The Melt-Free Face

The heat can be harsh on your makeup . Even skin that isn't normally oily can get shiny during the summer. Follow the tips below for a melt-free face this summer.

//1// Toner and Moisturizer
Choose a toner that is alcohol free to help control the shine. Apply a small amount over clean skin using a cotton ball. Then apply and oil-free lightweight moisturizer. Wait 5 to 10 minutes for you skin to fully absorb the moisturizing before starting your makeup.

//2// Powder Foundation
Choose a powder foundation. Liquid and creams can slip right off your face in the heat. Use a drop of primer first, and then do one light dusting of the powder.

//3// Concealer
Skip it. Concealer can be oily so skip it on hot, sticky, humid days Add a second layer of powder foundation where you need extra coverage. Use a clean eye shadow brush in the foundation and lightly tap it on where you need it.

//4// Blot
Stick to powder versions of eye shadows and blushes this summer. If shiny spots pop up during the day, wrap a one-ply tissue around your fingers and blot.

What do you do to keep your makeup on point during the hot summer months?


  1. These are all such great tips! It's hot as all get out in Texas, so I definitely have to find ways to make sure that my makeup doesn't sweat off all the time! I usually use a setting spray to help me out, but I also have to make sure that I blot and don't rub too!

  2. Such good product selections-- the heat/humidity can really cause problems when it comes to your makeup! I love a good setting spray to help keep everything set!

  3. Love your tips! I'm big on setting spray in the summer-helps out so much in the Texas heat!

  4. Great post I try to really stick to minimal makeup especially when its hot out. I also use a primer and the Younique pressed powder.

  5. I love your tips. You share brands that I have never heard of! My fave powder foundations are from IT Cosmetics and Laura Geller...
