Heat and makeup don’t always go hand in hand. Different cream and oil ingredients in the products mean that when they come in contact with sweat, they slip and slip, especially if you are wearing a thick layer, which does not adhere to the skin as easily as when you have less products on. Powdered products, on the other hand, can run down your face with sweat, so it’s a fine line.
We asked five famous makeup artists to share their sweat-wicking makeup favorites so you know exactly what you need, plus good lighting, of course, when you’re getting ready for your next Zoom call in the middle of. rising temperatures.
Ditch your compact because it will react to heat and sweat. The same goes for loose powder, says Adrian Jacobs

âThe more cakes you bake, the higher the chances of your makeup melting. Use less foundation and go for a foundation that gives you 60-70% coverage instead of full coverage. Ditch your compact because it will react to heat and sweat. The same goes for loose powder, use too much and it will run out. You need products that dig into your skin rather than sit on it, âsays Jacobs.
Eyes: Mascara by Mavala or L’OrÃ©al, Eyeliner gel kohl Faces. âI used these products on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for Fanney Khan (2018) and they withstood a streak of rain. Plus, the oily skin and AC environment means that there isn’t much you can do with your brows as applying powder will make them run down. The only product that works for me is Benefit’s Gimme Brow, which comes with a mascara wand for easy application.
Confront: Foundation by Kryolan; concealer Dermacol; Smashbox primers; Armani luminous foundation; loose powders in various shades of Bobbi Brown.
Eyes: Pigments of Morphe (Jacobs swears by his brushes).
Cheeks: Cha Cha shade from Benefit.
Lips: Benetint by Benefit or a long-lasting cream lipstick; Laneige lip balms and masks.
I like to prime the eyes first with concealer instead of a primer, says Vibha Gusain

Confront: Primer by MAC Prep + Prime; Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation or Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Foundation; Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer; Makeup Forever Ultra HD compact powder.
Eyes: “I like to prime the eyes with concealer first instead of a primer. Pat McGrath Labs eyeshadows are the best. They are extremely durable, they don’t wrinkle and last a very long time,” Gusain explains. For eye pencils and eyeliner, she prefers Kay Beauty by Katrina Kaif. Gusain’s favorite drugstore mascara is Volume Express Colossal Mascara by Maybelline New York, or Better Than Sex by Too Faced.
Cheeks: Tints by Benefit and Makeup Forever cream blushes.
Lips: Dior Addict lip tattoo; Benefit from the color of the lips and cheeks; Bobbi Brown lip tints.
Summer is when you let your skin breathe. You need products that look like a second skin and the less you use, the better. This is what will make your makeup last longer, says Florian Hurel

âSummer is when you let your skin breathe. You need products that look like a second skin and the less you use, the better. This is what will make your makeup last longer, âexplains Hurel.
Confront: Chanel luminous water-based foundation. Hurel adds that while it’s not the best if you’re looking for full coverage, it works well if you’re looking for a dewy, natural look. Sometimes he also likes to use the concealer stick from Makeup Forever because the thicker texture provides good coverage.
If you have to attend an online event, MAC Setting and Matte Finishing Powder works well. Or choose Makeup Forever banana powder for daily use.
Eyes: Tom Ford’s cream eye shadows have long-lasting pigments which are really good for Indian skin tone. âI like to use the LakmÃ© pencil for the eyeliner because it’s easy to work and blend and it holds up well too. Benefit mascara is awesome; however, I still like to mix two mascaras with different brushes, one for volume with a thinner brush and one for spreading length with a large brush. Bobbi Brown mascara is also great for the length and it lasts a long time, âhe says. In addition to a pencil, Hurel uses Tom Ford liquid liner as a finisher because he thinks it stays on the longest.
Lips: âEstÃ©e Lauder is my favorite for the lips. They have fabulous nudes and the texture is comforting and creamy, âsays Hurel.
To blush: Liquid shades from Benefit or blush creams from Bobbi Brown.
In the summer, I go by the adage less is more. When the weather is not ideal then you have to work smart. If I know someone is sweating more then I will try a rosy look with creamy products instead of powders, says Bhavya Arora

âIn summer, I go by the saying less is more. When the weather is not ideal then you have to work smart. If I know someone is sweating more then I will try a rosy look with creamy products instead of powders so that there is less chance of the products getting patchy on the skin. Icing the skin and / or using aloe vera gel before makeup is a trick that works for me. Replace your hydration routine with products like Farsali Oil that will hydrate the skin but are not oily or sticky. Plus, primer really is your best friend in the summer, âsays Arora.
Confront: Smashbox Photo Finish HD Primer; Double Wear EstÃ©e Lauder Long-Wear Foundation; Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Correctors; Smashbox compact powder and Laura Mercier loose powder.
Eyes: âI normally use my concealer, powder it and use it as an eye primer. Most eye shadows remain if you prime the lids well. I use Huda Beauty, Stila and Dior palettes, âexplains Arora. For the pencils, Arora uses Charlotte Tilbury’s Rock ‘N’ Kohl eyeliner or Maybelline kajal pencil. Finally, try the Diorshow On Stage Liner or any of Tom Ford’s, and the waterproof Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
Lips: Maybelline Superstay Matte, Dior Addict lip tattoo.
Cheeks: Benetint from Benefit.
My rules for making makeup last long in the summer are a good prep and prep routine that prepares the skin for makeup, explains Arti Nayar.

“My rules for long-lasting makeup in the summer are a good prep and priming routine that preps skin for makeup and sets makeup with loose powder with a puff and setting spray at the end.” Nayar said.
Confront: Primers by Smashbox; Under (cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer by Marc Jacobs; Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream; and Guerlain 24-karat gold base is an excellent serum to prepare and prime the skin. She also uses Bobbi Brown’s under-eye cream to nourish the skin before makeup. For foundations, Nayar uses Dior Forever Skin Glow, Even Better Glow from Clinique or Hollywood Flawless Filter from Charlotte Tilbury.
Eyes: Waterproof mascara from Maybelline; Smashbox or Charlotte Tilbury’s black kajal; Viseart Matte Eyeshadow Palettes and Cream Eyeshadow Palettes from Charlotte Tilbury or Tom Ford.
