My Sweatproof Makeup Routine

As someone who lives in one of the most humid cities in the world, I quickly grew tired of my makeup melting off of my face. Throughout my quest of trying to find a routine that makes my makeup withstand the heat, I’ve discovered some amazing secrets. Check out my long-lasting and sweatproof makeup routine below!

Step 1: Wash Face with Hydrating Cleanser
My Choice: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel

Step 2: Apply Mehron Skin Prep Pro Toner
Mehron’s Toner is the secret to sweatproof makeup. It creates a moisture barrier that will allow your makeup to last under the hottest and stressful conditions. Apply this toner to your face with a cotton ball and let it sit for at least 5 minutes before moving on to the next step.

Step 5: Apply a Concealer
Apply the concealer like the picture below. Your concealer should be 1-2 shades lighter than the skin, which will be applied under the eye. Make sure you let it dry for 2-3 minutes before blending. As you blend it in with a beauty blender, make sure that you blend upwards. Tips: If you want to make your face look slimmer, extend your under-eye concealer near the hairline. My Choice: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
