This past week has been one of the hottest DC has seen all year, which, along with the sweaty work commutes, means absolute disaster for hair and makeup. Luckily, we’ve got such beauty pros as Claire Ashley in town to help us get through these trying times. With 130,000 subscribers to her increasingly popular YouTube channel, which just celebrated its five-year anniversary, this self-trained makeup artist and vlogger knows her stuff. In the past, she’s helped us out with DIY bridal makeup and the hard-to-master summer glow, among other tricky beauty feats. In a special video tutorial made just for Shop Around, Ashley shows us how to acheive a gorgeous, glowy summer makeup look that lasts through hours of hot temps.
