As temperatures soar across the region, these are the beauty products you’ll want in your makeup bag

Unfortunately for us the heat can really take its toll on your makeup. But the secret to staying immaculately made-up in the summer sun is all in the prep and your product choice. Too much makeup in peak heat can clog your pores and trigger a breakout, so we recommend keeping it as light as possible and opting for water and sweat proof formulas such as the five we’ve listed below.

Sweat proof makeup

Becca Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation
This longwearing medium coverage foundation features a unique micro fine powder that absorbs oil so your complexion remains fresh and shine free throughout the day. It also helps to minimise the appearance of pores and fine lines while creating a lasting soft-focus effect.

This Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base from Nars creates a seamless canvas that helps keep cream and powder colour looking fresh and just applied, all day. Fortified with a special deep-sea extract and an antioxidant rice extract, it dries on contact and keeps the delicate eyelid smooth and ready for eyeshadow application.

Sweat proof makeupClinique Fit Workout 24-Hour Mascara
Clinique has a whole sweat proof range of makeup to keep you looking fresh during exercise (or for when you’re outside in the Dubai heat) but the Workout 24-Hour Mascara is definitely the star of the range. The volumising and lash-defining formula uses Advance Thermal Technology, which holds the mascara to your lashes until removed with warm water.

Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Blotting Powder
This universal blotting powder contains an exclusive pore-diffusing complex that absorbs shine and gives you a natural matte finish. The translucent powder is completely traceless against all skin tones and won’t cake, clog pores, creep into fine lines, or disturb your makeup.

Now you’ve sorted your summer makeup, what about your hair?
