if there’s one thing that is absolutely necessary for me during the summer, it’s sweat-proof makeup. and ice cream. lots of ice cream.
i’ve found a great combination of sweat-proof products that actually last all day.
i’ve been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo
in Medium Brown for a few months and love it. previously, i used a soft brown eyeshadow that i had in my makeup bag to fill in my brows, but this brow powder is a game changer. the color matches great with my hair and skintone and the powder is super easy to apply. i like to outline my brows with the lighter shade and fill in with a mix of the light and dark. it’s natural looking, which is important to me when looking for a brow powder/pencil. it doesn’t smudge off, even during a sweat-filled workout.
in conjunction with my brow powder, i use the Benefit High Brow Glow Illuminator
to highlight just under my brows. i prefer highlighters in pencil form, so this has been really great for me to use. it goes on smooth and just requires a little dabbing with my fingers to rub it in and give my brows a natural looking glow.
if i’m wearing eyeshadow, i use Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow
in Barely Branded as my eye primer. it’s silky smooth and delivers a nice amount of creamy shadow without feeling weighed down by eyeshadow. i typically cover my lid with it and then do a light dusting of a powder eyeshadow over top. the shimmery light color creates a really pretty base to help powder eyeshadows really pop. they weren’t kidding when they write ’24 hr’ on the packaging – my eyeshadow was in perfect condition after a very sweaty workout.
i branched out a bit and picked up the Sephora Collection Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in Teal the last time i was at the store. the stick of liner is nice and small, so you can do a thin line or use the smudge tool on the other end of the liner to create a bolder look. the color payoff is great and the eyeliner goes on really easily. again, this stuff lasted through a workout, even with sweat dripping over my eyes. it looked exactly how it did before i exercised, no smudges or running. i intend to pick up the liner in black next time i’m in Sephora because it’s great for the summer!
