As temperatures rise, the last thing you want is a makeup meltdown! Expert tips to beat the heat!

Here, makeup artist Jose Parron answers top questions on how to stay fresh & pretty all summer long!

Q: Is it safe to wear makeup at the beach?

A: As long as your makeup has a sufficient SPF for the time you are spending at the beach or pool, it is safe to wear makeup in the sun. For extended stays, you might want to consider a higher SPF under your foundation.

Q: How can I assure that my makeup stays on during humid weather?

A: Using a foundation like Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Foundation SPF 20, will ensure that you have a lightweight texture product that can perform in any extreme situation—not just when it’s humid, but even while perspiring.

Q: I have a birth mark on my leg, what is the best way to cover this on the beach?

A: Marks on the body are a concern for many, particularly at the beginning of the summer when people feel pale and blotchy. A quick application of Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15 can help conceal your birthmark while covering other problem areas, such as bruises and veins. Simply match the Leg and Body Cover to your skin tone and then apply it to already moisturized skin in short up and down strokes, let dry for five minutes and set with Dermablend Setting Powder.

Q: How can I maintain a sun-kissed look without exposing myself to the sun?

A: Many of my clients like the look of a healthy glow, but fear the risk of exposing skin to the sun’s harmful rays. Using a sheer application of Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15, in a shade darker than your own skin tone, will give the illusion of sun-kissed legs, while helping to evenly cover imperfections. Then apply Dermablend Setting Powder, let it set for a few minutes, and you can dance or workout without the fear of it coming off or staining your favorite shorts or sundress.
