Sweat Proof Summer Makeup Bag | Makeup Routine for Summer | Best Waterproof, Sweat-proof, Budge-proof long-lasting makeup This summer has just blown by for us. We moved into a new house, and by the time we had looked up from unpacking our boxes, it was already July! I can hardly believe it but before we know it it’s going to be the dog days of summer and then school will be starting. In Wisconsin, August is always swelteringly hot and if I even bother to wear makeup, it has to be completely sweat-proof, melt proof, and budge-proof. I’m not going to chance sweating one of my eyebrows off, so I need to make sure I choose the right products! 

Sweat Proof Summer Makeup Bag | Makeup Routine for Summer | Best Waterproof, Sweat-proof, Budge-proof long-lasting makeup Before I touch upon makeup, I have to tell you about my favorite hair combo for summer. I decided this year that I want to spend more time on my hair, so if I’m wearing it down, I really need to get rid of the insane flyaways and poofiness I get in the humidity. My favorite duo has been using the Christophe Robin Moisturizing Hair Cream with the Aveda Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother. This combo has been so good for my hair in the summer months.

For my skin, I’m loving some new finds that make summer makeup so perfect. I don’t like having to buy new foundation shades all the time so I take my regular foundation and add some BIY Pigment Drops to deepen it to my liking. It works great! I also like to start with a mattifying primer like the Cover FX Mattifying Primer and even though I’m dry I use a mattifying foundation when I know I’ll be sweaty. Pur Bare it All ticks all the boxes for me. I’ve found that mixing my own cocktail by adding Custom Cover Drops can make it have fuller coverage, and mixing in some moisturizing skincare can make it set better on my dry skin while still keeping oil and sweat at bay all day long. I always set this with Cover FX powder and the Cover FX Setting Spray; both the Illuminating and the Mattifying sprays work great for me to set everything in place.

I’m impressed with Pixi Cheek Gel because it is long wearing but has a sheer finish that looks really healthy and natural for summer. I’m also really liking Tarte Pro Glow highlighter. It comes out as a liquid but sets fairly quickly, and there is a lot of glimmer. I bring it down a notch and blend it in to the rest of my makeup by bouncing it in with a damp beauty blender. I know I’ll be reaching for both of these in the winter too so I’m glad I have them! The highlighter is light enough that even without a tan it will match me.

Anastasia Dip Brow is the gold standard for really long wearing eyebrows that look very natural. If I haven’t convinced you you need this, I’ve been using mine forever. I have been working on the same tub for a few years and it’s still going strong. Make Up For Ever does waterproof and budge-proof makeup really well. I use their eyeliners all the time as well as their eyeshadow sticks. Milk Makeup has really good eye pigments that I’ve enjoyed for their longevity as well. It Cosmetics has the absolute best mascaras for length, volume, and drama hands down. Superhero is good but they also have many waterproof formulas.

Lastly, the most sweatproof, budgeproof, long lasting lipstick that I’ve ever found is Lipsense! The wear time on this stuff is incredible. I wrote about it here

      I’m starting a new tube of my Superhero mascara tomorrow, mine is much loved and needs a replacement. I love that they are available in minis now too.

    As a new home owner I know that I too seem to have lost a month of my life. I’m amazed you are calm even with young kids. Your go to products are wonderful ones. I don’t usually have to darken makeup but I do like having the CoverFX drops if necessary. I also have a white one to lighten. The Pixi Gels are go to products this summer.

    You have great ideas for more fresh summer makeup looks. I really had to scramble before going to Cosmoprof this July because I didn’t feel like I had any preofessional looking foundation.
