The crazy heat requires a waterproof mascara. You don’t want your mascara to melt, and ruin the rest of your makeup! If you want to use eyeliner, choose a liquid one, and make sure it’s waterproof, too.

3. Blush

The best idea would be to use a creamy blush. Use a light shade of pink or nude in order to keep your makeup fresh and natural. If you want to use a powder blush – be careful! Choose a blush that will be in control of the oil your skin produces; if you choose the wrong blush, you risk looking sweaty.
