Here in Missouri temps are at their all time high for the summer season, and I can tell you first hand it is hot hot hot! With the added humidity (especially bad this year with all the rain we've had!), this is sure to be a sticky, makeup-melting summer.
But fear not! I've compiled a list of some of my favorite, long-lasting beauty products that are sure to beat the heat:
Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen // One of my favorites, and definitely a must-have for summer. It smells great, lasts long, and really gets the job done. Plus it's gentle enough for my overly sensitive skin, which I love!
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick // True to its name, this stuff does not budge! I've been itching to get my hands on some, but I have tried it and I've got to say, it is legendary. I love this bright pink shade for summer.
Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eyeliner // I used to use this liner day and night. I don't know where we lost touch, but I'm sure missing it! I think I may have to grab a new bottle on my next Target run, because I love how long lasting and bright this liner is! It stays dark and shiny all day long, even through sweat and tears!
Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation // Another Revlon revolution! I live for this foundation; it is the only kind I've ever used that has made my skin look absolutely flawless and yet radiant at the same time, all while staying put the whole day through! I'm currently using the regular ColorStay liquid foundation and it's just not the same. My only complaint with the whipped is the packaging...I hate jar packaging. It's not travel-friendly and it's not really very sanitary either. But I think I can forgive these flaws for a flawless complexion ;)
Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow // Another wedding day beauty product of mine! This shadow comes in lots of pretty colors, including a few high end dupes, and stays put for literally 24 hours. You'll def need a good makeup remover for this bad boy.
e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set Setting Spray // I've never tried the infamous Urban Decay Chilled setting spray, but I'd be willing to be this is a decent drugstore dupe of it! It works so well that I used it on my wedding day with no regrets! And at only $3, how could you not at least try it?! Simply spritz all over your face and go!
John Freida Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray // My tried and true. On average days, I'm content with my Aussie hairspray, but for days when I really need the extra hold, I turn to my old pal John Frieda. This one is also a frizz-fighter which is perf for humidity! It's my favorite strong-hold spray but it's really too much for everyday. Use sparingly.
There you go! Now you can fearlessly dive into that pool or take those dreaded sunny outdoor family photos without fear of the smudge.
