This is how you protect your beat in the heat!
If you dare to wear makeup when the weather reaches unbearable temperatures, don’t let your handy work go in vain. Avoid a makeup meltdown by locking in your beat with a primer. Before applying foundation and concealer, it’s critical to prep your face with a matte base.
Matte primers are our go-to over other formulas because they help tighten pores and eliminate excess oil, all while withstanding the heat and humidity. They also provide a smooth canvas for flawless coverage.
