In Boston, season swaps not only signify that it's time to change out our closets but also our makeup must-haves. Warmer weather means an increase in sweat and oil production, meaning many of our favorite face and eye products end up slowly fading, muddling, and moving by the end of the day.
Help? We turned to Brian Granoff, a tarte makeup artist, who sent us three quick additions for our daily routine to make the products we already love stay strong (and in place!) all day long:
1. Before applying foundation, always use a lightweight primer. Try tarte's clean slate flawless 12-hour brightening primer -- it acts as velcro for your foundation even in the summer heat.
2. Translucent finishing powder should be the last step in your makeup routine. One dusting (with a big fluffy brush) will create an invisible veil to help set your makeup in place, while keeping shine under control.
3. Go for products that specify a matte finish -- they tend to last longer during the heat. They also help diminish shimmer and oil so your complexion has a smooth, slip-free finish.
