1. Go lightweight.
The heavier the products you put on your face, the greasier it can get. Less is more, as they say. Opt for a foundation, BB cream or tinted moisturizer with sheer coverage!

2. Spritz on a face mist before and after your commute.
It will keep your makeup intact while cooling off your face. Try face mists that also come with nourishing ingredients like cactus extract and aloe vera for that added radiant effect.

3. Ditch the powder.
Use creme blushes or liquid stains which won’t budge easily compared to blush powders, which can get cakey because of the sweat–making your pores more noticeable. Likewise, use blotting sheets to get rid of that shine instead of face powder.

4. Wax brows are key.
Instead of your usual brow pencils, brow tools made of wax have a thicker consistency which will hold your brows better despite the summer heat.

5. Don’t overapply your moisturizer.
Too much moisturizer won’t sink into your skin easily, giving you a greasy residue during commutes. Keep it light with just a thin layer. Besides, the humid weather keeps your skin hydrated.
