Stay in Place Makeup
On these hot summer days, we need a foundation that can really last the distance and stay in place all day. Heat and humidity combine to cause our regular foundations to look like they are literally melting off our faces. Fortunately there are some long wearing formulations available that stay in place longer, and leave your skin looking hydrated, and the foundation looks (almost) as fresh at the end of the day as when it was first applied. Try some of these little wonders.
Revlon Youth FX™ Fill and Blur Foundation
Youth FX™ Fill + Blur Foundation with SPF 20 is the latest anti-ageing foundation from makeup experts Revlon, so you know it will work. The high coverage, super long lasting formula works to fill in and blur lines and wrinkles with micro-fillers and optical diffusers to immediately help erase the appearance of uneven skin tone, age spots and hyperpigmentation, whilst keeping your skin covered all day. It instantly brightens your skin, won’t settle in lines or look cakey during the day, and leaves the skin feeling hydrated and nourished all day. Available in nine shades. 30ml RRP $39.95.
Bioderma Photoderm BB Cream
If you prefer your foundation a little lighter over Summer, this fabulous new BB Cream from the French skincare experts Bioderma is just perfect. The lighter formula of the Bioderma Photoderm BB Cream has a super high SPF 50+ and broad spectrum protection, and lets your skin breathe, yet it still stays in place all day. We have been trying this cream at Beauty Over 40 during some sweltering hot, and humid days over the past 2 months, and it hasn’t moved! Our skin still looked dewy fresh at the end of each day. The Photoderm BB Cream blends smoothly into your skin, matching its natural tone, covering imperfections and redness, and helps to even out your complexion. Available in two tints. 40ml RRP $36.99.
Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup
Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup with SPF 10 has been a best selling Australian foundation for quite a while (and it’s Estée Lauder’s best selling foundation), because it works. It is a Beauty Editor favourite – a medium coverage liquid foundation with up to 15-hour staying power, even in super hot, humid weather. This semi-matte formula gives your skin a flawless finish all day, while remaining fresh and natural-looking. The foundation does not smudge or rub off on clothes.

June Jacobs Neroli Hydrating Mist
To help your foundation or BB Cream last even longer, finish off with a spritz of June Jacobs Neroli Hydrating Mist. This wonder product, with a powerful blend of skin caring antioxidants not only helps neutralise free radicals, and protect your skin from environmental toxins, it works wonderfully as a setting spray, to help your make up last longer, especially in these hot humid temperatures. You can spray it on throughout the day, whenever you need a refreshing pick-me-up – it won’t diminish the wear of your make up. 200ml RRP $55.00.
Urban Beauty United Mattifying Sponge
The main purpose of these mattifying sponges with special micro-oil absorbing properties is to mattify your makeup, and even out skin tone (so they are absolutely perfect for younger makeup users too), however a really useful by-product of the oil absorption and mattifying is that they help your makeup last even longer, by removing excess oil, and ensuring your foundation/BB Cream is applied evenly, and right into your skin. As a bonus, you don’t use as much as you would with finger application, so your foundation/BB Cream lasts longer too! Mattifying Sponge Trio pack RRP $5.00. At this price, keep one for yourself, and give one to your daughter/granddaughter.
