How To Keep Your Makeup Sweat-Proof Throughout The Day
Our perfect version of long-lasting beauty does exist and it’s called sweat-proof makeup! We know that’s way easier said than done. Makeup meltdowns happen to the best of us but with some planning and the right products, they can be ancient history. It’s time to level up your year-round makeup routine and say goodbye to makeup melt-off for good. From optimizing your skincare to the best primers, setting sprays and powders, plus longwearing formulas, here’s your game plan for keeping your makeup fresh all year round.
Is Your Skincare Routine Approved?
Many of us don’t realize our skincare routine needs to be seasonally appropriate. Generally speaking, that means lightening up in the summer and adding more layers in the winter. Even if your skin isn’t prone to oiliness, it’s a good idea to use oil-free and mattifying skincare products during the day, especially if you’ll be outdoors. It is the perfect time to introduce a skin-regulating toner to the mix, which will refine your pores and keep excess shine under control.
Beauty products to prioritize
Foundation and concealer:
If you’re looking for the best makeup defense against weather, you’re going to need the right tools. Foundation and concealer formulas play a big role in how our overall makeup looks so be sure to do your homework when shopping for them. Look for key terms like mattifying and sweatproof right on the label as well as waterproof in the case of this high-coverage concealer.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, primer is non-negotiable. Not only will it make your products last longer, but it also treats your skin so that your makeup can perform its best. This anti-shine makeup primer will keep your skin’s oil in check while giving you that mattifying skin finish we all crave. Go ahead and apply to your whole face and really concentrate the coverage on areas where you want to refine the look of pores, like your cheeks, forehead, and chin.
Let’s face it, you can’t bring your best look without waterproof mascara, period. We know it’s a commitment but the protection it gives you against product transfer and smearing is worth the annoyance of removing it all at night. This highly-pigmented waterproof mascara will give your lashes the VIP volume treatment and better yet, will outlast you at every holiday event.
There’s no denying the thrill of gliding on a super smooth cream blush to your cheeks for the perfect pop. The thing is, creamy formulas don’t always have the best staying power…until now. Meet your few fav cream-to-powder blush, which blends the best of both cream and powder benefits to bring you a matte cream blush that lasts.
Longwearing Lip Color
A bright holiday lip always feels fresh except for when it fades quickly or smudges unevenly! With this bright, super longwearing lip tint, you don’t have to worry about that happening while sipping those cocktails. For extra insurance, pair it with a longwearing waterproof lipliner to prevent feathering around the lip line.
Finish Strong with Setting Powder and Setting Spray
Beauty pros know that ensuring makeup lasts means relying on setting products to keep your makeup from melting off. Think of actors who work under sweat-inducing bright lights. Invest in a waterproof setting powder to help lock in your makeup and keep it looking polished for a long period. Simply dust this waterproof setting loose powder over your face to help set your products and absorb any excess shine. Go for a matte, oil-absorbing fixing spray to help minimize your pores and set your makeup in place. This formula won’t dry out your skin and will even keep your makeup going strong for 16 hours.
