The hot summer weather brings us so many awesome perks—spending time with your girlfriends on the beach, hot summery nights with your guy and all the Daisy Duke shorts and maxi dresses you can handle. However, sometimes we aren’t prepared for those heat-wave beauty blunders that put a damper on our summer fun. Here’s how to save yourself from all the pesky little nuances this lovely season has to offer!
Help! My Face is Turning into an Oil Slick!
Step away from the pressed powder! Adding more makeup on is only setting yourself up for disaster. Instead of caking on more makeup, why not use an oil blotting sheet? BareMinerals Shine Control Sheets ($8 on bareescentuals.com) absorb excess oil from your face without removing any makeup you may have applied beforehand. Out of sheets and desperate for help? Run to the nearest restroom and tear off a piece of a toilet sheet cover. This essentially does the same thing as an oil blotting sheet. And you, my friend, have just bailed yourself out of a greasy situation!
