Maybe you’re trying to do your face while you dash from the gym to your desk. Maybe you live in a delightfully tropical climate (jealous, us?!). Or maybe your face sweats off makeup like a champion as soon as summer starts.
No matter the reason, we all need a little help keeping our makeup where it’s meant to be (not sliding off our faces and into our cocktails or onto our keyboards). If you find your meticulously applied makeup is melting faster than a Bubble O ’Bill on a 35°C day, it’s time to bring in the big guns.
For those who have previously fallen victim to the summer sun or an unplanned sweat session, you’ll know that smudged eyeliner, high-beam shine (not glow) and melted, patchy foundation are just a few of the side effects. Now’s the time to invest in budge-proof, melt-proof and shine-minimising products that go the distance.
