Tried and True Makeup for Warm Weather

Updated: Apr 21, 2020

Don't sweat it! I want to give you some tired and true foundation favorites of mine to get you through until the sweet cool breeze of Fall rolls in!

I will also answer the mysterious question of how in the world do you re-apply sunscreen when wearing makeup?

Liquid Foundation

Powder foundation

Setting Spray



Typically powder is the go-to for summer sweating, however I'm here to tell you that there are still options for us liquid foundation lovers!

My fav's:

Hourglass Immaculate® Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free-$56

I have gone back to this foundation summer after summer, however the lightest shade is still a bit dark for me. It also covers well, but for someone like me with hyperpigmetation you may need to use concealer as well! It runs a bit dry so I would only use if you have an oily to combination skin type! Hourglass packs a punch with their price tag but you can justify the heavy cost with the high end ingredients that are working to improve your skin as you wear it!

“Immaculate was developed for those who want a matte finish without endless touch-ups. We surveyed some of our clients about it, and many testified that the appearance of their acne scars and breakouts had improved. It’s a lifesaver for women with oily skin.”—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Makeup-12.99

This was my high school favorite! It has been around for years! I can literally guess when someone is wearing this foundation because I know it so well! I steered away from it as I got older only because my acne became a bit high maintenance. Not only is the price great, it also comes in two forms- for oily/combination skin or a normal/dry skin!

It has a buildable full coverage and it stays matte for up to 24 hours. It contains SPF as well to protect your skin and Hyaluronic acid to hydrate it!

COVER FX Power Play Foundation-$44

This is a new to me foundation. It claims to be for all skin types and is worth a try!

It is vegan and also considered "clean" via Sephora! It is labeled "sweat proof" with a matte finish. For those living in large cities it also formulated with a pollution defense!


Makeup Forever Velvet Skin Blurring Powder Foundation-$38

I love to use Makeup Forever on clients because it is so long lasting and photographs beautifully. However for daily use, if you have sensitive skin, like me, you may want to skip this all together.

It is a long lasting powder foundation that feels light but gives great coverage. It has a blurring effect that smooths and mattifies, which is great for summer selfies!

Cover FX Pressed Mineral Foundation $38

This is a talc-free option that can be built up to provide full coverage! It controls shine without giving you a dry caked on look or feel!

It contains skin loving ingredients that calm and hydrate as you wear it!

WANDER BEAUTYWanderlust Powder Foundation-$40

I keep this secret weapon in my purse (who am I kidding, diaper bag), at all times! It slides on the skin like butter and makes you feel like you are wearing nothing!


Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray $33

With 4.5 stars and 9k plus reviews, this setting spray is the real deal! It will give your makeup extra staying powder to fight against a summer meltdown by lowering the temperature of your makeup to keep everything in place! Say what?! It feels weightless on the skin and the mist is so very fine, it feels refreshing! The good news is, it is suitable for most skin types!


Some makeup includes sunscreen, if not we typically apply it underneath our makeup, but every few hours we are instructed to "re-apply" sunscreen, but how?

Look no further!

COOLAMakeup Setting Spray SPF 30-$36

An organic based spray that will help with reducing shine while refreshing your UV protection! If you are out in the sun, keep this handy! Your skin will thank you in the long run!
