The humidity in NY was out of control this week. Rainy, hot & humid weather = a disastrous makeup situation…if you aren’t using the right products! I’ve already professed my love for Rimmel London’s Stay Matte Foundation (which I will absolutely be using all Summer), but today it’s all about primer!!
Skindinavia sent over their brand new Makeup Primer Spray a couple of weeks ago and I’m obsessed! I can’t begin to explain how well this stuff works. I’ve never used a primer spray before so I wasn’t really sure if it would apply evenly and actually keep my makeup put, but boy was I wrong! A couple of spritzes of this before applying your makeup and it’s not budging…not even a little! The first day I used it I went to work from 9-4, ran errands after work then had dance class for 2 hours…I got home at 10:30 that night and my makeup looked EXACTLY the same as when I applied it that morning!
