Melt-Proof Makeup tips to keep you cool all Summer Long from Brett Freedman

Celebrity Makeup Artist  Extraordinaire Brett Freedman shares his Melt Proof Makeup tips!

SKIN: Use your favorite self tanner at night, and wake up with a little glow that won’t sweat or rub off! Slather it on to hide imperfections. If your worried about too much color payoff, mix your self tanner with a moisturizer for a little bit of color. And don’t forget your neck!

FACE: – Add a drop of aloe to your foundation. The new formula you’ve created will thin out and adds just a tint of color and enough coverage, perfect for the summer.

BROWS: Swap out your brow pencil or powder for a tinted gel. A tint will still darken your brows for a stand-out look with staying power, unlike a pencil.

EYES: Go lighter on your lids by sweeping on your favorite shimmer shadow with a damp brush. Wetting the shadow will change its consistency to a cream for a nice glaze that just stains the eye but will last longer than a powder.

LIPS: A lip stain works best in warmer weather. Start with a lip balm to make your lip color more vivid, and follow up with a bright stain shade. You can still apply your favorite shimmery lip gloss over but once it wears off, you’ll still have a tint of color.
