The rest of the heat post…

maxi dress

MAC Lady Danger
Ray Ban mirror aviators
Ray Ban aviators
Floor length dress

Dress: H&M (similar maxi dress in grey or try this, this or this option) Shades: Ray Ban – mine are here.  Necklace: Vintage (how sick is this one online??. Lipstick: MAC Lady Danger

Another floor sweeper that removes the need to think of what top to wear with what bottoms. More light weights I didn’t bring on this trip are here and here.

I was thinking of the winter long dresses I’ll be switching to instead though in a few days.  Talk about a split screen change. 

MAC Lady Danger

Sunglasses:  Ray Ban

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!
