Rain, rain, don't go away!!

While it may be tempting to wish away weather that keeps your frizz up and your makeup drifting downward (major humidity, people), do not despair!  Also, we are in a major drought.  Just sayin'...
We have the must-have frizz-and-oil-fighters that will keep you looking like perfectly powdered and coiffed all day!

Let's talk about that hair.  Major frizz will get you down, ladies.  Here are some of the amazing frizz-fighters we have on hand in our apothecary:

-The original Moroccanoil:  Rub a couple drops of this serum between your palms until warm and apply sparingly to your hair, especially on the ends.  Frizz free!!!
-Straight line by Bumble and bumble:  Shampoo your hair with this lovely sulfate-free cleanser to reduce frizz before it begins.  Use the coordinating conditioner to further tame those tresses.  Here's the secret.  Next, combine Thickening Hairspray with Straight Blow Dry for lasting hold and volume.  Spray the hairspray all over first, especially at the roots.  Follow with the blow dry cream, then blow hair dry section by section with a flat brush.  Finish with a flat iron.

As for your pretty little faces, it's all in the primer.  Yes, even the most minimalist of makeup users must, must, must apply primer before their makeup!!  This is what separates the femme fatales from the fatally oily.  Here are some of the hardest working, most amazing primers we have tried:

-Smashbox Photo Finish Light:  It's award-winning for a reason, people.  This primer is water-based and contains oil-absorbing technology to keep you looking matte all day long.  MUST HAVE!!

-Caudalie Vinopure Matte Finishing Fluid:  While not technically a makeup primer, this wonderboy oil absorber goes right to the source of shine-- imbalanced skin.  Think of this as combating that nasty oil before it even has a chance.  Apply to clean skin all over, or just the T-zone.  Apply makeup.  Know what it feels like to go all day without running to the ladies to powder your shiny, shiny nose.
