During the hot summer months, you may notice that your usual makeup routine is not holding up as well as usually does. Whether you’re laying out in the sun or taking your fitness routine outdoors, here are five ways to sweat-proof your makeup. 

 

1. Use a primer

To prevent your makeup from sliding off your face in the heat, try starting with a primer. Primer fills in pores, blurs blemishes, and smoothes skin to prep for makeup. Our Smooth Sailing Perfecting Primer has a mattifying, lightweight formula that provides an even canvas for makeup and extended wear. It has gold flakes which help to increase skin elasticity and vitamins E and C to protect skin from environmental stressors and to strengthen skin's natural moisture barrier. 

Similar to a face primer, for an eye look that lasts all day, we recommend using an eye primer. Our Smooth Sailing 360º Eye Primer keeps your fabulous eye look crease and smudge-proof! The formula is enriched with apple and pomegranate extracts which contain anti-aging properties that will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and texture. 

 

2. Set your makeup 

Don’t forget to set your makeup! Priming and setting should bookend your makeup routine to make sure your look survives the hot weather. Depending on your preference, you can set your makeup with a powder or a setting spray

 

3. Switch to cream products

Cream products are your summer BFF! They easily blend into the skin and provide long-lasting pigment. For a natural flush and glow, try our On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator. This ultimate multitasker adds gorgeous color and dewy luminosity to cheeks, lips, eyes and body. 

 

4. Choose water-resistant

You’re not alone if you’ve experienced mascara melting and smudging around your eyes. To avoid this from happening, try switching to a water-resistant or waterproof mascara. These formulas are more likely to ensure any sweating won’t smudge mascara around your eyes. Take your pick from our Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara and Mile High Club™ Volume and Length Mascara. Both of these are perfect for full and flirty lashes all year round.  

 

5. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

When skin is dehydrated, it may overproduce oil to make up for the lack of moisture. For an effective sweat-proof makeup routine, it’s essential to lock in moisture to keep skin hydrated all day long. Our Dive In™ Moisturizer is a lightweight gel-cream moisturizer that absorbs instantly into the skin and works well under makeup. It’s enriched with Pentavitin which provides up to 72 hours of moisture!
