My recommendations for Summer Make Up add ons to help keep the shiny face look at bay. Seriously, these products have stood the test of hours in the sun and I couldn't speak more highly of them. Here's my routine:
After my morning Cleansing Routine, I will apply Sunscreen to my face, neck, and decolletage. Our sunscreens come in several options, including Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer (SPF 20). I will apply my Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation, which gives me build able coverage, evens my skin tone, and helps reduce appearance of lines with sodium hyaluronate. Beautycounter's Mattifying Powder works brilliantly. It's a translucent powder that instantly smooths, finishes, and sets your makeup while erasing shine. This is one of my all time favorite cannot live without products. Use in your T zone or all over, like me! After completing any other cosmetic touches, I will spritz my entire face with Beautycounter+ Balancing Facial Mist. This cherry on top is infused with charcoal and kaolin clay to absorb excess oil and manage it throughout the day. An absolute winner. These are my go to products for summer and I promise you'll fall in love too when you add them to your routine.
I can confidently say that I'm probably one of the least qualified people to do this, let alone succeed. Why? You ask. First of all, I'm an introvert and completely awkward around people (add to that the fact that I have a terrible memory and can't recall many people/events from years back. Seriously, I suck). Second, I have a pretty small circle - my family isn't large, and the number of people I can call friends, I could count on (a little more than) one hand. Third, I have a background in Early Childhood Education, not sales or marketing. Why am I sharing this with you? Well...because I've found something that has surprised me, something that has filled my life with purpose, joy, confidence, vision, and that thing I've found is available to you too.
