Even though planning a wedding can be stressful, when it comes to your big day you never want them to see you sweat. Heat, nerves and general stress can make for less-than-spectacular makeup on your wedding if you don’t know what to use. Want to look as glamorous and confident as red-carpet darling Emmy Rossum? We went to Emmy’s own makeup expert, celebrity makeup artist Kerry Malouf, to scoop her best tips on meltproof beauty. Kerry says:

“When selecting a summer wedding day makeup look, you want to choose products that have long-lasting effect but still look natural. The good news is that you can get long wear that won’t melt off without using a lot of harsh chemicals on your skin. I recommend starting with the Colorescience Foundation Brush in SPF 20. Its light formula remains light on the surface of your skin, giving it all day staying power with an SPF-rated formula that allows you to glow without risking sunburn.

Colorescience also makes the Blush Brush in Blushing Bride, which is a gorgeous pure mineral formula that leaves sweat-resistant but beautiful color. Lastly, you’ll need to top it off with a waterproof mascara and the newest technology is vibrating wands that coat lashes quickly and evenly. I recommend Maybelline Waterproof Vibrating Mascara to get intense, gorgeous lashes that will last through laughter, tears, rain or shine. Follow these tips and you should have a long-lasting, melt-proof wedding day beauty look that will have all eyes on you!”
