Around this time of year, fashion stories telling you what to wear to summer’s big outdoor music festivals are inescapable. But what about glittery eyeshadow that won’t melt and tinted moisturizer that won’t streak after hours of dancing in the sun? We sort you out.

Melting Lip gloss
“It’s all about creating a base that grips,” explains LA-based makeup artist Melanie Inglessis, who has brushed up the likes of Lea Michele and Miley Cyrus. “For lipstick that lasts and doesn’t bleed, apply a light layer of concealer or powder to your lips before adding color. Or use a lip pencil that is the same color as your lipstick. Draw the entire lip and color it inside. The pencil is matte and creates a solid base. Avoid products that are moisturizing and contain emollients, such as lip balm, which will slide off your skin.”

Runny Eye makeup
“Glitter may be a summer festival must, but don’t use it on your eyelids. It’s a loose particle, so you’d need a creamy base to press the glitter on. And keep away from creamy eye shadow, which will smudge,” warns Inglessis. She recommends a matte eye shadow or waterproof mascara. Another trick is to dab some concealer under the eyes: “The more your skin is bare, the more oil it has. The concealer will keep things in place,” she adds.

Streaky foundation
“Rule No. 1: use the right foundation for your skin type. If you have oily skin, don’t go for a liquid foundation, but one that’s powder based,” says Inglessis. “A face primer will give you a good base.  It absorbs excess oil and mattifies your skin, ensuring that makeup doesn’t move.  But if you sweat a lot, it may be best to not use anything other than a good SPF and a concealer or powder as a cover up.”
