It gets hot
out here. Really hot. And in case you haven't figured it out, cream-based
make-up usually doesn't last too long÷either on your face or in your make-up
bag÷in the sweltering desert heat. What's a beautiful glamour puss to do?
all, if you did bring cream-based
make-up out here, such as cream foundation, lipstick, or creamy eye color, be
sure to put it all in a plastic zip-lock bag and store it in your cooler.
There's nothing worse than getting ready to doll yourself up, only to discover
that your favorite lipstick has turned to mush.
you're discovering the above safety tip just a little too late, then rely on
pencils and powders to do the trick. Thankfully, the desert heat is kinder to
these particular cosmetic tools, allowing one to survive in the desert
beautifully. Forget the lipstick and instead, use a lip-liner pencil to color
your kisser. The color will stay on longer, and your lips won't feel goopy
either. Powdered eye shadow still works out here, as do eyebrow pencils. Draw a
bit on your eyelid, then smear with your fingertip, to give your lid some color
that will remain on despite the heat.
liquid make-up, such as mascara and liquid foundation, also survive the desert
environment relatively intact. Be careful with foundation however÷you're likely
to just sweat most of it off, so perhaps it's better to just forego your usual
regimen and use a light powder instead.
can't stress enough that the most important make-up tip we can offer is to use
sunblock as a base for everything! But then, you knew that already, didn't you?
Now go out there and stay beautiful!
