Don’t Sweat It: These Are The High Coverage Foundations Celebs And Influencers Swear Won’t Melt Off During Summer

Summer is still in full swing, which can be torturous for makeup lovers. If you don’t wear the right heat-proof makeup, your face can look like it is literally about to melt off.

However, finding the right makeup that can withstand the sizzling weather doesn’t have to be hard. We rounded up nine heat-proof foundations that Latina celebrities swear by. If these products can last through showstopping performances, red carpet events, and photoshoots, then they can last through the summer heat. So if you decide to shop for any of these, know you’re in good hands.

Selena Gomez and Cardi B are fans of this heat-proof foundation. They’ve worn it countless times on the red carpet and for good reason. It’s lightweight, long-wearing, and it lasts through million-degree heat. Gomez used it to get her glowy, ethereal 2018 Met Gala look.

Cardi B has also worn this foundation on very special occasions.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper memorably wore the foundation when she announced her pregnancy during her “SNL” performance,

Jennifer Lopez’s longtime makeup artist, Scott Barnes, applies this foundation stick on the singer for her “All I Have” show in Vegas. Allure caught a glimpse of the products used, and this was among them.

And we all know that contour is a huge part of creating J.Lo’s infamous glow. If this foundation can last through the star’s jaw-dropping show, then it can last through anything.

Even though this foundation is lightweight and gives your skin luminosity, that doesn’t mean it can’t last through the L.A. heat.

Gina Rodriguez is a fan of this luxe product and has worn it on the red carpet.

Her makeup artist, Carissa Ferreri, told Refinery 29 that Gina, “loves the finish, which she says is perfectly dewy and glowy.” Again, don’t let the word dewy deter you. If it works for the “Jane the Virgin” star during star-studded events, then it can work for us.

4. BH Cosmetics Naturally Flawless Foundation

This is another Cardi B-approved foundation. The rapper rocked this affordable product during her glam pregnancy photoshoot, and there was no sweat drop in sight (we all know how hot those camera lights can be).

The best part? It’s under $10, so you can look flawless on a budget.

Our motto? If it’s good enough for the “I Like It” singer, then it’s good enough for us.

This is a beloved foundation among celebrities, so it’s no surprise that Demi Lovato is one of them. The lightweight yet long-lasting product gives your skin a radiance that other products just can’t do.

Jill Powell, Lovato’s makeup artist, swears by it.

Powell told The Hollywood Reporter that this foundation “melts into the skin and evens out skin tone, giving a skin-like finish. Because of the velvet-matte finish of the foundation, it lasts throughout the day and even performances.”

6. L’Oréal Paris True Match Foundation

Another affordable find, Camila Cabello is a fan of this long-wearing foundation. While the “Havana” singer is part of the L’Oréal family (she’s one of their ambassadors), it’s nice to know that she still opts for this product on and off the stage.

Camila recently used the product during her Havana makeup collection event in L.A.

Fun fact: L.A. in August is hot AF, so this drugstore foundation must be well worth the under-$10 price tag.

7. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Matte Longwear Foundation

Fenty Beauty has changed the beauty game so much that it would be crazy not to have it on this list.

Aside from its inclusive shade range, this matte, long-wearing foundation lasts through just about anything.

And it’s no surprise that “Orange Is The New Black” star, Dascha Polanco is a fan. The actress has worn this countless times, and it’s honestly a no-brainer as to why.

8. Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Becky G and Natti Natasha have worn this foundation numerous times, especially on the red carpet, during interviews, and live performances.

This full-coverage foundation will hide discoloration while still giving your skin luminosity.

Forget The ‘Sexy’ Costume And Dress Up As 2019’s Most Talked-About Mystical Creature: A Mermaid

Forget The ‘Sexy’ Costume And Dress Up As 2019’s Most Talked-About Mystical Creature: A Mermaid

We’re all a little basic sometimes. And don’t get me wrong, I love a quick costume that I can pick up at a local Forever 21 as much as the next girl. But we all know the costumes that get overdone year after year; the witch, the sexy nurse, the black cats, the angel… they’re just straight-up basic. So how about this year you try something that doesn’t feel outdated or boring? Like a mystical creature from the depths of the sea.

2019 has been the year of the mermaid, so why not channel your inner sea-princess this Halloween?

2019 has been the year of overhyped mermaids. From the wild reactions people had to Halle Bailey playing Ariel in The Little Mermaid’s live action remake announced earlier this year, to the premiere of The Little Mermaid Live! —another remake of the classic Disney film to be broadcasted on live TV. What’s more, mermaids are one of Pinterest’s top costume searches, even in 2019.

So we say, clad yourself in pearls, seashells and glittery scales. You could go modern and sleek, Nicole Kidman-style in Aquaman, or classic and romantic like Disney’s children’s classic. This costume gives you lots of room to let your creativity run wild and make the mystical character your own. 

We wanted to offer some help, so we rounded up our favorite mermaid makeup inspo for you to get planning your Halloween getup:

Think 90s Mermaid Barbie doll. No Barbie-inspired makeup look is complete without Barbie Pink and Purple. For this look, beauty blogger, Wiktoria went all out with those Barbie-inspired hues. Iridescent products are key for any mermaid interpretation, so don’t be shy. Bring the color from your cheekbones to the side of your face and brows for a colorful, artful take on the underwater look.

Pearls are a mermaid’s best friend

When constructing a sea-themed costume, pearls are a must for a luxe, boujee mermaid look. Case in point: James Charles. And because we’re guessing you’ll be tired after you’re done struggling to glue those pearls on your face, keep the rest of the look natural. Maybe add blue tones to your eyes for an under-the-sea feel, and top it all off with metallic blue lips.

Yes, this looks like you need a certain level of makeup experience and expertise to pull off the technique. But we promise you, it’s a lot easier than it looks. Recreate the look of self-confessed makeup geek, Naz Rahman, by using fishnet stockings. Hold the stocks over your face and dust the iridescent shadows through the holes. Easier than you thought, amirite?

…if the fishnet tip is still too much work. Draw the scales with colorful eyeliner. Put those Euphoria-inspired neon liners to good use this Halloween before the fad ends.

This one is for that last minute invite to a Halloween party. If you didn’t have anything planned and need to whip up a costume at the very last minute, we got you covered. Do your everyday look, and brush a bit of pink or blue shadow over fishnet stockings for subtle scales. Stop by a craft store on your way to the party and glue a few pearls over your temples and forehead. Now you’re ready to go trick-or-treating!

I mean… wow. Why no go all out like makeup artist influencer @moninamua? Let that creativity run wild, it’s Halloween! Visit your local craft store and bag some sequins, paper shells, and pearls to recreate this look. 

Simple and Classic

For a more subtle and classic take on the sea-creature, get yourself a pair of seashells to cover your boobage and keep the hair and makeup natural and beachy. Add a metallic eyeshadow and matching lip for a little bit of a pop —it’s Halloween after all! Don’t keep it too boring, girl.

The artsy take

This is for the gals that want a less literal costume. Create a wave-inspired effect across your face and add touches of glitter to evoque a sense of bubbly rippled-water.

Extra Extra

If “Go hard or go home” are words you live by, then this level of commitment to a theme is for you. Make a statement with pearls, a whole crown, a wig, blue body paint and purple lips. Then proceed to cash that ‘Best costume of the night’ prize, you earned it. 

Dead mermaid bc Halloween, duh!

The occasion calls for a costume, but also for scary vibes —it is all hallows’ eve after all! So if you’re looking for a dead-something or another, add some fale blood and under-eye bags to your mermaid look, et voila! You’re welcome. 

5 Makeup Looks From Your Favorite Telenovelas That Look Just As Fire Now As They Did 15 Years Ago

5 Makeup Looks From Your Favorite Telenovelas That Look Just As Fire Now As They Did 15 Years Ago

Canal de las Estrellas

Telenovelas are life. For a lot of us, these daytime shows were a part of our lives since childhood, and let’s face it, every time we visit mom or abuela, even now, we’re bound to gather around the TV and watch the drama du jour unfold. But it’s not just about the drama though, it’s the sex appeal, the glam, the over-the-top costumes and mansions —and the galán.

These daytime soaps are the perfect blend of beautiful people, intensely physical scenes and the lyrical drama of the Spanish language in all its romantic splendor.

Telenovelas are more than just drama, for a lot of kids these shows were a source of fashion and style growing up.

But Telenovelas aren’t necessarily just about love and lust, they’re a source of trends of both beauty and fashion. There’s a reason why the cliché about Latina women being glamorous at all costs, is alive and well —it’s a major unspoken theme in just about every piece of Latin-American pop culture. 

There are so many things these shows teach us about makeup. There’s always a protagonist —who might be a little passive and a goody-two-shoes. There’s the evil antagonist —probably a bat-shit crazy evil lady. And then there’s the love interest —a wildly good-looking human, who most of the time happens to be a millionaire; and they all have their own, unique makeup looks that set them apart. The greatest thing about all of them though is that these dramatic characters weren’t just people we watched on the show, for most of us Latinx growing up watching them, they served as our first source of fashion and beauty inspiration. They all had their signature looks and you’d be lying if you said you were never inspired by Mia Colucci’s pink-hued glittery glam or Belinda’s masterful Silvana Del Valle and her signature red hair and pigtails.

So, are you a good girl, with a protagonist-worthy glow and perfectly coiffed hair? Or a bold, red-lipped bad girl? No matter who you want to channel today, Telenovelas have looks for everyone. So we went ahead and rounded up our favorite Telenovela glam looks that you can recreate in 2019 and will look just as fire now as they did way back then:

1. Mia Colucci from Rebelde

The rich and popular but very spoiled Mia Colucci aka. Mexican Regina George, was a style icon for every Telenovela-watching teen in the early 00s. We chose her makeup because it’s very simple, dewy and glowy, basically the original Glossier no-makeup makeup look. Recreate the shimmery pink eye shadow look with Lime Crime’s iridescent Diamond Dew shadow in Rose Goals.  Go crazy with your highlighter and blush, we recommend Fenty Beauty’s Killawatt highlighter in Wattabrat for a pink shimmer or in Lightning Dust/Fire for a more pearlescent finish.  Finish off the look with a pink lipgloss, we’d go for the most iconic pink gloss of 2019, Nars’ Orgasm.

2. The queen of evil herself; Rubí

Of course, we had to include the baddest of them all, the original gold-digger Rubí. This bombshell’s glam is nothing short of iconique. The bouncy hair, the full lips, and perfectly delineated eyebrows…swoon. We were almost more obsessed with her than we were with heartthrob Sebastian Rulli who played galán de galanes, Héctor Ferrer. The beautiful anti-hero’s makeup look was just as trendy in 2004 as it is now in 2019 —fifteen years later! The red lip, wispy lashes, dark brows, and perfect complexion are every beauty vloggers’ dream. So to do it yourself we say, you can’t go wrong with the classic Ruby Woo lippy for that crimson-red Rubí pout (it does carry our heroine’s name after all). Sculpt your brows with cult favorite Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Dip Brow Pomade. And obviously go crazy with the falsies —blow-out strongly encouraged.

3. Marimar – Costeñita soy, con mis abuelos crecí yo.

Marimar was the story of a poor girl who lived by the ocean with her grandparents. She was sun-kissed, her hair had the perfect beachy waves, she was basically a beautiful Latina mermaid and we stan. Yes, granted, her makeup didn’t require much production —this character might’ve been the very precursor of the beachy-makeup trend way back in 1994. To get her mermaid-worthy hair, a Surf Styling Cream which adds texture and gives you that salt-water wavy finish would do wonders. Add a dark, copper-hued bronzer to ace the beach girl tan. And for the lips? Choose a matte, velvety lipstick to get the classic 90s nude lip, may we suggest Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick in the shade fuel? You won’t regret it.

4.  Jade from ‘El Clon’

Jade was every Latinx kid’s favorite middle-eastern beauty growing up, her and fellow gem-stone babe Jasmine, but we’re not focusing on Disney here. The Brazilian Telenovela ‘El Clon’ had all the best elements of the genre, love triangles, twins separated at birth, evil villains, lots of eyeliner, genetic experiments —nope, not kidding— and it all took place in the beautiful land of Morocco, needless to say, there was a lot of kohl involved. We loved the over-the-top styling, and even more over-the-top makeup looks on Jade. 

Trying to recreate her signature eyeliner might be complicated, to say the least. But with a lot of patience and a few Q-tips, we’re sure you’ll get there. Give it a go with a highly-pigmented and super precise pencil, Le Crayon Khôl eyeliner from Lancôme, might be your best ally to achieve a similar shape to the one Jade wore most of the time. For the rest of the look, she always wore natural tones, so add a dark brown eyeshadow on your lids and finish off with a matte nude lipstick of your choice. 

5. Soraya Montenegro from María la del Barrio

“¿Qué haces besando a la lisiada?” has turned into the meme of an entire generation. Naturally, whenever there’s a conversation about Telenovelasevil mistress Soraya Montenegro simply must be involved. There will never be a more iconic villain than the woman who bitch-slapped an innocent girl in a wheelchair and murdered the sweet old lady who took care of la lisiada. 

Soraya sported the most perfect 90s hair flippin’ blowout there’s ever been, so we can’t recommend anything other than an appointment at the nearest hairstyling salon to emulate the look. As far as makeup goes, you have to choose an earth-toned lipstick like a deep brown or a warm terracotta like NYX’s velvet lipstick in the shade Berlin to get the super-villain pout. Add some statement clip-on earrings and a lot of sass, and you’re ready to kick some ass.
