Humidity/Sweat Proof Makeup

Last week I talked about the must have beauty items to survive summer (you can read it here if you haven’t). So I thought this week I’d walk you through the perfect natural makeup look that won’t melt off your face...

NYX // Anti-Fatigue Primer

I’ve never been too impressed with primers until I came Thailand and saw how much they affected the longevity of my makeup. Whilst the anti-fatigue is pretty unnecessary when you have a glowing, sun-kissed skin, the hold power of this primer is pretty life changing in humid conditions. I'd be interested to try the HD Studio Primer also by NYX and see how that one holds out.

The Body Shop // BB Cream

I always pick a BB cream over a foundation in the summer because I don’t like packing too much product on my face. The less you put on, the less that can melt off. This one is great because it is slightly tinted and will adapt to the colour of your skin tone. So no need to worry about picking up multiple shades to substitute for your beautiful glowing tan. It's got a light to medium coverage so it combats any pigmentation problems but doesn't completely mask your face.

Becca // Shimmering Skin Perfector (Liquid)

There's nothing better than really going for the glowy look in the summer, and the Shimmering Skin Perfecting Highlight by Becca is a go-to product for me. The liquid version is strong and durable and clings to the skin better than the powder version. I like to use a little on the tops of my cheeks and then the inner corners of my eyes to brighten up my face.

Maybelline // Lash Sensational

When you’re hot and sweaty, mascara and eyeliner tend to slide around on the eyes and whilst I love Panda’s, the panda eye isn’t a look I want to covet this summer. Or any summer really. This mascara is the best waterproof alternative of a good mascara I’ve tried. It's really buildable so you can get beautiful, full lashes and even be protected from it running down your face.

NYX // Matte Finishing Spray

Like the Primer, this product is a make or break for my makeup on humid days. I don’t like powder when it’s hot because it’s too cakey. But a refreshing mist of this and my makeup is with me all day.

What’s great about this look is you can put in as much or as little as you like. On holiday, I love the ‘my face but better’ look and unsurprisingly, this works best where sweat proofing is concerned. Are there any products you think I've missed that would be great for making your makeup last longer in humid conditions?

Love always,

  1. Hi Melissa,

    May I know what country you live in?

    Here in tropical countries (I live in Indonesia, by the way :p), primers are the must-have items before applying any makeups. Either for your eyes or your face. If you wanna have the makeup to stay longer, better apply some beforehand :D

    I don't apply primers in daily bases, but definitely wear them for special occasions (mostly formal events; weddings, blogger events, etc.) so I don't have to worry about how I look after an hour at the events hehe

    However, NYX Matte spray is recommended by many bloggers and I'd like to try it someday. I don't feel like I need it at the moment tho, I've heard it's quite average and some of my friends suggested Skindinavia instead >.<

    Well, it's nice to read your list of sweatproof products :)

  2. Your article has aroused a great deal of positive hobby. I can see why since you have made such a decent showing of making it intriguing. Humidity Chamber


I love hearing what you have to say too...
