Summer Makeup: Why You Need to Swap Heavy Makeup for a Light Look! by Susan Campbell Cross

2 years ago

Summer heat and humidity can really do a number on your makeup. That's why when the weather's balmy, I adjust my beauty routine, swapping out heavier products for lighter, weather-resistant ones. I use:

  • concealer
  • BB Cream (with SPF!)
  • mineral powder
  • peachy bronze blush
  • smudge-proof eyeliner (I love Mac Pearlglide)
  • waterproof mascara (Cover Girl Clump Crusher)
  • a light shimmery pink lip gloss

I get a heat-resistant look that's still (pardon the pun) hot!
