Melt-Proof Beauty

back to Curated by Cuvée


It happens every year. The temperature starts to rise, and despite your best efforts, all that work you put into hair and makeup ends up as a frizzy halo atop of your head and a streaky puddle pooling at the bottom of your face. Looking put-together and summer always seem mutually exclusive. But, maybe just maybe, you’ve been approaching the season all wrong. With a little product know-how, you can maintain your cool—as well as your hair and makeup—from day to night. Here are our top tips and tricks to beat the heat.
      Don’t fight frizz
      …just go with it. The more heat you put on your hair, the frizzier it’ll get once you step outside. Instead, work with what you’ve got. Whether you’re starting with air-dried hair or next day strands, lock in your natural texture with Cuvée Styling Balm. The lightweight formula adds structure and definition while fighting frizz and conditioning your hair, so you can wear it down or pull it back without flyaways. To encourage even more of that sexy, beachy texture, try Cuvée Champagne Spray, which creates a lived-in tousled look that goes with summer’s breezy vibes.
       
      Prime by design
      Considering the laws of gravity and the sweat factor, the less makeup you wear on your face, the less chance anything will run. To get lightweight coverage and even out your skin tone, stick with an all-in-one formula like Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter. It defuses pores like a primer, adds the glow of a highlighter, and perfects your complexion like an instagram filter.
       
      Make your lids lasting
      A little sweat, and the first thing to migrate is your eye makeup. Wearing eyeshadow in the heat is all about locking and loading product, otherwise, it will quickly settle into the creases of your lids. Try a dual-pronged product like Tom Ford Cream and Powder Eye Color, which includes a cream base color and a powder to layer on top for the ultimate swipe of saturation that will stay put.
       
      Waterproof your liner
      Eyeliner and humidity go together like oil and water—no matter how much care you take, it always ends up underneath your eyes t-minus 30 minutes out in the heat. Arm yourself with  a long-wear, liquid eyeliner like STILA Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. The felt-tip precision point makes application easy, and if nothing else lasts, your eyes will go the distance since this baby won’t budge.
       
      Get balmy  
      Heavy matte lipsticks pool on your lips, while thick glosses can feel really tacky in the heat. Instead, tint your lips with a sheer balm like Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm, which adds a kiss of color that enhances your natural lip hue like a popsicle stain.
        
      Mist like you mean it
      Literally keep your cool and help your makeup from migrating with a setting spray. Kate Somerville UncompliKated SPF Makeup Setting Spray SPF 50 has multi benefits: It delivers a cool mist, has a mattifying finish to help set your makeup, and protects your complexion with SPF 50, plus, it’s loaded with hyaluronic acid to maintain hydration. Spritz liberally throughout the day for a refreshing boost.
