Tuesday Tip: How to Sweatproof Makeup(Source: Thinkstock, Art by Tanya Leigh Washington)It's about that time of year when the heat gets so unbearable, your face practically melts off the moment you step out the door. Although it's tempting to forgo makeup altogether in the summer, since you'll inevitably sweat most of it off anyway, we turned to celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass for an easy way to make your cosmetics stay put—no constant touchups required. In fact, the Simple Advisory Board member even uses this trick on her boldfaced clientele, including Keira Knightley, Ashley Greene and Katie Holmes. Read on to see how these stars stay camera-ready, regardless of the weather.

I usually get my clients ready and then send them on their way knowing they will be photographed all night long. Makeup fades, people perform, sweat, cry, yet they still have to look gorgeous at the end of the night. A trick that saves me on a daily basis is layering makeup. By applying a cream blush or shadow as a base, and then layering a powder version over the top, your makeup is set and will last much longer than a cream or powder on its own. This is especially effective in the hot summer months if you don't want to think about endless touch ups."
