I think it’s time for another summer beauty tip! (Although, this one can actually be useful year-round, especially if you tend to find that your foundation doesn’t stay on. Which I think is fairly common in Singapore.)
Because as you may have experienced, sometimes foundation, humidity and sweat just don’t mix.
A few years, I was wearing my favorite tinted moisturizer one night at the beach a few years ago (yes, I remember ’cause it was that bad), and it was hot, humid, stuffy and gross. Of course, very soon after, my face started sweating off the tinted moisturizer, and it was not pretty.
So I was super excited at what I discovered the other day while I was getting ready with a friend before going out.
I didn’t notice what she was doing too much, but when I saw her mix the greasiest-looking sunblock with her expensive Guerlain foundation, I blurted “what are you doing?!”. She nonchalantly replied that the water-resistance sunscreen makes the foundation hold better and survive a night of dancing.
What. A. Genius.
It does make sense. If you can make your own tinted moisturizer by mixing together foundation and moisturizer, why not make your own sweat-proof, long-lasting, non-fade foundation?
All you need to do is squirt a bit of foundation on the back of your hand with some sweat-proof, water-resistant sunblock, mix it together and apply to your face like normal. Voila! Sweaty face be gone! (BTW, I haven’t tried it myself yet, so experiment at your own risk.)
If you try this out, please let me know. Sure, you can always use a foundation primer to make foundation stay on, but this may actually be more fun.
