DKOR LIVING: DKOR DESIGNER SILVIA PARRA BREAKS DOWN SUMMER MAKEUP ESSENTIALS
As Interior Designers in South Florida it is SO important to have a good presence even when making our routine Job Site visits. Makeup is something that for us girls, helps you out a lot! Makeup helps contribute to your professional appearance, no matter where you are – including sweaty, dusty and loud Interior Design job sites. Summer in Miami is hot and humid and that presents a challenge when it comes to applying your makeup. But don’t fret! I’ve got you covered. Keep reading for the my best (and normally top secret) tips…
Use a Weightless Foundation: It is very important to use a light foundation that covers everything perfectly and flawlessly without feeling cakey. One of my favorites for the humid and hot weather is NAKED Skin Weightless Ultra Definition from Urban Decay. It’s long lasting and perfect for days that I am on job sites for up to half the day or even all day!
Powder: The last step, and for me the most crucial, is sealing your make up! You can end up melting in the middle of a meeting with the General Contractor, so be sure to always seal your make up. For that I use Blot Powder from MAC cosmetics. It is so light that it will last for hours.
Use SUNSCREEN!!!! One of my favorites is Sheer Physical UV defense from SkinCeuticals. The sun is so damaging, for us Miami girls, it is a must to wear sunscreen and protect that precious skin! Don’t forget this one.
Happy Makeup, Happy Summer! Don’t forget to follow along all DKOR Living blog posts and up-to-date photos on Instagram.
