It’s heeeeeereeee. I’m talkin’ that scorching summer heat. Oh yes, it’s been hot the past few months, but it’s always the last stretch that really kills, steadily hovering in the triple digits. It’s these days when a lot of us have a hard time sitting down and doing our makeup because it’s mostly melting by the end of our routine, am I right?
Luckily, there are actually some stand out products that can beat the heat for sweat-proof beauty looks. Even better: you can score them all super affordably at your local ULTA! These picks can withstand the scorching valley and keep you looking hot when you’re feeling hotter.
Evian Mineral Water Facial Spray // This is one of my favorite skin pick-me-ups during hot days. The pure mineral water comes out in a fine mist that will cool you down and help whisk away sweat without disturbing your makeup.
NYX Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner // My holy grail drugstore liquid liner, this ultra black formula is the epitome of set-it-and-forget-it. The super fine tip offers a lot of control and is perfect for a classic cat eye, but most importantly: your liner won’t budge all day.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Stick // These are super low-maintenance eyeshadow crayons that offer a lot of pigmentation that, once set, won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. They’re great as bases for eyeshadows to make them stick on and stand out, or on their own.
NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade // Uh, is there anything worse than your brows melting down your face on hot days? You best grab yourself something that will keep them ~on fleek~ all day. Use this pomade to both fill in your eyebrows and keep them in place.
L’Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray // I never leave the house on a hot day without makeup setting spray. I find that it feels refreshing and leaves a more natural finish than loading up on the powder.
OGX Moroccan Smooth Perfection Blow Out Cream // Don’t forget that your hair needs lovin’ on long summer days, too! I personally like using this blow out cream when I let my hair air dry— the Moroccan again oil helps smooth my hair and add shine while minimizing frizz. It also protects my strands from UV damage so that the sun won’t suck the life out of my hair!
Rimmel Stay Matte Primer // I’m a combo girl, so I need products that will keep me from looking super greasy. This one has been a regular fave of mine because it doesn’t dry me out, but keeps my shine in check.
Maybelline The Mega Plus Waterproof Mascara // What makes this waterproof mascara stand out? Aside from the fact that it’s seriously smudge-proof, it keeps your lashes feeling and looking soft— not stiff.
ULTA Tinted Lip Balm // Go for a super hydrating lip balm that also adds a flirty tint to your lips. The sun can be a killer for kissable lips, don’t forget the SPF!
