??? Regarding MMU in Summer or warmer weather

Recommended Posts

I am new to MMU only since the fall of 06 anyway my question is because 1 summer is coming and 2 I am going to AZ for 2 weeks in May. How does MMU work in warm weather? Do you still use it? Does it stay on? REally curious plus woith my trip coming it will be warm, warmer than my state WA so I need to know to plan LOL. Any summer time tips are welcome~~:tocktock:

MMU is even better in summer in comparison to regular MU in my opinion. There are a couple of tricks that help. If you have oil/humidity issues, apply setting powder then your foundation, then another light layer at the end. MMU will stay put as long as you using blotting action rather than wiping. It will even stay on after being in water if you don't rub the MMU off.

My one SIL got hooked on MMU because I had applied some to her hand to show her how it feels and she forgot about it all day- including swimming. She was doing dishes and noticed it was still there.

It definitely FEELS so much better.

I am searching for my new foundation color right now. I used BE and would mix Light and Tan to match my summer skin but got the dreaded itch. So I found Lumiere. The l-m golden is perfect for winter but the m golden was too olivey. Got M. Warm and it's a good intermediate color but I think I'll even need the next darker warm shade.

I find bronzers look a little fake- either too orange or too ruddy on me. Although I do like Mad Mineral's Sheer Tan- it goes on quite sheer and just imparts a hint of color. I have also used this for contour color. They are still having their 5 gram jar blowout and another 15% off- just went there today. Decided to make my mom a mineral makeup Mother's day gift (she's never done makeup but wants to start) and got their SPF powder for her.

You know I am very impressed with Mad minerals ordered last month from them and I am going to order again from them before the 15% sale ends very good quality which I wasnt really expecting.

Hey! I live in Las Vegas and in the summer the temperature sometimes gets to be 115 or higher. I use BE and it lasts all day, sometimes I just use Mineral Veil a few more times a day that I usually do, but the foundation lasts all day.

I live in the south and it is hot and humid! Mineral foundation definitely lasts much better than regular makeup. It even lasts through swimming so perspiration isn't a problem. Just dab dry, don't wipe.

    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
