8 best makeup products for summer heat23.06.2022
If there is one thing that defines Britishness better than any other, it’s the weather.
We complain if we don’t constantly refresh our apps, compare the information from different sources, or talk about it with our friends and colleagues. This is especially true when temperatures reach boiling point, or at least in stuffy London.
Our diaries are filled with picnics on the roof, in parks, at festivals, and barbecues under the sun when the heatwave hits. These are all times where we would rather our makeup stay put than slide, slide, or smudge down our faces. The gym, sauna-like commutes, and resisting the drip of air conditioning in offices are all examples.
Foundation that is evenly spreadable, concealer that doesn’t crease, eyeliner that won’t budge, lip gloss that can withstand endless cups of Pimm’s, mascara that won’t flake, and mascara that won’t leave you with panda eyes?
Well, no. It’s not necessary to have the best makeup products for all seasons. Your best friend will be setting powders and sprays.
Preparation is important so make sure you pay attention to what your skin is doing before applying any creams or lotions. Gel moisturisers are more cooling than creams, so keep a hand fan handy to keep your cool and calm.
Below are the must-haves for warm weather makeup
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup
Many people choose to skip foundation during summer and opt for lightweight formulas such as tinted moisturizers or BB creams. However, if you don’t want to sacrifice full coverage, you will need something that feels light, but looks flawless all night. Enter Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place foundation.
It has medium to full coverage and a matte finish which should reduce excess shine, oil, and sebum. You should use a face sunscreen underneath, as it only provides SPF10 protection. To keep you cool throughout the summer, it is water, heat and humidity resistant. There are 52 colors to choose from.

Too Faced is Waterproofer than Sex
Too Faced has released a waterproof version, once the UK’s bestselling mascara, Better than Sex. We think it is as good or better than the OG. This mascara is designed to be tested. It contains porcelain flower extract to condition the lashes and peptides to give it an intense black colour. It can be used in any situation, including a hot shower, sweaty gym session or teary moment.
It works in conjunction with the hourglass-shaped, Marilyn Monroe-inspired brush that covers every lash and lifts it for a doll-eye look.
Estee Lauder Extreme Waterproof Mascara
Estee Lauder sets high expectations for its mascara with a name like Extreme Waterproof. Thankfully, the product lives up to all of those expectations.
This mascara doesn’t clump together when your lashes get wet or sweaty. Instead, it works to multiply each lash for volume and length. Make sure you clean the brush as much as possible before applying. It lasts at least 10 hours and you won’t see any traces of it underneath your eyes even in high humidity.
