Here in Chicago finally have the hot weather we have been dreaming about, but there in lies the question...how can makeup still be wearable at the great summer festivals and beaches? While it is quite obvious that even the most melt proof makeup isn't perfect, you can still find products that can help you stay beautiful all summer long. Here are some ways that you can

Go oil-free-For summer use, strive to get oil free products. This will help you beat shine and keep what makeup you wear to avoid just sliding off. Look for oil free moisturizers and sunscreens like Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42 for Face. You also might try oil absorbing sheets to reduce oil and sweat during the day.

Wear waterproof- You may have been constantly renewing your supply of your eyeliner and mascara, but summertime is a great time to try out waterproof products. Makeup Forever's Aqua Collection is a new take on waterproof lip colors, eyeshadows, mascaras and more. You may even stick to waterproof products even after summer ends.

Use a powder-A powder can help absorb excess sweat. You can use an application pad or powder brush. Palladio Oil Absorbing Rice powder will get rid of oil in a flash. Keep it with you when you are on the go to make sure you look oil free.
