Let’s face it – it’s hard to prevent makeup from wearing off throughout the day let alone during the hottest days of summer! It can be extremely frustrating when you take the time to nicely apply makeup, only to have it sweat off halfway through the day. Having oily skin is even tougher, since natural oil secretion can be an issue along with sweat and heat. Thankfully, there are some amazing products out there for eyes, lips, and face that are bound to last all day, even through the most intense heat!
Foundation: Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation
Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation has been around for quite a while, and it still remains one of the best long wearing foundations on the market for all skin types. In addition, it has a large shade range that covers almost every skintone and undertone to match. Each bottle runs about $42, which isn’t too bad considering that it lasts a long time and one only needs a small amount for all over application. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, Sephora, $42.
Concealer: Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Concealer
Concealer is one of the best makeup products–seriously. When foundation can’t quite cover it all and you don’t want to look cakey, concealer comes in handy to only target the spots that need helping. Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Concealer is a full coverage, creamy concealer that gets the job done and remains intact throughout the day. It also contains SPF 15 for slight protection from the sun. The finish is natural and seamless, too! Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Concealer, Sephora, $25.
Setting Powder: CoverGirl Professional Loose Powder
Setting powder is definitely necessary for hot summer days. Without it, face makeup can get too dewy and oily. However, it isn’t always necessary to splurge on a setting power, and there are great drugstore products out there that work just as well as high-end stuff. My personal favorite is the CoverGirl Professional Loose Powder. The huge jar really lasts forever, and it comes in a small range of different translucent shades. It gets the job done without breaking the bank! CoverGirl Professional Loose Powder, Target, $5.00.
Eyeliner: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner
I swear by the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner. I’ve tried to find drugstore dupes for this product, but it honestly cannot be beat! This eyeliner has a felt tip and easy slender design, making it effortless to line the upper lashline or create a flawless cat-eye. It truly lasts all day, and it doesn’t come off at all unless you use eye makeup remover. It may be pricey for some at $22, but trust me, you’ll never use another liquid eyeliner again after this one! Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner, Sephora, $22.
Brows: Anastasia Dip Brow Wiz
Brows are the trickiest, because you can definitely look a little wild if one eyebrow has melted off while the other is still on! In general, Anastasia Beverly Hills makes the best long-wearing eyebrow products. However, their Brow Wiz is one of the most compact and natural looking brow products that they have. You don’t need any extra brush or tool, because there is a spoolie on the other side of the stick for quick and easy blending! The product tip is pointed, making it perfect for drawing on light hair-like strokes. Anastasia Brow Wiz, Sephora, $22.
