Summer makeup treats that beat the heat!


Walking around in summers during the daytime feels like marching in a heat parade of about 100-degree heat! Say hello to sweat that trickles down and takes down the entire makeup with it in one swipe. To avoid this weather-worn makeup mess, stick to products that are lightweight and non-greasy, yet that work their magic of protecting your skin against harsh sun. That said, sunscreen is a must and one would commit a beauty sin by not applying the quintessential sunblock. Here are two more must-haves that will save you from a full-face beat!

The scorching sun can make even a little foundation feel like an entire cake on your face. Ditch the heavy foundations and turn to the Weightless Matte Finish Foundation by Faces Canada for a seamless look that doesn’t cake up even before the sun’s rays hit your skin!
