We shot this look on a 100-degree day. Yes, that’s right it was 100-degrees out which I was completely dreading! Before the shoot, I went ahead and did a lot of research online of what beauty products to buy that would withstand record-breaking temps. Below is a list of my top 6 beauty product must-haves when you’re going through a heatwave.
Before applying foundation, I spray my face with NYX Professional Makeup First Base Primer Spray. What’s nice about this spray is it’s free of phthalate, parabens, sulfates, dyes and aluminum. This spray will help create a smooth canvas for applying your foundation.
I used L’Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation while I shot this look in 100-degree weather and it held up really well which inspired me to write this post. This comes in 22 shades, I used Classic Ivory. It was lightweight and creamy. It dries quickly and feels smooth on the skin (non-sticky finish). This is perfect for normal to oily skin.
Another foundation I highly recommend is Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation. It is half the price of L’Oreal Infallible. This comes in 40 shades and I used Classic Ivory. I actually think I like this shade a little bit better. It’s more ivory while the L’Oreal Infallible version has a pink tint to it. This too is lightweight, creamy and has a smooth non-sticky finish.
After applying my makeup, I spray my face with NYX Professional Makeup Setting Spray. This spray will help your makeup stay put all day long!
I promise you won’t need any touch ups. I am not the type of girl to carry around a makeup bag. When I am out and about I only carry the basics like my wallet, car keys, cell phone and chapstick/lipstick. However, if you do happen to get a little dewy or oily in your t-zone, I highly recommend these Oil Absorbing Sheets. I take these everywhere with me and they work perfectly by soaking up any oils without removing your makeup!
A side note, my favorite deodorant is Salt Of The Earth. It’s made from Potassium Alum (a natural mineral salt) and is aluminum-free. It lasts longer than any other deodorant I have used and out performs most natural deodorant brands. I apply it right after the shower while my skin is still wet. You won’t have to worry about this deodorant melting off on to your clothes either because it is only salt.
