By this point I’m never shutting up about summer. It’s my life now, what can I say?
And even though I have a deep love for summer, I’m well aware it’s not the best season for makeup. It’s always hot and humid and the last thing you want is to feel makeup sliding all over your face. I get that.
But I’m also a makeup lover and the weather is not gonna stop me from wearing makeup. All I have to do is switch up my routine a bit and summer-proof it.
I’ve tried a bunch of products out to see if they fit into my summer routine and I have officially found some amazing products that withstand the heat.
If you’re in need of some heat-proof makeup products that will last through long summer days, check these out!
Milk Makeup Hydrogrip Primer
Think of this primer as the glue that will hold your face together throughout the whole day. It’s the perfect primer for the summer.
The consistency is really sticky which is perfect for whatever you want to put on top. Once you apply it, it absorbs into your skin and it leaves a glass-like effect. Most importantly, it locks anything you put on top of it, in place.
Maybelline Dream Urban Cover Foundation
The latest from Maybelline is also the greatest for summer!
This foundation has an SPF of 50 which is perfect for this time of year. It also has other properties that are supposed to protect your skin from pollution and all that is bad in this world.
The coverage on it is great and the formula is lightweight. Perfect for the hot summer days. It lasts quite a long time but when it does start to fade you barely notice it. The best thing about it is that it’s affordable and you can get it at any drugstore!
Nudestix Nudies Bloom
I don’t care what anyone says, wearing cream makeup during summer is possible. And these blushes by Nudestix are also a new product alert!
There are 4 shades in the range and they’re all summer-y colors. The formula is dewy but it is really long-lasting and pigmented. Plus if the color starts moving around your face it’s an easy formula to ‘rearrange’ with your fingers, should you need to.
Almay Velvet Foil Cream Shadow
Keeping the cream makeup theme going with this next product. Cream shadows are great for summer because they’re long-lasting and crease less than powder shadows. #facts
Almay came out with these cream shadows in a bunch of different colors and I was pleasantly surprised. Almay is not my brand of choice at the drugstore but these looked promising. And they’re totally amazing! The formula is super foiled and pigmented. It’s easy to use and it lasts forever on the eyes.
Not even sweat will crease these shadows!
Glossier Lash Slick
Mascaras never smudge on me so it was hard to find one that is smudge-proof on basically everyone I know. Lash Slick was the clear winner.
This is a unique mascara that comes off super easily with water, but it doesn’t flake or smudge ever. Not even with sweat. The one thing I will say is that this is a really natural mascara, which is perfect for every day. But if you’re looking for something more dramatic, this isn’t it.
If you know of a volumizing mascara that is heat-proof yet easy to remove, let a girl know!
And that, my friends, is a roundup of the heat-proof products I’ve discovered this summer. If you’ve discovered some of your own, leave them in the comments down below.
