Ask a Make-Up Artist: Summer Beauty


What’s the best way to keep my makeup from melting in the heat? — Cathy

A: One key to keeping a sweaty face from ruining your makeup is to prime with a mattifier that is specifically formulated to control oil production and shine.  I recommend Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish with Microsponge Technology by Paula’s Choice. You will have to order this online but you can’t beat the price and the amazing formulation by Paula. This product will last up to 6 hours controlling the oil and shrinking your pores. You can apply this product under your makeup and reapply on top of your makeup through the day with clean fingers. Another benefit of this product is that it is fragrance-free.($21.95)
