Best Sweat-proof Makeup


 

Travel Fashion Girl help! A reader asks:

 

“I’m headed to Belize next week. What do you change for your makeup routine when it’s hot and humid?”

 

Hot and humid locations can make applying makeup a nightmare as it can melt off your face an hour later. If you’d prefer not to go makeup-free, it’s time to swap your standard travel makeup for sweatproof makeup that can withstand the more extreme temperatures.

 

Here’s what our readers say are the best sweatproof makeup products for humid weather.

Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner

 

Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner

 

Although it’s not a makeup product, several readers recommended applying a mattifying toner prior to makeup application for a clear complexion. One reader recommends this Sunday Riley toner, saying “I really like the Sunday Riley mattifying toner. It gets rid of the ‘shiny’ look when I use it with my moisturizer. I love it.”

This toner instantly transforms from a cooling gel to a water toner as it clarifies, removes oil, and visibly tightens pores for clear, matte skin.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

 

For keeping your makeup in place all day in any temperature, you need a primer. This Hourglass Veil primer is one of the best selling primers and one our readers love. We especially love the mini travel size it comes in.

A reader shares, “I absolutely love the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer. I wear it under my mineral powder foundation, and it is really expensive, but worth every penny. It has SPF and really mattifies the skin. It makes my face feel and look so smooth, soft, and glowing.”

Coola Suncare Mineral Face SPF 30

 

Coola Mineral Face SPF 30 Matte Tint

 

Wearing too heavy of a tinted moisturizer, foundation, or BB cream can clog pores and cause breakouts. Instead, reach for a slightly tinted sunscreen. So many of our readers love Coola’s products because they have antioxidant benefits and a matte finish that is ideal for normal to oily skin.

One reader says, “if you want a natural mineral sunscreen, I love Coola’s face sunscreen. It’s water resistant and has a matte finish.” The tint on this is very light but it’s enough to even out your skin.

BareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15

 

BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15

 

If you prefer more coverage than a lightly tinted sunscreen, try a mineral powder foundation, which many of our readers love for hot and humid climates. BareMinerals makes the best selling mineral powder foundation and people love it for the even coverage and lightweight feel.

Their matte version is perfect for hot and humid destinations. One reader says, “Try a mineral makeup like the BareMinerals powder foundation. It has SPF and helps control moisture and oil.”

stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

 

Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

 

When you need a budge-proof eyeliner to last all day long, reach for a liquid version. One reader recommends Stila’s Stay All Day eyeliner, saying “it’s wonderful. I wore it all over Southeast Asia last year with no issues.”

This easy-glide, quick-dry precision liner stays in place until you say when—no smudges, feathering, or running. It goes on smoothly without skipping, smudging, or pulling, and lasts all day.

Blinc Mascara

 

Blinc Mascara

 

For humid and sweaty destinations, a tubing mascara is the way to go, especially if you want to swap out your waterproof mascara. Blinc Mascara is the original tube-technology mascara that forms tiny water-resistant “tubes” around your lashes for maximum amplification and hold. Once applied, the tubes bind to your lashes and don’t run, smudge, clump, or flake.

One reader shares, “I use Blinc mascara and it does not smudge. It holds up well during tennis in Southern North Carolina, too.”

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

 

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

 

Regardless of how much makeup you apply to your face, a setting powder is the perfect final touch for setting your makeup and absorbing oil. One reader shares, “I live in Florida where it is always humid. I always tap a little translucent powder to set my makeup and it then stays in place.”

The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder locks in makeup for long-lasting wear, without adding weight or texture. This bestseller creates a modern, matte finish with a touch of sheer coverage, while it absorbs oil and reduces shine all day.
