1. ) During the summer months, the heat and humidity cause my face to get extremely shiny. How do I keep my makeup from becoming greasy and melting off?
There are a few different options that will allow you to combat shine during the scorching summer heat! You can start by using an oil-free primer, prior to foundation application. Primer not only allows for a smoother application of your makeup, but gives it something to hold onto which will result in longer-lasting wear. “Oil-Free” variations will work throughout the day to combat shine before it reaches the surface.
Once makeup has already been applied, products such as mattifying gel and blotting papers will help to keep sweat and oil-production to a minimum. Dab the gel with fingertips, or press oil-absorbing papers onto key areas such as the forehead, upper cheekbones, and chin. Both will reduce any surface shine, without smearing your foundation.
