How To Get A Makeup Look You Won't Sweat Off Immediately

It'll take you from beach to BBQ.

If you're anything like us, you're probably planning on spending as much time outside as possible this summer. It was a long and very cold winter and now it is definitely time to celebrate. One thing that may need a bit of updating, though, is your warm weather beauty routine.

Luckily, there are plenty of products that will last from beach to BBQ without melting off your face—here's how to get one look we'll be relying on for the rest of the summer.

  1. Primer

    To make sure your makeup lasts all day, start things off with COVERGIRL Outlast All-Day Makeup Primer, which will keep everything in place.

  2. BB Cream

    A lightweight BB Cream like CG Smoothers contains SPF, provides light coverage, and will keep your skin hydrated all day. Blend it all over your face using a brush, if you have one, or your fingers.

  3. Foundation

    To make sure your skin looks extra ~fresh~, you can blend a light layer of COVERGIRL Ready Set Gorgeous! Foundation under your eyes and around your nose—it's oil-free so it won't clog your pores AND will provide all-day coverage.

  4. Eye shadow

    To bring your look to the next level, you can add a touch of sparkle with Bombshell ShineShadow by LashBlast. The cream formula goes on easily—like, so easily—with your fingers, so you can layer on as much (or as little) as you want, until you get your desired shade.

  5. Another eye shadow

    To make the eyes pop even more, you can layer on a powder shadow like a COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pot and use a brush to blend it out to the brow bone.

  6. Eyeliner

    To add even more definition to the eyes, line the top lid—between the lashes—with a black eyeliner, like COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire. This eyeliner is waterproof, so it'll last all day, even if you decide to pop in the pool.

  7. Mascara

    Lengthen your lashes with a waterproof mascara like COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Mascara.

  8. Colorful liner

    Finally, for a little extra pop of color—it is summer, after all—line your lower lashes with a colorful eyeliner like COVERGIRL Ink It! Gel Liner, which goes on easily and will stay in place all day.

A long-lasting makeup look that will definitely have you ready for a #covermoment at any point in your day. Boom.
