Hold the base…



I’m currently abroad in one of the most humid and ridiculously overheated climate I’ve ever experienced. The second you step outside you feel as if you’ve walked into an oven- and we’re by the sea! This means evenings aren’t much better with the heat still stifling, so I’ve had to downsize my beauty routine in the evenings in order to accommodate the heat.

Hair is being left to it’s own devices, I had a trim last week so my long layers look quite nice just left to air dry, no need for hair tongs! I tried using them on our first night and within minutes they were obsolete.

Face makeup like foundation or even something light like tinted moisturiser has been making my face feel sweaty and unpleasant, so I’ve started just using moisturiser and my NARS creamy concealer under my eyes, around my nose and on any blemishes. And you know what? I kind of love it. Not only does it cut down the bedtime skincare routine (less makeup to remove) but it gives skin a chance to breathe. Last night my skin wasn’t feeling 100% so I just used  La Roche Posay’s Effaclar Duo as moisturiser which imparted a lovely glow, and then went in with the concealer. An easy time saving makeup routine!
