Looking hot when it’s hot outside isn’t always easy: we all know that summer humidity can melt a picture-perfect makeup application in five minutes flat. To keep your face looking fresh even as the temperature soars, the general rule is less is more. Follow these easy tips for makeup that withstands the warm weather at your weddings.
Use products with staying power
Liquid liner is notoriously smudge-proof, which makes it perfect for an outdoor or all-day affair. To ensure a crisp line, apply eyeshadow first. Then, line your top lashes starting near your nose and thickening as you move outwards, which will create an eye-opening effect. Try the Lancôme Artliner in Black, whose felt-tip applicator draws a perfect line every time.
Lighten up on lids and lips
If you know you’re going to be standing in direct sun or anywhere near an ocean, forego the sultry smoky eye makeup and red lipstick in favor of a lighter, breezier look. Do a sheer wash of shadow on lids and give lips pop of red color with gloss. We like Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Berry Bold.
Embrace your warm weather glow
Powder foundation and perspiration simply do not play well together. To get more natural coverage this season, try a tinted moisturizer. For a perfectly pre-mixed version that boasts SPF 30 to boot, try Lancôme Bienfait Multi-Vital Teinté.
