Scaled Back Beauty Routine in the Heat?

Do you guys scale back your beauty routine when it's hot out?  The past few days have been hideous here and so I've just been doing BB cream, mascara, and lip gloss (I just bought the Bite 15 for Sephora so I've been having a lot of fun with lip gloss).

 

Do you guys dial back your routine when it's hot out or do you still do your full routine?

I completely skip foundation/bb cream. My skin color changes every day and I suck at mixing colors.  HaHahahaha

 

I stop wearing blush and only wear bronzer

 

Everything else is the same!

I dial back- or more appropriately, I swap products.

 

Foundation becomes tinted moisturizer

Mascara becomes waterproof

Primer under everything

Eye makeup all becomes waterproof

Often, no blush- because I'll be flushed from the heat.

I don't have to change my make up, but I do have to change my skin care routine.

I've been lucky so far this summer.  Last year was ridiculously hot and humid and we had several 100+ degree days in Washington, D.C.  So I invested in some great products that wear very well during the summer months.  I still do a full face for work, because I want to look polished but still natural.  Most of my focus is on protecting my skin.  I definitely use sunscreen and the Murad OIl-Control Mattifier SPF 15, which is my holy grail moisturizer for the summer.  I also use the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15, which makes my makeup water resistant.  If I do wear foundation, I alternate on any given day between the water-based MUFE Face & Body and the NARS powder foundation.  I set the liquid foundation with the Tarte Micronized Clay Finishing Powder, which keeps me looking matte and cool all day.  I also use the UD De-Slick Oil-Control Setting Spray, which is a godsend.  My NARS highlighting/blush duo is all I need for cheek color, along with a light tint or stain for my lips.  My eye shadow tends to be neutral-colored powders or if I want a pop of color with lasting power, I love MUFE Aqua Cream shadows and eye pencils.  A little goes a long way. 

 

Of course, I keep my Boscia green tea blotting papers in my purse and drink lots of water.
