You know that feeling of a fresh makeup application, all set and applied so well, mascara and eyeliner in all the right places? And suddenly out of nowhere, a big heatwave comes along and your makeup is doing all the things from your worst nightmares.
Here’s some melt-proof makeup products to keep the summer heat away from your beat face!
The French definitely know their way around mists and I know I’ve kept this particular one close to me through the Sydney summer heatwaves! Not only does this amazing mist set your makeup, but you can even use it as a part of your skincare routine. This mist helps to hydrate your skin and revitalise it, and gives it that pick-me-up that we all need after a long day outside in the sun or at work in the aircon.
This mist also has peppermint oil, which gives it such a refreshing scent and a beautiful freshness. I love this, and have been experiencing an improvement in the overall look and feel of my skin whilst using it. Definitely an investment worth purchasing, and for anyone who’d like to try it, theres a smaller bottle on sale thats only $21 for 30ml.
Just like the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, this spray is makeup’s perfect companion! This sits so well over a full face of makeup helping to shield and protect your makeup from the elements all day! This miracle worker also helps to keep hydration in the skin and I love that it doesn’t contain any alcohol!
A handy tip with this spray is that you can even spray your eyeshadow brush or highlighting brush and apply with your favourite eyeshadow pigment or highlighter to create an even more pigmented finish to your favourite eyeshadow or highlighter! Gotta love multi-use products!
Summer sun does have a habit of melting off foundation since it’s a liquid/cream formula, that’s why it’s pretty important to incorporate some powder to set the face during these hotter months. A favourite setting powder of mine to stay matte and oil-free all day long is the Givenchy Prism Libre powder. Not only does this powder have a luxurious packaging (as do all Givenchy products), but it also helps to brighten and colour correct enhancing your makeup as a final step! I personally love the floral scent it has, and it’s definitely on my summer ‘setting’ list.
This product for for the beach-lover’s of summer! If you love spending time out and about and for those in particular who love getting into the waves, the formula of this beauty is waterproof and sweat-proof. Dipbrow Pomade comes in a variety of shades and undertones to match any hair colour.
This product will also take you through a whole year, with the amount of product packed in each jar! A little goes a long way!
So what are you summer makeup must-haves? Are any of the above products on your list?
