Summer isn’t over … yet! There’s no need to worry about touching up your makeup on hot sultry days with these beauty long lasting beauty products! Here’s how to create care-free, waterproof and heatproof makeup looks.


Prime your skin and your eyes to guarantee the longevity of your makeup and the brilliance of the colours. You can use primers like Laura Mercier’s Radiance Primer or Hourglass’ Veil Mineral Primer and for the eyes, Nars’ Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.



Trade you regular skin items for products like Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer and Make Up For Ever’s Pro Bronze Fusion Bronzer, that are long lasting and waterproof.



Set your skin with a translucent and weightless powder like Laura Mercier’s Translucent Pressed Setting Powder to prolong the wear of your makeup while staying color true throughout the day.



For the eyes, keep it simple by using a long wearing cream eyeshadow like Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Eye Colour, lining your eyes with Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner and coating your lashes with Diorshow Waterproof Mascara.



For perfectly groomed brows, define with Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Brows Brow Gel.



Use Dior’s Universal Contour Lipliner, a sheer, non smudge lip liner to prolong the wear of your lipstick (it will keep your lips perfectly defined from 9 to 6… seriously). Then apply your lip shade of choice. If matte lipsticks are your thing, try Marc Jacobs’ Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick or KVD’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick.



Finish off your makeup look with a setting spray like Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray to ensure that your makeup will stay fresh the longest possible.
