Good morning and good Friday!
One of the interesting things I’ve learned recently about liquid sunscreen is that you can reapply it directly on top of makeup and touch it up all day.
This is assuming you’ve already got a layer (or two) of paint underneath your normal face paint. Chances are you’re already applying sunscreen under your foundation, blush, etc. If you’re worried about reapplying your sunscreen in the middle of the day.
Oh, and that’s also assuming you’re not wearing super dark blush or a black smoky eye! It seems to work best when the colors are not too intense.
That said, here’s the gist:
- Texture is key. Liquid sunscreen with a gel-like consistency works best. Anything too thick or heavy will move stuff around. there are two to consider Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen And Bioray UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence,
- You want to pat, not rub. Use your fingers, a sponge (don’t get it wet, leave it dry) or a synthetic foundation brush to pat the sunscreen onto your skin. The patting reduces taking down the making. Keep patting until the sunscreen is completely absorbed. Wait a minute, then do another layer.
- Start with the non-colored areas first. If you’re using a sponge (leave it dry) or brush, start on parts of your face that haven’t had a ton of bright and intense color at first, such as your jaw, around your nose and mouth. And your forehead, so you’re not mixing too much color. Wait a minute or two for this, then finalize your blush and eyes.
If that sounds too different to you, you can always go the more traditional route with a loose powder sunscreen that comes with an attached brush. ColorScience makes a It is considered very good.
Build Those Pleasure Muscles, Day 12
Two simple things I’m thankful for today are 1) the Lenijs lip mask (it’s the best thing for dry lips, I swear), and 2) my friend, Kelly.
So, Kelly and I met through our kids. His daughter Kensley and Connor have been BFFs since preschool.
Not only is Kelly the easiest and coolest person to talk to, he’s also a real-life MacGyver!
Case in point: Yesterday I took Connor Claire to play at their house and as she was getting out of the car, she dropped her favorite water bottle, which then rolled onto the sidewalk and down the storm drain. I
I lost it forever, but Kelly saved the day by fishing it out of the gutter using a pool noodle, duct tape, and hooks.
Seriously, everyone needs a friend like him!
I hope you are well treated for the rest of this beautiful day. Your care!
