Keep it right there. Don’t you dare move. Our top picks for budge-proof beauty will keep your makeup in tact and perfectly in place all summer long…even the steamiest afternoon in July is no match for these stay-all-day beauty solutions.
Set your foundation straight. Avoid the midday meltdown by applying Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer SPF 15 (212 872 8842) underneath your foundation, tinted moisturizer, BB or CC cream. While the idea of layering might seem like a warm weather oxymoron, this mineral-based, water-resistant primer applies as light as air and helps to keep your base in place through the stickiest of days. And think of the added SPF 15 as a little skin-saving bonus.
Keep covered. If balmy heat and high humidity cause your concealer to do a disappearing act, try Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Under-Eye Concealer (212 872 2740). The creamy, dark circle camouflage covers discoloration in a flash, yet looks completely natural and does not budge or smudge until you wash it off.
Weatherproof your lashes. Avoid spidery specks with Napoleon Perdis Mesmer Eyes Waterproof (212 872 8829). The smudge-resistant formula contains vitamin E, panthenol, and bamboo…so lashes are thoroughly nourished and completely prepped to stand up to high temperatures.
Stay cheeky. La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush (212 872 2623) is a warm weather must for soft, flushed cheeks. The long-wear formula (infused with La Prairie’s cellular anti-aging treatment) stays glowy and radiant all day long. Cheeks are perfectly fresh from sun up to sun down.
Create everlasting eyes. Le Metier de Beaute Indelible Inks Eyeliner (212 872 8612) is our no-brainer pick for super pigmented, smear-proof liquid liner. Intensely winged cat eyes will last through whatever Mother Nature decides to dish.
