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 (review here) and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder in Medium Deep (review here) 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?

    @Palak – yeah those are the only things that can stand the heat. But look it rained :)
    @Ki…i wish i could steal your concealers/foundations for now :P Its a huge jump from my natural color, I guess I should enjoy it while it lasts.
    @Cynthia – Fix + is such a blessing and the funny thing is, it stays cool even in 45 degrees. You should definitely invest in it. I'm sooo tanned its not even funny. I cant even recognize myself. :(
