The SPF 15 will block the harmful sun’s rays and prevent skin damage.
- Sephora 8HR Wear Perfect Cover Concealer ($15) doesn’t just mask dark circles and acne but gets you through the toughest moments with waterproof and sweat-proof ease.
Beat the Heat
When it comes to color and enhancing your natural beauty we rush to blush and eye makeup. Look for water-resistant or waterproof eyeliners, mascaras and eye shadows that won’t run, fade or smudge during the day or night. As for blush use a gel that acts like a mild stain. If you can’t part with your cream blush then apply it first and under your foundation to help it stay throughout the day.
- Cargo Water Resistant Blush ($26) is a light formula that goes on like a cream but stays put for hours on end without fading.
- L’Oréal Infallible Eye Shadow ($7.99) offers maximum color with high pigment and binders that coat the eyelid and hold fast. This blendable shadow is sweat proof, waterproof and crease-proof.
- Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara ($20) creates thick lashes with lots of volume while resisting smudges all day. It’s basic and versatile making it stand out amongst the crowd.
