Southern Women are known to be just a little high maintenance. When we go out of the house, our hair and makeup is done, and we’re dressed in proper attire. Even our faces are always done to the nines. That natural look you gush over is created in multiple steps with a bevy of product. So, when my friends over at Garment Saver reached out to me and asked if they could send me a sample of their Makeup Guard to test, I jumped.
Not only am I a Southern Woman, I’m also a woman of a certain age and my body likes to overheat when I least expect it. As such, I don’t like dressing before I do my hair and makeup. That’s where Garment Saver’s Makeup Guard came in handy. With Garment Saver’s Makeup Guard changing into my little black dress or white silk blouse didn’t cause me to end up sweatier than normal. These sheer covers are made from a pliable knitted fiber blend similar to gauze that is designed to gently stretch over hair styles and makeup in order to create a barrier against unwanted contact. Its unique build easily stretches to cover elegant up-dos without clinging to the face or hair, and can be used as a disposable item or re-used as desired.
We vacationed in Charleston, South Carolina, this summer. Known for it’s notorious humidity, Garment Saver’s Makeup Guard was key to saving my makeup and hair. I was able to ready myself with enough product to hold my hair down and in place, keeping it from ballooning to the size of the Goodyear Blimp, and simply pulled a Garment Saver over my head and face when it was time to dress for our evenings out.
I found I could reuse the Garment Saver’s Makeup Guard even in the sultry summer heat and humidity. Garment Saver also makes a Clean Cape I’m going to invest in, as I use power makeup and it will help keep my undergarments and robe clean when I’m applying my mineral foundation.
The only cons I found were my earrings. While Garment Saver’s Makeup Guard is a fantastic tool, it doesn’t like my longer, dangly earrings. It also doesn’t work well with lip gloss or dark, heavy lipstick. Line and color your lips in with your lipliner pencil, then apply gloss or dark lipstick after you’ve taken the Makeup Guard off.
