Summer Essentials: The Makeup That Won't Budge

3:38:00 PM

Let's face it- the summer season is upon us. And with that, comes the unbearable heat. But hey, summer isn't that bad- we have an excuse to plan a trip to the beach with friends, a trip abroad with the family, there's no school which means there's less traffic and we can finally bring out our little shorts and cropped tops without people judging us (okay, maybe I judge from time to time- who wears skimpy shorts and cropped tops in December?!)

Even if the season has a right to be hot (like, ridiculously I'm-going-to-faint-get-me-out-of-here hot) it is only enjoyable when one finds themselves at the beach, sipping on a cold fruit shake, getting that nice golden tan. But for the rest of us stuck here in the city, looking good and feeling fresh despite the heat can be a big challenge. On a normal hot day, I'd choose to simply slap on a bit of my Chanel Le Blanc (since it has SPF 35) with some baby powder and then do my brows. Or you know, go out without any makeup on. But on those days where we have a little bit more to do and more places to go, it's nice to look good despite the heat.

I was able to find a couple of products that can actually withstand the Manila heat. I've found that these products stay on your face all day, not ending up all melted on your shirt.

Base- Chanel Le Blanc Whitening Makeup Base
Concealer - Collection Lasting Perfection in Light 02
Powder - Mac Studio Fix Powder in NC30
Blush - Tarte 12 hour Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed
Bronzer/Contour - Mac Maleficent Sculpt Powder* limited edition
Brows - Etude House Brow Pencil (Dark Brown) and Maybelline Fashion Brow Tint (Dark Brown)
Eyes - Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows
Mascara - Maybelline Great Lash
Lips - Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw, Mac Velvet Teddy and Candy Yum Yum, Marc Jacobs Kiss Pop in Pop Rock

These are my go-to summer essentials in the makeup department. What are yours? :)
