Trade in your full-coverage foundation for Quo Optical Illusion Concealer, $15, using it only where you need it. The creamy, nongreasy formula brightens the area under your eyes and covers blemishes. Plus, there’s a built-in chamber that holds yellow-toned mineral powder to reduce any redness.
There’s a difference between looking blushed and looking flushed in warm weather. Dab a creamy pink blush such as Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Whipped Strawberries, $9, onto the apples of your cheeks with your fingertips to lessen the risk of streaks.
In blistering heat, your mascara can start smudging by the time you get to work. Cover Girl LashExact Waterproof Mascara in Very Black, $9, has stay-put polymers, so once you layer it on, your mascara won’t budge.
Choose a bright, smudge-able eyeliner to wear above and below your eye instead of your usual black kohl. Jane ColorSticks Eye Color & Liner in Oh Yes, $4, a fresh green shade, contains jojoba oil so it glides on with ease.
Get a natural-looking glow with Lise Watier Bronzing Powder in Havana, $26. Use a large brush and tap off the excess powder before brushing it on in a “C” shape over your browbone and temple. Next, sweep the powder along the centre of your face and finish by swirling it over your neck and décolleté.
