summer beauty: 5 products to prevent makeup meltdown

when a heatwave strikes, regular makeup just won't cut it. instead, we need to enlist the help of products that are long-wearing, will resist high temps and keep us looking fab. 

the following 5 beauty goodies were recommended to me with this requirement in mind! take a look...

Laura Geller Beauty Cool Lids are lightweight, long-wearing cream eyeshadows available in an assortment of fresh-from-the-ocean shades. they build a shimmering wash of color that cools and revives tired eyelids on contact thanks to its unique, water-rich formula. shades include Silver Sands, Lavender Lagoon, Rose Gold Goddess, Mermaid Marine, Bronze Beauty, Opal Oyster

keep eyeliner in place with the e.l.f. Studio Collection Waterproof Eyeliner Crayon. this jumbo-sized waterproof, smudge-proof liner is a multi-tasker! it not only offers creamy, high wattage color that can be worn as a bold eyeliner, but it also works beautifully as a shadow. shades include Brown, Champagne, Gunmetal, Moss, Navy, Pitch Black and Purple

create glam, nude eye looks, perfect for sweltering days with the new Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio Nude Looks Collection in Natural Nude or Warm Nude. they're 100% waterproof, high performing and high in pigment concentration for intense drama and definition that will last well into the night.

if its gorgeous arches you crave, consider Ramy Beauty Perfect Brow Wand. this waterproof double duty gel pen combines universally flattering eyebrow filler plus a pure highlighter to emphasize well sculpted brows and wake ups tired eyes.

 for face makeup, it's important to secure an iron clad "insurance policy"; this can be accomplished by way of the cult-favorite, Barrier Spray from Mehron Makeup. while designed to be misted on top of finished powder makeup to set and preserve application, this wonder spray can also be used under makeup to nip sweat and color fading in the bud.

what are your favorite and go-to products for keeping your makeup looking fab despite the heat? let me know in the comments!
