Beating the Summer Heat- How to make your make-up last all day!


1. Protect- The first step in the summer and all seasons is to protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays. Putting on sunscreen will act as both your moisturizer and your protective shield from dehydrated and prematurely aging skin.

2. Primer- Before you start your make-up, prime your face. This creates a base for your concealer and/or foundation to stick to and not move. My favorite is Urban Decay’s all nighter setting spray.

3. Set with a powder- Locking in your foundation and/or concealer with powder ensures that it is not going anywhere. It will not slide or melt off your face once you set it with power. 

4. Set your entire face again!!- Spray a setting spray before and after doing your make-up creates a foolproof method for creating a long lasting make-up look. You can either set your skin with the same primer as you started or set it with Mac’s Fix+. This spray seamlessly blends your powders into your skin creating a flawless and long lasting look.
