5 Products For A Guaranteed Sweat-Proof Graduation Look

5 Products For A Guaranteed Sweat-Proof Graduation Look

One's graduation from college is a milestone. It represents the end of around 14 years of studying (this was before K-12). Thus, any girl wants to look her best on that day.

This is easier said than done. What about the heat? What about the humidity?

Note: Not all schools have had their graduation ceremonies. Ateneo de Manila University and Miriam College have theirs scheduled on the same day (May 27) while the University of the Philippines and University of Sto. Tomas will hold their commencement exercises in June.

So how does one stay and look fresh in this heat, especially if one's graduation is held in an open venue without air conditioning? Well, you look for makeup that won't quit. Here are some that haven't failed us yet.


Benefit Porefessional PRO Balm 

You can use this after your skin care products and before foundation. If you have a small tube of this, you can put it in your clutch or pocket. The nice thing about Porefessional is that you can use it over makeup to retouch. No need for a mirror.

MAC Prolongwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

This foundation in a tube comes in over 20 colors. Many face bases promise to be long wearing but this one really is. "Though it isn't 'waterproof,' it certainly holds up through rain, humidity and sweat," said beautypedia.com. Oh, it may be long wearing but MAC Prolongwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation is very easy to blend. Use a flat top foundation brush to apply and press with a Beautyblender.

Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

This is the perfect product to finish your makeup so it doesn't cake. Apply liberally with a Kabuki brush as the powder is translucent.

K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyebrow 24H

This is my proven-and-tested go-to product especially during summer. There's a reason why K-Palette is a cult favorite. This is sweat-proof to a certain extent (if you've been sweating thoroughly for an hour, this isn't gonna hold up). But if you're a normal person, this should last up to eight hours.

Make Up For Ever Fix & Mist Setting Spray

This is worth every centavo you're paying for it because it really locks in makeup for several hours. This spray is great for those who are extra sweaty or situations that require you to be outdoors.
