Fantastic beauty looks that will last on damp and shiny faces
Time Out Dubai staff
Dubai makeup artist Lidia Trzos talks to us about fantastic beauty looks that will last on even damp, shiny faces.
As soon as the weather in Dubai gets slightly cooler, chances are you’ll find yourself flocking outside to enjoy the great outdoors after spending the summer months cooped up in air-conditioned apartments, offices and cafés. Despite the cooler temperatures, winter in Dubai can still play havoc with your makeup thanks to increased humidity levels that can reach up to 90 percent. With that in mind, we sought some expert advice.
Daytime Look 1: Lips that ‘pop’ 1 After applying your base makeup (moisturiser, primer if you have oily skin and oil-free foundation), sweep over some loose powder.
MAC eye shadow, rice paper (see daytime look for details).

Make-up Essentials 1 Go as bare as you dare, which means choosing sheer tinted moisturiser over heavy foundations, or choose oil-free foundation for work – you’ll get better coverage.
2 Always wear suncream or something with an SPF.
3 Choose waterproof formulas to avoid clogging the pores or caking.
4 Use light concealer to cover dark circles under the eyes or reduce any redness.
5 Use loose powder/anti-shine powder for the T-zone.
