Being a life guard I have to face constant inner turmoil deciding whether to wear makeup or not; on one hand I don’t want to clog my skin up even more when I will already be really hot but at the same time I don’t want to scare the public away with my face. To overcome this dilemma I have found a nice middle ground; a makeup look which allows me not to look like the evil witch from Snow White but at the same time not leading too loads of break outs and since the weather here in the UK is copying the weather that is in Africa I thought I would share this look to give you guys an idea of what to wear. Firstly I never wear foundation as its too heavy and will just melt off, so instead I wear a BB cream; I am using L’Oreal Paris Code Lumiere BB cream in Fair and it gives the coverage I need but doesn’t clog my pores up too much. I then fill in the really bad bits (bags, spots and redness) with my trust worthy Collection 200 Lasting Perfection Concealer but if I am having a good skin day I tend just to leave it after the BB cream so my skin can breathe. If I am feeling a little fruity I then use a little contour to give my face a little more shape because hey, you never know who you’ll see! I am using Bourjois Paris Maxi Delight Bronzer at the moment and so far I am really impressed with it. Eye wise I tend not to wear much as I don’t really want panda eyes so I just stick to a little mascara; here I am using my Soap & Glory Thick and Fast mascara which stays put even after sitting on poolside for over an hour. I also use my eye lash curlers just to give my lashes a little more lift so I don’t look too tired. Finally I fill my brows in with my Rimmel London Brow Pencil as without it I don’t have any brows then just put a little moisture on my lips as they can dry out terrible in the heat; I am using Nivea’s Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose which I absolutely love! While in the heat you must also remember to stay hydrated throughout as not only will it leave you dehydrated but the heat does nothing for your skin so by drinking lots of water it replaces any lost.
What makeup do you wear in the heat? Remember to be safe kittens!
