We are officially in crisis lockdown mode. As temperatures soar, so do the chances of your makeup melting, fading, settling into creases, and sliding off your face. So not only should you update your skincare regimen (unless you're ultra-dry, swap out your usual creams for lightweight lotions) you're going to want to downsize your makeup routine.
