We never surrender our makeup—not even in the face of sweat, sand, and skyrocketing mercury. Instead, we find products that stick with us, stopping the makeup slip-and-slide before it starts. Created with our favorite pool-proof, melt-proof, and well, everything-proof products, our latest Look of the Moment not only beats the heat—it brings it.
A little sweat can sabotage meticulously-applied eyeshadow, so—for this look—we ditched creams and powders for BY TERRY’s super long-wear Stylo Blackstar. The luxurious gel boasts “tattoo-hold” technology, lasting through all-day fun in the sun. For liner, we chose Smith & Cult’s B-LINE Eye Pen. The thin, pen-style applicator and quick-dry liquid formula make it the ultimate stay-put product.
Traditionally speaking, full-coverage lippies and hot temps aren't an ideal pairing, but...we’re not about to go all summer long without a bright, vibrant lip. The solution? Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. The formula lives up to its name, staying fade-free through beach parties, barbeques and beyond. To make this lip extra long wear—and to prevent bleeding—we lined lips with Stay All Day Lip Liner before filling them in.
When it’s super hot outside, we barely want to wear clothes, let alone a thick, oily, full-coverage foundation. For this look, we used IT COSMETIC’s Confidence in a Cream. (After prepping with SPF, of course.) Lighter and more breathable than a BB cream, the slightly tinted formula is warm-weather ready, and perfect for everyday wear.
Since no summer look is complete without glowing, radiant skin, we finished with a pop of blush and a shimmery highlight. SURRATT BEAUTY’s Artisitique Blush delivers a sheer, long-lasting wash of color to enliven the face, while LAURA GELLER NEW YORK’s Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator adds all-day dimension and radiance to your complexion.
The most important part of your summer beauty routine? SPF. This suncare-infused mist makes reapplication a breeze, refreshing makeup while adding protection that won’t tarnish your look.
