Tips for amazing makeup even when it’s hot and super humid.
1- Prep and Prime:
After you’ve moisturized your skin, wait for at least three minutes for it to set and then follow with a mattifying primer.

2- Waterproof Your Coverage:
If you want your foundation to truly last all day in our humid weather, opt for a waterproof foundation.

3- Set Translucently:
A colored setting powder in a hot humid climate might cause your makeup to oxidize, so instead go for a transparent setting powder to keep everything in place.

4- Layer Lightly:
To ensure your bronzer lasts longer, consider applying a cream bronzer with a powder bronzer on top. However, you should make sure to apply light layers and avoid the melting-cake-face effect.

5- Spray and Go:
Setting all your makeup with a good setting spray is crucial for beating humidity. Urban Decay’s all-nighter setting spray features patented temperature control technology, where it can lower the temperature of your makeup to keep it all in place.
