Keep it fresh with some easy tips

7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE -

W ith hu­mid­ity sky­rock­et­ing and tem­per­a­tures reach­ing the high 40s, it can be chal­leng­ing to keep look­ing fresh through­out the day and into the night.

But you don’t have to have a melt­ing face, all you need is a bit of prepa­ra­tion and some good qual­ity prod­ucts to be able to beat the heat.

Here are three ways to keep your­self look­ing fresh this sum­mer...

BE PRIMED AND READY

Prepa­ra­tion is ev­ery­thing when it comes to long-last­ing make-up. Adding a primer to your rou­tine gives your base an ex­tra layer of de­fence: the silky, al­most dryfeel­ing for­mula doesn’t sink into skin but sits on the sur­face, mean­ing your foun­da­tion sits on top of that and won’t wear off as eas­ily. Becca’s Ever Matte Pore Per­fect­ing Primer (bec­ca­cos­met­ics.com) is per­fect to keep your foun­da­tion in check. Oth­er­wise, try the Max Fac­tor Face Fin­ity for a 3-in-1 ap­proach, with primer, con­cealer and foun­da­tion all in one bot­tle. max­fac­torara­bia.com

SEAL YOUR LIPS

Whether you want sheer or full-im­pact colour, there's a lip prod­uct that will linger as long as you need it to. Smith & Cult The Tainted Lip Stained (net-a-porter.com), may look muted on the wand, but it’s for­mu­lated to re­act to the pH in lips, bring­ing out a brighter (but still sub­tle) shade that lasts even when the balm has worn off. For ul­ti­mate pout stay­ing power, you can’t beat a matte lip­stick. Try Made In Sephora lip stains for long-stay­ing power. See sephorame.com

SET THE TONE

Once you’ve fin­ished the rest of your make-up, a gen­er­ous spritz of set­ting spray will cre­ate an in­vis­i­ble shield, lock­ing foun­da­tion and blusher in place. Try the Ur­ban De­cay Makeup Set­ting Spray for longer last­ing looks, just spritz on top of your make-up. See ur­ban­de­cay.com
