When it comes to summer makeup staying power is key. With temperatures on the rise, makeup slipping right off your face is a common occurrence. Don’t just apply makeup to bare skin – prepare your skin first! Take time to create a clean, smooth canvas before painting on the products – you’ll be guaranteed longer lasting, fresher, no-fuss results – saving reapplication time on sizzling, summer days.
1. The Perfect Complement
Setting spray complements any primer. Spritz on Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup Finish before and after makeup is applied. No need to fear mascara running or lipstick smudging. Skindinavia is cooling and won’t irritate your skin.

2. Preparing Your Canvas
The key ingredient to achieve a pure, smooth canvas for makeup is primer. Having tried oodles of primers that just didn’t cut it, I recently found the holy grail of face primers – Arbonne Makeup Primer. Even the roughest derma instantly becomes soft making applying foundation effortless.
3. Crease Free: The Way To Be
Eye shadow primer may seem like a frivolous purchase, but if you plan on rocking a smoking eye in the scorching Chicago temps then I would highly recommend investing in this product. Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube is a best seller for a reason; shadows shine brighter then before on top of this primer! With a little bit of this stuff on lids, your smoldering eye makeup will be crease free all day.
4. Update Your Beauty Regime
Are you sick of piling on the powder to control shiny skin? Applying powder around the clock to control oily skin results in a cakey, flat affect to your face. The new solution? – Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets are the only answer to removing build up oil from your face. These miracle sheets will ensure shine free skin and won’t smear any makeup when used.
