Summer Essentials: The Stay-Proof Makeup Products You Can't Do Without

Written by:

Summer's here and temperatures are rising. It's the perfect time of year to meet up with friends, hit the beach and soak up some rays. Unfortunately, it's also the time of year when the makeup you apply in the morning ends up sliding off your face by noon.

Well, heat and humidity, you've finally met your match. We've tracked down some of the best makeup finds that will help you stay gorgeous all summer long.

Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan

We love Almay's Health Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan. Not only will this foundation hydrate your skin, but over a few days of use, you'll achieve that sun-kissed look that usually can only be achieved on vacation. And if a foundation and self-tan weren't enough, this multi-tasker contains SPF 20, too!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

The problem with some bronzing powders is that they can leave your face feeling dry and your skin crying out for moisture. This ultra-light powder keeps moisture levels balanced while giving you a sun-kissed glow. And the best bit? You layer it until you achieve the color that you want.

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip & Cheek Tinted Gel

Delicate pink shades look amazing with a tan, and this sheer and sexy lip and cheek tinted gel from Guerlain will give you a rosy glow. It's so easy to apply that you won't need a mirror. Simply apply, take a quick selfie and you're good to go!

Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner

Who says you can't wear eyeliner when the heat is on? Revlon's Colorstay range features a collection of products that stay put no matter what the thermometer says. This creamy eyeliner features a built-in blender that makes it so easy to apply and smudge, while the trademark Colorstay formula helps to lock color in place. Perfect for popping in your purse or beach bag for those on-the-go touchups.

Tom Ford Shadow Extreme Singles

Yes, this eyeshadow may be on the higher end of the price scale, but you get some serious pigment payoff for your dollar here. This single eyeshadow compact are tiny enough to pop into your clutch and offer a huge splash of color with just one small brush swipe. The packaging is adorable, while the colors have some serious staying-power.

Cargo Swimmables Waterproof Mascara Topcoat

Now and then, a product comes along that has us almost swooning from its sheer genius. If you have a favorite mascara that you love, but wish it was available in a waterproof formula, Cargo Swimmables Waterproof Mascara Topcoat may just change your life. Simply brush over your regular mascara to achieve instant waterproofication -- this may or may not be a real word!

Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray

Whether you're using stay-proof makeup or your regular products, a quick spritz of Cover FX's Illuminating Setting Spray means you can spray, set and forget. This wonder product not only sets your makeup for the entire day, but also adds a touch of glow.

Trestique Magic Mattifying Balm and Blotting Sheet Duo

Whoever said men sweat and women perspire hasn't been to New York City in the middle of a heatwave. We all sweat, and when that happens we need some extra assistance in the makeup department. Step forward Trestique Magic Mattifying Balm and Blotting Sheet Duo. This practical chubby stick is easy to handle and even easier to apply. Use it to mattify any shiny patches and then use the blotting sheets to delicately blot those troublesome areas. Need some extra help? It's coming right up with the next product.
