Hello lovelies! It's no secret that I have seriously oily skin. Add in the summer heat, and my face is basically an oil slick. Luckily, over the years I have tried countless moisturizers, primers, foundations, and more that promise shine-free skin, and I've found quite a few winners. So in honor of the official start of summer, I'm going to share my very favorite sweat-proof makeup!
1. NYX Shine Killer
This lightweight, clear primer is seriously my holy grail when it comes to keeping my face from melting off throughout the day. It does an amazing job of locking makeup in place- and making sure it stays there.
2. The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream
I know a mattifying moisturizer sounds a bit counter-intuitive, but stay with me on this one. I'm not sure how this little guy does it, but somehow it manages to hydrate your skin while also giving it a matte finish that lasts all day. Plus, the beachy scent of this cream is perfect for summer!
3. Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin
This oil-free foundation from Revlon is the absolute best of the best in drugstore products. It's smooth, lightweight, goes on evenly, and provides great coverage. Best of all, it works wonders controlling sweat and oil throughout the day.
4. Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray
So I know this one is definitely on the pricey side, but in my opinion it's worth every penny. I like to apply this spray at the beginning of my makeup routine and then again at the very end. It does an incredible job of keeping skin matte and preventing makeup meltdown even in the hottest weather. And if you still need more motivation to pick this one up, the bottle seriously lasts forever!
