Makeup That Can Handle The Weather

Makeup That Can Handle The Weather
If you live in the UK you will understand what I mean when I say the weather is hormonal. We are supposed to be in spring yet I still can't shift wearing my thick, fluffy socks any time soon. Since the weather is constantly up and down, hot or cold I decided to write a blog post on some makeup products that I think can handle any weather and why.

The Body Shop Insta Blur | Primers are a bit like an extra blanket to keep you warm or in this case to keep your makeup from melting off. I have been using this primer for months now and can honestly say it really keeps your makeup in place for hours. Rather than a creamy consistency this has a more silicone, gel-type of texture that I think makes a difference to my skin type (oily). Once applied this instantly mattes out my skin and also reduces any redness my skin may have. I could have my makeup on for 12 hours and this primer won't make my foundation budge, which is exactly what you need to survive all the seasons.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation | Where do I begin with this foundation it has honestly changed my life and my bank account. It is a little bit expensive but if you wear makeup a lot and want that high coverage then I think it's worth it. I have worn this foundation in all seasons and 100% think it can handle any weather. Not that I would wear it as much in the summer but it does protect my skin even on hot sunny days. My makeup always looks flawless when I wear this and it doesn't budge from my face even if it's raining. It is buildable and the coverage is definitely medium to high, so it covers over those nasty spots!

Mac Mineralise Skin Finish Powder | I have used this powder since I was 13/15 and still to this day no other powder competes. Especially if you are oily skin it is good to finish your base makeup off with a bit of powder to matte and set your foundation for the day. Powders are great for stopping access oils from appearing throughout the day so I always like to pop this in my bag and touch up after a few hours. It definitely keeps my foundation at bay and any access oils. This and my primer together really helps limit any oil from appearing even through summer.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara | Nobody likes going home to eyes half way down their faces or as I like to call it 'panda eyes'. I have tried hundreds of mascaras over the years that'll not smudge throughout the day. Roller lash is amazing for not getting panda eyes and gives your lashes instant volume that looks as good as false lashes. You only need one coat of this and you are ready to conker the day ahead.

  1. The weather is crazy at the minute, it's snowing one minute then blue skies the next! Insta Blur sounds so good, just love the sound of that.

    1. I just don't understand British weather one bit, my bag consists of both sunglasses and an umbrella. It is amazing for keeping your makeup from budging!

  2. I now really want to try the double wear foundation, I am yet to find a foundation that stays on my face. The only thing is that it costs alot of money, but I think even skin makes such a difference, so a foundation that stays on is worth the money! X

    1. I'd definitely recommend Double Wear, even ask them to try it on your face (its free), before you purchase
