We can’t help but rejoice when the sun makes an appearance each day and blazes us with the heat – if we’re lucky – but with the sun some comes exactly that, heat, that triggers and transforms us into hot sweaty messes no matter how much deodorant we thought would get us through the day. The dreaded SULA (sweaty upper lip alert, didn’t you watch Wild Child?) soon makes its inevitable appearance and as our pores open up in an attempt to cool us down, our makeup disappears by the second. Not ideal. However, this doesn’t have to be reality. Today we’re showcasing some of our best sweat-proof products and techniques you can use to get through this summer flawlessly.
Dermalogica Calm Water Gel is an incredible weightless water-gel moisturiser that hydrates dry, sensitive skin. Its refreshing gel formula transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon application, forming a weightless barrier against environmental factors such as the sun and pollution. This Dermalogica product has dual hyaluronic acid technology that works in different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture too. Indulge in this beauty and let its apple fruit, cactus pear and glycerine ingredients hydrate and support your skin with its water-binding properties.
Bare Minerals BarePro Performance Wear Foundation SPF20 is a great go-to sweat-proof foundation for the summer months. This liquid mineral foundation cares while it covers, improving the appearance of skin texture over time while blurring pores and imperfection. While also helping to increase the longevity of your makeup, this 24-hour full coverage foundation is breathable and powered by Bare Minerals’ Mineral Lock Long-Wear Technology that blends mineral pigments with lipids naturally found in the skin to lock in transfer-resistant colour. With a naturally matte, soft-focus finish, this is perfect for adding both coverage and SPF for a day in the sun.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Brow Kohl Liner is perfect is you’re a fan of adding that extra bit of texture to your brows and if you can’t live without a lick of eyeliner. This 24-hour wear liner is, of course, waterproof too. What could be better? This would also be a great product to take along with you on holiday if you fancy having a dip in the pool or are off swimming in the sea. There’s no need to worry about coming out of the ocean with an eyebrow missing when you’ve got this bad boy in your bag.
Keeping in theme with eye makeup, the Lord & Berry Scuba Pro Waterproof Black Mascara is long-wearing, length-defining and actually offers 100% protection against everyday pollutants. It perfectly resists water and humidity yet is extremely gentle on the lashes. With Lord & Berry’s Scuba Extreme, you don’t need to compromise intense colour or thickness – amazing, right?
Finally, to set all of your makeup in place and to give it the ultimate sweat-proof finishing touch, why not try out the W7 Matte Fixing Spray? If you’re hesitant about spritzing what may appear to be a tube of the unknown onto your face, you don’t need to worry. All you need to know is that like many other setting sprays, this one is like any other that you apply to your face once you’ve applied your makeup. Ultimately, it helps prevent smudging and sets your makeup in place for as many hours as you need. This particular spray has a matte finish which makes it even better suited to combat any sun-induced sweats too!
