Humid Weather Makeup Solutions

For the past couple of weeks, I have been testing out new types of foundations- My goal was to find the one that did "Wonders" for my skin.
I tend to have oily skin and living in SoFlo - the days tend to be more humid than normal.

Types of Foundations Used:
  • Nars Sheer Matte Foundation
  • Nars Matte Powder
  • MUFE Duo Mat Powder
  • Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid
  • Mac Studio Fix Powder Foundation
  • Bare Essentials Matte
Types of Blush Used:
  • Sephora Double Contouring Cream Blush
  • Nars The Multiple
Day 1
Although I normally do not mind Mac, I was not a big fan of this product...
  1. Caused Breakouts
  2. Made my Face Look Shiny Within the First Hour Of Day
  3. Felt Very Caked On
Day 2
Being a pressed powder lover, the adjustment to loose powder was a bit of a concern, luckily though, Bare Essentials has gotten down the art of having a lock mode that stops the powder from spilling out when not being used...
  1. Excellent Color Match
  2. Face Was Some What Shiny After 4 Hours Of Use
  3. A bit too messy to deal with everyday
Day 3
I have never really heard too much about this line, and was hesitant to use because I like using lines that are very popular- but I must say, this one has been my absolute favorite so far!
  1. Excellent Color Match
  2.  Did not appear shiny all day long even after an afternoon workout
  3. Look very natural yet covered every blemish
Day 4
Being a huge fan of others who wear Nars, I was very excited to try my first Nars product...
  1. For the amount of money the item cost, the container is very small and you do not get the most for your money
  2. Shiny after two hours
  3. Felt very caked on and greasy
Day 5
I figured I would save this one for a special occasion- I choose my future brother in law's engagement party picnic, and of course being in the lovely SoFlo, there was a high of 85 that day...
  1. Very Shiny after 30 min of outdoor weather
  2. Had an Orange Hue after it set into my face for a bit
  3. Felt like a Real Housewife of Miami with the amount of makeup it looked like I had on
Day 6
Fortunately, living in SoFlo equals extremely unpredictable weather...which makes life a little more exciting.. and this morning it was in the 50s- which is absolutely perfect weather, especially when I am running makeup trials...
  1. Went on Very light and Natural Feeling
  2. Reduced Redness
  3. Not a spot of shine all day long

And the winner goes to.....
Powder Foundation: -MUFE Duo Matte Powder-
Liquid Foundation: -Clinque Acne Solutions Foundation-
Blush: -Sephora Double Contouring Cream Blush-

I hope these makeup tips help you decide which works best for you.
