Heat resistant makeup tricks!

Don't you wish your makeup could look as great as it does in the morning all day!?
Keeping your makeup in place throughout the day can be hard, especially during the summer. Here are a few simple tricks that will keep you from having a makeup meltdown!

Apply your makeup as usual. Be sure to use a primer on your lids to hold you eyeshadow and liner in place  (I like primers from MAC and Urban Decay) After applying your foudation or tinted moisturizer, lock that in with powder.  Always remember, anything liquid that goes on your face must be set with a powder! I love makeup forever's translucent powder.
It makes your skin look velvety smooth while holding your foundation in place. If you get oily throughout the day use  blotting papers instead of applying more power. This way your makeup won't end up looking cakey.

Now here's the kicker... I love to use this on all my brides. The magic potion is called Model in a Bottle. It's resistant to heat, humidity, tears, and water! What more could you ask for! I use it on myself if I have a long busy day with no time for breaks and touchups. This is a must. You will love it! Just give yourself three sprays and you're good to go!

  1. i love model in a bottle....only bad thing is if it doesnt spray right (big drops instead of fine mist) you will end up with spots on your face that look like you got splatter painted with makeup. this happened to me one day but i didnt realize i had been walking around looking like a bad jackson pollack painting until the end of the day!! yikes
