Help Wanted: New Climate, New Makeup!

Hello All!  


Jumping in to pick everyone's brains after a relocation from CO ✈️ FL!


I'm seeking advice on how to protect my skin from the sun while having all of the makeup fun! Hoping too for tips on making it stick and keeping it stuck in humid conditions - and for when I'm sweating like a Colorado girl who just dropped into 100 degree heat!


I would like to have two makeup routines; a quick natural glow and a full paint. I have combo bordering on oily skin, and fair, clear complexion. I'm confident in my eye-makeup game, but have found mixed reviews in my research as to how to combat humidity and sweat with my skincare/face products. 


Specifically, I'm hoping for advice on the following:


  • The daily, daytime routine:
    • CC cream vs tinted sunscreen? Other options?


  • The "full shebang"! (With minimal product application hopefully):
    • Lightweight moisturizer with SPF
    • Undereye primer - Smashbox X Becca - pros, cons, other suggestions!
    • Primer and compatible foundation - silicone? water-based? 
      • (Right now considering Supergoop! Mineral Matte Screen and Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place liquid foundation as my pairing)
    • Blush - I understand I'm needing to go cream or balm now vs my old-school powder?
    • Shape Shape Shape! - Highlight and Contour
    • Glimmer and Glitz: Highlight and Bronzer
    • Setting it: Powder, spray, both? (Also, is All-Nighter still the fave?)


Thanks Everyone!!
