Remember that staying power for all makeup is even more important in warmer weather when you can easily experience an ugly cosmetics melt down. Don’t you hate it when you look in the mirror and your makeup looks nothing like it did when you applied it? Here are some tips on how to give your makeup more staying power in the heat:
Apply an eye shadow base, like the wonderful base from Too Faced called First Base, then apply your shadow product over it.
Mascara can benefit from a dusting of powder to the lashes prior to application, or use a formula with fibers to be sure to keep a good grip on your luscious fringe.
For staying power, layering powder over cream always works with eyeliners or shadows. The powder will stick to the cream texture and help keep colors true.
Keep a shadow or pencil handy in your purse for touchups during the day, especially during exam weeks or hideous long work-related meetings. Make use of bathroom breaks so that you look alive and ready to conquer, whether it’s an algebra test or a marketing brainstorming session!
