With the temperatures at a record high and humidity off the charts, make sure makeup stays put with helpful sweat-proofing tips from Joanna Schlip (pictured to the left), Physicians Formula celebrity makeup artist.
Her A-List clientele include well-known stars such as Eva Longoria, Scarlett Johansson, Ellen Pompeo, Laura Linney, Hilary Duff and Sheryl Crow.
Here are just a few helpful tips to make your summer a little bit easier…
Antiperspirant on your face?
When Joanna’s clients are on set, sweating under hot lights for hours, it is next to impossible to have makeup stay put. To keep her A-List clients sweat-free, Joanna came up with a clever trick that is ideal for all women in the thick of summer: Schlip applies a clear, solid antiperspirant before applying makeup. Focus on applying it to areas like the upper lip, forehead and hairline to fend of sweat and maintain a matte appearance throughout the day so makeup doesn’t slip off.
Mineral makeup – won’t slip off like liquid!
Aside from imparting a natural look and offering an ultra-gentle formula for breakout-prone or sensitive skin, Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Foundation (image attached) is sweat-resistant making it the ideal choice for your summer foundation. Silicones help to form a protective barrier on the skin’s surface, so it becomes resistant to sweat allowing makeup to stay put all day long. What’s more? It’s vitamin-enriched and loaded with minerals and anti-oxidants to help nourish skin.
Toilet seat covers…a sweaty gals secret weapon.
Blotting papers are a must for dabbing away sweat and oil over the course of the day, but what’s a girl to do when there is no blotting paper in sight? Use one of those handy paper toilet seat covers of course. Schlip tears a piece of a toilet seat cover off and blots her way to a perfect matte finish.
Jello?…long lasting lip color.
Rather than apply lip gloss/stick in the extreme heat that will just melt off, use a stain or even better, lick your lips and then apply cherry Jello – simply dip fingers into the powder packet of cherry jell-o and apply to moist lips for long lasting, sweat proof stain.
