Makeup and Humidity/Heat

SpinCycleSpinCycle Registered Users Posts: 724
During the summer, I keep my makeup to a minimum, but there are times when I need to look nicer. How do I keep my makeup (foundation and eyemakup, namely) from melting off?

    Have you tried/considered trying one of the mineral makeup lines? I use Bare Escentuals, and because it's a powder, not a liquid, foundation, there's no way it can melt off in the heat. I love it!
    Hair type: Completely confused: mostly 3a, some 3b parts, and even 2 in places; very fine and thin.
    Products: Elucence clarifying & MBC; CK, F/X Curl Booster Fixative Gel (when I can find it)

    my makeup stays ridiculously well with a mattifying moisturizer (DDF has one) or a gel based, oil-free moisturizer (Peter Thomas Ross has one).....im sure lots of brands have those things, but those seem to work great when the atlanta heat kicks in and my foundation is a must. i dont know too much about it, but i recently saw a mattifying compact powder at the Prescriptives counter...i think its a new thing. i would look into those things....the mattifying products were once described to me as soaking up the oils and sweat created.

    Oh, silly me, I forgot about that. LoL Does anyone know if the tinted sunscreen provides any blemish coverage?

    That's a good idea, Ambrosia. I'm gonna look into that. :)

    it doesn't much. i find i have to put concealer over blemishes. use a brush and only dab it where needed.
