If I wasn’t testing something, then I would be using setting spray and a lighter base with no powder along my nose (sunglasses and foundation separation!). I tend to keep it lighter on makeup if I’m going to be outside a lot or doing a lot of errands where I have to go to one place, then another, and then another, etc. I would reach for more waterproof or extra long-wearing formulas for eyeliner, mascara, and the like for longer times outside. On a typical day, though, since I’m inside a lot I don’t make adjustments.

I think it’d be fun to go through what we used, purchased, resisted, and so forth each month, here are some questions:

  1. What were your favorites from the last month?
  2. What didn’t impress you?
  3. Did you return anything you purchase?
  4. Or successfully resist temptation?

I tend to reach for something with high SPF if I’m going to be outdoors for awhile regardless of the time of year, but here in Arizona, the sun is almost always blazing hot in the summer and I never, ever forget SPF or to add more from March through October. I’m pretty good about applying higher SPF if I’m going for a walk and the like throughout the year, though πŸ™‚ In the summer, I also keep a facial mist in the fridge for an instant cooldown!
