The Best Waterproof and Sweat Proof Makeup | Space NK
With temperatures promising to hit late twenties this week, we decided to round up some of our favourite sweat-proof makeup products that are resist to the heat and keep your glow going all day long.

Whether you prefer minimal makeup or enjoy a full glam look, wearing makeup in hot weather can sometimes be a challenge. The key is to find formulas that have strong staying power, and you know won’t let you down. From the cream blush to the best waterproof mascara, read on for the essentials you’ll catch us with on those hot and humid summer days.

The Best Waterproof Makeup for Summer 2023


Milk Makeup

Hydro Grip Makeup Setting Spray, $26.00

Best Setting Spray To Make Your Makeup Last
Ever check your makeup during the day and realise it didn’t fully stay on? Just as good as the primer, the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Setting Spray will keep your makeup in place for up to 12 hours regardless of how hot it gets. Formulated with hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, we also like to mist this setting spray throughout the day to rehydrate our skin and refresh our makeup in hot weather.


Rare Beauty

Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, $23.00

Best Long-Lasting Liquid Blush
A true tried and tested product that we know won’t let us down is the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush. If you’ve tried it, you know that a little bit goes a long way and after you’ve applied it in the morning, it will not budge the rest of the day. You can create any look you want with it, from natural to bold to sun-kissed, whatever you’re feeling on that day.



Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick, $64.00

Best Sweat-proof Foundation
As much as we love a no-foundation day, sometimes we just need it. Whether you want to hide a bad breakout or just want an even complexion, Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation Stick is the ultimate base if you have to wear makeup in hot weather. The reason we love this particular formula is that it glides on effortlessly and can be applied to specific areas. Plus, it has amazing staying power.



Mascara Tears In Rain, $52.00

Best Waterproof Mascara That Won’t Smudge
Rain or shine, a waterproof mascara is an absolute must-have in any makeup bag; a formula that will survive any weather condition or any activity you do. Keep the panda eyes away while having long, lush lashes with Byredo Tears in Rain Mascara, which has been formulated for extreme conditions (AKA hot, summer days).



Powermatte Lip Pigment, $35.00

Best Matte Lipstick For Summer
While we love a sheer tinted lip balm in the summer, sometimes a bold colour can lift our mood and offer a fresh, clean makeup look. If you’re on the hunt for something matte that will last you all day, look no further than NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment. It won’t let you down.


Ultra Violette

Preen Screen SPF50 Reapplication Mist Skinscreen™, $42.00

Best SPF For Reapplying In The Heat
Reapplying SPF over makeup is now easy thanks to Ultra Violette Preen Screen. As religious as we are about wearing sunscreen every day, we’re not so good at reapplying it. Preen Screen is seriously lightweight and it’s invisible, so you don’t have to worry about messing up your makeup. Keep it in your bag at all times and spritz your face every two hours for ultimate protection.
