Hot and sweaty season is often frowned upon and is called as the make-up meltdown time of year. But it doesn't have to be. Get your hands on the right tools.
Here are a few tips from Hollywood's make-up artists.
* Use eye pencil: Actress Amy Adams' make-up artist Stephen Sollitto suggests skipping eyeshadow altogether in the summer time. So shun creams, pots and powders. Instead use waterproof pencils and shade in your whole lid.
* Find a multi-purpose product:Instead of layering onto your complexion, find a power foundation that has built-in SPF and is waterproof, says Sollitto. Actress Jennifer Garner's make-up artist Fiona Stiles says if you must add hydration to your complexion, "skip moisturiser. Just use sunscreen."
* Go for bronzer:Actress Jaimie Alexander's make-up pro Jeffrey Paul says apply self-tanner in areas you want to contour, like under the cheekbones. It soaks into the skin and won't melt or rub off.
* Primer for eyes:Stiles thinks using a face primer is "an unnecessary step". However, if you do want to use eyeshadow she suggests first swiping on eye primer to prevent creases on the lids.
