Heat & Sweat proof makeup routine! (30+ day product review of THREE products)

After months of trial and error ($$$ & $$$) testing on different products, I can finally say I came up with a set of products that is really heat proof/sweat proof. 

(This is not saying the makeup will look as flawless as you first apply in the morning after 24 hours. However,this routine will help makeup stay on longer and give you less shine throughout the day.)


1) Wash face well, exfoliate every other day (oily skin only, dry skin once a week).

2)  Mix your favorite moisturizer with the Boots Expert Shine Control Lotion 
     my favorite moisturizer right now is the:
     Aveeno Active Naturals Ultra Calming Daily Moisturizer, SPF 15, 4 Ounce

3)  Dot mix onto forehead, left and right cheeks and chin. Gently massage into skin.

4)  Apply small amount of Smashbox photo finish primer oil free onto T-zone only.
      (Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer - Oil Free 1oz (30ml))

5)  Spray Skindinavia Moisture Lock Makeup Finish
      (or the No more shine version - Skindinavia No More   Shine Makeup Finish, 2 Ounce) onto face.
      I find that the "moisture lock makeup finish" works better, the "no more shine" version is too drying and
      can actually cause your skin to become more oily (Your skin will produce MORE oil to moisturize itself
      if your skin is too dry).

6)   Apply favorite foundation & concealer as usual. I have been using the Garnier BB Cream I did review
       on earlier. It does a slight better job at controlling oil than my other liquid foundations (Not better than
       Revlon 24 hour color stay though, but review on this later).

7)   Spray Skindinavia Finish onto face again.

8)   Apply Smashbox photo finish with face powder brush onto face.
      (Smashbox Photo Set Finishing Powder)

9)  Apply bronzer & blush as usual.


Good luck~
