As the heat index rises and the summer keeps heating up the likelihood of melting the second you step out the door is high. And trust me, no girl wants a runny cat eye. Ever.

Living in the South most of my life I've found a few summer beauty routine coping mechanisms. Last week Refinery 29 called and asked that I share my magic tricks for staying heat suffocation free (and shine-free), even when the humidity rises above 90%. Here's my advice! Read the full article here.

"The humidity really helps to define my waves, so I don't put too much product in [my hair]. I just scrunch this leave-in conditioner into my wet hair. It helps to control the frizz and, paired with a light hairspray, [the style] lasts a few days."

Sachajuan Leave-In Conditioner, $31, available at Net-A-Porter.

"I only shampoo my hair every three or four days, so on day three, I hit it with a dry shampoo. It helps the style stick, and if I put it in a braid or a topknot, it has better hold."

Dove Refresh+Care Volume Dry Shampoo, $3.94, available at drugstores and here.

"A liquid eyeliner will melt in the humidity. So instead, I do a powder cat-eye. I add a few drops of Aveda Color Options to brown eyeshadow, and swipe it on. [The cat-eye] has a powdery finish, but it stays all day and doesn't crease."

Aveda Color Options Eye Shadow Transformer, $25, available at Aveda.

"With the heat and humidity, it's hard to keep anything on your face. So I stick to a BB cream or Glossier's Skin Tint. It doesn't feel cakey, and it will stay put."

Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint, $26, available at Glossier.

"To finish everything off, I use a light dusting of translucent powder. I love this one. It's super-light and keeps things in place."

Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder, $34, available at Urban Decay.
