As the temperatures really start to heat up, we are preparing ourselves for the Season of Sweat. If you live anywhere like NYC, air conditioning is a luxury and walking in the sweltering heat is often inevitable. Which bring us to our next point: makeup. There is nothing worse than getting to the office to catch your reflection in the elevator and see melted off eyeliner and streaking foundation. Prep your kit with makeup that won’t move with our favorite products that’ll withstand even the hottest of months.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
This fade-, melt-, crack-, and run-resistant liquid liner will not only make you say “goodbye” to dreaded raccoon eyes, but will also help you to draw a cat eye perfectly with the precise brush.
