It’s time to bring out my summer make up.
When it’s so hot (30’s) and humid I cut down on using make up. I use minimal make up as I can to avoid looking cakey and to avoid crease all over my face.
Let’s face it, when it’s hot and humid 1/2 of our make up melts the minute we leave our house. And I hate the feeling of make up melting. It feels sticky and dirty.
These are the products I have been using since the onset of summer.
L’Oreal Magic Lumi Light Infusion Primer
The face primer I use. I apply this before applying my foundation.
Chanel Vitalumière Aqua
I use the lightest foundation I have and that is Chanel Vitalumière Aqua. I like this ’cause this is water base and very, very light. Medium to light coverage and has spf 15. I use shade 30 Beige. This is very light you can hardly feel that you have foundation on. For me this is the best foundation to use when it is hot & humid.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer & Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
Since I am using a light coverage foundation I need to use a heavy coverage concealer to cover my dark spots and some blemishes. The concealer I like to use is NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Ginger. It’s thick enough to cover any blemishes and dark spots. To brighten my under eyes I use Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer.
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick
For my eye shadow I use Bobbi Brown Long-wear Cream Shadow Stick in Sand Dune. I use eye shadow stick during hot months. Because, first it’s cream and most likely won’t cake when you sweat. Second, it’s easy to apply therefore it saves you time.
Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette and Catrice Long Lasting Eye Pencil Waterproof
After applying the eye shadow stick and since it is very light I emphasize my eyes. I use Catrice Long lasting Eye Pencil Waterproof in 050 Brown Tawn Girl to tight line my upper lash line. And I use the black shade in Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour palette to set my Catrice eyeliner to make it look smokey.
IT Cosmetics Brow Definer and L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper
For my eyebrows I only use eyebrow pencil and I stay away from powder. I use my IT Cosmetics Brow Definer and L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper.
Essence Lash Base and Essence I Like Long Lashes
This is my latest find in Watson’s! I love this combination. I never used to use lash base religiously before. But when I discovered the lash base of Essence and saw the difference I now use it all the time. In fact I went back to Watson’s and bought more. Unluckily they only had 2 pieces left so, I bought their last 2 pieces. I like it because it makes my eye lashes long (I am not bless with eye lashes). Another thing, when removing my mascara at night the lash base helps breaks the mascara better and it makes it easier everytime I clean my face.
I also love Essence ‘I Like Long Lashes Mascara’. I have been using this ever since I discovered this. I like the wand, it’s thin and easier to apply. And it does make my eye lashes longer.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
I use this to warm my face and to contour.
Flormar Terracotta Blush on
I have been crazy with Flormar’s blushes lately. I have been using this shade a lot and sometimes I use this as an eye shadow. During summer time I’m cutting on products to use and cutting time on the whole process of applying make up I love using this since I use it for blush on and highlighter as well.
NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick
For lipstick I am loving NYX Lingerie lipstick in the shade Lace Detail. It’s what they call your lips but better.
So, these are just the products I use during summer when I sweat profusely the entire day. It’s quick and easy and doesn’t require too much work.
And here is my finish face
This is what I wore yesterday when I went to my goldsmith to give him our orders for this week and to follow up some orders that I left behind when I went to Tokyo. It took me an hour and a half to get to the shop because of heavy traffic in South super highway.
