I’ve always lived in pretty rainy places, so if I know I’m going somewhere important, or walking in the rain, I’ll make sure to wear waterproof mascara and no eyeliner, or to walk with an umbrella (which I never do normally). Similarly, if it’s really hot, I usually just won’t wear makeup because I HATE the feeling of being sweaty and feeling my makeup on top of my sweaty face.

When it’s hot out I just slap on layers of sunscreen, maybe something on my lips, and call it a day. When it’s cold, dry, and windy, I make sure to prep my under eyes well to avoid dry patches and to make sure I have my lubricating eyedrops. That’s about it, really.

It’s all about the air and humidity.
Whether it’s air travel, a cruise, rain, or snow, my skin reacts.
I have to counterbalance the situation.

Sometimes that means a tint (no moisturizer or foundation), sometimes a tinted moisturizer, and sometimes a silky smooth foundation.
Sometimes I need setting powder as well.

It gets very cold where I live, and in winter I need to account for dryness and the fact that I’ll usually need to wear a scarf over my face when I go outside. So, that means I prefer to use moisturizing makeup, and I tend to wear lipstick and coloured gloss less frequently when it’s cold.

During the winter, my skin is very dry, so all I need is a little extra moisturizer and then I’ll do my normal makeup routine. The summertime is a whole notha story though. I live in Vegas and at temperatures nearing 120, I wear barely anything or nothing at all because it just melts off. I do get really tan though and if I want to look a little more ‘done up’ I’ll put on mascara and blush.. But those are my favs no matter what 🙂

Mostly rain – and of course it rains a lot in Seattle – I haven’t bothered with even moderately heavy eyeliner or smokey eyes since I moved back here. It’s a disaster waiting to happen!

Once fall comes around I pull out my vampy lippies more often but that’s about it. I always do my makeup first before picking out my outfit usually or checking the weather so most times it depends on my mood lol

I’m not sure that the weather has much of an impact, exactly, but the amount of light has some. I tend to wear my beloved dark lip colours a lot more when there’s less light- at night, clearly and also during the winter when the days are shorter.

When it gets very cold and dry, I have to be careful in my choice of lipstick formulas.

As far as actual weather goes, humidity is really the only thing that affects what I choose to wear. When it’s really hot and humid, I tend to go with waterproof, longwear formulas and lighter textures. When it’s really cold and dry, I choose more moisturizing cream based products.

I live in nebraska, if its raining or chance of snow, I wear waterproof makeup. I never wear fake lashes because it is so windy out here. I always wear moisturizer, always wear spf. In the summer I tend to wear tinted moisturizer (usually over regular moisturizer or a primer) instead of foundation because of the humidity.

If it’s below -30, I don’t wear mascara because my eyes water, it freezes on my lashes and then melts when I warm up!

The weather sometimes impacts the colours I pick out. If it’s sunny and warm, I usually pull out happy colours; pinks and corals and golds. When it’s overcast I realise I’m more likely to pick a dark lip or a smoky eye.

In SoCal, we don’t have “seasons”, so weather is always the biggest contributing factor.

When it’s hot/humid, I’ll reach for a TM & MPF, and perhaps a bit of concealer, if necessary. I keep eyes simple (lighter colors, mascara, maybe liner), and lips are either a nude or MLBB (ifmI’m not wearing lip balm). I don’t like to fuss with melting makeup, and brighter lippies tend to migrate in the heat.

With cooler weather, I’ll definitely go further, and often opt for a fuller coverage foundation, blush, vampy lip, and dramatic eyes. When it’s cooler, it is typically evening, so I’m usually going out, which also affects my overall appearance.

Even in mild heat I melt even if I’m not feeling hot. From the tips of my toes to ends of my hair I’m dripping, sweaty mess even. It’s hilarious when I’m around other people because it looks like they’re in a different climate than me (The only good thing is that my sweat doesn’t leave behind any traces; no weird odors, or any oiliness; just evaporates like water) My liner often ends on my cheeks so getting waterproof stuff is a must.

I live in Northern Mexico and it gets really, really hot in the summer, so I try to keep makeup to a minimum on hot days, just a BB cream and a simple eye look and minimal face products, light lipstick.

In winter, I tend to use richer products and do more full face makeup looks. Primer, foundation, powder, heavier eye shadow, the works!
