Mellody Vere knows a lot about looking great in the heat. With years under her belt working as an in-house artist for NARS, the L.A.-based makeup artist and self-described "hair teazer," is a master at making her clients look super hot in the SoCal heat. We picked Mellody's brain to find out some of her strategies and favorite products for looking polished in warm weather, her go-to look for summer, and what's new for fall.

What are the must-have products in your make-up arsenal for summer? What products are the bare essentials for your favorite summer make-up look?

"When stepping into that hot summer weather, here are a few easy-breezy ways to go about some fresh makeup looks. Start with great skin! Bee Yummy by Skin Food Skin Care is my favorite way to start the morning to keep a glowy look throughout the day. Plus, its super natural ingredients taste so yummy! Followed by Hourglass lightweight primer, which contains SPF to protect and preserve your skin always. Primer will keep the skin looking fresh and polished with or without makeup. 

For hot, humid weather, I typically like to skip the foundation unless it's a nice, sheer, tinted moisturizer that’s super-silky-smooth and balmy. Apply with the coveted Beauty Blender for a smooth, even finish. Throw on the Filmstar Bronze & Glow duo by Charlotte Tilbury. It’s a great kit to have to highlight, bronze, and sculpt all over the face (You can also do a soft sweep of the highlight side on the eyes). Then there’s my old-time and forever favorite: lip and cheek stain by Benefit in Posietint. Smack, sealed, and ready to smooch! Finally, … Voluminous waterproof mascara by L’Oréal gives that sexy bright-eyed look without the come down."

What's your favorite make-up trend for Fall 2015? How can one replicate your favorite look and which products should people buy to achieve it?

"This fall, give that bottom eye a little smudge. Try some soft hues of gunmetals with hints of taupe and espresso to get those sultry bedroom eyes. To get that bottom eye soft smoke, start with a sweep of NARS Mekong shadow from corner to corner, then NARS Ashes to Ashes shadow to pop some highlight. Finalize with the Hourglass mechanical gel eyeliner in black inside the eye."

 

HEAD TO TOE MELLODY'S GO-TO LOOK FOR SUMMER 

"My California laid-back, chill style always calls for my old faithfuls: high-top white Chucks because they feel great on and still have that cool factor without having to wear sneakers, high-waisted cutoff jean shorts to accentuate the waist and bum, vintage super-thin shirts/tanks (from authentic Harley shirts to Rock ’n’ Roll or animal styles), layered necklaces and a few rings to add some prettiness, and my go-to thin, green vintage military jacket in case that cool breeze comes through."
