If you already have your eye shadow on, use a dry q-tip to wipe away a smudge. If you don’t have a  q-tip you can use your pinky finger to make a little smudge look like winged eyeliner or rub it in a make it work as part of your look.

3. Melting makeup

If you feel like your face is melting away in the sun, carry a blotting paper with you and blot away the oils to maintain a clean, fresh look. If you don’t have blotting paper you can use a clean toilet seat cover in a pinch! You can also try a setting mist to keep everything in its place.
