This post would be applicable to any where in Nigeria or any place as hot as Nigeria .. The heat is real…,
Lagos is not for the faint hearted.
I’m about to make a joke about hell and Nigeria but …
I digress.
This is a list of some of the things you might need to stay fabulous in spite of the heat.
1.Hats, visors,Face caps: anything that can cover at least your face from the sun and isn’t an umbrella, because I’m Nigerian and I’m accustomed to umbrellas used only when its raining.
Luckily hats  are on trend  and are super stylish

2.Sunglasses:
I think its impossible to live here and not own a pair , they are very essential.
An added bonus is that they are the ultimate cool kid accessory. Buy a fun and quirky one or go for classy and cool.

3.Sunscreen:
I know this is essential but I don’t use them much, because they make me get hot and sweaty, but if your skin is important to you, buy some.

4.Primers:
How are you going to be fabulous and flawless if your make up has no staying power, invest in great primers.. I’m still on the hunt for one that would keep my face matte all day(if that’s actually possible, suggestions anyone? ), I’m currently using a zaron primer and its manageable.
Add a good oil free matte foundation and you should be fine.

5.Oil blotting sheets:
I’m in awe of whoever invented oil blotting sheets because they are perfect, I’m yet to meet an oil blotter that I don’t like. But also have regular tissue paper and /or a handkerchief but who has time to be washing handkerchief everyday.

Other things you’d probably need are a bottle of water or an air conditioned car but this current lack of fuel might not allow such greatness. Lol!
And don’t worry Lagos heat really isn’t that bad, I haven’t heard of anybody dying from the heat here yet or has that happened?

What other things do you think should be added to this list ? Please share in the comment section.
