the vacation makeup you need.

The makeup you need in your carry on is here. I took each product with me to Bali and they all passed the I was blown away with these sweat proof makeup products, I can’t help but to share. I tend to stay away from destination that are typically humid. So I don’t have makeup that’ll last in such weather. I know, why not go all natural!? This was the plan at first but I decided that this girls needs something, even if it’s lightweight, to give me that extra sparkle.

I was on the hunt for products that were light and easy to wear in humid weather. Nothing that would clog my pores or look cakey. I searched through Youtube videos and articles all over the web and found a few products that seemed to pass the humid/ sweat test for many. I purchased the following and all were travel size ready; NARS tinted moisturizer, Hourglass Veil primer, Makeup Forever setting spray and L’Oreal waterproof mascara. I also took along my Mac Everlasting liquid eyeliner, Benefit bronzer and a small Tarte eyeshadow.

After washing my face, I applied moisturizer and sunblock. Once it was somewhat dry I applied the Veil primer. The color is white and it’s more watery than creamy. I let it sit for a minute or two, then spray my face with the Makeup Forever setting spray (the Sephora associate gave me this tip). This will help support your makeup staying in place. I then apply the NARS tinted moisturizer with a silicone sponge and blend it all in. Since the formula is light, I want to make sure I waste zero product in a sponge or brush, and make sure that all of the product is applied to my face. Next, I apply my bronzer all over my cheeks, temples and forehead. I lightly apply some eyeshadow and finish up with waterproof eyeliner and mascara. I set everything one more time with the setting spray and VOILA! Ready for the humidity!

Overall my makeup lasted all day even when sweating like a pig. I was really blown away how well each product worked. These items are definitely worth the price, especially the primer. The primer is fifty dollars for the normal size, which can be a steep price but if you off to a humid destination, or dancing the night away, this primer along with the other products will be your holy grail!
