Prep with primer. For a fresh and dewy complexion that truly lasts all day, always prep with primer before applying foundation. Look for a primer that contains silicone (the key ingredient in most long-wearing formulas), which will act as a barrier between humidity and your skin.
Choose a silicone-based foundation. As with primers, silicone-based foundations are truly the longest wearing and the very best option when met with moisture.
Cream, please. Play off the heat and use a cream shadow and cream-based blush instead of powder versions. Cream products give you a nice, natural-looking glow and they won’t get cakey. Look for long-wear versions for added insurance.
Mind your lashes. For lush lashes and liner that won’t run, use a waterproof liquid liner and waterproof mascara. Raccoon eyes are never a cute look.
Bonus tip: Since heat and humidity usually entails sun, don’t forget the SPF. I also always keep some blotting papers in my bag to deal with shine. If you start to sweat, piling on more powder will only look cakey.
