If you’ve been across the news today you’ll know that Emma Watson controversially wore pants on the Golden Globes red carpet and that a heatwave is due to hit the east coast of Australia.
To spare you of insanely boring weather talk (because you’re about to hear ALL about it over the next few days) Channel 10’s Magdalena Roze has summed up everything you need to know in under 140 characters:

Heatwaves and beauty products have never been great friends, but you can avoid a complete makeup meltdown in 35-degree heat. Read on for 7 common hot weather beauty mistakes (and how to fix them).
1. Not wearing sunscreen.
I know, it’s sticky, sometimes gloopy and it doesn’t always mix well with your foundation but if you need any more inspiration to apply sunscreen on a daily basis, take a look at the picture below:
This is a photo from the New England Journal of Medicine, showing sun damaged skin on a 69-year-old man who drove a truck for 28 years – his “driving side” is dramatically aged compared to the other side.
2. Packing on the powder.
It’s tempting to combat oily, shiny skin by packing on stacks of powder but this mistake will only turn your makeup cakey and clog your pores.
The fix: Step away from the powder, step very far away. Instead go for an oil-free BB Cream like Garnier’s or a long-lasting foundation like Revlon’s Colourstay or Nearly Naked foundations.
3. Not cleansing at night.
Summer is the time when we relax our beauty routines, skip the heavy eye makeup and heavy foundation in favour of tinted moisturisers and sheer bright lipsticks. One of the biggest skincare mistakes you can make is not cleansing your skin at night – this is especially true in summer to remove hard-to-shift SPF products.
