We’ve all been there: sweating your makeup off faster than you can apply it or looking like a raccoon as your mascara melts off your face. So not cute, and now also so not necessary. Consider these sweat-proof makeup products to be your summer beauty must-haves. —Jeanine Gordon
conceal, don’t reveal. This summer, skip the heavy foundation and lighten up with strategically placed concealer instead. We love this long-wear, sweat-proof formula by Estée Lauder that’s also waterproof and humidity-defying.
make it matte. Powder is a summer essential for keeping excess shine at bay and the best ones protect against harmful UV rays as well. This Shiseido full-coverage, water-resistant, and broad spectrum SPF 36 powder goes on silky smooth and keeps you looking shine-free and cool all day long.
soak it up. Don’t let sweaty skin ruin your look. Use these Sephora mattifying blotting papers and simply dab away facial shininess without disturbing your makeup. This slim little packet of sheets absorb excess oils and fit flawlessly into your beach bag or summer clutch.
kiss and tell. Believe it or not, the sun can also cause damage to the sensitive skin on your lips, which is why it’s important to keep them baby-soft and hydrated with a UV-blocking summer lip gloss. This version from Kiehl’s comes untinted or in five shades for a perfectly pretty (and protected) summer pout.
keep an eye on it. Checking your reflection only to find that your eyeliner is migrating south is something that no woman needs this summer. For that reason, we love this stay-put gel liner from Smashbox for 24-hours of smudge-free, waterproof wear.
