We asked makeup artist Avery Allen to share her favorite products for maintaining that summer glow, and we don’t mean the sweaty kind. Here is what she had to say.

Living in the south means facing a few challenges with your morning routine when summer rolls in and the days get hotter and more humid. I know a huge concern for most women is finding makeup that won’t fade (or melt) away after only an hour or so. It needs to feel light and fresh but also have some serious staying power. I have tested so many products to see what really stands up to the heat and humidity, and these are the items I consistently reach for when summer is in full force, for myself as well as my clients!

This is a lighter version of the classic Double Wear foundation and really does stay in place! Be sure to blend it well over moisturizer. Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup
I always reach for this brand when a product really needs to be waterproof because it always delivers, and this eye liner is no exception. It glides on easily and doesn't come off until you want it to! MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Eye Pencil
I love this product because it is a lighter version of a lip stain with a moisturizer so it still looks fresh for summer time, and there are so many color options! Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain
This is a great concealer for breakouts and other spots on the face, and it really follows through on it's description: matte, oil-free, long lasting, and waterproof. You can also mix it with a little moisturizer and use it underneath the eyes. MAKE UP FOR EVER Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup
These are a must in the summer heat! Always absorb excess oil before adding more powder, it instantly takes down shine. Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets
I love this mascara, it really is better than any waterproof mascara! It also comes off easily with warm water, no need for the harsh eye makeup removers. BLINC Blinc Mascara
