6 Makeup Tips For A Melt-Free Hot Girl Summer

It’s getting warmer, y’all! And as each day creeps higher and higher in temperature, we get a teeny bit closer to summer. Summer makeup is a chance to experiment with more glow, brighter liners, and blushy cheeks that make a statement. But you’ve also got to deal with sweat. It can seem hard to find the perfect balance between the ultimate face beat and the 105-degree weather outside but don’t sweat it. Instead, turn to the experts, aka the celebrity makeup artists who know a thing or two about making a good look last. “I’m definitely used to doing longwear sweat-proof makeup that still looks like skin,” says makeup artist Mollie Gloss, who’s kept Clairo and Ravyn Lenae performance-ready on tour. Below, we caught up with six makeup artists behind your favorite on-stage looks that are dewy, not oily. Here are the best tips from the people behind your favorite stars.

“Layering is the key to ensure your makeup is sweat-proof and long-lasting. Keep the layers thin and use different textures—powder on powder will look thick and pageant-y, but powder on top of cream will look glowy. When the creamy products dry down they sit close to your skin, and powder seals the deal while soaking up excess sweat and oil.

My current go-to liquid foundation is Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation, which is long-lasting and lightweight, and I set it with powdered bronzer. But you can—and should!—use this method for every part of your routine: if you apply a cream blush, set it with powder blush; set liquid eyeliner, with shadow. Every part of the face gets a double application. If you build it, it will stick.”—Sir John

“When your makeup needs to last through a hot day, priming and setting is essential. I love the Urban Decay All Nighter Primer, because it goes on smooth, feels lightweight on skin, and is never sticky. Then, after you’ve applied a sheer layer of foundation or even tinted moisturizer, lock it with a loose setting powder. I like to use the Kevyn Aucoin translucent powder on a Beautyblender or a puff, really pressing the product in for a velvety finish.

Then, I double-set with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, just to be safe. If you need to absorb sweat throughout the day, I love using their All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder for touch- ups because it doesn’t add more coverage. It absorbs sweat and excess oil without adding more coverage. It’s a must-have for those warm summer nights.”—Alexx Mayo

An Exclusive First Look At Alexa Demie’s Latest MAC Campaign

Alexa Demie is the woman who launched a million rhinestone eyebrows. Demie, who plays Maddy Perez—a sort of 2020 Summer Roberts on HBO’s hit show Euphoria—could and should be held responsible for the influx of glitter and neon shadows that have infiltrated the runways, YouTube, holiday parties, and of course, Instagram.

While the Euphoria Effect should be partly credited to the hit show’s creator Sam Levinson and makeup artist Doniella Davy, Demie did have a heavy hand in creating some of the season’s most iconic looks. The actress said she brought references to set before season one that included the lead characters from Showgirls and the forever iconic Nina Simone.

Demie, the daughter of a former MAC makeup artist, has been around beauty her entire life. “My mom used to work at MAC—I think that was her first job—and she would bring me there as a little girl all the time,” explains Demie. “I remember she had to do a 10-minute crazy editorial makeup look in front of the entire store to get the job and she used me as her model.”

So like all great duos (Maddy and Cassie, Jules and Rue, and Kat and scamming money from rich dudes), the actress, singer, designer, and entrepreneur decided to team up with the beauty brand she unofficially modeled for as a kid. Demie’s first MAC makeup collaboration launched this December with a holiday collection of lip looks, but the OG beauty brand and rising star are back again with a new spring collection, “More Than Meets The Eye.” The collection will feature 36 revamped eye shadows, as well as a Dazzleshadow Extreme that features one-swipe molten metallic color and a new Eye Brows Big Boost Fibre Gel that gives a voluminous boost to brows, if you wanted to, say, embellish them with rhinestones.

Estee Lauder Will Start Producing Hand Sanitizer To Combat Shortage

Fears surrounding the coronavirus has led to the shortage of sanitizers globally, prompting many brands to begin producing hand sanitizer in an effort to help with the deficit. Estee Lauder is the latest company to switch from cosmetics to hand sanitizer, following beauty and fashion conglomerates L’Oreal and LVMH.

According to WWD, Estee Lauder is planning to reopen its manufacturing factory located in Melville, NY to produce hand sanitizer for medical staff. Lauder’s announcement comes on the heels of the company pledging to donate a $2 million grant to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières, to support the organization’s work in treating the coronavirus in countries that lack the resources and have been severely impacted.

“The Estée Lauder Companies is proud to contribute to the broader COVID-19 relief efforts by reopening our Melville manufacturing facility this week to produce hand sanitizer for high-need groups and populations, including front-line medical staff,” a spokesperson for the company told the outlet. “We are grateful to our employees who have worked tirelessly to make this possible. Compensated, employee volunteers will support this vital, meaningful effort.”

Fellow beauty behemoth L’Oreal announced last week that it would be producing hand sanitizer for hospitals and pharmacies in Europe, in addition to halting all debts owed to them by small and medium-sized businesses due to the pandemic.

“In this exceptional crisis situation it is our responsibility to contribute in every possible way to the collective effort,” Jean-Paul Agon, L’Oréal chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “Through these gestures, L’Oréal wishes to express its appreciation, support, and solidarity with all those who mobilize with extraordinary courage and abnegation to fight against this pandemic.”
