Hey kids, if you’re like me and burst into flames in the tiniest hint of sunlight, summertime can be very painful. And red. Today’s Makeup Monday is how I cover up my sunscreen fails.
This past weekend we spent the day on the river, and while I was militant about reapplying my SPF 50 throughout the day, my hairline and nose managed to burn pretty bad. So this morning after cleansing I turned to the best thing for any sunburn, Aloe Vera.
Slathering it on my nose and hairline, I turned to my most moisturizing primer, my Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm. It really is as good as the Youtuber’s say, y’all. Following that I jumped into the other Youtube/Instagram craze that took place earlier this year, color correcting (tutorial here).
I put the green color corrector all over the sunburns (and a few acne spots) to neutralize the redness, and then turned to my face makeup. To keep things light in the summer I’ve been sticking with CC+ creams and only applying foundation where I really need the coverage. Today I put my Urban Decay Naked Skin One and Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector, which I reviewed here, all over my face and went over my acne and sunburns with my L’Oreal Pro Matte Infallible Liquid Foundation and set it with a light dusting of my Maybelline Fit Me Powder Foundation.
You can stop here or go for a full face, the natural finish it gives looks fine either way. I opted to finish out the look with some gloss and light eye makeup to go about my day, here’s the finished result:
Thanks for hanging out, apply your sunscreen.
