Vacation makeup win!

I was in Orlando and Daytona last week and I braved wearing makeup in the Florida heat. I am ordinarily a sunscreen only kind of girl, but since I switched to mineral makeup I find that my makeup doesn't melt way anymore, so I figured I'd try to look put together for once in vacation pictures!


I used my usual moisturizing regimen: Lancome Visionnaire and Genifique combo followed by Estee Lauder Daywear moisturizer with SPF 25 and Genifique eye cream (phew, sounds like a lot doesn't it?)


I then used bareMinerals primer and original foundation (gotta love all the SPF!), Urban Decay eyeshadow primer and eyeshadow, and finally Lancome cils primer and Hypnose Star mascara. On my lips I used Dr. Weils for Origins Conditioning Lip Balm because I tend to get very chapped no matter what time of year.


Although the foundation did fade as the day progressed my eye makeup didn't budge! I am so, so impressed. So, for those braving the summer heat and humidity I can happily attest to the fact that not all makeup melts in the heat, yay!

UD eyeshadow primer is one of my favorites, it lasts until the very end of the day~


That's wonderful! I need to try out your regimen, it's insanely humid where I am right now.
