How to prevent makeup meltdown

by Bionic Beauty on 01.Feb.2009 · 3 comments

With spring and summer quickly approaching, I thought this article could give us all some quick tips and reminders on how to deal with that “summer slide”. You know how it is… you shower, put on a fresh makeup face, and step out the door. Heat and humidity smack you in the face, (or a dry heat if you live in the desert…but anyhow) within minutes your foundation can start to bubble with droplets. As much as we hate it, us ladies *do* sweat. Plus layer the heat with SPF lotions, your standard makeup and other skin care, and you end up feeling coated even if you wear just minimal makeup.

So… check out the article, and let me know what tips you have for saving your makeup during the sweltering summer!

I like the tip about not adding more powder to a sweaty face b/c it will make a big ol’ mess. I think we all learned that lesson from Ross (Friends) and his leather pants!

See now, spring and summer are sooooo not rapidly approaching in MN. We’ve got MONTHS of winter skin care left up here!

But these tips rock and so do you!

Sherry, You would think people had learned that lesson, but I still see ladies goopin’ their face up. Ick. Oh, and I spit Pepsi at my computer screen when I read your comment. :) You make me laugh!!

Cheap Chick, I so sorry… at least you’ll be ready and prepared for when you get your hind-end down here to visit me in Manatee-land. 😉
