Whilst on holiday recently we had some pretty extraordinary weather. In fact, when we were in Washington DC, the temperature reached a whopping 39 degrees. If I'm honest, 39 degrees is too hot for makeup, but when you're taking lots of selfies you want to look your best. I tried a lot of makeup combinations and sadly, a lot of foundations and products really let me down. However, I did find a winning combination that gave me perfect makeup all day long.
I started every single day with a full cleanse, SPF and sweat can play havoc with your skin if you're not careful. I was cleansing with Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Power Serum. This serum is incredible for dehydrated skin, perfect for recovering after high heats and long haul plane journeys. Then I was applying my moisturiser, which is the Garnier Pure Active Moisturiser which is great for combatting blemishes.
After a full cleanse it was makeup time, and I started with the most important step; SPF. The SPF I've recently falling in love with, is the La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid. It's a formula containing 50SPF+ and let me tell you, my skin didn't burn once in three weeks. It's quite the achievement!
So, onto the actual makeup! My foundation of choice was the
This combination really kept my makeup in place all day, which made me incredibly happy. Nobody wants foundation melting off your face when you're at the top of the Empire State Building!
