Don’t let the heat melt your makeup away. Hollywood makeup artist Rachael Kennedy shares her tips for getting the perfect summer face in 3 easy steps.

Get perfect glowing skin with Lori Hart Mineral Foundation. It’s sweatproof, absorbs oil, and comes in SPF 28-32 to protect skin from the sun. “This is the best mineral makeup I’ve ever used,” says Kennedy. “It’s much finer milled, so it goes on smoother and you don’t have to reapply.” Apply with a powder brush and you’re done. Kennedy recommends dipping a wet concealer brush into mineral powder and applying to dark circles or spots for extra coverage., $35.


Open up eyes with Lancome L’Extreme Waterproof Mascara, which doesn’t run or come off until you take it off. Curl eyelashes, then start at the base of the eyelashes, twisting the mascara wand as you work your way up. At finer department stores, $23.


Finish off the look with a little gloss. “Again SPF is very important,” says Kennedy. She recommends LanoLip lip balm in strawberry. It has SPF 15 and a light yummy scent that moisturizes the lips and gives a long-lasting high gloss shine. If you want a little color on lips, use a pink or plum stain, then apply LanoLip with your finger. A portion of each sale is donated to the Skin Cancer Foundation until August 31st., $6.99.
