The days are longer in the summer, which means we are wearing makeup longer too. As it is almost impossible to walk outside to your car without breaking out in a sweat (seriously), and you need makeup that will last. There is nothing worse then spending time putting on makeup only to arrive at your destination and your makeup has melted, smeared or rubbed off already. If you want to protect yourself against the 100-degree weather and make sure your makeup looks flawless all day, it’s time to upgrade a few products. Here are some of our favorites, available in the Corridor.
Warning: your life might be changed after trying this foundation. This Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation offers comfortably, non-caking coverage for up to 12 hours. It also works to soothe and soften your skin. The weightless texture makes it melt-free – and the SPF 15 keeps your face protected in the sun!
The trick to long lasting, smudge-free eye shadow is to start with a great primer. This eye shadow primer from Too Faced locks down eye shadows while intensifying color for perfect eyes that are crease-proof, fade-proof and smear-proof for up to 24 hours. No matter what eye shadow color or brand you use, this primer will help it go on smoothly and last all day in the heat.
Liquid lipstick is very popular right now – for a reason. This liquid lipstick from Smashbox is lightweight, and goes on smoother than a regular lipstick – with a more intense color that lasts. No more clumping lips because this lipstick keeps color in place and fresh for eight hours. There are 20 colors to choose from, so you can get an entire collection to keep you ready for the season!
If you aren’t already using a makeup setting spray, you will be surprised how quickly it becomes your favorite product – and not just for the summer. This Dermablend Set and Refresh Spray is enriched with aloe to enhance your skin’s complexion. It also sets your makeup and makes it look fresh all day long – so you don’t have to reapply your makeup after work. All you have to do is spray on your finished face, let air dry and enjoy your perfect makeup all day long.
