{GBF Day to Night} The Rimmel London Stay Matte Challenge


Warmer days are making regular appearances here in LA fueling my proclivity for beach outings. I love everything about the beach except the fussy humidity as it melts my makeup and creates unwanted shine. As someone with an ambitious social calendar, my day at the beach predictably ends somewhere inland as dinners and parties pull me out of the water and into the night. So, I'm always on the look out for beauty products that will keep my makeup intact so I can spend more time enjoying the ocean breeze while feeling breezy.

On Saturday, I went to Malibu for some beach side play and wine tasting followed by dinner in West LA and a spur of the moment "let's go dancing" at Honeycut in Downtown. Not wanting to waste time changing outfits or reapplying makeup from day to night, I took the Stay Matte Challenge and brought along my Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and a few key pieces to transition from billowy beach bum to downtown girl. 
I love the velvet light texture of the mousse foundation as it feels like whipped cream. The full coverage means I don't need to use any additional concealer or powder expeditiously creating a natural canvas. A bit of blush and lip gloss completed my simple day look. On the way to dinner, I added lightweight Esqido mink false lashes to glam up my eyes and applied red lipstick, a nighttime staple. The addition of a black jacket and hat took my boho maxi dress from the beach playground to the dance floor. It wasn't until I got home after a day of humidity and dancing that I realized I didn't reach for my powder or blotting paper all day. I'm making the Stay Matte Switch!
