Question: On a sunny day, what’s the best sweat proof makeup?
Answer: With spring here and summer just around the corner (at least I like to imagine it is), our makeup tends to start doing a vanishing act under the heat of the sun. But fear not because there are several things you can do to set your makeup in place and stop sweat from ruining your chic look.
It’s all about priming if you want your makeup to stay put all day. Rimmel has a few face primers that work very well and smooth the skin out before you apply your base. As far as eyes go, I have been loyal to Urban Decay Primer Potion for several years. There’s nothing worse than a fallen cat eye or creased eyeshadow, and priming your eyes will ensure that doesn’t happen.
You can also find mattifying products, such as Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator. Use these just down the T-Zone to avoid over drying out the skin.
Switching to powder products is another simple and effective way to combat heat. Try a mineral foundation like the beautiful Tarte Amazonian Full Coverage Clay Foundation. It’s buildable but feels light on the skin and is perfect for people who hate the feeling of foundation.
Probably the most obvious tip is to look for waterproof products! If you’re an eyeliner addict, Rimmel has an amazing waterproof version. And don’t be afraid to test out some waterproof mascaras to find your favorite. If you want a bold lip, look for a lipstick that’s long-wearing and won’t smudge.
The bottom line? Keep things simple and avoid overloading on products. With a little prep and some finishing powder, you’ll be sweat-proof all day!
