Finding summer-proof makeup is harder than resisting the drunchies after a blackout, and we all know how that goes. *Looks at the pizza box sitting on my bedroom floor* We put so much shit on our faces that finding everything in waterproof, sweat-proof, and melt-proof form is a migraine. The hardest product to find, IMO, has to be sweat-proof concealer. Concealer is bae, concealer is life. It has helped me achieve some very good selfies. In the summer, though, I seriously struggle because it seems as though it always melts right off my face no matter how much powder I put on. FML. I’ve finally done the endless searching and found six sweat-proof concealer options that won’t slide off your face. You’re welcome.
1. Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Concealer
Concealer sticks basically guarantee perfection. They’re pretty easy to use, and they almost always stay creamy while still being waterproof. Amazing. This stick promises 12 hours of full, matte, and oil-free coverage and stays waterproof, even if it’s 90 degrees outside.
2. MAC Cosmetics MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer
MAC never disappoints like, ever, so you can always count on it to deliver what it intends to do. This concealer is v creamy, super lightweight, and leaves a natural-looking matte finish. It’s also water-resistant, protects against scummy UV rays, and offers shades for a gazillion undertones, so you’ll def find your perfect match.
3. LANCÔME Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer
Obviously, we all know how crucial a good under-eye concealer is. There’s no way we’d be going to work every single morning without it. How else would we hide our hangovers, sleepless nights, and any signs of Britney Spears 2007-level stress?! This formula is waterproof, super resistant to any shit that tries to tear you down, and still provides all the coverage you need for stress, exhaustion, and aging.
4. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer
I really love IT Cosmetics. I’ve recently started using their products and wow, am I impressed. And no, that was not a paid compliment. This sweat-proof concealer is no joke, either. It’s full of amazing things like anti-aging technology (whatever that entails), full coverage for any kind of imperfection, and a matte finish so you never have to look like a grease ball again this summer.
5. Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer
This concealer is about as summer-proof as you can get without going entirely au naturale. It’s loaded with a shit ton of hydration so you never dry out, but it’s also oil-free and so lightweight that you’ll probs forget you’re wearing any to begin with. It dries matte and promises at least 12 hours of transfer, sweat, humidity, and water resistance.
6. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
This is everyone’s favorite must-have concealer for lots of reasons. For starters, this is not only a fab concealer for hiding under-eye bags, but it also happens to function as a contour wand and highlighter. It literally stays on all day, while reducing the appearance of imperfections, providing necessary hydration, and keeping your face looking (and feeling) refreshed.
