4 Ways to Prevent Hot Mess-iness

1) Start with Primer

You want a base for your makeup to adhere to so that the Singapore heat doesn’t make it slide around as much. A long-wearing primer will do the best job at keeping your foundation intact.

2) Focus on Foundation

Water-resistant and oil-free foundations are your best bet for keeping your makeup in place and your face looking shine-free. If you don’t want to use a heavy foundation, try tinted moisturisers or serum- and water-based foundations, which are less likely to cake on your face and settle into your fine lines when you perspire. 

3) Waterproof Everything

Hell-bent on wearing eyeliner and mascara? Make sure they’re waterproof so they don’t streak down your face when you sweat. When it comes to blush, a cream blush or tint is going to last better than a powder formula that might cake or get patchy.

4) Set Your Face

Setting powder is necessary for anything cream- or liquid-based so it doesn’t crease, but make sure it’s a lightweight translucent powder that won’t settle into lines. Top it off with a setting spray to seal everything in place. Try Urban Decay’s De-Slick Oil-Control setting spray ($48, www. to prevent greasiness.
