5 Sweat-Proof Drugstore Makeup Products You Need On Your Radar
Now that summer is here, we’re officially going to be living it UP! So naturally, our makeup needs to keep up with our hot girl summer schedule without melting or moving an inch. We swear, these budget-friendly buys will never slip ‘n’ slide and they’ll keep your makeup sweat-proof and even mask-proof… You can thank us later! Whether you’re hitting the beach or going for brunch with your crew, here are five makeup products you can trust in.
1. For Feathered Brows: NYX The Brow Glue Instant Brow Styler, $8
Laminated, feathered brows are the hottest brow look RN, but keeping your hairs in place during the summer can be a real struggle. That was until we discovered the NYX Professional Makeup The Brow Glue Instant Brow Styler, $8. It keeps your brows lifted and locked in place like no other drugstore gel on the shelves. The strong-hold glue-like formula is flake-resistant, non-sticky, and dries down with a glossy yet natural finish. It’s also transfer-proof and water-proof making it a no-brainer for the summer months. Plus, like all NYX Professional Makeup products, it’s vegan and cruelty-free.
2. For Long Lashes: Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara, $10
Panda eyes are not sexy, which is why it’s wise to upgrade to waterproof mascara during the summer. Our go-to is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara, $10, which is also loved by Meghan Markle, and TBH, we totally understand the hype. The fan-style brush has ten layers of bristles so it can separate and build the lashes, which gives a feathered, full lash effect. The formula is also infused with three different essential oils (rose oil, argan oil, and safflower oil) to soften and nourish the lash and prevent them from looking or feeling brittle. Finally, it’s easily buildable so it can take you from an everyday mascara look to sexy voluminous lashes in under a minute.

3. For A Full Pout: L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick, $11
This summer, not only do you need a sweat-proof lipstick, but you also need to find a mask-proof formula. This formula was recommended to us by Beyoncé’s go-to MUA; Sir John. According to Sir John, it can even last throughout Beyoncé’s two-hour performances; he said: “It’s basically like keeping your makeup on through two hours of cardio.”
We’ve been relying on it for the past year and we’re obsessed. It’s lightweight, super-pigmented, and comfortable to wear. Plus, the heart-shaped applicator makes shaping the lips and adding dimension so easy, you don’t even need a lip liner!
4. For Beautiful Skin: L’Oreal Skin Paradise Water Infused Tinted Moisturizer, $14
We’ve been wearing this easy-to-use skin tint non-stop since we tried it, and we can confirm it holds up even in the Dubai summer sun. The 70% water-based formula offers light to medium coverage with broad-spectrum SPF 2, but don’t forget to wear proper sunscreen underneath. The tinted moisturizer is also infused with a blend of skin-loving ingredients like soothing aloe and brightening ginger to quench your skin for a radiant glow. We love it as it feels super creamy yet lightweight and wears well throughout the day. It also promises 24-hour moisture and will boost levels of skin hydration by 10.2% in just five days with regular use.
5. To Lock Everything In Place: NYX Professional Makeup Matte Finish Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, $9
Don’t take any chances, lock your makeup in place with this NYX Professional Makeup Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray, $9. The mattifying spray will work overtime to reduce and combat summer shine while blurring the appearance of pores. The lightweight mist is also super breathable and comfortable on the skin. Another major bonus? It’s cruelty-free and vegan.
