This is my third Sweat Proof Summer Makeup post, you can check out the old ones here and here. This is my current makeup routine so I don't end up looking like an oil slick throughout the day. I have oily/combination skin and I really suffer from oiliness on my nose, forehead and chin. These are the products I'm loving right now to keep my skin sweat free this summer.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Light: I've used this primer for years now and still love it. It doesn't break me out, gives my skin a soft and matte texture, perfect for applying my foundation and helps to stop my face from becoming oily in hot weather. I would love to try the Smashbox Pore Minimising Primer to see how that works too, as us oily skin girls tend to have larger pores.

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Foundation: My favourite and most used foundation of the year, I'm pretty sure I tried another foundation once and after a week went back to this one. It's made for people with oily and acne prone skin and really helps to not only keep oil at bay but hide imperfections. 

Maybelline Matte Maker Powder: I was a lover of the Maybelline Dream Matte powder that was discontinued a while ago, so when I finished my final one of those I switched over to the Maybelline Matte Maker. It's exactly the same. This powder is amazing at keeping my skin shine free in summer. If it's really hot I will need to blot and powder once during the day but that's it. Before writing this post I decided to try out the Rimmel Stay Matte powder, I was not impressed. So many people rave about that powder but my Maybelline Matte Maker actually stood up better, even on a hotter day. 

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder: Now this isn't a mattifying product in nature, but it keeps my under eye area from creasing like nothing else, all while brightening the area without making it look oily. I have been super impressed with this product and it solved the issue of creasing I was having with my Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blushes: Sometimes I will wear my makeup all day at work, 8 hours, and then need to go out afterwards. Usually I'd have to reapply my blush, but not with these babies. I picked up the Tarte Bling It on blush palette around Christmas and have absolutely fallen in love with the formulation of these blushes. They last such a long time, even in hot weather and they're super pigmented.

Nars Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base: Yes I am one of many people with extremely oily eyelids, that will end up with a creased, smudgy mess if I don't wear eyeshadow primer. This Nars one is by far the best I've ever tried. A little bit goes a long way and keeps my eyeshadow looking perfect from the start to the end of my day when I decide to take it off.

Benefit They're Real Mascara: I don't know what I'd do without this mascara. Now I have oily eyelids year round, not just in summer when the weather is hot. This is my year round mascara to stop me from getting black smudges above my eyes. Not only does it stay put and not smudge, but it volumises and lengthens my extremely short and straight eyelashes as well.
