Save Face! The Best Melt-Proof Makeup

When the mercury skyrockets past 80 degrees, applying your regularly scheduled makeup becomes its own special project. Textures and color fastness have to be taken into consideration, lest the results resemble the cosmetic equivalent of layering butter on top of extra-virgin olive oil. Similes be damned: To paraphrase the musical stylings of Martha and the Vandellas, it’s not like a heat wave — it IS one. Here, our picks to keep your beauty products’ effects from exiting stage left.
