Sweating like Keith on the banks of the Mississippi…
There was a moment last week on magazine street in new Orleans when El Hub as well as I were sitting at a booth in a cafe while sipping iced strawberry lemonades to great down when I officially realized just exactly how unfathomably hot as well as muggy summer new Orleans is/was. I was leaning back in the booth as well as spacing out, just staring blankly at a ceiling fan as well as the artwork on the walls when I leaned forward, as well as I felt the back of my sticky, sweat-soaked gown actually peel away from the vinyl.
Yup, ’twas quite gross.
I believe I sweated with that entire trip, however I likewise got some additional sweaty hands-on experience getting my makeup to stay put in hot, damp weather.
Gotta like silver linings.
I could’ve just gone barefaced as well as not used anything, however where’s the fun in that?

Things to assist your warpaint last with hot and/or damp weather…
Blotting papers (which we’ll talk about in a minute)
For me, these are all hot-weather non-negotiables.
In cooler climates, when it comes to makeup improv as well as leaving things out of my routine, I usually have a more go-with-the-flow attitude, however when dealt with with extreme warm as well as humidity, I believe it truly assists to utilize these products if you don’t want your makeup to slide off your face.
Make Up For ever step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing primer as well as NARS pro Prime Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base
Starting with primer, I utilized two last week (the comprise For ever step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing primer as well as NARS pro Prime Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base pictured above), one for my deal with makeup as well as one for my eyes.
Really, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of different type of primers out there, however I look for ones that do these two things to truly assist my makeup last longer: 1) smooth out the surface of my skin, as well as 2) latch onto whatever I occur to layer on top of them, be it BB cream, foundation, concealer, powder, what have you.
To apply a deal with primer, I blot my skin very first with a tissue to eliminate any type of excess oil or moisture. then I massage the primer on my oiliest areas — my cheeks, nose, chin as well as forehead.
After that, I do the exact same thing with eye primer, blotting first, then applying it to my lids, into my brows (to assist my brow products last longer), as well as under my eyes (to keep my concealer in place).
I provide them about five minutes to absorb, then blot one more time with a tissue before applying my foundation, concealer, etc., on top.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish natural in medium Tan as well as a Chanel travel-size deal with brush
Next up, powder. I discover that if I’m going to wear any type of type of creamy product on my deal with (like a BB cream or foundation) when it’s ridiculously hot and/or humid, I truly requirement to set it with a powder; otherwise, stated product will slide right off my face.
My powder du jour is MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, as well as I brought shade medium Tan with me on this trip.
I dust a extremely light layer around my deal with with a deal with brush, which I prefer to a powder puff or sponge for this, since they tend to apply a bit more powder than I like.
Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting Spray, full-size as well as travel-size
After applying powder as well as the rest of my makeup, I surface with a setting spray, misting everything over my deal with to set whatever in place.
There are likewise many setting sprays out there, however my go-to for hot weather condition is metropolitan Decay’s All Nighter.
Blotting papers for touching up
So exactly how do you keep that makeup looking fresh throughout those hellaciously hot days? By touching up utilizing a travel-sized setting spray, blotting papers an powder.
When it’s time for a touchup I…
Blot my skin with blotting papers to cut down on radiate as well as oil
Dust a bit more powder on my skin with a powder brush
Mist my entire deal with with setting spray to set the powder in place
I complied with this process a few times throughout each of the days I was in NOLA, as well as it assisted my makeup last from dawn till dusk. then when we went out at night (after I touched up one more time), all I had to do was add a bit additional liner as well as a bright lip.
And just for kicks…
