Beauty EXTRA: Beat the Heat

by | Jul 1, 2021 | Beauty Extra, Current Issue, Jul/Aug 21 | 0 comments

It’s summer in south Texas and you know what that means… capricious weather, blistering heat, frizzy hair, and makeup’s arch-enemy, SWEAT!

There are a few ways you can maintain the integrity of your freshly beat face starting with a lightweight moisturizer containing SPF. There is also an assortment of waterproof foundations, eyeliners, and mascaras that you can find at your local drugstore or specialty makeup retailer to help you beat the heat and keep your face looking flawless!

One important thing is to stay away from are powders! Also, remember to work in light layers and only apply foundation or concealer where you need it. If you are looking for something lightweight that still gives good coverage, you may want to look into Pat Mcgrath Labs Concealers, Glossier’s cream-based blushes (cloud paint), and cream shadows as they are more forgiving as they wear throughout the day.

Finally, always, always, always keep blotting paper on hand to help soak up excess oils on your face. I have also found that keeping a face mist on hand is a great way to refresh and cool off during these hot summer months.
