Use baby powder.

Added bonus: It also reduces acne and pimples by drying out pores.

Opt for a stain.

Lip stains and blush stains, have lots of pigment, making them long-lasting and color concentrated. Look for a stain that also hydrates, as some can leave lips and skin feeling dry.

Primers help makeup stay in its intended place. Some primers can do wonders for skin, too. Take BB cream for example, which does the job of not only a primer, but of a moisturizer, sunscreen, skin treatment, concealer, and foundation all in one!

Go waterproof.

Waterproof makeup won’t budge no matter where your summertime activities take you. From diving into a pool to crying at a wedding to being caught in a rainstorm, with waterproof, you’re set. When choosing a waterproof foundation, opt for one with added SPF so the summer rays won’t burn your skin.
