Ok so at the time of writing it is absolutely boiling in the UK – unbearably so (hey, its tradition to moan about the heat when it’s here and complain when it isn’t) so my make up routine is really at a near standstill. It feels uncomfortable and melts off too quickly although – I still like to look polished.
So here are the quick products I have been using (along side some cheaper dupes):
Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue – I have since finished this so I am using up my Mii BB Cream which has a similar texture and is more like a moisturiser than a foundation but still offers good coverage.
NARS Radiant Cream Concealer – another favourite of mine.
Good coverage but not heavy. Kiko is supposed to also have a good range of cheap but effective concealers too.
Hourglass palette (now discontinued) – with a blush and bronze in one place. As you can see, nearly all gone! Despite the heat I prefer cream over powder. ELF do a good selection of cheap cream blushers.
Paul & Joe Mascara – Waterproof for this hot sweaty weather. This needs to be binned soon so I can get a brand new one! I have been Holika Holika Fixing Cara which holds curl but is 1/4 of the price.
Glossier Boy Brow – perfect stuff, lasts and adds colour and definition. For a cheaper option try NYX Brow Mascara.
Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick – shade is Lolia I. Perfect nude shade that stays put. For a cheaper alternative to the shade and texture, try NYX lip lingerie which has lost of wearable nudes.
Finished look (I added some cream shadow at the end but I wouldn’t usually wear this every day):
What make up are you wearing in this heat?
