Don’t let the hot weather hamper your makeup mojo.
Admit it or not, the weather in Malaysia is not exactly makeup-friendly. On certain days it would be just nice and beautifully cloudy, but on others, it’s a constant concern of whether your makeup will melt under the sweltering heat.
While the easy way out of this dilemma is to opt away applying makeup, the truth is that such drastic measures are not needed. Instead, just believe in this million-dollar trick – skip the heavy makeup look and focus on your complexion and features instead.
For a casual day out in this unpredictable weather, the safest bet is to just make your skin glow and flaunt your best features. That said, you do also need a few good makeup tools that are not afraid of some heat; just like these babies from the Urban Decay Naked series.
The Naked Flushed palette comes with bronzer, highlighter and blush. You could use them individually or blend them altogether. The point of contouring and highlighting is that you will be able to flaunt your cheekbones, jawline and give yourself a good nose bridge look. You will be surprised how little you need to do to achieve a perfectly defined face.
The Naked Skin Beauty Balm (in Naked Light) may act as a sunscreen or a makeup primer. The main function is to protect your face with SPF 20 and inhibits DNA damage. It acts as a makeup primer as the product also vows to even out face skin tone, hence creating a smoother canvas to apply makeup on.
The Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder is a silky, weightless formula that blurs flaws, sets makeup and cuts shine away from the skin.
The Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss aims to provide a nude look. Its creamy texture and high gloss finish make the product and your lips stand out.
To further help you utilise these hot weather makeup heroes, here are some easy steps to works your ways through a beautifully natural makeup look.
First off, apply the beauty balm onto your face after your daily skincare routine. Next, apply foundation if you want to, if not you could start with the contouring and highlighting. The features you would want to flaunt would be your nose, cheekbones and your jawline. Unfortunately, the loose powder was skipped for this review as the shade was too dark for our skin.
To further complete your look, just put some nude lipgloss over your lips to provide a light, refreshing look. Here we are using Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in Nooner. Not too pale, just enough for a natural looking face, and voila — simple steps for an everyday makeup look that’ll work in any sorts of weather.
The Naked by Urban Decay collection is now available at Sephora stores nationwide.
