As the summer months bring the beautiful sunshine and rays of heat, they also bring along with them sweat and humidity. Overtime I have found some pretty amazing summer makeup tricks in order to get my makeup to last through any long, hot summer day. If you struggle with the summer temperatures and just can’t seem to get your makeup to last, give some of these products a try. You will not regret it!

Finding a good makeup primer is key, especially during the summer months. You don’t want your makeup melting off in the summer sun do you? The best way to prevent this is with a good primer. This will work to lay the perfect foundation for your makeup.
I have two primers in mind that I really love, especially during the summer months. The first one is Dr. Brandt Skincare “Pores No More” Pore Refiner Primer. The second primer that I have come to really love is The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer. Both of these primers work wonderfully to lay the perfect foundation for a long-lasting summer makeup look.
My other secret weapon is a high quality finishing powder. A good finish powder will set your makeup and keep you looking fresh and oil free all day long. My absolute favorite finishing powder is MAC’s Prep + Prime Finishing powder. I blot this all along my t-zone area after completing my makeup. It locks in my makeup and keeps me oil-free all day long.
Makeup Setting Spray
If you are not a fan of the finishing powders, you can also try makeup setting spray. If you go this route, I would recommend trying Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray or Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir.
Waterproof Your Makeup
If you are like me and you tend to get super sweaty in the face area on a hot day, then I highly recommend finding waterproof makeup options for the summer. This is not limited to mascara, and includes your concealer, foundation and eyeliner as well.
Here are some good waterproof makeup options…
If you have oily skin, blotting papers are a must on a hot day. Keep a pack on hand and blot your face as needed throughout the day. This works wonders to clear up any excess oil or shine.
