I live in Monterey so the heat is never a problem, lol! but Clinique Superfit foundation and Fyrinnae pixie epoxy eyeshadow primer lasts through workouts for me.

Covergirl Lash Blast Waterproof is a pain in the butt to take off, but in the super humid (and I’m talking 90%+ humidity) hot summer weather, that is a such good thing. UD Primer potion is a famous for a reason, and I love it, it makes even drugstore eyeshadows of dubious quality look vibrant and stay put. For foundation I really like Revlon New Complexion and I set it with Marcell Translucent Powder.

Smashbox Anti-Shine primer is amazing for very oily skin. I like to apply it with a foundation brush and smooth the edges with an oil-free moisturizer like Neutrogena. Paint pots and any waterproof mascara are must-haves as well!

I think Chanel’s waterproof eyeliners are the best ever (I use Violine, Celadon and Topaze) and Lancome waterproof eyeliners are great too, especially the bronze one. I have just been getting into using Bobbi Brown eye shadows (darker ones such as Chocolate) as liners, applied wet, and they are fantastic. I have also used Bobbi Brown cream eyeshadow in Bone as a primer and it beats everything else I have tried, and I have tried a lot. I have those weird eyelids where they touch constantly and until discovering BB’s cream eyeshadow I pretty much just restricted myself to using liners because everything else smudged quickly. Now I am able to do some decent looks with eyeshadows. 🙂
BTW, I love your site, it is on my daily to-read list. You are doing great job!!!

urban decay primer potion, mac fluidline, and benefit creaselss cream shadow! Most of my makeup stays on pretty well during the heat, but anything on my lash line eventually disappears after many hours of hot weather (summers in Vegas!).

Too Faced Shadow insurance. No matter how hot it is or how much I sweat, my eyeshadow stays in place with no creasing or smudging. Incredible stuff!

Actually using Too Faced shadow insurance or mac paint pots really have made my makeup stick during the stickiest hottest days we’ve had this summer in NYC. If I didn’t use them there’s no product that would last, I would sweat it off!

Urban decay primer potion!
I’ve even swum in this stuff and then had a shower to only have to reaply mascara and eyeliner on the waterline and curl lashes to go out in the night!
A total time saver on holiday (and yes, it was hot too!)

Skindinavia no more shine makeup setting spray is my HG. Of course, it’s not that hot where I live but when it is I usually go to mineral foundation or tinted moisturizer by LM.

prestige eyeliner, it stays on well even when I was at a tropical rain forest climate. UDPP, Clarins Double Fix Waterproofing Seal or Fasio mascara, Fasio stays well even when I was swimming in the ocean for the whole day.

Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15! When it’s hot out, the less I put on my face, the better. I can use this BB’s tinted moisturizer in lieu of both moisturizer (with sunscreen, natch) and foundation.
