Living in 30+ degree heat with severe humidity is tough! It definitely makes looking good a challenge. I usually leave the house early in the morning with somewhat immaculate makeup, only to discover that at some point midway through the day the makeup has literally melted on my face leaving me looking rather dishevelled and not quite so put together.
So how does one overcome the makeup meltdown? A makeup setting spray! It really makes a huge difference. So thankful to one of my best friends for letting me know about this gem of a secret.
Which ones do I recommend?
1. Clarins: Fix Make Up
By far the best makeup setting spray I've tried to date. By the end of the day my makeup is still perfectly in place. The bad news however is the product is not available in Singapore but can be found online here in the UK.
2. Urban Decay: All nighter
Urban decay has three setting sprays. The All Nighter, the De Slick (oil control setting spray) and the Chill (cooling and hydrating setting spray). I haven't tried the De Slick given I have dry skin, but have tried the Chill. The Chill is okay but not hydrating as claimed and definitely not as effective as the All Nighter. The All Nighter works incredibly well and makes a great alternative to the Clarins Fix Make Up. For a great pick me up and fresh feel in the morning, keep the setting spray in the fridge!
