These Sweat Proof Concealers Are Summer Essentials

There's nothing like a good concealer to brighten up your face, and the best ones blend seamlessly into your skin and don't make it look like you're wearing a ton of makeup. But during the summer, I rely on my concealer to stay put all day, and it's a pretty big task. Between sun, sweat, and my watery, allergy-prone eyes making makeup melt off my face, my concealer has a pretty tough job. Luckily, these ten sweat-proof concealers are perfect for summer and will keep your face looking fresh even when it's 90 degrees.

When you're looking for a sweat-proof concealer, it's best to pick a long-wearing formula that's also waterproof. If you're prone to under-eye bags but have great skin, stick to a formula that's specially made for that. If you're looking for spot coverage, a concealer stick could be your best bet. There are a ton of products to choose from, but you'll definitely find one on this list that works for you.

After you pick one? Stick your concealer in the fridge — it'll help give you some extra depuffing qualities. Another tip: Always pat it on gently (I use my ring fingers to do this).

10. Glossier

This concealer is not technically waterproof, however, it goes on super smooth and absorbs into your skin instead of leaving a cakey finish. It's super nourishing and elastic, so it moves with your skin instead of just sitting on top of it. Basically, it couldn't be more perfect for summer and heat.
