Well, it looks like it’s finally Summer! I’ve been enjoying the heat for several days now and wishing I was sitting poolside instead of working. Looking good in the hot heat of Summer can be a challenge though.
If you’re looking for ways to beat the heat this Summer, we’ve got some awesome tips for you from Diorshow Celebrity Makeup Artist, Ricky Wilson. Ricky’s extensive career as a makeup artist has included work on fashion shows, print publications, celebrity clients and Socialites. He has contributed to articles in Allure, Shape, Essence, Life & Style, Teen Vogue, People, Us Weekly and Star and his work has appeared on the pages of Harpers Bazaar, Vogue, Brides, Lucky, Elle, Allure Town and Country and Modern Bride.
Read below as this expert offers some beauty tips to keep you looking both pretty and cool when the temperature rises:
“Makeup that holds up in high heat situations is never thick or textured. Less is definition more is when you know you are going to sweat. Remember to always blot before powder to eliminate makeup build and creating texture”.
Here’s what he recommends:
DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation: “Sweat proof and transfer resistant. Since it is so light weight and breathable it gives you coverage without breaking down in high heat and humidity.”
Dior Waterproof Crayon Eyeliner in Trinidad Black: “Perfect for lining through eyes. It’s silky smooth and goes on with ease but won’t budge once it sets.”
Dior Eye Show and Dior Pro Cheeks:
“These are products that are crease-proof and water-resistant so YOU can do your eyes and cheeks
without worrying about them moving when your skin heats up.”
My favorite Dior product is Dior DiorShow Iconic Extreme Waterproof Mascara in Extreme Black. I bought it on Sephora.com on a whim and ended up loving it. Stays put all day, through sweat, rain, and poolside activities. It’s my go-to mascara for Summer and is a favorite in my makeup arsenal.
