Between heat, humidity, swimming and inevitable sweating, we all need makeup that can stand up to the elements come summer. Since no one wants their makeup running down their face—or on their beach towel—these products will keep you sitting pretty no matter what Mother Nature has in store.
Oxygenetics Oxygenating Foundation
Few foundations can say they’re water-resistant (up to 90 minutes) with SPF 25, appropriate for all skin types and safe use after in-office procedures like laser treatments, chemical peels and minor surgery—but Oxygenetics can. The breathable gel-based formula is available in 14 blendable, buildable shades so virtually everyone can have flawless skin whether on the beach, by the pool and anyplace in between.
It Cosmetics Vitality Cheek Flush Stain
Offering the buildable color of a traditional powder with the staying power of a stain, this blush is a must for summer. Available in four shades, the micro-milled, talc-free formula leaves a natural-looking, healthy flush as skincare ingredients like antioxidant green and white teas, hyaluronic acid, aloe and jojoba protect and perfect your skin over time.
Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Color Paint
These pigment-packed creams might be the hardest-working eyeshadows out there. Whether you opt for a neutral shade or a statement-making hue, simply build up the color to achieve your desired finish, let it set and forget about it until you’re ready to take it off. (The range also includes waterproof eyeliners, lipliner, lip color and more, so be sure to check them out, too.)
Lancome Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara
Summer or not, everyone needs a waterproof mascara in their makeup bag, and this one offers a major boost in volume and length along with up to 24 hours of staying power (and no smudging or flaking). The large, plush brush reaches each and every lash, and you can swim, sweat and cry at every wedding this summer without worrying about raccoon eyes.
Lashfood Velvet 3D Brow Glide
If you need help in the brow department (or just want enviable eyebrows at all times), this four-in-one semi-permanent gel thickens, conditions, enhances color and keeps hairs in place until you decide to take it off. The unique hybrid applicator features both a sponge tip for precise application and a spoolie brush for getting stray hairs in line—and the smudge-proof formula can literally last for days if you let it.
TIZO Lip Protection Tinted SPF 45
With extremely thin and delicate skin, the lips are the amongst the most damage-prone part of the body—and one of the most neglected come summer. Sunscreen is essential for protecting this vulnerable spot, and you can get a just-bitten flush at the same time with this mineral-based, antioxidant-infused balm. P.S. The kiwi-lime-ginger flavor is divine.
