5 Tips for No-Melt Makeup

Fake a Glow

Instead of applying terra-cotta bronzer over moisturizer, start by stroking a gel bronzer across your forehead and cheekbones and down your nose. Then dab on lotion and blend for a dewy, sun-kissed look, says Wende Zomnir, creative director of Urban Decay and Hard Candy cosmetics.

Keep Yours Cool

Stash your tinted moisturizer or foundation in the refrigerator. When you smooth it on, the heat from your face will melt it in -- you'll look like you have naturally perfect skin, says Jane Ford, cocreator and cofounder of Benefit Cosmetics.

Get Bright-Eyed

Pull the focus upward by brushing lids with a single shade of tropical-colored powder shadow, like violet or peacock green. To add drama for evening, use a pencil to line along upper lashes and smudge, says Candace Corey, international makeup artist.

Stay Cheeky

Use a cream formula instead of powder, which will streak if you sweat, says Leslie Lopez, celebrity makeup artist for Jergens.

Make It Seamless

Avoid obvious-looking makeup by wearing the same shade -- such as pink or peach -- on eyes, cheeks, and lips. You'll look like you, just prettier, says Jeanine Lobell, celebrity makeup artist and creator of Stila Cosmetics in Los Angeles.
