THERE'S a lot we love about summer…
But dealing with our foundation melting in the sun and streaming mascara from hay fever are the parts we'd happily avoid.
But this year we don't need to sweat it.
Make up artist Aimee Piper, 33, from Essex, a leading skin specialist at Vie-Derma, tells Fabulous how to keep your makeup in place during the heat without breaking the bank.
Summer Saver: Oil-absorbing serums
Wave goodbye to your primer and say hello to oil-absorbing serums this summer.
Rather than adding another layer of makeup, these serums promise to keep oil at bay while nourishing the skin.
Expert Aimee Says:
"Silicone primers can trap heat in and make you sweat more, it creates a barrier so when you touch your skin you can feel the makeup move away from that area."

Summer Saver: Blotting paper and powder
Blotting papers get rid of excess sweat and oil without moving your makeup around or caking on more product.
Not only do they work wonders for mopping up extra grease – but they're also reasonably priced too and even Kate Middleton swears by them.
Expert Aimee Says:
"If you’re in a pinch, a smooth tissue and a little powder will do the exact same thing as blotting papers – and paper tissues are always lying around.
"When wearing sunglasses, add a little extra powder to your cheekbones and bridge of the nose, and even on your glasses to prevent your makeup from moving around."
