How to NOT sweat your makeup off

Author: Danielle Cauchi   Date Posted: 1 November 2018 

Summer's here, and you know what that means. Bring on the sweat and runny mascara! Here are a few beauty hacks on how not to sweat off a gorgeously put together makeup look.


Summer is usually the time of year where us Aussie girls are the busiest.

Not only is it the best time of year for pool parties, barbecues, days at the beach and nights on the town, but we also have Christmas and New Year’s parties to attend. Getting glammed up for these events is difficult when the sun blazes down on us with scorching temperatures that can reach pretty close to 50°C!

Investing in good waterproof / sweatproof makeup is essential for the warmer months, especially for our Australian summer. 

Here are some of our favourite waterproof / sweatproof makeup products that will beat the summer heat.
