beauty bits

So, now that it's summer (aka hot, humid and just plain sticky) I've been trying to find a way to still wear my daily make up and not have it melt off me on my walk to work. Finally had to realize that no matter what company's make up I try, it's just going to be sweated off and wasted. So, I am washing my face really well, applying my sunscreen, throw on the shades and leave the house with my make up in my bag. The plan I have now is to double up on the basics.....moisturizing tint, mascara, eye liner, lip liner, etc. I'll leave those at work to alleviate the stuff I have to carry on the day to day. All I'll have to take to work in the actual colors of shadow and lipstick for that day.

Now I've tried many brands of foundation and tinted moisturizers, but I've not found one that doesn't get removed from my face once I start sweating.....and some of this stuff is super expensive so I hate wasting it.
