The calm before the storm is marked by unbearable humidity. Your rainy day outfits may be well-prepared, but is your makeup equally weather-proof? In this wet heat, only budge-proof beauty will do.

To make sure your face doesn’t melt off, we’d recommend 5 Korean makeup products. Designed to withstand inclement weather, these long-lasting staples will see you through every storm—and the hot, sticky lull that inevitably follows.

1. Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB, P795 Famous for its lightweight consistency, this jelly-like BB cream is loved by everyone from Michelle Phan to BeautyMNL regulars. The weightlessness is due to an 80% mint water formula, which sinks in quickly and stays right where you apply it. Perfect for oily complexions, this BB feels like a second skin and won’t grease up even on the balmiest days.

Its blendable formula eliminates dark circles, hides blemishes, and smoothens out skin. Because it never settles or cakes, its velvety, radiant finish is virtually undetectable. Did we mention the SPF 30 pumped into every tube? It may be a Seoul creation, but this comfy concealer was made for the tropics.
