How To Sweatproof Your Makeup Routine
Posted on August 04 2021
Does the heat and humidity have your beauty routine down? Aside from the obvious (yet not always ideal) fix of wearing less makeup, we’ve rounded up our top meltproof makeup tips that will keep your look set—despite any sweat—all summer long.

Do Lightweight Skin Care
When applying your morning skin care products, skip any unnecessary steps or products that might leave your skin feeling heavy like rich moisturizers or face oils. Instead, apply a lightweight serum (like our Advanced Polypeptides Searum), dab of moisturizer where needed, and your favorite SPF.
Always Apply Primer
Wearing primer extends the life of any product you apply afterward, making it a must. Apply our Face Primer after skin care but before the rest of your makeup to blur the appearance of imperfections, fine lines, and deep pores and create a smooth, clear complexion that will make the other products you use stay put longer.
Create a Lightweight Base
In the summer, less is always more. Our Moisturizing Liquid Foundation is made with naturally derived ingredients that will give you a dewy finish without the shine. Keep it fresh and layer it on in small amounts. Bonus: it also contains natural sun protection.
Use a Sponge
A dampened makeup sponge is the ideal tool for applying concealer and foundation so that it goes on light and sheer—no oily fingers necessary. Put a few drops on our Luxury Compact Sponge and swipe it from the middle of your face outward in short strokes. Let it set before you apply other makeup.
Choose Creamy Formulas
When sweat and powders mix, the result isn’t pretty. Opt for a creamier shadow, blush, and lip color as it will tend to cake less in the heat. Our 3-in-1 Multi Pot comes in a variety of shades, is buildable, and won’t smudge in the sun. If you want a lip color with a little more color power, reach for our Matte Luxe Lip—the highly-pigmented liquid lipstick will stay in place all day and keep your pout nourished and hydrated.
Switch to Water-Resistant
Totally waterproof products can be harsh on your sensitive eye area, so opt for water-resistant choices instead. Featuring a fine calligraphy tip, our quick-drying Precision Liquid Liner has a water resistant, gluten-free formula that delivers ultimate precision to line, shape, and define your eyes—it lasts longer than a pencil and definitely won’t melt in the heat.
Focus on Your Brows
The easiest (and arguably chicest) look for summer is strong eyebrows paired with bright lips. Our Cream Brow Pencil is made from a stay-put formula that will shape, fill in, and define your arches so you can have natural-looking brows without harsh edges.
Set Your Makeup
To keep your makeup intact and have you looking flawless all day, use a Kabuki Brush to dust on our multi-pigmented Mosaic Illuminator. It covers imperfections, capture lights, and give you a radiant finish all while keeping your makeup in place. Top it off with a few spritzes of our Sea Mineral Hydra Mist and you’ll be set.
