This week we had a brief respite from the hot, sticky mess that is summer in Queensland.
I even trotted out a pair of jeans for the day and skipped the primer in my morning get-out-the-door makeup routine.
I KNOW. January. No PRIMER.
Don’t worry, it was situation normal yesterday, with a high probability of makeup slide within half an hour of application.
So I primed. As I have done all summer.
And in this video today (yes, come on over to the SY bathroom … it’s clean and I promise no toilet shots), I show you how to keep makeup from sliding off your face with a few products and quick easy steps.
You may have already guessed but, yes, the number one product is this attempt to keep my summer face in place is primer.
Have a little look at what else I use here.
