Facing Summer - Melt proof makeup!

Hey everyone! It's Heather:) I'm going to give you a sneak peek of our Summer 2012 beauty article. You will definitely want to read the whole article when it comes out on June 15th! Most of us LOVE the summer time! How can you not?! All the sunshine, beach getaways, playing (yes playing!) outside, and just plain fun!! One of the biggest problems of the awesome summer is the summer heat causes our makeup to melt right off our faces. It's been a constant battle for me for years! So, when I approached our Beauty Contributor, Kim Alicea, about this problem she was on board with helping women everywhere find great solutions no matter what their budgets are. Below is a sneak peek! Enjoy and be sure to check out the full article on June 15th in our summer issue at!

    Now let’s talk makeup! Although you may feel you don’t want to wear a lot of makeup through the summer months, it is necessary to wear a few extras if you want your makeup to survive the day.  Anyone wanting a flawless face that will last all day or night (Brides in particular), these tips are for you!

Foundation – Choosing a foundation based on your skin type is the key.  Long wearing foundations are very popular these days but don’t get caught up in the advertising. Everyone’s skin is different and it’s important to find what’s right for you. Dry skin needs hydration which typically comes with an oil based foundation, while oily skin needs a mattifying formula typically found in oil free formulas that incorporate powders.

Foundation:  1. CHANEL Perfection Lumiere $57
                       2. Make Up Forever HD Invisible Cover $40
                       3. L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Makeup $14

Avoid cream blushes and shadows, they will separate and require maintenance.

Use an eye shadow base (primer).
