    • Nicole

      I agree on Guerlain Parure Extreme! I wish I could buy the lightest shade (Asia exclusive?), otherwise I love everything about it. Once it sets, it feels like it won’t budge for anything. It has lasted for me through oily skin and sweat and sunshine and rain drops. It lasts ALL DAY with some blotting to take away the shine. It’s an HG product, for sure! :D

    Best foundation for hot days? UV Perfect SPFS from L’oreal

  24. Lo

    I think one of the best sunscreens I’ve try is La Roche Posay’s Anthelios (without parabenes).
    If it’s really necessary wear make up I think the best option is powder mineral foundation ( I like Bare minerals!)
    I think best waterproof mascara can be some of MAC mascaras perhaps…

  25. Charlie

    Best Sunscreen: Shiseido SPF 60 PA++

    Foundation: Neutrogena Skin Enhancers SPF 20 (it’s sooo super light and doesn’t melt off! I wore it to Vegas in July when it was 112 out there and it stayed on all day! No breakouts either! Definitely better than Korres Watermelon Tinted Moisturizer which I thought was too thick and didn’t blend into my skin at all!)

    Best Waterproof Mascara: I just use Tarte’s Light, Camera, Lashes! and it doesn’t melt off or anything. I assume this is for going in the water? Then probably something from MAC.

  26. FlyingBuffalo

    Best Sunscreen: Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 50
    Best Foundation for hot days: Jane Iredale’s Amazing Base (powder). It doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything, plus its SPF 20!
    I don’t wear waterproof mascara. It’s too hard to take off!

  27. Sunscreen: MAC SPF 50, because it’s SPF 50!
    Foundation: None, I prefer a tinted moisturizer set with a mineral powder
    Mascara: Diorshow Waterproof

  28. Clara

  36. Dermalogica Super Sensitive Sunblock is THE best sunblock ever. Great sun protection and it gives skin a FLAWESS even, natural glow and airbrushed look when on.

    Dermalogica Sheer Tint Moisture. Tinted Moisturiser, glowy & dewy, yet flawless and you can put a pressed powder to set and it looks sensational!

    Mascara would have to me MAC Pro Lash, with the 205 Fan brush!!

  37. Amanda

  41. Carolyn

    1. NOT neutrogena!! lol probably avene
    2. Revlon colorstay
    3. covergirl.

  42. Vijaya

    My favorite face sunscreen is the MAC face protect primer. My body is always, ALWAYS covered, so I don’t really have a body sunscreen.

    My favorite foundation is MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus, for any day, but especially on hot days, because I find that sweat doesn’t tend to move it around much on me.

    I don’t really like mascara. The only time I do anything to my eyelashes is when I get eyeshadow on them. Then I use the mini MAC 204 I got from the holiday collection eye brushes to comb out my lashes, and if that doesn’t solve it I use BE Buxom, but I don’t think that’s waterproof.

  43. Karen

    Neutrogena sport SPF 70
    guerlain parure compact foundation with crystal pearls SPF 20
    majolica majorca waterproof mascara is the best lengthening n seperating Japanese mascara .. HG product not too pricey

  44. Krista

    Best sunscreen: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun Block

    Best foundation for hot days: I don’t wear different foundation based on the temperature, but it is almost always hot in Houston. So, I stick with my MAC Studio Fluid

    Best water proof mascara: Yuck, waterproof mascara sucks!

  45. monika-luiza

    Best sunscreen? la roche-posay anthelios XL SPF 50 fluid
    Best foundation for hot days? no foundation at all or estee lauder double wear light as it really stays on and doesn’t melt off
    Best waterproof mascara? I don’t use waterproof mascara, because it makes my lashes to stiff

  46. Lo

    Best sunscreen?
    for face : Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream Sun Defence Oil free SPF 50, for body: Piz Buin Allergy SPF 50- an absolute godsend for my sun sensitive, heat rash prone skin.

    Best foundation for hot days?
    I don’t use foundation, I just use what I use all year round, oil free concealer and MAC MSFN.
    Best waterproof mascara?

    I personally don’t like spending a lot on waterproof mascara, since I don’t often use it. I use Barry M waterproof mascara in Black, I think it’s a reasonable quality mascara, plus it provides a natural looking lash, which for me is important in a waterproof mascara, since I only wear it to the beach, with very little other make up.

  47. Proenza

    Best Sunscreen: Kiehls Super Fluid UV Defense
    Best Foundation: Dior Diorskin Forever Extreme Flawless SPF 25

    best sunscreen- i havent fnd the best one yet, but neutrogena helioplex is what im using right now. Its a little sticky for my liking though :(

    Best foundation- definitely diorskin forever flawless, perfect for our humid weather. Lasts long on my oily face, feels light but gives perfect flawless coverage, and it’s transfer resistant too! It’s my HG!

    Best waterproof mascara-i like using cg lashblast mascara but it tends to smudge on me a little bit so id probably go for loreal’s telescopic mascara.

  66. Suncream: Spirig Day Long (You put it on once and it stays until you shower with soap!)
    Foundation: L’Oreal True Match Compact Foundation
    Waterproof Mascara: I don’t have any because they are all either clumpy, hard to get off so much that it causes me pain or they come off in water. SO I put Urban Decay Primer Potion on my lashes and then apply Benefit Bad Gal Lash in black and I’m good to go!

  69. KellyK.

    sunscreen: tinted moisturiser, but for my body anything with a high spf and is a clear spray
    foundation: i like chanels teint innocence with tons of powder, or if im going to need something lighter i use urban decay’s tinted moisturiser, its spf 20

  76. Best sunscreen? Alba Botanica Very Emollient Mineral Protection Facial Sunscreen SPF20 – I’m allergic to some chemical sunscreen ingredients and I have oily skin, so it’s been pretty hard for me to find a mineral sunscreen that doesn’t make me an oil slick. Alba Botanica’s new line is awesome and feels incredible for having 8-14% zinc oxide!!

    Best foundation for hot days? MUFE F&B!

    Best waterproof mascara? Kiss Me Heroine Long & Curl. TOTALLY budgeproof and this is coming from a someone on which Shiseido Mascara Base topped with Maybelline Full ‘n Soft WP smudged on by 4pm.

    -NARS Black Orchid Waterproof Mascara. hands down.
