Hot, humid days are not my favourite kind. Unless, of course, I’m poolside somewhere fabulous and sipping on a daiquiri, and there is absolutely no need for makeup … just sunscreen and over-sized sunnies.
But I digress. The reason for today’s post is, firstly, I’ve had the mother of all flus the past week in some of the hottest, humid weather possible. It’s just not nice.
And any time I tried to make myself look half way decent (ie, had to leave sick bed to attend to something work related that couldn’t be missed), it meant trying to apply makeup quicker that it could slide off.
Which is why I’m so excited about this gem of a product – Hi‐Def Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder ($59.95). It’s main premise is to create a flawless complexion but I am loving the subtext … it does this while absorbing excess oil and mattifying shine. Genius.
The powder looks white but goes on to deliver a colourless, flawless finish – perfect for over a tinted sunscreen. I just apply in round buffing brush stokes with a kabucci brush.
It also has a cooling effect upon contact with the skin. And while it’s on your skin it’s working over time thanks to key ingredients: Zincite (a skin‐revitalizing mineral that naturally energizes cells); Rhodolite (a skin‐revitalizing mineral that protects cells); and Licorice Root (provides calming, anti‐inflammatory properties and conceals redness).
Thanks Youngblood, you’ve saved my face!
