5 Tips to Make Your Makeup Melt-Proof Keep your makeup in place 24/7!

Whether you're commuting to school, running to your next class before the second bell rings, or simply walking around the city, you can't deny that one of the beauty struggles of every girl in the country is making sure that her makeup stays in place despite the sweltering heat. Keeping your makeup in place can be a challenge, but it doesn't have to be anymore! Below, we're sharing with you all the beauty tips you need to know to melt-proof your makeup in this heat!




1. Make sure you start with a clean face. 

Before putting on any makeup, use a hydrating cleanser, toner, and moisturizer to clean your face. As celebrity makeup artist, Mickey See said, "There's really no better base than a clean face."

2. Blotting sheets are your best friend. 

Oils will not help keep your makeup in place. So before applying makeup, remove excess facial oils with a blotting paper. Keep a pack in your kits, too, just in case you need to freshen up in the middle of the day.

3. Always set with powder. 

To make sure that your makeup lasts throughout the day, always set your foundation and concealer with powder.

4. Use a setting spray if you must. 

Powder usually does the trick to keep your makeup in place, but if the heat outside is too much, grab a makeup sponge and lightly mist it with setting spray to set the powder coverage.


5. Line your lips. 

Aside from boosting the color of your lipstick, a lip liner will also make sure that your lip color stays on longer.
