Tomorrow I finally head off to Montreal with a bunch of friends in pursuit of hot weather, shopping, French food, exploration and ultimately the music festival Osheaga. I decided I should write up a makeup packing list to share my hot weather makeup tips with you and mostly, of course, to ensure I don’t forget anything – I am unashamed to admit I am blonde after all. Since I was graced with being of the super pale variety in combination with very oily skin, my philosophy for makeup in hot weather includes SPF, anything matte-ifying and a bold lip. Keep it simple but still put together. Lets be real…. I am a makeup artist so I probably have in my bag a dozen more things than the average female. To save some space in my luggage I decanted most of the products I am bound to use into small sample cups. Traveling with me is my friend Kristina and she posted a blog post too with some festival packing lists so make sure to check it out!
