With spring finally here, we’re that much closer to summer, which means we’re not only looking for makeup that withstands the humidity and heat, but fun, bold, pops of colour as well. Today we’re talking Cargo’s longwearing products that can withstand perspiration, rain and heat so you can spend more time lying poolside, beachside or just being outdoors without having to worry about reapplying.
