Makeup that Won't Melt

Makeup that Won't Melt

Melting, sliding makeup is NOT the look we’re aiming for, clearly. But that’s often the sad result after a long day. Add in some heat, humidity or stress and the fresh face you wore when you left home winds up a shiny, clumping disaster by noontime.

Skindinavia’s finishing sprays can put an end to the makeup meltdown. Created by Allen Goldman, these sprays set your makeup to keep it looking flawless all day long. Just a few spritzes will do the trick. The secret is in the surface-cooling technology, which draws heat from the surface of your skin and prevents makeup from sliding into your pores, wrinkles or blemishes. Skindinavia’s 10 Years Younger formula works to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and it contains six moisturizers to combat dry, powdery makeup. There’s also No More Shine, which is designed to provide a matte finish and control shine on oily and combination skin.

Professional makeup artists are big fans of Skindinavia’s sprays, particularly for actors subjected to hot lights and long days. The product recently won Bride Magazine’s 2010 Beauty Award in the makeup category. But it’s not just for the pros. “It keeps your makeup on and looking fresh all day,” says Ashley Lojko, who wrote to tell us about Skindinavia. Our own Kate McLeod, who used Skindinavia at a special wedding she attended, looks terrific (shown here with her daughters).

"none"

So…on life’s daily stage, this little spritzer is the perfect supporting prop.

Do you have difficulty keeping your makeup fresh?

    I would love to try this product. My face seems to go pale after a few hours and the makeup seems to settle in the poors and I hate that! I would love something that could even extend for a few hours more the time makeup looks fresh and dewy.

    I would also love to try this product. But it seems a bit steep at $39. Will the price ever go down a bit? This would really be a G-d send if it works the way it is supposed to.

    I would LOVE to try this product, the price is a bit steep for me however. On a side note I was sent the new CoverGirl -olay foundation and have found it works GREAT for my aging skin!! I was overwhelmed, I have tried all kinds of foundation, from very high end to the drugstore brands, and this Covergirl seems to be working the best of anything I have tried in recent years...It seems to keep my skin moisturized and looking good without being cakey. If someone were to send this spray out as a product to test and review I would certainly would be willing to try it!!!

    I, too,would like to try this product, but I'm not sure I want to pay $39 to find out that it's just a gimmick. I am fair-skinned, so I need to wear make-up daily when I go out or I looked washed out. These 90 plus degree days we've been having are murder on my make-up...even minimal make-up. It would be nice if the product really does what it says it can. I'd really hate to spend that much money, though, to find that it doesn't.

    Even though pricey...try Este Lauders Double Wear makeup. I have an extremely hard time finding makeup that lasts. Used to use Ultima Wonderwear, but for some reason they discontinued it. I love my Double Wear and using the makeup brush they recommend at Dillards saves a ton of waste so it really does last a long time! Go to their counter and they will even give you a free week's sample.

    I work outdoors in 100 + weather. I don't often wear makeup because I figure I would just sweat it off. I'd like to find something that wouldn't melt right off.

    Try MAC's FIX +. Awesome spray, really refreshing, can be used as a foundation setter, eyeshadow foiler, or even a before makeup spritz! Love it. ANd it's cheaper.
