RED Hearts: Prevent Makeup Meltdowns, $8 and up

Urban_Decay-All_NighterRED Hearts are guest posts on I Heart Daily from the authors of RED: Teenage girls in America write on what fires up their lives today. Today’s RED Hearts post is from RED author Maria Camila Henao, 19, in Chicago, IL who reveals her secret for "saving face":

I live in Chicago, where the days can skyrocket right into the high-90s plus humidity, and it’s almost a given that without intervention by the end of the day (sometimes even the start), all my makeup has sweated off my face. Gross, I know, but I’m being honest.

But I’ve managed to stop the slide! I discovered one product I know I wouldn’t have made it through this summer without: Urban Decay’s Chill Makeup Setting Spray ($29, pictured). They claim it “features cooling time-release Temperature Control Technology that actually chills the surface of your makeup -- to keep it looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 12 hours.” Now, I don’t know if I actually felt the TCT action or the cooling time-release going off during the day, but I do know that by nighttime, my makeup still looked a lot like it did when I’d applied it in the morning.

Plus, this is one beauty product that actively feels good when you put it on your face: The spray is really refreshing and lightweight, not at all thick or gunky. Urban Decay has a whole line of makeup setting sprays, including the All Nighter ($29) and De-Slick ($14).

Looking for a similar effect but a smaller price tag? The NYX Dewy Finish and Matte Finish Makeup Setting Sprays are $8 at Ulta -- so you can save some money while you save face.
