Summer Stay True Makeup

Summer heat and humidity can degrade morning make up, leaving your face with an uneven application as the day wears on. The key is to apply long lasting products that are made to survive even in extreme conditions.

Always begin with sunscreen! Discolorations in your skin tone can occur easily with too much sun exposure, and any blemishes you have will turn a brighter red and be even more difficult to combat and cover.

Don’t sweat it! The VL team of professional make up artists has put together a look that will outlast high summer temperatures.

Try Vincent’s super stay true eyeliner, the Pro Waterproof Pencil in Ebony, for an all look that won’t budge. Tightline the upper lash line and line the waterline of eyes.

Using the Waterproof Liquid Liner in Nerino, line the upper lash line as well. A short fine brush picks up just the right amount of liner fluid and a tiny brush lays flat against the lash line without fanning, so you can create a precise, thin stroke.

Load a Velour Powder Puff with your shade of loose powder and gently roll it onto the t-zone and under the eyes to set your makeup and cancel out any shine. Perfect Canvas Loose Face Powder blends completely into foundation and concealer, leaving no residue for a totally invisible finish.

BONUS TIP: Remember that you may need to reevaluate your usual shade of foundation and powder. Skin tone will shift slightly with sun exposure, so what works in the winter may be too light for the summer season.
