KAREN: Gurl, why you call me on your banana phone? You know it’s only for emergencies.
KAREN’S IMAGINARY FRIEND: Emergencies!? This is an emergency! This is a makeup emergency! A triple 9-1-1 orange alert makeup emergency of the utmost importance!
KAREN: I feel you, dog… What’s up?
KAREN’S IMAGINARY FRIEND: It is hot in hurr!
KAREN: No sh*t. I’m in the pool right now… A pool of my own sweat!
It smells like roses, of course…
KAREN’S IMAGINARY FRIEND: Does not.
KAREN: Does too.
KAREN’S IMAGINARY FRIEND: Does not!
KAREN: Does too.
KAREN’S IMAGINARY FRIEND: Anyway, the emergency I called you about?
KAREN’S IMAGINARY FRIEND: Well, like, everything I put on my face keeps sliding off because it’s so hot. I’m freakin’ out! What can I do to stop my makeup from melting?
KAREN: Ah, I get it. I can totally help you with that. I’m gonna text you a list of products…
Wait — can you get texts on that banana phone?
LOL! Imagine having a conversation like that with yourself on a banana phone in public. People will think you’re cray. 🙂
There was a point to this whole little story, though… I’m wondering about hot weather makeup product tips — hot as in shirtless Ryan Gosling in a chaise lounge. What are your top three?
Here are mine…
- Primer: I use this to anchor my face makeup. MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance is my favorite for hot weather.
I’ve also started really liking Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Primer.
I’m a BIG believer in primer.
- Foundation: In particular, MAC Face & Body. It evens out my skin tone, feels light, and, like a tired 20-pound tabby, it doesn’t move once it sets.
- Highlighting Lotion: Sometimes, when I’m not in the mood to wear foundation, I’ll apply a layer of highlighting lotion, just to give my skin a little extra lift.
