Always do your hair before your makeup. The heat of the blow dryer may melt your makeup and wipe out all your hard work.
The summer months make you sweat profusely. So choose a clever hairdo. Comb your hair off your face and tie it into an elegant chignon or a high bun.

Sweat proof concealers, designed specially for the warm months, stops your makeup from melting away. Besides they also provide cover from pimples, dark spots and dark circles.
Apply concealer on the entire upper eyelid and thereafter dust on some loose powder. This will help your eyeshadow adhere better to your skin and make it long lasting.

You may not be the crying type but do opt for waterproof mascara.
Your blush will be the first thing to wear off with the heat. Make use of a creamy blush first and dust some powder blush on top of it.
For the blush to stay longer, apply cheek stain followed by powder blush.
