Ah, we all know those dreaded days where it’s hot and humid and your makeup is literally melting off your face. You’re probably saying to yourself that you should have thought this through. But it happens to all of us. Fortunately, there are some great products on the market that can help combat the sweaty-face days. Here’s a few of my favourites.
A good quality long-lasting primer is the foundation for your makeup to sit on during the day. There are a range of primers that can help your makeup stay on your face without wearing out in the heat. Try Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturiser which is lightweight and leaves a bit of a glow.
2. Setting spray
Want dewy looking skin for up to 16 hours? You can’t go past the Urban Decay All Nighter Pollution Protection Environmental Defense Makeup Setting Spray. This spray is created with Temperature Control Technology: a patented technology that regulates the temperature of your makeup to keep it from smudging or melting in any climate. This new version includes an innovative invisible shield that protects the skin against environmental damage. A pro is that this product is completely vegan and made without any animal products, parabens or oil. Woo!
3. Waterproof makeup
The third main key to having sweat-proof makeup is using waterproof makeup. For those of you who tend to get panda eyes when your face becomes sweaty, I believe investing in a great eyeliner and mascara makes all the difference. I highly recommend Kat Von D’s eyeliner and Kevyn Aucoin’s The Curling Mascara. It doesn’t run, doesn’t smudge and is super easy to remove with water.
4. Blotting sheets
Keep blotting sheets in your bag for those moments where your face has become a sweaty and oily playground. Instantly refresh your face whilst leaving your makeup intact. Try the Mecca Max blotting sheets which are both affordable and effective.
