Hi girlies! In case you didn’t know, I’m on holiday in Brazil and it’s summer here at the moment, which means temperatures of 30+ degrees celsius all day, every day. I know that may sound amazing, but when it comes to keeping the complexion looking flawless, it’s a bit more challenging in hot weather conditions. When it’s hot outside, our makeup tends to melt as we sweat throughout the day, and if we’re not careful, we can end up looking all patchy or even staining our clothes. So I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been doing to help everything stay put all day.
To apply it, I spread out dots of foundation all over my face and buff it in with my MAC 187. I’m comfortable enough with one layer of foundation on my skin, because it hides any marks or discolouration whilst still leaving my face natural-looking. Also, during the summer, I think more is less when it comes to foundation as I definitely want to show-off a bit of my tan :)
After the foundation, an essential step when in humid weather conditions is to use a powder to set the foundation and to help with the ‘melting’ feeling. With a large fluffy brush I apply a thin layer of MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural to my face and neck and that is pretty much it for the face. If there’s still anything that needs coverage, I use a bit of concealer to touch up.
This foundation routine has been working really well for the past week in the hot Brazilian weather. Of course, if I’m going to the beach or pool, I don’t wear any foundation, as it will just wash off, but generally, during the day and on evenings out, this works perfectly!
