This post has been a long time coming. A QUESTION I get frequently, one that slides into my DM’s is: HOW DO YOU APPLY SUNSCREEN WHEN YOU HAVE MAKEUP ON?
This is honestly a hard question for me to answer. For a while I did the whole sunscreen powder thing but I felt like my makeup was flaking off a bit. I’ve also done the old reapply sunscreen move on top of my make up. But that’s no fun- especially because it screws up my makeup. HOWEVER recently I discovered sunscreen MIST.
THAT’S RIGHT, MIST.
Doesn’t something about the word ‘mist’ make you feel whimsical & vibey? I love it. Anyway, moving right along. Let’s get into the whole mist thing, K?
This setting mist is ideal for touching up throughout the day- one that you can throw in your bag & GO. Of course I like to use sunscreen first ( not a mist ), then apply the makeup, & go. But later in the day around 2 pm- the mist is IDEAL. In fact, it’s perfect. You can even mist your neck, chest, shoulders- you know I go crazy & even do my arms.
Well sometimes. Not yesterday. Yesterday I was wearing driving gloves. But that’s a different story for a different day?
To break it down even further for you- let me set the scene. Here’s a quick breakdown:

I HOPE THIS POST WILL REMIND YOU ONCE AGAIN: to bring the sunscreen situation down. So many women cover their faces but forget their chest! Hands! Neck! Arms! Boobs! I am a big fan of applying sunscreen everywhere. Like I even went as far as tinting my car windows. If I get pulled over can I tell the officer I was actually being safe & protecting my skin? #GOALS.

DIVE DEEPER INTO SKIN:
In other news, I am doing a San Diego meet-up. All the info is on my latest Instagram but basically I am bringing a bunch of you to the MOVIES. We are going to see Fifty Shades Freed at Cinépolis in Del Mar. Rosé & popcorn included. Would love to see/meet some of you in the flesh. Speaking of flesh, that will be a theme I feel with Mr. Grey around? Ha.
I’m off to bed, wrapped in my favorite blanket, drinking lots of water because I had lymphatic drainage today ( by a TSC reader- what’s up Kathleen from SOLACE ). Which is just the best ever. Face is feeling tight which we love.
Hope you had a successful Wednesday.
