Is your instinct to wear less makeup in the heat? Congratulations, your instinct is right! You can still look polished, though, with this pared-down routine from makeup artist Tracy Murphy.
To even out your complexion in summer, use a moisturizer with gradual self-tanner and SPF (like Jergens Natural Glow Healthy Complexion Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 20).
Minimize undereye circles and blemishes with a waterproof concealer, like Lancôme Effacernes.
Powdery makeup and perspiration are not a pretty combination; swap your powder blush for a cheek stain (like Benefit ChaChaTint).
Eyeshadow can be ephemeral in the heat, so retire it until fall. Define your eyes with a waterproof liquid liner (like Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner) and waterproof mascara (like NYC New York Color Show Time Volumizing Mascara).
Play up your mouth with a smear-proof lip stain or waxy tinted balm. (Try Smashbox Limitless Lip Stain & Color Seal Balm, or Fresh Sugar Honey Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15).
