The Heat Is On: Makeup For Summer


The weather is heating up, which means it’s time to switch up your makeup. Lori Lieb, Creative Director of Bodyography, has the following tips and tricks for putting forward your freshest face—like 2 Broke Girls‘ Kat Dennings and Beth Behr!

§ Make sure your skin is thoroughly moisturized before applying foundation or powder; this will ensure your makeup will glide onto the skin smoothly and not adhere to any dry patches.

§ Primer is an important step if you plan on keeping a full face of makeup fresh all day. Primer will create a barrier between your skincare and makeup, making sure the two keep working well all day long. Primers also control oil and shine, and give your skin an airbrushed look.

§ Waterproof products will help ensure your eye makeup stays put all day. Try using waterproof mascara and eyeliner for a smudge-free look that lasts.

§ Setting spray is a secret weapon for fresh-looking makeup. Spray it on before and after makeup application, and throughout the day for a pick-me-up.

§ Use a finely milled translucent setting powder to absorb excess oil during the day, but only reapply once or twice to avoid makeup caking and build-up. Stipple the powder down the t-zone for a natural and thin layer of product.

§ Invest in an eye primer if you plan on wearing eyeshadow; this will stop the shadow from creasing and will keep your eye-look on point all day.

§ To keep a bold lip from fading, layer your products. Start with a lip liner all over the lip, followed by your desired shade of lipstick. Apply two layers of the lipstick, blot, then apply one more layer for all-day color.

Beauty Advice: June 28

Color-treated hair requires lots of moisture. Try deep-conditioning tresses every two weeks.

What The Heck Is Co-Washing?

what the heck is cowashing

Co-washing, cleansing conditioner, no-poo—no matter how you say it, the idea is basically the same: giving up the shampoo and washing your hair with a special conditioner instead. Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas explains how Matrix’s Biolage Cleansing Conditioner gently cleanses the hair while conditioning. “In the first five minutes, it conditions the hair. Then it morphs into a cleanser that lifts the dirt out.” Intrigued? Be sure to pick up the current issue of Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide (on newsstands now with Kelly O. on the cover) to read the full interview with Papanikolas and get the whole 411 on the co-washing movement.
