Melt-Proof Your Summer Makeup

We’re setting aside our indoor activities and dreaming of our own personal beach oasis—or just a relaxing trip to the pool.

When the heat hits, the last thing you want is your perfect foundation melting right off. Lucky for you, we’ve chosen some great melt-proof cosmetics to combat those rays while still keeping you looking fresh.

To prevent your skin from the dreaded shine, choose a lightweight foundation (but don’t forget the SPF!). We love bareMinerals’ new fluid foundation, Bareskin ($29), because it not only feels invisible, but also has SPF 20.

For keeping your eyes smudge-free, we paired bareMinerals’ READY Eyeshadow 4.0 in the dreamy “The Glass Beach” pallete ($30), which lasts up to 12 hours and helps boost moisture levels to revitalize the eye area, with Stila’s Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner ($20, from Beauty Brands).

Last, but not least, pucker up for Too Faced’s Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21, from Beauty Brands) that comes in a variety of shades and keeps it’s intensity throughout the day.
