Melt-Proof Summer Makeup Trends
The hottest makeup trends for Summer 2011, plus expert tips on how to get your look to stay put
Summer makeup trend #8: Bold, bright cheeksThe key to getting this trendy look is all in the blending. "You don't want to put a ton of color on the cheeks," says Rodriguez. Dip your brush in the color, tap it off, then apply to your cheekbones. Make sure you use a different brush to blend it into your skin -- or you can use your fingers to blend out the harsh edges.
Melt-Proof Makeup Tip: In the summer, Rodriguez recommends using cream blushes, "because they tend to hold a little longer." We recommend Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint, $24, which comes in an array of bright colors.
