It feels like summer arrived overnight. Just a few weeks back we were huddling around heaters and now, all of a sudden, the heat is back with a vengeance. And it’s only October! If you find yourself sweating as much as we are, and are on the hunt for sweat-proof beauty buys, you’ve come to the right place…
Here are 10 buys that will keep you looking fresh (even if you don’t feel it)
1 Smashbox Photo Finish Iconic Primer Stick
The best way to make sure your foundation stays put is to prime your skin first. This one smoothes out your skin’s texture while also keeping it matte.
2 CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 40
This lightweight foundation was designed to withstand sweat and humidity and has impressive staying power with the ability to stay put for 12 hours.
3 Bobbi Brown Skin Long-wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15
If you want a foundation that offers full coverage and lasts for up to 16 hours, this one, which comes in 30 different shades, is a worthwhile investment.
4 NYX Professional Makeup Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer
Just like the rest of your face, applying eyeshadow primer before adding your colour means that even in the heat it will stay looking totally flawless.
5 MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
As the name suggests, this sweat-proof beauty buy is able to last all day – up to 16 hours – and comes in a vast array of shades to cater to most skin tones.
6 Stila Waterproof Stay-All-Day Liquid Eyeliner
The thin marker-type tip makes this eyeliner easy to apply and, unlike other liquid varieties, is waterproof and can deal with both sweat and tears (and swimming pools).
7 Yardley London Rain Coat Mascara
In the same way that this top coat prevents rain from ruining your look, it also makes sure that your mascara doesn’t run when you feel like you’re melting.
8 Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink
Tried, tested and loved by the beauty community, this longwear lipstick comes in plenty of trendy shades and stays looking perfect despite a damp upper lip.
9 Benefit Benetint
This cult product acts as a stain for lips and cheeks, which means that it will stay in place until you are ready to remove it with your makeup wipes.
10 Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
Using a setting spray to keep makeup in place is the best way to make sure it goes the distance. This one truly lives up to its name and locks it all in.
