stage makeup

Whether you're wilting in the summer heat or steaming under hot theatrical lights, your sweat can wreak havoc on your stage makeup. Make sure your look stays put, no matter how toasty things get.


1. Apply primer for an extra layer of sweat-proof hold underneath foundation.

2. Try using tinted moisturizer around the eyes instead of a heavier concealer. That allows the skin to breathe, and the lighter formula is less likely to get caked or clumpy.
