Hot, humid weather doesn’t mix well with makeup. But is that going to stop us from wearing it? As if! You’d have to pry it from our sticky hands. Here’s the thing: Choosing makeup for summer weather is a careful process of elimination,—weeding out thick creams, smudging liners, and fading blush—and ultimately you’re searching for heavy-duty products that feel weightless on your skin. Maybe it’s a catch-22 to you, but we’ve found three formulas that fit the beach-bound bill.
A sweaty summer day is no time to futz around with brushes and tools—makeup application should be effortless, and Korres’ new finger-approved cheek tints make it easy. A swipe and dab from this pot formula brightens complexions, leaving a hint of sheen and luster ready for a hot summer night. Three shades named in Greek prose—Eros Coral, Philia Rose, and Chara Crimson—are also ideal to layer on lips, and complement the stunning faux-archival packaging.
