When I’m crammed on a packed commuter train on a really muggy day, most normal people would fear the worst – either passing out from the heat or standing (and therefore stuck) underneath someone else’s (stinking) armpit.
My most fearful thing in these situations is my face, and how sweaty and clammy I may appear when I eventually rise to the surface. I have nightmare visions of my face powder gathered in to clumps across my forehead, and camouflage-designed cheeks from where sweat drops have passed from my temples to my jaw – taking my bronzer/blusher out with them along the way.
POREfessional from Benefit is ultra-silky and smooth, reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines, and gives skin a flawless finish. I can be rest assured that when I arrive to the office or a client-facing meeting, I know my makeup will still be in place and that I won’t turn up looking like I have just dipped my face in to a bowl of extra oily olive oil.
I have tried so many skin primers over the years to keep my natural shine at bay and to hold my makeup in place, but there really is only one that works for me on a hot and sweaty day. It’s no surprise it’s still the UK’s number one selling primer and consequently my makeup bag’s best friend.
And relax…sweaty face panic now over.
