If you’ve been struggling with high summer temperatures, one problem — for those who wear it — may be sweating your makeup off the second you leave the house.

“It’s a lot about prepping the skin before applying makeup,” said Marj Maroket, a 28-year-old beauty content creator living in the Philippines. Given the year-round tropical climate, Maroket’s a pro when it comes to makeup that can withstand heat and humidity.
