No matter how avant-garde the makeup industry gets, raccoon eyes and splotchy foundation will never be trendy! Unfortunately, the scorching summer heat is melting off all our makeup into ghastly little puddles and smears! After much searching (and tons of testing), we’ve uncovered 5 superstar products that will keep your makeup melt-proof, irrespective of what the temperature may be!
1. Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray
Got an outdoor event to attend? Don’t sweat it! Yes, we love our puns, but this product is truly a saviour. Just spray it on to lock down your makeup and keep the oil at bay. If you are out for long hours, spritz it on periodically to refresh your look and nix the shine.
2. Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer
This velvety smooth primer is a Glossip Girl favourite. It creates an even, matte base for your makeup and keeps it from slipping off. Use it both, before and after applying your foundation, to really fight off the heat and humidity.
3. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Eye products are pesky little creatures that love to run around and never stay in place! Show them who the boss is with this brilliant primer. Whether you go for a smoky eye, or an elaborate winged line, this product will ensure that everything stays right where it’s supposed to be.
4. NYX Studio Finishing Powder
As the day goes on, our T-Zones get oilier and shinier. Banish the grease with this translucent loose powder. Perfect for all skin tones, this miracle powder will keep your makeup in place all day. Be sure to only use a tiny bit, as a little goes a long way.
5. Boscia Black Charcoal Blotting Linens
When all else fails, reach for blotting paper. Boscia’s charcoal infused sheets soak up excess oil, without disturbing your makeup. Small enough to fit into your purse, these blotting linens are ideal for all those outdoor summer concerts.
