There's nothing worse than finally experiencing some hot, glorious sunshine, only for the humidity to leave you looking like a hot mess. To prevent my makeup sliding off my face whenever there's a heat wave or I travel to an exotic destination, there's a few tips I always follow. At least then, when I'm struggling with sweat and my hair has transformed into a frizzy tumbleweed, my makeup remains looking polished.
When the sun is shining, there's cocktails to drink with friends and holiday destinations to fly off to, the last thing you want to do is spend hours in front of the mirror in the morning. You need a simple selection of products and multi-tasking marvels to give you a fresh, healthy glow. When thinking of versatile products that can be used in a multitude of ways, Stila's Covertible Colors spring to mind first. Winning award after award and hailed by beauty buffs as a total, cult classic, these creamy compacts are a summer must-have.
I'm not normally one to blow big bucks on mascara, when there's so many I'm a fan of available on the high-street. But, with a zillion weddings and special occasions to attend over the summer, I thought I'd treat myself. Years ago, I bought the YSL Shocking Mascara and fell in love, so I thought it was about time I added it to my beauty arsenal, once again.
