Bare Faced Truth

May 3, 2016 | Fashion

Today’s post stems from the perspective of living in Western Nigeria; Lagos to be precise!!!

Is anyone experiencing the heat wave??

It is absolutely nuts!! Climate change perhaps?? Coupled with the epileptic power supply , wearing a full face of make-up doesn’t quite feel like the smartest move.It all started with the usual learning by experience: “Make-up fully done, powdered to the nth degree and it all melts as soon as I stepped out of the house. Melts the first time, dab dab, blot powder. Looking a bit weird already. Humidiity, Oily skin, resurfaces and the endless circle commences”.

Till I came up with a fairly practical soution: “Ditch the make-up, except  I am off to a major function. At least till the heat wave is over!

A great thing came out of this. I have become really comfortable without powder etc. Quite liberating to be quite honest.To those still coping with the heat and managing to keep their faces “perfectly beat”, please share some tips.

In the meantime,  I shall keep hoping for more agreeable weather!!
