Make-up meltdown? Not on this street! It’s no secret that summer is here in Jamaica and the temperature can only be described as “Muy Caliente”. Summer in Jamaica is like no other – it is the time when people step out in the latest trends to attend popular events and it is also the time when we see make-up looks that are “beat to the Gods”.

Wearing make-up in a tropical country like Jamaica during the summer months can be quite tricky. If you are a lover of make-up and like to a have a full-faced look in the summer, here are a few tips for making your make-up last for up to 8 hrs. + beyond. 

One important step for prepping your skin and to ensure your foundation lasts all day is to use a Primer. Primers come in many different price ranges and are also tailored for your skin type and skin needs. If you have larger pores, you could get a primer that minimizes your pores and if you have oily skin, you could get a mattifying primer.



You should choose a foundation that is lightweight and offers matte look vs a dewy finish. The Cover Girl Full Spectrum Matte Ambition All Day Foundation is a perfect choice! 

They come in a wide range of shades and offers a smooth base for all your looks, its oil-absorbing and it provides all-day comfort wear. The great thing about this foundation is that it is available in liquid and powder so you get to decide which option is best suited for you.


The purpose of powder is to keep the foundation from separating or “moving from the face”. This is great as it also gives the face a cool oil-free look without it being too cakey.  Heavy, oil-based cosmetics do not wear well in hot weather and often result in streaking or smudging. In this heat, a primer is your best friend! If you are going for that "no make-up, make-up look" you can opt to wear Primer on it's own.

Setting Spray

The last product you'll need is a setting spray. Think of setting spray as what hairspray is to a finished hairdo without the sticky texture. Setting spray holds your foundation + makeup in place and can last for hours. It also prevents the foundation from smudging, creasing or fading quickly.

Be sure to purchase one that's made to suit your skin, preferably one from the same brand as your foundation as each one can be made to suit a different skin type.

Everyone wants their makeup to last all day and we get it! There’s nothing worse than being at out and about, or dancing in the club while worrying if your foundation needs a touch-up.

We have a small favor to ask. People are reading the Haute Lifestyle than ever since our recent placement in the South Florida Blogger Awards but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. We do not have investors and everything Blog related is funded out of pocket– we want to keep our journalism as fun and open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Our article takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective and voices matter – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our posts, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure.
