Short Beauty Tip #1

Now that summer is in full swing, I realized I had been doing something in my daily routine that has tremendously helped my make up last all day


After applying sunscreen your face can look a bit shiny. I usually wait about 15 minutes for the sun screen to sink into my face so I am able to obtain the skin protection benefits before beginning my make up. I simply take an oil blotting sheet and blot off all the excess shine on my face that is residual product from the sunscreen.
Blot away the shine before applying your primer or foundation of choice, and it should help keep your make up on longer as there is less oil on your face for it to slide off.

  1. I have been doing this too, but to be honest it doesn't do much for me in terms of prolonging my foundation wear. I'm THAT oily :/

  2. Hi J! This is a good idea; sunscreens are really oily. That said, I'm not using sunscreen (really bad I know) since either that suncreen intself or the waterproofing gets my skin irritated. I've been thinking I might take another go and maybe try La Roche Anthelios too. I think I saw one that was purely mineral block!

  3. That's a great idea - we were actually tipped this in makeup classes - I do find the makeup doesn't slide that easily after blotting the excess residue of skin care :) Oh I missed your blog, Julie!

  4. I found sunscreen very oily and uncomfortable to the skin. I try to use a moisturizer with sun sunscreen to avoid putting another layer on skin.
