The 8 Best Water-proof, Heat-resistant, Oil-reducing Beauty Products for Summer

The top 10 beauty picks for summerThe top 10 beauty picks for summerThe warm summer months can mean many different things for your beauty routine. Maybe you become more of a makeup minimalist, looking for lighter formulas with better protection. Maybe your oil-prone skin goes into crisis mode, and you need better ways to manage the shine. Or maybe you take more adventurous leaps with brighter colors and bronzer tones.

I recently took a trip to Sephora, where I realized that I definitely give myself more freedom to splurge on special products that are made to withstand the summer heat, hold up in water and keep my skin from looking too oily.

Check out this list of the 8 best water-proof, heat-resistant, skin-mattifying products to keep you looking and feeling fresh this summer:

Hello Flawless Liquid FoundationHello Flawless Liquid Foundation2. Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation SPF 25, $34
I'm obsessed with this new sun-protecting oil-free liquid foundation. It provides medium coverage in a super lightweight formula, and its light-diffusing properties instantly brightens your complexion. It also includes anti-aging protectants like vitamin C, vitamin E, and a cellular-boosting Oxygen Wow Hydrating Complex. I especially love the wide range of shades that Benefit offers.

Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing SystemClarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System3. Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System, $119
If you've been debating whether to invest in a Clarisonic skin cleansing system, summer is the right time - considering all of the sunscreen and extra oil that might be collecting on your skin. This travel size costs less than the full-size version, yet it still has the professional quality that cleans skin 6x better than traditional cleansers.

Too Faced Matte Bronzing PowderToo Faced Matte Bronzing Powder4. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder with Real Cocoa, $29

If you're looking for bronzer, I have officially found my absolute favorite. Too Faced combines real cocoa powder with their signature bronzing pigments, creating a unique matte bronzer that neutralizes reds and enhances all skin tones. This Too Faced bronzer not only smells delicious, but it doesn't have the shimmer and sparkle that so many bronzers have. It just gives a healthy-looking glow minus the tween sparkles.
