Since the sun can be very drying, keep your lips soft and smooth by using rich lip balm with SPF 15.

Sunscreen on your hands is an absolute summer essential. Hands show some of the first signs of aging, so it’s important to keep them protected as much as your face. Â La Mer Sun lotion SPF 30 not only protects your hands from the sun, but also keeps them moisturized.

If you want to prevent your makeup from creasing and caking, just use a tinted moisturizer and a concealer where you need it. Makeup likes to move around when it’s hot, so the best way to avoid that is to wear less of it. Try Nars Pure radiant tinted moisturizer spf 30 and Tom Ford Illuminated highlight pen naked bisque.

Everyone loves a nice, dewy glow but there’s a big difference between a healthy radiance and an over-the-top shine. Avoid cream foundations or anything too luminous, as the humidity will make you appear extra shiny.

For longer lasting shadow avoid using eye cream on your lids and smooth on an eye primer instead. It will minimize creasing and create a base for the shadow to last longer. Apply your regular pencil or cream liner and then use a small angle brush to press dark shadow over the liner to set it for longer wear.

There are a lots of amazing long-wear beauty products out there these days. Invest in a good waterproof mascara, or if you’re blond, get your eyelashes tinted.
