Honey, I'm 'homering'…
The issue I’m about to relate to you is one shared by many women all over the world – yet I don’t think it’s ever been given a proper name. I’ve heard SUL (Sweaty Upper Lip) before, but I just didn’t think it was the correct description for the problem many of us face.
Okay, picture this. You’re walking along on a beautiful, slightly warm day, thinking you look a million dollars, and then you spy your reflection in a nearby shop mirror. Oh. My. Gosh. Honey, you’re ‘homering’…
What’s ‘homering’ you ask? Well, it’s when the make-up around your mouth either slides off, or fades away due to the warm weather or as a result of eating, and you’re left with a rather obvious, weird-looking Homer Simpson-esque ring around your mouth. It’s not pretty. Especially when your blush or bronzer is cut off abruptly near your mouth, instead of blending perfectly from your jaw to your temples.
The cure? Well my beauties, I’m yet to officially prescribe anything foolproof. But I can suggest a few preventatives that you might like to try.
Finishing powder: This stuff works as the glue that holds it all together. Dust some over your finished complexion for a face that lasts longer. Try: Almay Pure Blends Loose Finishing Powder.
A stay-put foundation: Perhaps securing your face from the base is the way to go. A long-lasting foundation can help to minimise the chance of any ‘homering’ later in the day. Try: Maybelline New York Super Stay 24hr Makeup.
What is your best defence in the fight against ‘homering’?
