Your assistance please!

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 5 - 2010

I have a reader who is currently enjoying the sunnier climes of Australia and needs some foundation help!

She’s finding that her base is simply not lasting the duration in the warmer weather.

Do you have any recommendations or hot weather makeup tips you’re happy to share?  I need your expertise!

    Two words..Dior Airflash. Doesn’t move, melt or separate. I wore it last summer in the Las Vegas 110 degree heat. MAC studio mist if you can get your hands on it is a good alternative also.

    i would have to say mineral makeup. it really feels like you’re not wearing anything and most have SPF already in them.

    coverage is pretty good, certainly not as good as liquid foundation, but good nonetheless. if ever she needs to reapply, for the most part it doesn’t look cakey.

    i use bare minerals on top of clinique city block SPF 30 when i was in florida 2 years ago. it was hot, it was humid, i was sweaty, but my foundation stayed put. of course, the water rides took care of that afterwards :p

  3. Mineral makeup may be an option for your reader if she wants sheer coverage and has normal skin that doesn’t get oily throughout the day (which is unlikely given her problem) I mention that simply because powder foundations of any type (mineral or no) are more likely to oxidize when oil in the skin mixes with them- which means they’re likely to turn orange throughout the day.

    I’d suggest a long wear liquid like Estee Lauder’s Double Wear. It’s also ESSENTIAL that your reader use a powder over the liquid to set it- I prefer loose as it looks and feels like nothing on the skin.

    hmm, i’m living in sunny singapore. its hot throughout the year, humid & hot. I’m not sure if it would help. I would normally apply routine skincare…toner, point pore minimizer, essence, mist, eye cream & moisturiser. After the skincare, i would apply eithe Lotree bb cream or mac foundation/revlon photoready foundation (this work best, even sweatproof), i dun apply seperate sunscreen as i mostly stay indoor & most product contains SPF too. Top with loose powder, blush, liquid eyebrow pen, waterproof mascara, eyeliner etc.

    Oh, haha, what a hilarious picture! Great start to my morning.

    About foundation, I would recomend MAC Face and body. Provides light to medium coverage, waterproof formula and it stays put in my face during hot tempratures (30+). It has never budged an inch from my face. Essential to set it with a powder though and to have a really good facial cleanser to take it off. My regular cleansing lotion did not do the trick and I started to get the odd spots. Switched to a more efficient foaming cleanser and the spots dissapeared. So an efficient cleanser is definitly a must. ‘Cause this foundation just did not want to come off…

  6. When I’m in south India, I wear Guelain Parure Extreme–it’s bullet-proof. MUFE Face and Body foundation works really well.

    Make sure the sunscreen is sweat-proof–I love LaRoche-Posay!

    Hello, one really good product for this is by an Aussie suncare brand called Invisible Zinc. They do a tinted moisturiser SPF 30 as a part of their Zinc-based suncare range (no chemical sunscreens). Because it is designed to be worn in beach-based situations it is designed to last, even in heat! It is called Tinted Daywear, we sell it on Cult Beauty, but she’ll be able to pick it up from most stores in Australia.

    The only skin I wouldn’t advise using this on is oily as it is a rich cream and might feel heavy. It is a very popular product on the site though. Hope this is helpful! 🙂

    Estee Lauder Double Wear ftw girls! I go swimming in it and it still looks great after..

  9. Thank you so much ladies, I really appreciate all those suggestions and I’m sure the lady who needed the advice will aswell.

    Also learnt about some new products that I absolutely MUST now check out. This may have been an expensive exercise! x

    Mineral makeup will last the whole day and help keep the face matte 🙂 Tried and tested! hehe

    I live in New Zealand we are just finishing up our summer. It’s not as hot as Australia but we have 100% humidity some days. On these days I use a matt moisturiser, make up primer and maybeline mineral power foundation (a cheapie but it lasts). Setting with a light dusting of powder helps too. All depending on her skin type of course. Now that it’s getting cooler and Im trying revlon photo ready..

  12. Thanks all, you’re too fabulous!

    I know she won’t mind me posting her comment here… but the lady who asked says to you all:

    “Wow thrilled by the response, lots to try! May check out the Aussie one whilst here. Thank you so much, doubt I’ll have a problem when I’m back in the UK!”

    Good work ladies x

    I so want to know what makeup will stay on too!
    Ive been told japanese products are excellent aswell as korean as theyre made to last in humid asian weather. Even their powder makeup works without oxidising which to me would be fantastic!
