Melt-Proof Make-Up Tricks for Mamas in Singapore!

Style & BeautyPost Category - Style & BeautyStyle & Beauty - Post Category - BeautyBeauty

Living in a country where 50% humidity is considered a dry day, a mama needs some nifty tips and tricks up her sleeve to stay fresh and dewy (instead of looking permanently sweaty!). With the weather making our make-up fall off quicker than you can say get me in the air-con, we bring you the ultimate guide to melt-proofing your make-up.

Laura-Mercier-Mac

Lighten Up
Because you want your skin working with, and not against you on a sizzling day – give it a fighting chance and don’t pile too much on top of it. The less product there is, the less there is to slide off and for this we are talking make-up multitaskers. We love Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Broad Spectrum that not only hides imperfections while adding a dose of colour, but thanks to SPF20 we don’t need to add sunscreen.

Primp and Prime
If you remember one thing from this list, make it this: primer keeps hold of make-up stronger than an NFL player without a pre-nup keeps hold of his wife. Use it on your face to stop your foundation running and on your eyelids to stop those yucky eyelid creases. Here at Sassy Mama, we’re big fans of any of the Prep+Prime range from MAC.

Stila-Tarte-Benefit

Wave hello to Waterproof
Yes we know it’s humidity and not an outright downpour but the silicone based ingredients in waterproof make-up will help it really stick all day long. Stila’s Waterproof Crayon Eyeliner sure does work the nine to five while Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Flashes has the strongest staying power we have seen so far.

Wave goodbye to the gloss
Well not altogether but at least swap the straight gloss for a glossy stain which will leave the colour behind long after the gloss has gone. With a gorgeously girly pinky red hue, and ideal for cheeks and lips, Benefit’s Posie Tint is never far from our make-up bags.

Body-Shop-Make-up-Forever

Be Prepared
As the Girl Scout’s motto goes: be prepared. Carrying the likes of the Body Shop’s Blotting Papers to keep shine under control or Make Up Forever’s High Definition Finishing Powder might seem like a lot of work now, but trust us, you will thank us when that humidity hits.

That’s it mamas — keep these handy products in your bathroom cabinet or nappy bag and you’ll be shine free and fabulous in record time!
