1. Avoid Foundation.
When the humidity rises here I try to avoid wearing foundation. The more you sweat and shine and melt, the worse your foundation sweats and shines and melts. It’s a no win situation!
If you plan ahead you can build up a faux tan with
St Tropez Every Day Gradual Tan from Nordstrom.

2. Prime Time.
Use a really good silicone based primer to even out your skin tone and texture. Koh Gen Do Maifanshi color correcting primers help to both correct imperfections and keep you a little more polished and matte.
3. Define Your Brows.
Giving a little accent to your brows can create the most impact of your entire look.
Without overdoing it, define your brow with a waterproof brow product like Makeup Forever’s Aqua Brow
4. Use A Paint Pot Eye Shadow Base
I swear by a sheer coat of MAC Paint Pot as an eye shadow base plus primer, to help your eye shadow hold all day as well as pump up the color and keep it vibrant.
5. Waterproof Mascara
It’s a must.
6. Matte Lips
When your face is getting shiny, a glossy lip can make you look even shinier. Neutralize the gooey glow with a soft matte lip.
