“..But lets try to look decent in this heat, anyway” picks
HALLO beauty friends! As mentioned in my past post, I’ve been working on a shoe brand launch so my blog has taken a backseat for the past month. I can’t wait to share with you all what I’ve been working on. For now, I humbly ask if you could follow @meninastepph on Instagram if you could! Thank yew!
And can I just share? This heat is making me enemies with makeup. That and my recently busy and leave-now-or-you’ll-be-extremely-late-so-just-stay-at-home-if-you-dont schedule that has me forgoing all else except SUNSCREEN (!!!), brows (sometimes I even skip it), powder (because OIL SLICK even before you step out of the house) and a touch of color and moisture on the lips. Add to that my last huge can of Avene Thermal Water mist that I keep in my bag always despite the weight because I’m not the misty~ mom for nothing. Hah!
Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint. Letting go of lipsticks for the time being because they’re just too iffy on the lips during these heat spells. My lips have been crazy dry too so just upon application, they’d be peeling in flakes. I even have a couple of ‘wounded’ areas already because of the dryness. Yowch. This baby tint gives the right amount of moisture with a good amount of pigment that camouflages the wounded parts that’ve peeled off.
Chanel Les Beiges Powder in N30. Being a dewy skin advocate, it’s tough for me to say that I actually want a more matte look this season because dewy equates to sticky (thanks to sweat!) nowadays. This Les Beiges powder is perfect for everyday use after sunscreen because it goes on almost translucent but mattifies and evens out the skin beautifully with its minimal pigment. And it doesn’t ever CAKE. No powder bits clinging on to dry areas, no hint of powder anywhere. No heavy feeling like you’re wearing anything. Call it magic! LOL. But yes, my powder BFF this season. I love the brush that it comes with as well, it can actually be utilized especially for touch-ups throughout the day.
Guerlain Meteorites in Rose. I think the recurring theme for my summer picks is “lightweight” and “barely there”. Bust out my Meteorites again after hibernating for a while because I’ve discovered more “out there” glow-inducing options. This time, since I’ve foregone any kind of base, these balls bring back ‘life’ to my now-preferred matte look. The “glow” isn’t as apparent or palpable when I use liquid highlighter or my Burberry Nude Radiance but it’s there. Trust-me-I-wasn’t-just-influenced-by-my-beauty-blogger-friends-who-love-these-balls it’s there.
Benefit Bathina Scented Body Mist. This travel-sized body mist from Benefit’s best-selling Bathina body balm keeps me smelling ‘just-finished-bathing-in-peaches-Sicilian-lemon-white-blossoms-and-velvet-plum” all throughout the day. Since it has no alcohol, I use it as a hair mist as well. Of course, the downside to no alcohol is it doesn’t last long so you have to spritz all day. Upside is, using it on your skin makes it a bit more hydrated just without the sheen from the famed Body Balm.
