If you wear a full-face of foundation during a hot day, then expect your makeup to dribble down your chin. Skip your normal foundation routine and substitute it for a light-weight silicone formula that will give you coverage while allowing your skin to look natural.

The L’oreal Infallible Foundation is made from a rich silicone formula and gives a matte finish. Other products you could use include: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Powder Foundation SPF 24, M.A.C Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation and also the Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup.

MOISTURIZE WITH FRESH SKINCARE: 

To keep a natural healthy glow, you must invest time to take care of your skin. It’s important to moisturize daily, especially in summer. To protect your skin from moisture loss and prevent dull skin from appearing, use the Fresh Skincare’s Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream, a lightweight cream that enhances your skins natural radiance.
