The Best Budge-Proof Makeup for the Longest Day of the Year

In Scandinavian countries, the longest day of the year, more commonly known as Midsummer, is celebrated with revelries that endure into the night—with the sun setting for only a few hours in most countries (and not at all, for those vacationing in Swedish Lapland). But whether you plan on partaking in the solstice festivities when they kick off this coming Friday, or are simply anticipating a marathon afternoon at the office followed by drinks and an early bedtime, you’ll need makeup that won’t pull a disappearing act while the sun is still out. To that end, we asked a few industry pros what they pull from their kits when boldfaced clients need their look to go the distance.

Because laying down a base that remains impervious to sun, wind and humidity is paramount, Tina Turnbow layers Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Cream Foundation (“it provides a satin finish and buildable coverage that stays in place”) over Laura Mercier Radiance Primer when working with actresses like Keri Russell. For steamy conditions that require a bit more insurance, Lupita Nyong’o’s longtime go-to man, Nick Barose, spritzes Kate Somerville Make Up Setting Spray SPF 50 “on top of finished makeup to keep it fresh and polished.”

Achieving a sultry eye that rivals the weather but resists a mid-day meltdown is possible, says It-girl favorite Vincent Oquendo. For this purpose, he reaches for Armani Eye Tints because they offer the benefit of long-wear color along with the kind of “depth and richness you tend to lose with these formulas” and Le Volume de Chanel Waterproof Mascara, which takes but a few coats to build “feathery and voluminous lashes,” unlike similarly durable options.

As for providing lips with a pop of color that lingers longer, Barose says Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid manages to “stay fresh in the heat without being too thick or drying.” Here, nine makeup artist-approved staples that promise to work overtime.
