How to melt-proof your look for the beach and outdoors

Summer in Hong Kong means it’s time to go for long-wearing products that offer sun-protection, water-resistance and stays on, even in the warmest of days. With temperatures starting to soar, the last thing you want is to be worried about is your foundation melting away or mascara running down your face without you noticing!  Sweat- and water-proof your look with our editors’ top beauty picks:

Face protection

MTM Solar Shield Plus’ waterproof formulation offers UVA and UVB protection for up to 16 hours. Its light and non-greasy texture makes it a great double for a primer. Available at MTM Skincare

Foundation

Tom Ford’s Beauty Waterproof Foundation offers full coverage and doubles as an effective concealer for dark circles and blemishes. The formula is breathable, lightweight, and gives the skin a radiant, even finish. Available at Lane Crawford

Mascara

Diorshow Pump N’ Volume Waterproof Mascara is a hybrid of its best-selling, volumizing formula with long-staying, no-run wear. Use zigzag movements with the applicator to coat lashes and achieve extreme, waterproof volume. Available at Dior Beauty

Eyeliner

On one side, Tarte Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner features a long-wearing liquid precision liner for a sleek line or dramatic wing, and on the other, a twist-up pencil allows tracing of the lash line and inner rim with a velvet finish. Use both sides for the perfect waterproof smokey eye. Available at Sephora

Lipstick

Make your lips pop with YSL Beauté’s latest range of Tatouage Couture Matte Stains. The long-lasting, high coverage lip stain comes in a creamy new formula that’s intensely pigmented but isn’t drying. Available at YSL Beauté

Finishing spray

Make Up For Ever’s Light Velvet Air Mist promises to keep made up skin mattified, especially in the warmest and most humid conditions. This hard-working shine-control spray gives skin a “mewy” or matte and dewy finish that is long-lasting without a chalky or powdery effect, while still keeping skin hydrated. Available at Make Up For Ever

Body and hair sun protection

A refreshing UV filter mist that is easy to apply and is quickly absorbed into the skin, Clarins Suncare Body Mist SPF50 is infused with plant-based extracts including Senna, baobab, olive and aloe vera that prevent visible signs of photo-ageing. The mist can be sprayed over the hair and body for a moisturising layer of protection. Available at Clarins
