Stepping out in the summers wearing makeup can turn out to be an absolute nightmare, especially if you have oily skin. Why? Well, all the excess oil, sweat and humidity can melt your makeup and make it run down your face in a horrible, horrible mess.

Sounds absolutely icky, we know. But guess what? This situation can totally be avoided by using the right kind of makeup products. Yes, it’s really that simple.

Therefore, here’s a list of all the summer-appropriate makeup products you need to add to cart right away to prevent the summer heat from bringing your makeup game down!

Primer

Let primer be your beauty BFF this summer. It not only fills in the pores, fine lines and wrinkles, but also restricts excess sebum production. Additionally, it forms a protective layer between your skin and makeup; thereby preventing your foundation from melting and ensuring your makeup lasts all day long.
