I bet when this post goes up though, it will be peeing it down like nobody’s business…
There are certain ways you can avoid literal beauty meltdowns, conveniently today I have some tips for you!
1. POWDER IS YOUR BEST FRIEND –
On those days where it is hotter inside than outside, a good MATTE powder will help you out. Dust a light powder over your T zone and down the sides of your mouth, using a sparse make up brush. Don’t use a dense bristled make up brush or you will end up with too much product on the brush. Rimmel does a great translucent powder which is a bargain too!
2. USE AN EYESHADOW PRIMER –
This step will help your eyeshadow stay on your face! It will also help if you have oily eyelids (yuck, but it does happen). A primer will help colours pop, especially if you use a very pale coloured paint pot or primer. This helps in particular when you are slowly building up eyeshadow layers, for example using your transition colour first, then your crease colour, centre of the eyelid colour and then inner corner highlight! Oh and brow highlight if you are going all out :). I love the MAC Painterly Paint Pot, which lass forever.
3. WATERPROOF EYEBROWS –
Something that ASTOUNDED me when I received the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in my online Beauty Bay order (and blew my mind) was that it is waterproof. Waterproof eyebrows of all things, lol. Sounds ridiculous, but it actually is waterproof. Those days when it’s boiling at work and you are rubbing your face/head/eyes you don’t want your eyebrows to be smeared half way down your face!
4. A MAKE UP SETTING SPRAY –
Nowadays you can actually get make up setting sprays that are MATTE! How amazing, so you can put all the prep work in using the tips above to make sure you don’t end up a sweaty betty and then you also have the added assurance of having a matte setting spray! It will help keep everything in place even if it is boiling hot and you feel like your face is going to melt off your skeleton. This NYX one looks like a contender!
5. KEEP YOUR HAIR OFF YOUR FACE –
This one is more of a skincare tip, but keeping your hair off your face will mean that you have to touch your face less. Touching your face lots in the heat isn’t good for your skin (especially if you are working in an office or germy environment) as it will transfer bacteria! This just means more spots to cover up with concealer…ew. For this easiest way is to plait your fringe across the top of your head, use a bobby pin to clip your hair back, or an Alice band to keep it off your face!
I hope you guys have enjoyed hearing my tips! Do you have any of your own?
Thanks for reading :),
