Beating the Summer Heat

Having fun yet?  We are well into the middle of Summer and the hot temperatures are holding steady.  Here are a few tips to keep your makeup/makeup look in place:

1) Use less foundation or don't wear any at all
2) Try bronzer instead of eyeshadow and blush
3) Treat yourself to lash extensions (Extreme, Nova, etc) instead of wearing mascara
4) If you wear a foundation, try using a primer.  It will help to keep the foundation on longer
5) Wear a lip balm (Rosebud, Kiehl's, etc.) instead of lip gloss or lipstick
