Last week for the Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel we are giving our tips for waterproof, sweat proof, summer heat proof makeup.
With summer comes heat, humidity, and melting make up. When choosing my products for a summer look I turn more to waterproof and cream products, as well as a more translucent, natural complexion. No one wants heavy foundation melting off their face, or powder products congealing into a nasty mess in the heat! For foundation I look for adequate coverage and a finish that looks very natural, dusted with only the lightest bit of powder. My favourite product for this is the Make Up For Ever Face & Body foundation. It’s waterproof and gives light, yet buildable, coverage while looking completely like skin. For eyes, it is all about keeping products from fading and migrating, so products like waterproof cream eyeshadows and shadow sticks are my go to, either alone or as a base to help powder eyeshadows adhere through the day with any swimming or sweating. Waterproof mascara or a product like the Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Top Coat are of course a must for lashes! Don’t forget sun protection for your lips, not only for health reasons but to avoid unsightly sunspots forming on your lips! I like to apply a long-lasting lip stain, waterproof lip liner or liquid lipstick, (like MUFE Aqua Lip and Aqua Rouge), and top them with a lip balm containing SPF.
