It’s been hot, really hot the last couple of days. As it has been a while since I did a makeup post, I thought I’d show you the products I actually bother to use in this heat!
Well I do my skincare just as usual (click here for my summer skin care routine) but instead of my moisturizer I use sun cream (Sun Factor 50). I’m a pale gal so better to stay white than look red like a lobster. You know I do enjoy occasional days without makeup. However when going out to meet friends etc. I like to add at least some makeup. The following are the makeup essentials I like to use when the temperature is rising. So here are my 5 go-to’s.
Just by adding a brow product I already feel a little bit more put together. My fave brow product is from Sephora. It’s their Gel Sourcils Structurant Brow Builder. And the most important thing is – it’s waterproof! Nobody wants their makeup melting all over their face! It’s so easy to put on and stays there all day. Even when going for a swim. I raved all about this product over here.
For years I’ve been using my trusty Rimmel Mascara with Argan Oil. In this heat I’m just reaching for the water proof version of it. It’s great and can stand the hot weather even a big water fight can’t have anything against it -it’s the Rimmel Wonder’full Mascara with Argan Oil and like I said it’s waterproof.
I only got the Hoola Bronzer from benefits this spring. But I love it and it’s just perfect for summer. As I don’t wanna put my cream contour on my face I use the Hoola Bronzer to give my face some dimension and just to give it at least some colour. I know this isn’t the cheapest bronzer but you only need a tiny bit and I can see it lasting me for years.
Now the powder I don’t always use it but if it’s for an evening out or when I know I’m not going into the water. Then I will use it. It’s my all time favourite powder from One Heck of a Blot powder from Soap & Glory. It’s translucent and I like to apply it with a big fluffy powder brush.
Now this is the makeup essential you can always count on. Wack on some lipstick and you instantly look put together! I love wearing lipstick wether it’s this gorgeous cherry red from Tom Ford or a nude one (Velvet Teddy from Mac). I feel like the lips are the only thing that holds up in this heat.
So these are my makeup essentials for the hot weather. Baring in mind I hardly ever use any foundation anyways this are just some light changes I make to my makeup routine.
How do you keep up your appearance in this heat wave?
