Most of us love long, lazy days on the beach and sultry nights spent dining al fresco, but the heat and the humidity of the summer months can sometimes cause our makeup to run.
Makeup artist to the stars, Kimara Ahnert, recently dished a few tips to Access Hollywood to help women avoid the unflattering effects of blurry makeup.
Ahnert suggested that active women who want to look fresh despite their busy schedules and the balmy weather can turn to waterproof mascara for a pristine appearance.
"Waterproof mascara, an old standby, has an added polymer that makes the formula stick to your lashes and resistant to water," she told the news provider. "To avoid mascara smudges on your eyelids, apply a dusting of pressed powder on your brow bone."
The expert, who has worked with the likes of Brooke Shields, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Gwyneth Paltrow, also suggested using oil-free foundations and concealer during the warm months.
Women who desire the hold of waterproof mascara, but with easy removal can turn to tubing mascara, which requires no makeup remover and slide off with simply water and gentle pressure.
