KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The summer months offer up a slew of beauty challenges ranging from frizzy hair due to humidity to sticky lip gloss melting in the heat.

Stylist Joey Figueiredo answered questions left on FOX 4's Facebook page about how to look put-together in the hot weather.

Figueiredo said the best practices to avoid makeup meltdowns include using an oil-free moisturizer, an oil-controlling primer, a setting spray and pressed powder.

"A pressed powder is going to give you more of a matte sheen to your skin, instead of a loose mineral power which is going to buff your skin," he said.

The best way to address frizzy hair is to make sure to lock in as much moisture as possible early, he said. Knowing your hair type is important, too.

"We have to actually understand what the structure of hair is first before we can actually understand what it does in the weather," he said.

To protect skin from harmful rays without feeling sticky, Figueiredo said to look for oil-free sunscreens. He also said to look at skin products' packaging, as many powders and moisturizers have SPF built-in already.
