During the hot summer months, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the heat. Keeping your face looking flawless can be a challenge as the temperature climbs. Fortunately there are a few simple makeup tricks to help you stay fabulous when the heat is on.

Protect Your Skin
Keep your skin moist, healthy and protected with a foundation or tinted moisturizer that contains SPF. These skin savers will keep your skin protected and hydrated while evening out your skin with a beautiful flawless finish. Try: LORAC Anti-Aging SPF Breakthrough Performance Foundation. Don’t forget about your lips, they need to be nourished and protected too! Find a lipstick that’s creamy and moist with SPF and comes in great summer shades like coral, rose, pink and bronze.

Picture-Perfect with Powder
During the hot summer months we can get a little too shiny–powder helps your makeup stay-put, takes down the shine on your forehead, nose and chin and gives a silky-smooth finish. Powder is great for touch-ups on-the-go; it instantly makes your skin look fresh and flawless!

Long-Lasting Liner
Go from day-to-night with a long-lasting, water-resistant eyeliner. For day, add a thin line of black eye liner along top lashes for a smudge-proof, budge-proof, smooth, clean line that lasts in the summer heat. For hot steamy nights, wing your eyeliner with a flick at the outer corner for a sizzling summer cat eye!
