How to Wear Makeup in the Summer (Without Melting)

As the temperature rises, your makeup needs to adjust. Some things need to be tossed, others put away until fall, and of course, what season would be complete without a few new fun things.

I always feel like I want and need less makeup on my skin during the summer. There is nothing worse than a face full of foundation melting in the summer sun or a creamy pencil smudged underneath your eye. So here are some quick tips for fabulous summer makeup that will get you through the warmest days.

SLIDESHOW: SUMMER MAKEUP

Foundation

Replace your heavy foundation with a light-tinted moisturizer. If you insist on keeping your foundation, try one that is water-based instead of oil-based so it does not melt under the summer sun.

Eye Makeup

If you can't go out without your eyeliner, try a liquid eyeliner or dip a wet slanted brush into powder eye shadow and use that as your eyeliner.

Mascara

To avoid running mascara, use a blowdryer to warm an eyelash curler for five seconds. Curl your lashes. Then brush them with clear mascara. This a great natural look for the beach and will look perfect the whole day.

Cheeks

While I love peach and pink blush, sometimes I use a powder bronzer on my cheeks, chin, tip of my nose, and forehead to give that sunkissed look.

Lips

I don't like how lipsticks tend to crust on my lips or smudge when it gets hot. Instead, try a lip tint with a sheer gloss to really make your lips look shiny and beautiful.
