Being a Florida girl now for well over a decade, I feel like I am an authority on how to prevent the Summertime makeup from sliding off your face. I have some tried and true products that have made this all possible that I can’t wait to share with you. Since the temps have been pretty much hanging out in the 90’s now with lots of humidity, this post could not have come at a better time. So let’s get into it!
This mineral veil primer is essential for creating that barrier between your skin and makeup. Make sure to apply a thin layer and let dry.
No heavy foundations in the Summertime right? I am all about this CC cream by It Cosmetics. Yes, it does live up to the hype. I personally like the illuminating one and I mix it with this foundation from Beauty Counter. Perfect combo. Mix on this palette tray and apply with this brush (on sale!). Let dry.
The final and crucial part is this setting spray (it’s on sale btw!). I personally buy the minis and they last forever. It feels so foreign to spray a liquid onto a perfectly set face but trust me it works. I also make sure to use it before I take any blog photos because it prevents that dreaded makeup smear down the front of a white top when you pull it over your head.
I’m not talking about a ton of products to do this but all are essential to sweat-proof your look. I remember taking engagement pictures in the Swamp of Gainesville (literally) with sweat running down my back of my dress but my makeup did not move. If you need any additional shine touch ups put these in your purse. They are life savers. There you have it! My tried and true Florida girl products to keep you looking matte and shine-free when those scorching temps set in. What are your secret makeup weapons?
