David Maderich, NYC Makeup Artist: How to look cool in hot weather?
Face When the temps reach the boiling point, it’s time to say goodbye to greasy luminizing foundations and hello to oil-free tinted moisturizers loaded with SPFs. If your skin needs more coverage, try dabbing on a touch of cream to powder foundation only on the trouble spots. As for powder, only apply powder once in the morning to set makeup – use blotting papers for touchups to avoid the dreaded cake face. Be sure to choose a translucent shade or you risk having an oompa loompa orange face by the end of the day.

  • How to pick the right powder? Mix a dab of moisturizer (it mimics the oils on your face) with your powder – if it stays neutral, you’re in business, if the powder turns orange, it will do the same on your face.
  • Bronzers are a great way to get a sun kissed look without the damaging effects of the sun.  Be sure to pick a shade of bronzer that is appropriate for you skin tone – and always matte –never glittery gold.  I like to mix gel bronzer into tinted moisturizer for a subtle sun kissed look – and don’t forget your neck – no lollipop heads allowed! Nothing is worse than spending 20 minutes putting on a fabulous face only to go outside in the sweltering heat and witness your work melt into a greasy mess.

Lips Shiny lip glosses can look messy and greasy on humid days – try a lip stain with a touch of matte lip balm.  

Eyes Steamy days can make your mascara and eyeliner run and give you raccoon eyes – not pretty!  Make waterproof mascara and eyeliner a must in hot weather.
