The sweaty girl's guide to summer beauty

In the summer... gets lighter, skin gets darker, water gets warmer, drinks get colder, and makeup starts sliding off your face by the time you've reached your destination. Summer, as it turns out, is kind of a double-edged sword when it comes to beauty. Everyone looks better with a tan, and salt water does wonders for your skin & hair... but what about when you're locked indoors at an office, waiting tables in the sweltering heat, or just... sitting in the sunshine? You might be dangerously close to losing your whole face of makeup.

Anyway, moral of the story is that it's hard being a sweaty girl in the summer...

1. Too Faced Hangover Primer and Hangover 3-in-1 Setting Spray

Every so often in the land of beauty, you find a product that changes your life. For me, that product was Too Faced's Hangover 3-in-1 Setting Spray. Not only can you use it as a primer (you should also buy their primer, as it's amazing, I just happen to love the setting spray and it's very versatile), but you can use it to set your makeup (I mean, duh it's right there in the name and I promise, it really doesn't budge) BUT you can also use it just about any time of day to refresh that skin from a beauty hangover. It's light, it smells like coconuts, and you're welcome for the hot tip.

2. Clinique #CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup

If a product claims to be "strong enough to last a marathon"... SIGN ME UP! CliniqueFIT was created with the intention of answering the age-old question of "should you wear makeup to the gym". NOT that you have to, by the way, but it's a nice option to have. Medium coverage. Natural-matte finish. 12-hour oil free wear. Won't clog pores or cause breakouts. Sweat + humidity resistant. Who said diamonds were a girls best friend?

3. MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Water Proof Foundation

Looking for a foundation or a concealer that'll last 36 hours? Your search is over! Though I do have a lot of questions about how you stay awake for 36 hours? Like are you doing this just with coffee? Neither rain nor tears can budge this oil-free waterproof product. Pro Longwear Nourishing Water Proof Foundation literally repels moisture from the face. LITERALLY. With a medium/full coverage formula and a natural satin finish, your sweat doesn't stand a chance.
