We are continuing on with the second half of our series on products to keep your look fresh and your makeup on your face in the Orlando heat and humidity. Be sure to check out Part 1 of this series for Primers and Creams that work great for me at the Most Magical Place on Earth.
First things first, I do want to mention that I have oily/combination skin but I do not wear full-coverage products. I think that it is really important to let your skin breathe, especially in humidity so I prefer lighter coverage products for myself. The only exception would be concealers for me. Let’s jump right in with the best powder options in my opinion.
Powder is a great option for humid climates and these three are my go-to products. All three serve a different purpose but are products that I don’t travel to Orlando or other humid climates without.
Bare Minerals Original Loose Powder Foundation – $31.00 – Bareminerals.com
This is my holy grail powder. I use this product either over top of my BB Cream or cream product or as a stand alone product to beat the heat and create a more mattifying look. This is the most full coverage product that I use. It is such a holy grail for me for when I want a little more coverage or just need to mattify my face bit. It covers well without caking on the skin and it stays in place. A little bit of this powder goes long way as well but if you prefer a more full coverage look, you can easily build this up without caking. I also love the flawless finish this provides me and the evening of skin tone.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation – $44.38 – Amazon.com
This product is a bit more full coverage and is honestly the most full coverage product that I own. Because of that, I use very little when I use it, but the great thing about this is that it has amazing staying power, it is incredibly long lasting and it gives you a true airbrushed looked that smooths imperfections and provides a flawless finish.
IT Cosmeticsc Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder Illumination SPF 50+ – $54.00 – Amazon.com
The great thing about this product is the SPF. The issue with using a product that doesn’t have an SPF is that you have to put that on under your product which can and does cause your makeup to look greasy and melt as the day wears on. With this, you are covering both with one product and it is less prone to melting.
Too Faced Sweetie Pie Bronzer – $30.00 – Toofaced.com
One of my holy grail bronzers regardless of the climate. I am a bronzer girl; because I spray tan year round, I wear deep bronzers all year but heavier in the summer. I also prefer a bronzer with a shimmer over a matte bronzer, my personal preference. This bronzer gives a great bronze shimmer mixed with a fantastic pinky hue. It is not heavy but goes on natural and isn’t too much. Also, I love the scent of the peach products so another plus for me.
Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer – $8.69 – Amazon.com
If you are looking for a great bronzer at a reasonable price, you can’t go wrong with Physicians Formula. This is a top rated bronzer that many, including me, compare to more higher end products. It’s a great addition to give you a deeper color and a bit of a glow.
Too Faced Sweethearts Blush in Peach Beach – $30.00 – TooFaced.com
This has been a favorite of mine for years. And yes, I use it as a bronzer. I know, this is a blush but hold on, trust me for a minute. This particular shade if you have medium to tan skin tones work unbelievably well as a bronzer. It gives an incredible shimmer and glow to the skin it wears well and I highly recommend it as both a blush and a bronzer.
Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzing Powder – $25.00 – Amazon.com
This product is a holy grail for a number of people. I really enjoy this product but as I said, I’m a shimmer girl, so I prefer this as a contour but if you prefer a more matte bronzer, this is for you. It works great in the humidity and gives a nice bronze to the skin without caking or looking fake.
Marc Jacobs Accomplice Concealer – $32.00 – Marcjacobsbeauty.com
I have talked about this product before and I still love it. I have now taken it to Disney World twice and on the second trip, I wore it on a day that it poured all day long and when we got back to the resort my concealer was still in place.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12 hour Concealer – $24.21 – Amazon.com
This concealer, especially because it is waterproof has incredible staying power. It’s also a great formula. My only complaint is that once in a while it gets cakey on my skin but I have not heard that from many others so I wanted to be sure to include it because it could just be how it sits on my skin and as I’ve mentioned, it is important to remember that each product reacts differently to various skin tones.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer – $6.90 – Amazon.com
This is my pick for a drugstore option! I love this option. I used to have it in my arsenal at all times. It is absolutely a dupe for several more higher end products. My only knock against this product is that Maybelline is not cruelty free so I can’t put my full weight behind it.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer – $27.00 – Amazon.com
My holy grail. I know, it’s everyone’s holy grail. So, what does that say about it! That it is awesome. This products wears all day without fading, caking or running. The formula is incredible and it conceals with ease. I love this in humid and dry climates, an absolute must have.
Finishing Spray or Powder:
Wet N Wild Photo Focus Matte Finish Finishing Spray – $3.19 – Amazon.com
Wet N Wild is such a great option for a drugstore brand that has amazing products. This finishing spray is one of my favorites and such a great option for the price. I definitely recommend a matte spray in humid climates to combat the sweat and the drowned rat look you can acquire on those really hot, humid WDW days.
Too Faced Peach Perfect Powder – $33.00 – Toofaced.com
Y’all know that I love me some Too Faced, especially their peach collection. If you are using a liquid product, I highly recommend this product. If you are using a powder, I don’t recommend pairing that with this. If you want to set your concealer you can also use this and it works really well. A little goes a long way on this and this helps to mattify your look and set your liquids for a long day in the parks.
Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray – $33.00 – Sephora.com
You know I couldn’t do a piece on setting sprays and not include Urban Decay All Nighter. This is most people’s go to spray. People even claim they can use this, sleep in it and wake up with fresh makeup because of this spray. I have never tried that but I have worn this for a long, rainy day in Hollywood Studios and my makeup does stay in place.
NYX Professional Makeup Matte Finish Setting Spray – $5.99 – Amazon.com
Another drugstore must have. I love having different products in my case to pull out depending on my mood and the other products that I have selected. I love this spray pairs with L’oreal Lumi Glotion. This spray gives high end results without the high end price. It holds up in the heat, the humidity and the long days of Disney and keeps your look fresh!
That’s it for this post! There you have it! All of my must have’s my go-to’s to beat that heat and keep your look fresh in that Disney World heat and humidity.
Thank you for stopping by and for the love of the mouse, never forget, it all started with a mouse.
