I do not stick to a climate; our trips run the gamut of snow trips to Asia’s hot and sweaty regions. While not as necessary in colder climates, I have personally found that it is a must for hot or humid places. I have oily skin, to begin with, and makeup can and does melt off my face – literally.
If I use a makeup setting spray, I can avoid all of this and maintain my look.
And, yes, the obvious solution to all of this is not to wear makeup. Each to their own😊
Last year, in Cambodia, I was able to keep a fresh face throughout an entire day of visiting floating villages. And, hot is not a word that even comes close to describing the heat. I would describe the weather as blistering.
Despite the extreme heat, no sweat for me, and no makeup run! Many of you asked me if these photos were touched up, and the answer is no! The lack of sweaty dewy face is down to using a makeup setting spray – period!
The best way for me to describe this one is it sticks like glue – literally. For some, this will be negative, but this one is 100% bulletproof.
The product claims to hold your makeup in place for sixteen hours. It does this and then some. I have been swimming in this, been out for twelve plus hours, and had no movement. I have also slept overnight in this one and woken up with a full face of un-touched, unmoved pristine makeup.
If you read other reviews, this is often the one that brides turn to because of its staying power.
Urban Decay All Nighter contains patented temperature control technology. I used it in Cambodia. And it is my go-to for beating the heat.
