First of all, I want to apologize for not updating as often as I would like to. If you came in looking for a new post, I am deeply sorry. I have been travelling within India, as well, making it difficult for me to take time to pay attention to the blog. Last week I traveled to Varanasi, Allahbad and Lucknow. It was exciting, but terribly exhausting at the same time. It’s so hot and humid in Delhi, I can barely wear any make-up. I have, however, found a couple of products that are heat/humidity friendly.
For my base, I avoid any liquid foundations. I have tanned so much that when I went to MAC, I was NC 43.5 (lol, yes they have a .5 system in India), which is 3.5 shades darker than my usual skin tone. In short, all my foundations make me look like a white wannabe – which is a definite no-no in my books. What works for me right now is my tinted moisturizer with a darker powder on top. I’m using Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer in Medium
) and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder in Medium Deep
) which is really dark on me, but balances out the lighter tinted moisturizer. For everyday, I avoid eyeshadows and strictly stick to my kohl liners. I’m using MAC Smolder eyeliner
and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero.
I just finish off with a simple nude lipgloss like MAC Nymphette
. (swatches here
) Besides that I am constantly reaching out for MAC Fix +
, it is truly a blessing in this heat.What about you guys? How do you beat the heat?
