Summer heat is inevitable but a greasy face full of makeup? Yeah, that’s what sweat-proof makeup is for. Yes I said greasy face. Listen it’s the truth, anyone who has oily skin can vouch for me. That’s why sweat-proof makeup has changed the game.
Keep reading if you want to know what sweat-proof makeup you’re gonna want to add to your makeup bag. After using these products, I can guarantee you won’t have to deal with grease-face ever again.
1. I Hear Her Eyeshadow’s Insured
Yes oily eyelids are a thing. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, chances are it’s not an issue for you and I hate you.
If you can relate to the oily eyelid issue, this Too Faced Shadow Insurance that’s a staple for many beauty gurus is for you. This primer is crease-free and it keeps eyeshadow looking fresh hours after its initial application. If you’re gonna be out in the sun all day, this eyeshadow primer is a must have for your sweat-proof makeup bag.
2. Forever Matte About Primer
In the world of makeup, primer can be very controversial sometimes. Some swear it’s a necessity and it aids with the lasting power of makeup. Others believe primer is a scam (and I believe they’re insane). While on some days you may get by without it, primer is a must have for a sweat-proof makeup look.
This Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector is perfect for your sweat-proof makeup look. It helps with oil-control and minimizes pores. It also promises 12 hours of use, meaning you can spend your entire day in the heat and not have to worry if you’re blotting your face enough.
3. Bake Me A Face
If you’re familiar with the beauty-guru world then you’ve more than likely heard the term “baking.” While baking can sometimes look a bit cakey, for a sweat-proof makeup look it might actually be helpful. Apply it underneath your foundation (after your primer) to areas you know will get greasy and let the powder work its magic. It’s a bit unconventional to use it this way but I promise you it works.
The powder I recommend adding to your sweat-proof makeup bag is the tried and true Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. It’s lightweight so it won’t look too powdery and it keeps the shine at bay for up to 12 hours.
4. Pulling An All-Nighter
Finding a foundation that will stand its own on a hot summer day is no easy feat. Luckily, I found one for you. The Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation seems to defy all odds. It’s a full-coverage foundation that’s matte but also has a natural finish and it’s waterproof. If that doesn’t make it the perfect addition to your sweat-proof makeup look I don’t know what will.
5. Filter? I Don’t Know Her
Adding concealer to a sweat-proof makeup look may seem overkill to some, but they haven’t tried this concealer. The Colourpop No Filter Matte Concealer gives great coverage and it’s perfect for oily skin. This means it’ll have no trouble combatting grease on a hot summer day – and it comes in a variety of shades so you should have no trouble finding one that’s perfect for your skin tone!
6. All Nighter Fixes Everything
Top off your sweat-proof makeup look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and you’ve basically confirmed a no-budge sweat-free look that’s going to last you the entire day. Seriously, sun who? This spray is like Windex. It fixes everything. *
