If you are visiting Italy this summer

Friday, 3 July 2015

If you're planning on visiting Italy this summer, let me tell you most parts of Italy can get super hot in the summer. High temperatures, heat and humidity. It can get really hot but can feel hotter because of the urban heat effect. Italians themselves tent to desert the cities.

With the high tempatures makeup tent to melt off your face. Here're a few tips on how to stay cool and some make up essentials for a summer/heat proof makeup.

* Drink lots of water. You'll find drinking water fountains throughout the country where you can drink and refill your bottle.

*Spray yourself with a mist of water. A  travel size thermal water is perfect.

*Cool down with a gelato! But try also the granita; it's super refreshing and delicious. 

When it comes to the beauty routine keep it simple, choose light weight products.
These are the beauty essentials you need to keep your make up looking fresh and pretty in the summer heat 

  • SPF. Sun protection is essential in sunny Italy. La Roche Posay Anthelios Dry touch is perfect to apply under makeup. It absorbs quickly and leave a matte finish on the skin. 
  • Tinted Moisturizer. Choose a light weight base in place of heavy foundations. Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue contains SPF30 and gives a healthy glow without looking like sweaty mess. 
  • Bronzer. To warm up the complexion and give that sunkissed look. Nars Laguna bronzer gives a beautiful bronzy look.
