If you are from Houston then you understand me when I say it’s humid 95% of the time (even in the winter!) Here are my fav drugstore products that help me lock in my glam all day!
First, I start with a clean face. Summertime is the perfect storm for clogged pores and breakouts. Besides my skin care regimen, I always use Neutrogena cleansing towelettes. They are gentle on my sensitive skin and really get EVERYTHING off! Next, I attack those enlarged pores with Biore nose pore strips. Recently, I’ve been using the charcoal type but all their strips have worked like a charm for years.
Grab a great primer. Give your makeup the best chance of staying on and fresh looking throughout the day with a face primer. The Revlon Photoready perfecting primer does the trick.
Use an awesome matte foundation. The L’oreal Infallible Pro Matte that everyone has been raving about is a great choice and will keep you from looking too oily.
Choose a brow mousse or gel that will keep those brows in line. For a natural look, I like Revlon Colorstay Brow Mousse. Your brows will look fuller and stay put throughout the day.
Don’t forget about a waterproof mascara. No one wants raccoon eyes because their mascara didn’t do it’s join the heat. When I don’t use my falsies, I love Loreal’s Lash Paradise for thicker, natural lashes.
Finish it off with a setting spray. Your makeup look will last a lot longer when you set your entire face with your favorite setting spray. Maybelline’s Master Fix Setting Spray is terrific and I can see what all the buzz has been about.
Hair is downright difficult with heat that won’t quit. I survive by wearing my hair up a lot and relying heavily on dry shampoo for volume and to keep it looking healthy. Dove Refresh + Care dry shampoo has a few scent options and works quite well. Then, I use my standby with Tresemme hairspray to hold everything in place.
