The Residence’s Favorites : Making my way through summer

August 11, 2013

Now that I’m in Lebanon for the holidays, I got rid of Dubai’s 50 degrees celsius heat. However, humidity is still haunting me, here in Lebanon. A few products are helping me battle against the summer weather in order to protect my makeup and keep it in place.

Jane Iredale’s Pommisst adds up the dewiness to the look while hydrating it. It’s the perfect pick me up! I ditched the UD All Nighter setting spray that I raved about last may. Crazy, I know. Unfortunately, there is some sort of problem or technical mistake with the lid of the bottle which makes it leak liquid. I had an unpleasant surprise in my suitcase when I arrived to Lebanon. Because of that, I can’t carry it around in my handbag *hashtag sad*.

Staying in the mist mood, the Lush “Eau Roma Water” toner has been very good to me lately. It controles oils very well without drying the skin. If you can’t get this, rose water has the exact same effect and you can find it in your kitchen. Thumbs up for kitchen beauty!

If I had to leave the house with one makeup product on, it would definitely be mascara. I love a good mascara, everyone knows that. And They’re Real by Benefit is more than a good mascara… It’s a great mascara! I’m not the biggest fan of the waterproof ones, but They’re Real is only water resistant so it will not leave mascara stains under my brow bone (where my lashes reach). This one is an all-time favorite!

My life without Urban Decay’s Primer Potion is meaningless. Am I exaggerating? Not at all. I get very oily lids and like to keep my eyes intact during the whole day. This primer keeps EVERYTHING in place. I hope the capital letters show how good it really is.

I’ve been enjoying these four products for summer and been using them everyday. I think this is turning out to be more of a favorites post… As for me, I’ve been trying to lay off the laptop this summer. Instead, I’ve been reading books a lot. Need some major catching up on blogs!

What are your favorite products for summer’s heat? Leave a comment below 🙂
