Hi guys, thought I'd post up my regimen for a face that absolutely needs to stay put under harsh, humid conditions. Not sure if it is able to be modified for darker complexions...?

Anyways, I need a real sunscreen on my face, so I use Shiseido 55 block, & it has been a life saver for me. image- http://www.sun-block.net/d/sale.photo/0/b/...SPF-55-PA-2.jpg

All other products have failed for me in major ways. I let that sit for 10 to 15 minutes before putting on makeup...

I skip foundation & go straight to a well blended coat of concealer/ makeup forever concealer in the tube. image- http://s7.thisnext.com/media/230x230/Make-...er_831154CD.jpg

Whatever other makeup colors you use, I've found mineral makeup blusher/bronzer to be the best at staying put.

I've had my best success with Bobbi Brown no smudge mascara... this stuff will wear without smearing for 12 hrs or more... image- http://www.handbag.com/cm/handbaguk/images...78060431761.jpg

I've begun buying straight silica powder, & mixing it with a pinch of cosmetic kaolin clay in a sifting container, u can add mineral makeup to it to add pigment if u like or you can just use straight silica dust.

The product HD powder is exactly that, silica powder, makeup forever has it too... I think it runs $15.00 for a container... -image

I buy bulk instead... just to give you a heads up. It is the most amazing thing I've ever used for my greasy skin.

That's the best I've got to share. Maybe some of the info can help a few folks, Idk... Figured it was worth a shot.

Have a good one! & Good luck! :D

Does the silica dust ever irritate you? I've been hearing some good and bad about it. http://www.workershealth.com.au/facts060.html

How's the coverage of the makeup forever concealer? I've been curious about it but never checked it out. I need heavy duty stuff ;)
