When that late summer heat wave hits, it's almost impossible to keep your hair and makeup looking fresh. Heck, even if you're indoors and out of the sun, sweat and excess oil can still present an issue when it comes to keeping your foundation in place.

Luckily, many brands know just how real the struggle is — and, accordingly, have created water-resistant foundations that can totally withstand the sweltering heat. We've scoured the web, read reviews, and even tried many foundations on our own to find some of the best long-wearing foundations that'll stay on, no matter what.
