Makeup Mavens Reveal How They Manage To Stay Beat All Day Long


We know that just because the calendar says it's fall doesn't mean the the weather will actually reflect that energy.

With that being said, depending on where you live, the temperatures are still hot and/or the weather gods are highly confused. It's the confusing time of year where you throw on a jacket because it's cool in the morning and then have to take it off by noon because you're hot. What we don't want is for you to have to do the same for your makeup. There are ways to stay beat with the baffling weather. From priming your face to using less makeup, we want to make sure you are equipped for whatever the degrees may be.

We got to chat with a few beauty gurus about how they maintain a good beat and this is what they had to share:

Kat's Tips

1. Hydrate and radiate. "Living in Toronto, keeping a beat all day can be...a challenge. Two things that really help, especially if you're combination skin like myself, hydration and using less setting powder. I use a liquid primer as a base and water as a setting spray and it keeps my skin looking dewy and hydrated."

2. Less is more. "As for setting powders, I try to decrease how much I bake because oftentimes I'll sweat under the heat and crease! I'll use a VERY small amount on a fluffy brush and pat it under the eyes for that bright, fresh look but without the potential for cracking."

Taya's Tips

1. Opt for a cream or stick foundation, instead of liquid. "My favorite go-to for lightweight, yet full coverage, is the Fenty Beauty Match Stix. It has great coverage but doesn't feel like you are wearing heavy makeup."

2. Set and prime. "Priming your face to prepare for makeup is always key to getting long wear. Always set your foundation and highlight with a translucent powder. When you're finished, always use setting spray. My faves are: Benefit Porefessional Primer, Too Faced Born This Way Translucent Powder, NYX Stay Matte Setting Spray, or Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray."

3. Try a bomb "no makeup" makeup look. "If you've gotten your summer tan poppin, embrace your natural glow with a 'no makeup' look. Just lightly fill in your brows, add some bronzer/highlight, a light lash, and some gloss. Throw on a hoop for a little razzle dazzle. My favorite highlighter right now is the Too Faced, "How Many F***s Do I GIve" paired with the iPanema Sunset Glow Body Oil that I use on my face and body."

Rhema's Tips

1. Use primer or moisturizer that has SPF in it. "There is this misconception the world of melanin girls has and it's sunscreen isn't something that should be in our skincare arsenal, which couldn't be further from the truth. Currently I'm using the UrbanSkinRX Dermshield Ultra matte primer and pairing it with OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright primer/moisturizer."

2. Use a powder foundation instead of liquid foundation to get the effects of a full beat but lightweight and less likely to melt. "Tinted moisturizers, may also work but I prefer the coverage that powder foundations provide. Currently I'm using MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation in NW43. Too Faced also just dropped a powder foundation line I recommend as well. If you want a tinted moisturizer I recommend NARS as the my go-to brand."

3. Blot before you start sweating. "Blotting papers are your friend. Going back in with powder or more product to cover up the sweat or accumulating oil, starts to just add more makeup to your skin to melt more. Blotting papers remove the oil/sweat and keep your face as is. Not removing or adding more product. Overall, the theory is less is more but you can make less look like a full beat without the work or the melt, by just switching up a few things in your routine."

​Meet The Sex Technique That's Turning Oral Up Several Notches

I didn’t think much could get better about the blissful high that comes with oral. That was until I came across the Kivin Method.

As someone who was never a huge fan of oral sex and could largely take it or leave it, I must admit that I have started to come around in recent years. With my head thrown back, hands gripping sheets and hair, and toes curling from the intense sensations of the work my partner is putting in at my center, I now give myself over to the pleasurable act wholly and unapologetically.
