It is hot here – the polar opposite to freezing New York – not looking forward to that return.
Make up wise, I can’t wear much of it above 80 degrees. The only thing on my face (if anything) is a bright lipstick – everything else slides off! Glossy mags talk a lot about switching to tinted moisturizers – as if! The bloody thing would disappear within 30 minutes of me
perspiring sweating bullets. Does anyone use them anyway? do they help anything when it’s reeeally hot??
I brought a few lipsticks with me but the ones I’ve been using the most are MAC Lady Danger (a matte orange shown above that looks even brighter as I get darker) and Make Up Forever #36 (a rich purple fuschia) – found it here and I think I love it more than Show Orchid (from this post). Huge thanks to the assistant at Sephora who recommended it!
If there is holy grail make up that works in blistering heat I wish I knew what it was. If not, bare face it is with a slap of lipstick!
