Last week, I got an email from a reader who’s daughter inherited her family’s propensity to sweat heavily. While for health reasons, it has its benefits, but when it comes to makeup she needed suggestions on how to keep her makeup intact during these hot summer months.
The heat wave this week had me thinking that it’s definitely a problem most people that wear makeup can relate to. So I’m sharing some of my favorite products and tips to keep your makeup sliding off this summer!
Whenever I’m going to be outside in the heat and humidity, a good primer is a must, and I love the Smashbox’s Pore Minimizing primer. Not only does it minimize the appearance of my pores, but it also keeps the oil and shine away.
Next up, my go to foundation long wear, sweat proof foundation is Esteè Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup. Not only does it provide a full, matte coverage, but it looks great from coffee to cocktails. No wonder it’s a cult favorite. I also love the color selection. I wear Honey Bronze 4W1–one of the best color matches I’ve found for my very yellow undertones complexion!
Ahhh my next must have is my beloved Temptu airbrush machine. It’s a bit of splurge, but so worth it. There’s a reason why brides love to be airbrushed on their big day. It’s very natural looking, photographs beautifully, and stays on ALL day! A starter kit (which is all most people need) will run you around $200.
I just covered face products today, but what are some of your other favorite long lasting makeup products?
