In an ideal world, you’d probably
wear no makeup all summer,
but IRL, there are going to be times
when you need a little something.
Give your face a fighting chance
against heat, humidity and
all that sweat with new products
that help you at least look
like you’re keeping your cool.

1. On a steamy day, an  extra layer of anything  on your face sounds  as appealing as a cup  of chowder. But color-correcting  Almay 5-in-1  Primer is lighter and more  breathable than other  primers we've tried,  hanging on to foundation,  evening out skin tone and  helping reduce redness.  $14, at drugstores

2. The days of the mysteriously disappearing  eye shadow are over! Squirt a little Make Up For  Ever Aqua XL Color Paint on your finger, smooth  it on lids and then learn to love it, because  it's not going anywhere (until you take it off with waterproof-makeup remover). $25, sephora.com

3. Apply your  mascara, let it dry,  then layer the clear  Cargo Cosmetics  Swimmables  Waterproof Mascara  Top Coat over it. The  innovative product  turns any formula  waterproof, so you're  ready for a weepy  wedding or a late-July  outdoor happy hour.  $22, ulta.com

4. Seal your look in  place with a spritz of  Physicians Formula  #InstaReady Setting  Spray. It acts as a  top coat to keep your  makeup looking fresh  for hours. (Bonus:  The hydrating,  cooling formula feels  blessedly refreshing.)  $13, at drugstores
