Summer Makeup Tips from WHAT NOT TO WEAR’s Carmindy

In hot weather, switch to powder shadows and blushes that won't melt off your face like creams will.

Use waterproof eyeliners and mascaras to keep from smudging in hot weather.

Keep tinted lip balm with SPF handy to keep lips moist and soft in the heat.

Add a few drops of liquid bronzer or a foundation a few shades deeper to your usual foundation to match your new (self-tanner) skin tone.

Keep blotting papers handy at all times to absorb oil and shine.

Stay away from dark eyes and lips and opt for corals and pinks to play up tanner skin.

To apply powder bronzer correctly sweep it on the temples, along the sides of the face and under the cheekbones for a faux glow that natural contours your face.
