How to melt-proof your makeup
The UK so rarely gets a heatwave - it seems criminal to complain, but is there anything more frustrating than feeling your just-applied makeup slide away? Here's our edit of the best sweat-proof beauty products to keep your face perfectly in place.
A moment in prime
Primer is arguably one of the most underrated beauty products, and summer is its time to shine (by doing a stellar job of eliminating yours). A mattifying, oil-controlling formula is perfect for hot weather days.
Lock it down
If you're not using a product designed to set your makeup in place, prepare to re-apply your look by lunchtime. Setting sprays and powders are game-changers all year round, but in the summer they're essential. As well as controlling oily skin, they help to prevent colour from running or fading.
The eyes have it
Now your base won't budge, but don't forget to choose the right formulas for your eye makeup. Whether it's caused by hayfever or humidity, in the summer it will be streaming in no time. Always go for products that are water-resistant.
