Avoid Makeup Meltdown This Summer

Summer is my favourite season, not really because of the sun but because I have so many birthdays to celebrate and it means holiday time. The one thing I really dislike about a sunny day is the dreaded makeup melt that always seems to happen no matter how much I prep and finish my skin. 

Anyone else find it really annoying? You spend ages putting your makeup on only for it to slide down your face in the heat.I decided that something needed to be done about it so while I was away I tried the following

Don’t go OTT on products
  A face full of makeup just doesn't work in the summer and can cause your skin too look blotchy and can really make you feel as you are melting not just your makeup.

Embrace BB Creams 
I can't get enough of decent BB creams, they offer a good SPF and pretty good coverage, I've been using Clarins Skin Perfecting BB Cream and Vichy Idealia BB Cream. They are both gorgeous
Rethink your Mascara

 Whether your chilling by the pool or walking around shopping, I always find my mascara is prone to melting in the heat, making me look like a panda. How can I avoid this I thought? I'm not a fan of waterproof mascaras purely because I can never get the volume payoff. I've road tested Benefit They're Real along with a genius product from Catrice called Waterproof Top Coat.

Keep Lips Kissable: I don’t know about you but my lips get into an awful state in the heat so I am trying to wear a moistuirising lipbalm as much as possible. I have been using NYC Applelicious lip balms lately and love them. They are really hydrating while adding a lovely hint of colour

What are your tips for avoiding Makeup Meltdown?
