10 Essential makeup products to beat the heat

New Orleans brides face high temps and humidity most of the year, but products with high-tech ingredients can guarantee they will look cool and flawless all day. Here’s a round up of the some of the best:


Cargo’s Water Resistant Blush’s silky powder formula has silicone-coated pigments which provide better adhesion to the skin and an amino acid that increases its longwearing and water-resistant properties.



Created and tested by professional and Olympic athletes Sweat Cosmetics Mineral Bronzer SPF 25+ is designed to be workout and sweat-proof.

The collagen-fueled formula in Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is applied with a specially shaped brush and not only creates unbelievable length and volume but its film-forming polymer guarantees all day smudge-proof wear.

The polymer technology in Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion fills in any imperfections and provides 24-hour crease-free shadow and more vibrant color.

Chanel Illusion de Ombre Long wear Luminous Eye Shadow is a gel-based eye “mousse” that glides on easily to create a budge-proof ,pretty shimmer.

A brush-on gel that shapes and shades with a non-greasy formula, MAC Pro Long-wear Waterproof Brow Set, is not only resistant to sweat, but it is flake- and clump-proof as well.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer is a silicone-based primer that creates a flawless canvas and strong foothold for foundation.

Make Up Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil is an extra long-lasting waterproof eye pencil developed 25 years ago for the French Synchronized Swimming Team. It does not smudge even underwater.

Surfer, Kelia Moniz, alpine-ski racer Julia Mancuso and BASE jumper Roberta Mancino put Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF15 through the paces and prove their staying power.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is the go-to for Natalie Coughlin, 12-time Olympic swimming medalist who hopped into the pool to prove this waterproof line is for real.
