Best Sweat-Proof Setting Powder: Fenty Beauty Invisimatte

Probably one of the most obvious tips for keeping your makeup intact during the summer is to use a setting powder like this one from Fenty Beauty. The blotting powder has a pore-diffusing complex that instantly absorbs shine and gives the complexion a natural, matte finish without any white cast. If you're on the oilier side, we recommend dusting some extra powder on your T-zone. While the product does a great job of keeping skin oils at bay, if you have to touch up throughout the day, you can, without worry about the powder messing up your makeup look. While the setting powder works great on any skin type, it does wonders for us oily skin girls. "I have EXTREMELY oily skin and I love the way this powder makes my skin look. I put it on before I apply my Fenty Pro Filt'r Foundation. Then I set it with this powder. At the end of the day my makeup doesn't lift and separate from my skin," one reviewer said on Sephora.
