MOTD and Tips for Wearing Makeup in Warmer Weather

Hello Lovelies!
 
Today is an absolutely beautiful warm day, warm enough that I wasn't really feeling doing too much to my hair or wearing much makeup so I created this look.
I don't really have any plans today besides just hanging out with my little ones hence the simple braided pigtails and t-shirt. Here in my apartment in Michigan it is 85 and I am definitely feeling it so I wanted a really light makeup application today.

Makeup Tips for Warm/Hot Days
*Stay away from thicker/heavier foundations that will make you feel like you are melting. I like to wear either a simple BB Cream if my skin is looking great, or if I need a bit more coverage I go with Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam, it provides the coverage I need with a light and airy feeling.
 
* I ALWAYS wear an eye shadow base to prevent creasing and smudging, even if it is cold outside, but it helps out A LOT when it's warm out especially if you tend to sweat.
 
*If you want a long lasting application in this warm weather I recommend using a setting spray, I like Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray.
 
* I also recommend a hydrating mist to keep your skin feeling refreshed, I love Juice Beauty's Hydrating Mist, you can pop it in the fridge for an extra boost of refreshment.
 
*Either choose products with SPF included or make sure you apply SPF even if you aren't in direct sunlight it can still cause damage.
 
*If you plan on heading near the water on your warm days make sure you grab a waterproof mascara, there is nothing worse than dripping mascara... Except for maybe an embarrassing bikini malfunction...
 
*Pack some Blotting Papers in your bag to help blot away oils without ruining your makeup.
