9 Essential Beauty Products for All the Sweaty Ladies Out There
You know those women who never (ever) schvitz? Like, even when it’s 100 degrees outside with 80 percent humidity? Yeah, that’s not us. (Cue dripping sweat, chafing thighs and smudged makeup.) While a certain amount of, shall we say, dewiness is to be expected as temperatures rise, don’t settle for products that will leave you with mascara running down your face and a T-zone that your friends can see themselves in. Here, nine products that can withstand it all.
Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer
Sweat-proofing should start at the base. We suggest Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer, which creates a smooth matte canvas for any subsequent makeup. It’s also packed with salicylic acid, which treats existing blemishes and prevents new ones from popping up, as well as aloe, vitamin E and ginseng, which help calm redness, reduce inflammation and promote a shine-free complexion.
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue
Forget about foundation. Use a BB or CC cream instead. It’s lighter, it sweats off less and itprovides ample coverage and tint.
BOSCIA Green Tea Blotting Linens
Three words: oil-blotting linens. Combat a day’s worth of shine with a few blotting sheets. Your makeup will stay intact and the blotting sheets won’t clog pores like a powder would.
Missha Matt Painting Rouge
We’re all guilty of a little sweat mustache. And unfortunately, that usually puts our liquid lipstick in disarray. Swap your go-to lip look for a glass by Missha. It glides on, doesn’t budge and feels comfortable through multiple sips and bites. (And it’s got nothing on that sweat ’stache.)
IT COSMETICS BYE BYE UNDER EYE
Need something to cover up dark circles under your eyes? What about that blemish on your cheek? Sure, concealer works… until it slides off of your face from the heat. Enter IT Cosmetics’ cult-favorite Bye Bye Under Eye, which, in addition to containing anti-aging ingredients, is ultra opaque and won’t melt off the second you’re exposed to direct sunlight.

Eyeko Sport Waterproof Eyeliner
We’ve all veered into raccoon territory when our favorite liner has melted away. Don’t sweat it, though, there’s a solution: Eyeko’s highly waterproof liner, which was made to stay on “under extreme sport conditions,” works for everything from brunch alfresco to a SoulCycle class.
L.A. GIRL PRO SETTING HD MATTE FINISH SPRAY
No matter how long you primp and prep, humidity has a way of erasing all of your hard work in a matter of minutes. Set your look with a couple of spritzes and carry this spray with you to keep your makeup locked in.

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum
Call this product magic, because not only will it help speed-dry your hair after your morning shower but it will keep it pretty darn sleek for the rest of the day. Those pesky flyaways? Yeah, they’re no match for this product, either.

TOO FACED BETTER THAN SEX WATERPROOF MASCARA
Mascara running down our face has happened to us one too many times this season. That’s why we’ve officially switched to Too Face’s foolproof formula. Basically, you’ll never look like you’re having a breakdown when, in reality, you’re just outside day-drinking with your besties.
