Summer’s great and all, but sweaty skin can sure make a mess of your makeup. Our solution? Waterproof products that give you a glowing, shine-free, smudge-free finish whether you’re lazing at the beach or splashing around in the pool.
L’Oréal has to be the queen of waterproof foundation and summer-friendly makeup. The Infallible Range provides everything a girl needs to maintain a flawless makeup finish that can handle just about any level of heat. Here are our 3 summer must-haves:
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Mattifying Primer
This is the best face primer you could ask for, smoothing and preparing your skin for foundation. The gel formula dries into a matte finish with a velvety texture that eliminates shine, and blurs large pores and imperfections.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation
If you’re looking for the best longwear foundation that offers perfect coverage but is also breathable, go and get yourself a bottle of this stuff right now. This light foundation for summer contains three oil absorbers to resist sweat, water, and transfer… but it’s also formulated to be extremely breathable, leaving you with a healthy, matte complexion that lasts all day.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Fixing Mist
For serious staying power that keeps your makeup from sliding off after a dip in the ocean, use a waterproof setting spray. This is the best makeup setting spray that we know of to fix your foundation firmly in place. Its micro-fine mist is invisible and lightweight, giving you that just-applied look for up to 24 hours.
The dos and don’ts of waterproof foundation
- If you have acne-prone or sensitive skin, try not to wear waterproof makeup every day. Save it for days when you know you’re going to be in the sun or water a lot.
- Waterproof foundation is formulated to be very long-lasting, which means you need to put in some effort to wash it off. Use a good makeup remover and wash your skin thoroughly to remove all traces of makeup at the end of the day.
