So, we know how it usually works. We’re proceeding with our normal beauty routine and minding our own business, until we realize that it's suddenly time for a beauty product reboot, thanks to the humidity outside! Almost every single beauty product we own is suddenly way too dark or way too heavy. However, thankfully for all us girls, we have found some amazing and super-convenient products to beat the weather! Here is a list of makeup products that can take on the heat and even sweltering humidity like a boss!
1. The Magical Primer
If you’re trying to save your skin from looking like the oily-greasy version of itself that it becomes when it's humid outside, then the starting point has to be a primer. A primer is a great way to mattify your skin and smoothen out all the lines and wrinkles, if needed!

2. The Super Natural Mineral Powder Foundation
Soon, it’s going to be that time of year when your skin is ALWAYS glistening. No, not the way you would want it to! It’s basically Swamp City out there and we need something to hold down our makeup without clogging our pores - even when it mixes with sweat and oil! Ladies, it's time to ditch our favourite liquid foundation, for a while at least, and opt for an all-natural, super-clean mattifying mineral powder!
POPxo Recommends: Extra Virgin Minerals™ Loose Powder Foundation
3. The Super Cool Concealer
This product is extra cool, because it lets you ditch the full-face-foundation routine, which, to be very honest, is the last thing you want to do be doing with all the humidity! The little but oh-so-effective formula provides natural-looking coverage with a soft, matte finish, even on the most steamy days! Just dab some under your eyes, around your nose and anywhere you see any blotches. Merge it well into your face to fake a full-foundation look without actually using any!

4. The Illuminating Eye Shadow
We know a nice smoky-eye look with a pitch-black liner is great for most occasions, but with the humidity all set to spike, especially during the day, dark eye-makeup feels and looks rather heavy. However, don’t worry, we have the perfect solution! Just put on a long-lasting eyeshadow (preferably in a pastel shade), for the perfect summer look.

5. The Oh-So Awesome Lip And Cheek Stain
Craving a pop of colour minus the heavy feeling of lipstick, gloss or blush-on? Try out a lip or cheek stain to get the perfect look. And the best part is, it literally feels like nothing!
