Even though you’re probably a sunscreen wiz, since I know you’ve already read our Sunscreen 101 series, sometimes over exposure occurs, and you’re left with reddened skin. What to do? Follow up with a cooling treatment with high aloe vera content.
Liz Earle Sun Shade Botanical Aftersun Gel ($23.50) is a very lightweight gel to help soothe skin that’s just seen too much sun and needs some cooling treatment. My boyfriend, who is much fairer than I, also burns easy compared to me (I don’t think I’ve ever had sunburn). I put this on his shoulders, and he was a happy camper. It has 92% hydrating organic aloe vera, which is a must-have in your beauty closet when it’s summer (if not year-round!). I sometimes use this on itchy or raw skin, and I find it gives me enough comfort and cooling to keep me from making it worse on myself.
- La Roche-Posay Athelios SX Daily Moisturizer with SPF15

Do you prefer buying online or going to the store? Why is that your preference?
I thought I’d keep it simple for today Took my boyfriend and his brother drunk mini-golfing (I’m allergic to alcohol, so I’m always DD!). Kind of fun?
What does everyone have planned for the weekend? I’m moving! Incredibly exciting, right? So not.
I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on inner half of lid, Charcoal Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease, Goldmine eyeshadow lightly on outer lid/middle of lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Urban Decay Stash 24/7 liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer on cheeks. I wore Fuschia Fix tinted lip conditioner with Take A Hint tendertone (LE) on lips.

CoverFX Natural FX ($37.00) is a water-based foundation that contains SPF 15 that was developed to be long-wearing. It is a light to medium coverage, highly blendable foundation that leaves behind a dewy, soft finish and evens out skintone. CoverFX has made this particular foundation more water resistant than other foundatinos on the market, which makes it great for summer and humid climates.
I found that it wore throughout the day with no smudging or melting, and I didn’t feel like I needed any touch-ups, either. I liked how blendable the foundation was, because it gave me plenty of time to buff it into my skin for flawless coverage. It is also great, because it is liquid enough that you can sheer it out for light coverage, but buildable enough that you can make it medium coverage, as well. The only real downside to this product is its price tag, which is a bit higher than the average foundation.
They have twenty shades to choose from, broken down into four series. The B series is for golden brown to ebony skin tones; the C series is for Caucasian skins with mostly pink undertones; E series is for Caucasian skins with both pink and yellow undertones; and the M series is ideal for those with yellow and olive undertones.
