The 4th of July weekend was all about outdoor barbecues and lounging outside with friends. So, what better reason to try out some new sunscreen!
During the hot summer months sunscreen is imperative. I have a few great sunscreens that I typically depend on, but I have been itching to experiment with the new sunscreen powders popping up on the market. This past weekend I used Bare Essentials SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen, and I adore it. The great thing is the convenience and portability of this product. It fits right into my purse, and was unbelievably easy to use for touch ups throughout the day. It has a micronized titanium dioxide base it protects against UVA/UVB rays and won’t clog your pores or create dreaded summer breakouts. This powder is void of parabens and sulfates, and is action packed with aloe vera, antioxidants, and lycii berry for skin benefiting goodness.
Another great plus was that the powder kept me shine free, and seemed to help prolong the wear of my makeup. It gives off a subtle glow, and comes in three different skin tones. What a great way to protect your skin and look great at the same time!
Makeup Artist Tip: Be sure to always keep the brush dry, and the cap tightly locked.
– Turn bottom to fully extend brush, then turn device upside down
– Tap downward onto skin until powder appears. Make sure brush is clicked all the way up to allow bareMinerals to flow
– Buff lightly in a circular motion
