Makeup: Products for long lasting makeup

Summer may be on its way out but the heat is here to stay.  We have little to no humidity but those rising temperatures definitely mess with my makeup.  On especially hot days I like to make sure I use the right products before I start my routine.  Here are my picks for a flawless long lasting face!


Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer-  I put a pea sized portion of this primer on after I moisturize but before I put on my foundation.  It's a great way to get that smooth canvas so you can build on a "flawless" face.  It's also oil free so it doesn't clog my pores.  I've used other primers that actually cause breakouts!  I don't use this everyday, but it's great for a long day when you don't have time to be concerned with touch ups.

NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base-  This stuff is magic!  Unlike the foundation primer, I use this every single day.  I love wearing eye shadow but I hate those weird creases you get after a few hours of wear.  This shadow base works all day and can stand even the hottest of days.

Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer-  This primer is the only way I can properly wear lipstick.  It keeps the color nice and vibrant and prevents awful feathering.  Ultimate plus: it makes your regular lipstick kiss proof!

What do you use to beat the heat and humidity?  Let me know in the comments below!




  1. I loveee NARS so much - I'm eyeing up that primer now!

  2. ohhh that Nars smudge proof eyeshadow base sounds awesome!

  3. Thanks for the hot weather tips :)

  4. I've always had a problem with my eyeshadow creasing... so I just stopped wearing it all together. I may have to look into that NARS eyeshadow base!

  5. Kiss proof?! I am sold! My boyfriend always hides from me haha Does that mean you can safely drink while wearing it? I always stain my cups.

  6. Thank you for posting this! I'm always really hesitant about trying primers (even though I really want to) because my skin is so sensitive and prone to breakouts. I've tried other eyeshadow primers and they haven't done the job, so I may look into that one you posted, too!
