I am in no way, shape, or form a pro at makeup, but what I have become a pro at is finding the right makeup to stay in place all summer long. Summer is one of my favorite seasons, but the heat and humidity haven’t always been a friend of my makeup. Luckily, I have discovered the best products to keep your face intact all day long.
1—Urban Decay Setting Spray. This is a must. I never understood the power of setting spray until I went to college down South. A good setting spray saves your look. There are many different drug store duplicates for this setting spray, but Urban Decay is definitely worth the splurge.
2—Urban Decay Primer Potion. Unfortunately, I have very oily skin, especially on my eyelids. In the summer it was almost impossible for my eyeshadow to stay on my eyes. However, after the discovery of this lifesaver, all of my eyeshadow stays on my lids regardless of the temperature outside.
3—Maybelline Define-A-Line Eyeliner. An everyday eyeliner is essential, and this is the perfect eyeliner. Maybelline’s Define-A-Line has been in my life since the eighth grade, and I have been loyal to it ever since. This drugstore eyeliner never sweats off your eyes, and always stays put.
4—Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. Like many other people, I struggled with finding a foundation that wouldn’t sweat off my face as soon as I stepped into the sun. I also struggled with finding a good blendable foundation that wouldn’t leave orange marks all over my face. My oily skin never lets my makeup stay on my face without looking like I’m sweating buckets, so the matte finish of this foundation is amazing.
5—Laura Mercier Setting Powder. This powder helps keep my oily face matte throughout the day. Just apply with a large brush whenever your skin starts to feel oily, and you’ll look good as new!
