Meltproof Summer Makeup

Rucuss staffSeptember 11, 2011

In a perfect world makeup would remain in place during humid weather. Many cringe at the thought of foundation running down their faces.

Well, makeup artist Jackie Gomez has a few tricks up her sleeve. Gomez spoke with Allure magazine about ways to prevent the disastrous effects of the summer heat. She’s helped Beyonce’s makeup remain in tact under camera lights and through many sweat induced dance routines.

Add a primer to your routine

“I always use primer to help blot away oil and prevent sweating,” says Gomez, who recommends M.A.C Prep and Prime.

Try tinted moisturizer

“When it comes to foundation, less is more, so use an oil free tinted moisturizer with SPF to even out the complexion instead,” she says. Her pick: Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30.

Choose waterproof eye makeup

For mascara, Gomez recommends Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes. “It really stays on all day, and makes you look like a bombshell,” she says. And for a good waterproof eye liner, try Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner Pen. “It’s amazing precision tip helps create that perfect line,” she says.
