You may have thought that by the year 2013, with 3D televisions and cars that park themselves, the issue of melting makeup would be obsolete. Alas, there are some things technology has not been able to fix (yet). Luckily NYC-based makeup artist Josephine K. has some tips to keep us from throwing in the towel. When it comes to making your makeup sweat-proof, you can either prep for the sweat or run with it.#1: Prep for the sweat. First and foremost, “use a face primer that will not only keep your makeup intact, but will also create a barrier for anything to come out or in.” Create the perfect canvas with Giorgio Armani Fluid Master Primer or Too Faced Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer. Be sure to choose powdered products over liquids and creams. Powder formulas help absorb any type of wetness on the skin, while liquids and creams will emphasize that wet look. We love Dermablend Solid Setting Powder and Make Up For Ever Microfinish Powder to keep our makeup in place. Josephine also warns against anything shimmery or iridescent, which will create shine on the face.
