Whew, it is getting hot already in Dallas- already 90+ degrees! Not to mention my allergies are still out of control.
These two things combined called for a much needed trip to Nordstrom for some long lasting makeup products.
I first took to the internet to do some research on the BEST PRODUCTS! I read tons of reviews and compiled a rather large list. Then, I looked to see which of those products were available at Nordstrom.
I love buying makeup at Nordstrom because they have the best return policy. If you buy the products online and they don’t work, you can send them back or exchange them for another color (even after you have tried them!)
If you go into the store they have tons of beauty experts around every corner that can help you! You can find someone in a specific section, or find a manager that knows a bit about every brand!
Plus, Nordstrom has an extensive list of beauty products! You can always find what you need there and you can count on the reviews on Nordstrom.com to help guide you.
Long Lasting Makeup Products to Get You Through Summer
1.I started with this AMAZING Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup. I am used to wearing tinted moisturizers or lighter foundation so the feeling of this product was perfect! I went with the 2.0 Intensity, but could have also gone a shade darker since summer will tan my face a bit more! I will probably go back and buy the next darker shade as well and have both handy!
2.You guys… I am obsessed with this BECCA Beach Tint® Water-Resistant Color for Cheeks and Lips. It goes on like a creamy matte. The color I picked, GUAVA, is gorgeous too! Plus, a little goes a longggg way! It also looks so pretty on your lips! You can apply this with your fingers, so just throw it in your purse and reapply when necessary! You shouldn’t have to very much because it is water resistant.
3.You can then apply the SPACE.NK.apothecary By Terry Stylo Blackstar Waterproof 3-in-1 Eye Pencil. Grab one of these in every color. The eyeshadow/liner is so beautiful. It has a sparkle to it and it stays on your lids forever. I am wearing the 5 MARRON GLACE, a really pretty brown color! I need them all now.
4.I heard so many rave reviews about this MAC Liquidlast Liner. I think it looks amazing on the top lid, but I suck sooo bad at putting liquid liner on my bottom lids. If you are the same way, here is another great pencil liner you can use! I will say that I had to scrubbbbbbb this liquid liner off at night. They are not lying when they boast about it being long-lasting! Such a great idea if you are heading to the pool or lake. This liner will NOT come off!
5.I have also heard sooo many great things about this Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Waterproof Brow Color. It was one of the most popular items on the web for brows. Unfortunately, I didn’t buy a proper brush to apply it with. Grab this brush if you are going to use the product! I had to apply it with my finger and it was exactly perfect haha! I do love the product though, it did last forever, and I am excited to try it with the right brush! The eyebrow pencil I have now comes off with the first sight of sweat.
5.Now it is time to apply my favorite new product: Supergoop! Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45. This setting powder from Supergoop goes on so soft and get this: it has SPF45!!!! You can apply it as needed throughout the day to keep your makeup in place and to reapply your sunscreen! It’s amazing. I carry it with me everywhere. I am wearing the light/medium.
6.Then you can apply your mascara. I apply this after the setting powder so that you don’t get the mascara all over your face! This Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara is such a great product and it is perfect for those dip-in-the-pool kind of days! I also love wearing it when I know I will be rubbing the heck out of my eyes from allergies. It will stay in place and won’t smear no matter how hot it is outside.
7.Lastly, apply the Supergoop! ‘Defense Refresh’ Setting Mist with Rosemary SPF 50 to further set it all in place! This setting mist also has rosemary in it and smells soooo good!
8.Oops, you CANNOT forget my all-time favorite lipstick, Clinique Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer. I am wearing blushing pop, but I have every single color and they are all amazing. My all-time fav is the cute pop. It comes with a primer so your lips also feel so soft with the lipstick on! It lasts all day (in fact, it typically gets all over my white duvet cover because I forget to take it off.
These 8 products are tried and true, literally. I tried them! They lasted all day and left such a natural, pretty look!
Grab them all at Nordstrom today!
