So the heat is back in Melbourne this week, after surviving the long 40 degree days a few weeks ago. As some of you know, I do not like the heat at all. I will sweat so easily when it hits 26+.
But no heat, sweat and shine will stop me from using makeup, so I'll be showing you the makeup and skin care products I use when the heat strikes.
Ecotools Powder Brush || NYC Sunny Bronzer || Rimmel Stay Matte Powder || Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer || Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfecter for Combination to Oily Skin
The Ecotools Powder Brush is what I use to apply both the powders on my face. Though a little heads up, I only use these face products when I'm going out shopping indoors where the air conditioning is blasting. If I'm going out to the city or if I'll be outdoors walking around I will not use any face products at all besides the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer on my eyebags.
If I feel like an extra bit of coverage I will use the Garnier BB Cream focused more on the cheeks, forehead and chin then blended out. But on the days where I like to go more 'bare faced' I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder on my T-zone and the NYC Sunny Bronzer to contour my cheeks.
NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Dark Brown/Brown || Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Pencil || The Body Shop Slanted Brush
No matter what occasion, I will always do my brows. These are my HG brow products that I use everyday. I use The Body Shop Slanted Brush with the NYX Brow powder, though it does fade when the weather hits the 40 range, I like to use the Etude House Brow Pencil to line my brows which will last no matter what.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance || Missha White Eyeliner Pencil || K-Palette WP Liquid Eyeliner || Dollywink Liquid Liner || Hello Kitty Liquid Liner || Maybelline Hyperglossy Liner
|The Dollywink Liquid Liner dried up on me when I was taking all the pictures.|
Milani Eyeshadow Palette in Paint
If I decide to have a pop of colour I like to use the blue or purple eyeshadow from the Milani shadow on my lash line combined with the Too faced Shadow Insurance Primer
Maybelline One By One Mascara || Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Edge Meister
I find that western non-waterproof mascaras last a lot longer on me without smudging compared to waterproof ones. I've been using the Maybelline One by One on the days where I go to work or on days out with friends, although in the review (old and outdated) it does not hold a curl but my secret for making mascaras hold a curl is to only apply it mostly on the ends and by luck it lasts for a good few hours. For the Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Edge Meister it is amazing for the heat and water, no joke you can go swimming with it on and it will not smudge and it also holds a curl brilliantly. But sadly for both the mascaras they dont last on my bottom lashline.
Just Beyond Lip Tint in Red || Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart/Valentine
I just find that lipstains lasts a lot longer on the lips than lipsticks. I also prefer lipstains since I can make a more natural lip colour or build up the colour and make it brighter. A great staple during the summer time.
The Just Beyond liptint is what I use to make my lips just a shade pinker and the Revlon Balm Stain is what I use to create the gradation lip/popsicle lipstain.
Eau Thermale Termal Spring Water || b.liv off with those heads || b.liv spots got shot || Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil || Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen || Hadalabo Gokujyun
The Eau Thermale Termal Spring Water has been a lifesaver of mine whenever it gets hot, I love spraying this on my face, arms and body because of the nice cool feeling and since I dont have aircon or a fan it does make a great temporary cooler. I personally suffer from small breakouts around my nose and forehead which I originally thought was just hormonal breakouts but it was actually because I havent been taking care of preventing breakouts, I've been using the b.liv off with those heads blackheads sebum gel everyday on my nose and forehead and I've actually noticed that I havent gotten a single breakout yet since december onto today which is surprising since I do get a lot of small pimples around my nose a few times a month. But if i do get a pimple I minimize it by using Tea Tree Oil (has been dandy for the past few years) but my last pimple I got actually left a big dark spot below my nose and the b.liv spots got shot has minimized the spot and it is now unnoticeable.
Obviously sunscreen is needed during summer so I like using the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen on my face if im out for too long. As for the Hadalabo Gokujyun I use it was my skin feels dry and not as hydrated.
