Makeup Artist and Beauty Blogger, Kendra Stanton, stopped by with her favorite melt-proof summer makeup....to help us look cool even on the hottest summer days.
You'll find more great makeup tips on Kendra's Citizens of Beauty blog.
As a makeup artist, it is imperative to have makeup that won't melt under harsh conditions. August and September are not only our hottest months, but it is prime wedding season as well, which means heat and cry fest's combined. Let me show you what I use to avoid a summertime meltdown.
- Temptu Personal Airbrush kit: If you are looking for long lasting foundation, blush, and concealer, this kit is where it's at. It may look intimidating, but it was created so that anyone could pick it up and easily use it to get flawless skin that stays looking fresh all day long. This is my go-to foundation for weddings especially because it will outlast a cry-fest as much as a heat wave. (This kit comes with 3 foundations, a blush, 2 concealers, and the airbrush machine for $310.00)
- Endless Summer 16 hour Bronzer: This is a new bronzer that stays put for 16 hours by using a double bond formula. It goes on easily, looks great on any skin-tone, and most importantly, lasts all day. $30.00
- Jouer Comsetics Cream Eyeshadow Crayons: These are waterproof eyeshadow crayons that are also crease resistant and parben free. But my favourite thing about them is that they are so easy to use and are great if you are an on-the-go person. $24.00
- Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner: Everyone asks about my favourite in this department, and here it is! I have used this waterproof liner for a few years in my makeup kit and still love it because it truly won't budge once you have it on. $18.00
- NYX Cosmetics Doll Eye Waterproof Mascara: This mascara has by far become number one to me in the "favorite" department. It makes my lashes look the best I have ever seen them and it lasts all day, rain or shine. $9.99
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Genius Kit: I have been waiting for a waterproof eyebrow set and it's finally here! You just fill in your brows with the wiz loose powder using the angled brush then apply the waterproof Genius Gel over it for brows that will stay. Amazing. $24.00
- Bite Beauty Honey Lip Lacquer: This is a high shine waterproof lip lacquer that will last for 8 hours. It is also moisture rich and won't dry out your lips because it uses pure Manuka Honey. $24.00
