do it really light, easy on the eyes (it’ll run first if it’s really hot) and consider using a makeup setting spray!

Use very little or no foundation – use a powder that gives you some coverage instead. Rather than focusing on flawless looking skin, try to accentuate your eyes and use a bit of blush/bronzer (i.e., you’re not going to look airbrushed and perfect, so try glowing and radiant instead). Possibly waterproof eye makeup (a good idea anyway if you’re prone to cry at weddings). And carry a fan. They help a lot more than you would think.

MAC (and I am sure many other companies) have great “primers” that are specifically intended for high heat/humidity situations. I’ve only worn it once when I was in a wedding party and it seemed to work. I’m not really a sweater though.

Usually in the hot humid summer’s I just use an SPF/Moisturizer with some of my usual foundation mixed into it. With a powder ontop. A good powder should give you some control from heat/humidity. Waterproof mascara will standup in humidity too.

I usually only use sunscreen and power, and water-proof mascara.
