No matter how good your makeup technique is or how long-lasting your color claims to stay, the summer’s sweltering heat can do a number on anyone’s look by midday. These six tested-under-even-the-most-humid-of-days products pick up the slack by giving some extra life to your skin and keeping the dreaded “melted-makeup” look at bay.

AmorePacific Sun Protection Mist SPF 30+

This incredibly lightweight spray is so legitimately invisible that it would be a top choice for giving skin that hydrated, glowy look even without the broad-spectrum SPF 30-plus factor. The fact that it has it is a mega-bonus, as it makes reapplying your SPF over makeup a no-brainer. $75, us.amorepacific.com

CARGO Swimmables Bronzer

With skin-healthy amino acids and the most universally spot-on sun-kissed shade, this stay-put bronzer stands up to pretty much everything until it meets a makeup remover. $29, ulta.com

3 / 6

Kate Somerville Prime Protection

Like insurance for your makeup, this silky-smooth primer makes skin look instantly better and anything you put over it pretty much budge-proof. Plus, it has potent anti-agers like peptides to treat your skin and SPF 15 to protect it. $48, katesomerville.com

Boscia Clear Complexion Blotting Linens

Fight acne at your desk without disrupting your makeup with these blemish-busting blotting papers. Not only do they reduce shine, but they also neutralize bacteria and treat skin to some salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores and gently exfoliate. $10, sephora.com

5 / 6

L’Occitane Peony Sublime Perfecting Mist

This pretty pink bottle is a powerhouse hydration magnet. Spritz it on before makeup to give skin some moisture or during the day to make everything look fresher. $24, usa.loccitane.com

6 / 6

Clé de Peau Beauté Luminizing Face Powder

Even if you aren’t so deft with applying highlighter (or nailing down the whole contouring craze), this radiance-inducer makes the task ever-so-simple. You just need a few swipes on your nose and cheekbones to give a very believable glow that does double-duty at soaking up midday oily spots. $95, cledepeaubeaute.com
