Heat Proof Make Up

Living in a city means then when it gets hot it also gets sticky and humid, which is a nightmare for keeping your make up in tact throughout the day! As this is a daily battle for me, I thought I would share with you my go to products for keeping my make-up in place through the humid London weather. 

When it comes to long lasting eyeshadow I'd definitely always opt for cream shadows. Most of them are designed to last all day and are just really fuss free, which is exactly what you need when getting ready in the heat!My favourite cream eyeshadows are from Charlotte Tilbury and Maybelline

Last summer I discovered the incredible lasting power of the Tarte 12-Hour Amazonian Clay foundation. I wore this the entire time I was in New York last summer and it stayed put in 30 degree humid city heat, so this is my absolute go to for when I want my make up to last all day. On top of this I've really been loving the Mac Studio Finish Concealer as it's quite a thick product and stays in place all day.

I then always use a powder to set my make-up as it keeps shine at bay and also adds as a sort of setting layer to the foundation. Then finally to set everything into place I'd recommend using a good setting spray, the one I use is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This is what I use to set my make-up for all occasions and it makes my make up last all day and night without breaking me out!

Do you have any tips for making your make u last all day?


  1. Loved reading this post Gemma, such a lovely makeup look and perfect for beating the heat! The CT cream eye shadow pots look divine and as though they would apply so beautifully! I am yet to try anything from Tarte but I really want to! To make my makeup last I usually go for cream blushers as I find they don't slip off like powders do!

  2. The Maybelline colour tattoos really are amazing - On & On Bronze stayed crease-proof for me on holiday and it was 100 degrees most days :) xx
