New York summers are unlike any other summer. Beautiful but HOT. HOT.HOT. Some ice cold lemonade and a sweet yellow dress will get your through it, trust me. I have faith that my hair and my skin will get used to the humidity even if I’m a complete mess at the moment. My poor hair, no matter the hairspray or dry shampoo, can’t last 5 minutes. This Yankees hat has been a lifesaver. I’ve noticed hair isn’t that much of a priority amongst New York women. If that’s the case, I know I will fit right in.
Back to the heat: The only way my makeup will survive the moist, hot subways is if I really set and even “bake” my makeup. Baking your makeup means: After foundation is applied, a thick coat of light powder is applied to the face (under the eyes, cheekbones, bridge of the nose, chin, and forehead for definition), and is left on to figuratively “cook” for 10 to 30 minutes into the skin from body heat.
The matte-er your makeup the better or else this humidity will evaporate it in seconds!
