5 FAVORITES: ENRIQUE’S HARSH WEATHER ESSENTIALS
Few things are worse than taking the time to do your makeup only to have it ruined by harsh weather. Here are some of my tips to keep your makeup fresh and flawless in any forecast.
TOM FORD Waterproof Foundation/Concealer
A flawless complexion is essential to the TOM FORD face. TOM FORD's first full-coverage, waterproof formula conceals flaws as both a comfortable, breathable foundation with a naturally radiant finish and an effective concealer that hides noticeable imperfections from darkness under the eyes to blemishes on the skin. This hybrid formula withstands harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity and water while maintaining an even complexion. Helps minimize the appearance of tattoos and port stains.
Usage: apply on clean moisturized skin with fingertips, brush or sponge applicator.
Tom Ford Waterproof Foundation/Concealer is the perfect multitasking product to have in your foundation wardrobe for those days mother nature puts you to the test. This foundation is comfortable and breathable with a flawless finish that withstands harsh weather including heat, humidity and water.
La Mer The Renewal Oil
This highly potent, multi-faceted dual-phase oil is a luxurious formula created with the highly active oils of the famous Crème de la Mer ‘Miracle Broth’ formulated for the face, but indulgent enough to be used on hair and the body.
Designed to mimic the skin’s hydrolipidic structure with a combination of water and inspired by The Miracle Broth’s oil of eucalyptus and sesame, you activate it with a gentle shake.
Be sure to moisturize and prime the skin well before applying any long wearing formulations, since along with their extended wear comes minimal play time before they set. My suggestion to counter this situation is to apply a small amount of the La Mer Renewal Oil under your foundation: not only does this allow the foundation to glide on with ease, it also increases the amount of time you have to manipulate the product onto the skin before it sets.
TOM FORD Waterproof Extreme Mascara
Tom Ford Extreme mascara features a luscious, deep black hue designed to magnify your eyes and intensify your look. The formula features a combination of the darkest black carbon and lash-filling powders to transform your lashes while keeping away caking, clumping and crumbling.
We’ve all seen our favorite actress get caught in the rain with running mascara on the silver screen. We all love a little drama, but you probably don’t have a personal makeup artist waiting for you at your office. I don’t recommend it for everyday wear, but waterproof mascara is the perfect tool for rainy days and inclement weather and Tom Ford’s Waterproof Extreme Mascara will give you pitch black high impact lashes.
Eve Lom Cleanser
Described by Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief of Vogue, as "probably the best cleanser in the world," this is an extraordinary product. Dr. Sherber recommends it to nearly all patients because it is remarkably effective at bringing every skin type into balance. The proprietary blend of oils (Egyptian chamomile, eucalyptus, clove, and hops) cleanses deeply because oil dissolves best in oil: this melts away even waterproof sunscreens or makeup, sinks into pores to remove excess oils and pollutants, and nourishes even the most sensitive skin types. The formulation emulsifies and turns milky when removed with the accompanying muslin cloth and warm water, leaving skin feeling soft and perfectly clean.[section video]XyGizGdxmZk
Long wearing and waterproof makeup formulations require thorough cleansing, and I recommend a double cleanse to ensure that you have a clean slate for the skincare that follows. First, start with the legendary cleansing balm by Eve Lom. This oil-based cleanser dissolves all makeup and brings your skin into balance with its proprietary blend of oils.
La Mer The Cleansing Gel
- calming gel, removes excess oil -
The Cleansing Gel is a light foaming gel that works to remove excess sebum without irritating, drying or stripping the skin. The Miracle Broth™ infuses skin with precious nutrients, immersing it in moisture and energy.
Massage over damp skin to create a rich, foaming lather. Rinse thoroughly. Avoid eye area.
Follow the previous step with La Mer’s water-based Cleansing Gel for a “double cleanse.” This gel emulsifies and thoroughly cleanses without drying the skin, while infusing it with Dr. Max Huber’s soothing seawater mineral-based Miracle Broth.
