Summer is great and all, but it also means a makeup meltdown literally 10 minutes after you put it on. Here, 8 ways to make sure this doesn't happen.
1. Prime your face.
Use a primer to prolong your foundation and keep shine at bay. Bonus: Primers create a smooth canvas for your makeup, so application becomes loads easier!

2. Find the perfect foundation.
What's one thing you need to look for in a foundation aside from its shade? Ingredients. Make sure it's non-comedogenic (doesn't clog pores), and stays without the need for constant touch-ups. We're loving Maybelline's new White Super Fresh foundation for its Clean-touch Powder Technology that guarantees one whole day with no touch-ups needed!
3. Skip the creams.
Remember: you cannot skip sunblock or moisturizers even if it's hot. But slapping on heavy creams can actually make your skin oilier. Switch to lighter lotions, hydrating serums and gels, or lightweight foundations with sun protection like Maybelline's White Super Fresh which also contains SPF 34.
4. Finish with less.
Go for multitasking products like lip and cheek tint, or a balm with SPF. You don't want to layer on too many products that will only melt under the sun. Eww.
5. Spritz on a light perfume.
Spray your favorite fruity scent on your pulse points like your wrists, the crook of your elbows, behind your knees, inside your ankles, and the back of your neck!
6. Pack a tiny kikay kit.
Make sure it's light and easy to carry so you're always ready for a fresh touch-up!
7. Keep your hands off your face.
Want to know the biggest makeup boo boo you've probably been making your whole life? It's subconsciously touching your face throughout the day. Not only will it spoil your fresh-looking makeup, your dirty hands might also lead to pimples!
8. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
Drinking water boosts your skin's circulation, gives you shinier hair, and firms your skin. Seriously, why aren't you drinking it right now?!
