7 Makeup Artist Approved Summer Tips to Sweat Proof Your Look

Check out our makeup artist-approved summer makeup tips to sweat-proof your look.

Lighten Up Your Skincare Routine: Our Prevention Plus Daily Tinted moisturizer is a great option for everyday use and it allows you to lighten up your routine with this two-in-one formula! This sheer formula delivers a hint of color that evens out the skin tone and gives a healthy glow all the while offering protection against UVA and UVB rays. Pair with a lightweight tinted concealer like Charlotte Tilbury’s Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer.

Invest in a Makeup Primer: Primers are the way to go in the summer as they help to hold the makeup in place all day without it feeling like a heavy extra layer. One our recent favorites is the Milk Makeup Hydrating Primer, which is lightweight and great for dry skin during the summer.

Glow Up with Some Bronzer: Everyone looks better with some added warmth! And this is an easy way to achieve that summer glow without damaging your skin by being out in the sun for too long. We recommend applying bronzer to just the high points of your face including your cheekbones, chin, and nose for a subtle glow.

Ditch the Shimmer: While a dewy glow is nice, there’s a difference between a healthy glow and too much shine. Try to avoid any cream foundations that are too luminous as they might make you look extra shiny with the humidity.

Give Your Shadow Staying Power: Avoid using eye cream on your lids for longer-lasting eyeshadow and smooth on an eye primer instead. This will minimize creasing and create a stronger base for your shadow to cling to. Try out Urban Decay’s Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

Swap Heavier Lipsticks for Stains: Store away your heavier matte lipsticks and opt for lip stains and balms that offer a more sheer coverage. We’re loving the Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm which doubles as a lip glow and lip stain!

Finish with a Setting Spray: Help your makeup stay on longer and beat the heat by spritzing on a setting spray before you head out of the house! One of our favorites is the Urban Decay All-Nighter Makeup Setting Spray.
