Woman Applying Makeup in the MirrorI am having hot flashes and with the humidity, my makeup melts off before I get out of the house! Any suggestions?

I know how you feel as I am in the same situation. I apply less makeup in hot, humid weather. I skip liquid foundation as it just feels like a slick mask. I apply a little concealer, then some matte (oil-absorbing) face powder. It must be a good color match for your skin or else it looks bad. I touch up the powder later in the day.

I started using those mineral powder foundations when I ran into this problem and they work much better for me. If I have to touch up so easy..


a quick brush. I was surprised at how good they conceal too. Maybe it will work for you.

What you can do is put on your foundation. Then concealer and powder. After that you can put on blush, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, etc. The foundation and powder makes the makeup stick.

My makeup does not last any length of time. Within 1/2 an hour, the eyeliner disappears, by noon my mascara is gone and my foundation is barely there.
