You know how people say it always rains in London? They clearly have not been here too lately. I've been successfully dying of heat every single night for probably a week now. Not to mention the humidity.
The plus side of humidity means that I always feel like my skin is hydrated. The downside is that you have to be careful what you put on your face, because it might just melt away.
This is why I truly keep it to a minimum lately, with nothing more than a moisturiser as a base. With this heat, I cannot deal with any other layer.
But you still gotta look and feel pretty, right? So here's what goes on my face as of late:
First rule is: keep it powdery.
Especially in humidity, you're better off with powder rather than creamy products. So while I love my creamy illuminator, I've gone with the Soap and Glory Solar Powder instead.
And where I used to be the eternal liner gal, the current substitute is the Wet n' Wild Comfort Zone palette. I can either just use one of the dark colours for liner or create a nice tan summery eye.
A immensely surprising mascara favourite is the Origins GinZing mascara. Yes, they make mascara. I for one did not expect that. And least of all did I expect it to be so great! Your lashes feel and light, beautiful and defined. Exactly my kind of mascara!
And now, my favourite new discovery: The KIKO Lip Gloss Pencil in 07 Baby Pink. I'm very likely to pick a pencil in favour of a lipstick nowadays. I'll make a separate post on these pencils because I just love them and for 3,90£ they have an almost surreal price-quality ratio!
