A changeable climate can wreak havoc with your make-up. When it’s warm one minute and rainy the next, you need something that’s going to keep your foundation fixed – whatever the weather. Here’s our advice.
It’s no good spending time and money on your foundation if you’re then going to have it spoiled by the rain.
In fact, there are few things more annoying than spending ages getting your make-up just right, only to leave the house and have it turn blotchy or streaky in bad weather. And since heavy rain is pretty much a given at this time of year, if you’re not careful it’s all but guaranteed that your make-up won’t be looking as good as it should.
Which is a shame – particularly if you’ve got a date or an important job interview. And even if you haven’t, you want to have the confidence and inner poise that comes from knowing you look your best.
So how do you get round it?
Well, the good news is that there is a solution – and an easy one. Face powder has spent years in the fashion wilderness, as women considered it too heavy and old lady-ish for everyday wear. But a new generation of technologically advanced powders have brought this make-up classic right up to date.
What do these new powders do?
They’ll hold your make-up in place – even in extreme conditions – making it water, sweat and smudge resistant. They’ll also make your foundation last, meaning you can go for longer without having to reapply.
A Setting Powder that forms a protective layer over the surface of the skin. It’s designed to extend the lasting power of the Corrective or Ultra Corrective Foundation. It has a transparent finish, and will keep Dermablend make-up in place for up to 16 hours. In other words, the whole day through.
And, unlike some powders of old, Dermablend has a light, airy feel. It won’t change the colour of your foundation, and can help protect skin from looking oily.
Professional make-up artists have known for years that the secret to good, long-lasting make-up is setting it in place, and Dermablend does exactly that. But you don’t need to be a professional to apply it. After applying the corrector stick, simply apply the setting powder generously using a powder puff. Wait two minutes, then remove any surplus with a brush.
And then you’re ready to go – whatever the weather.
