Hello there! I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the last of summer weather [if its summer where you are]. Today’s post is all about the beauty products I use when I’m going to be in the sun all day either by the water [beach/pool] or just hanging out. I know its the end of August but with the current weather pattern [at least where I live] it’s warmer longer and some people live in sunny climates year round. Plus I believe that you should protect your skin year round. So on days even in the winter where I know I’ll be running errands or driving a lot, I use these products as well.
I focus more on SPF and hydration more than anything on these days with a sun kissed glow look. I have gone swimming with some of these products on and everything looked just like it did when I put it on when I got out of the water. In each product’s description I’ll let you know if I went in the water with it on.
So on to the post!
#1. SUPERGOOP! Bright-Eyed 100% Mineral Eye Cream SPF 40– This is a new product to me and so far I really like it. It’s a clean product made with good ingredients that help with fine lines and wrinkles, and protects against UV and blue light. I really appreciated the blue light because I have a screen in front of my face longer than I care to admit so I’ll take all the help I can get with blue light protection. It really does brighten up my under eye area and protects from the sun. I went to the beach and it didn’t run or come off in the 6 hours I was there. I was very impressed and will continue to use it.
#2. SUPERGOOP! Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40– This is also a new product to me but so far I’m loving it. I love, a healthy dewy, glowy look so anytime I see a product with the word GLOW in it, I’m hooked ha! I use this a the base product with SPF in it. I kinda layer them to really get a good SPF on my face. It evens out my skin tone and does give a healthy lit from within glow but very subtle. I like this product for those no make up days when you need SPF with a bit of a glow but don’t want a full face of makeup.
#3. LAWLESS Set The Stage Hydrating Primer Serum– This is a new product to me and an interesting one. It’s a multipurpose product that so far, has actually done what it says it is going to do. I use this a moisturizer and primer so it cuts down on the layers I have on my face before I put on my foundation. It really does a great job at hydrating the skin without feeling greasy. It has a cool consistency as well. It starts out as a gel and then as you press it into your skin it turns into an oil almost, but like I said not in a greasy or oily way. It’s another clean product with superfoods for you skin so I really appreciate that.
#4. Tula Face Filter Blurring & Moisturizing Primer– I have been using this product for a while and absolutely love it. It has a bit of a tint to it so it even and blurs your skin giving you an even canvas to either apply the next product in your routine [mine would be foundation] or you can add mascara and lip gloss for a “no make up make up day”. A little goes a long way too, you really don’t need a lot which I like as well for a couple of reasons. One because I don’t need a lot so it last longer. Two because I do use a lot of products so I don’t feel like I have a bunch of layers on my face. I always make sure I have back up in my drawer so I never run out. Highly recommend!
#5. IT COSMETICS CC+ Cream Illumination with SPF 50+ [Shade: Medium]+ LAWLESS Woke Up Like This Flawless Finish Foundation [Shade: Sonoran] I have been using both these products for a while and love them. The IT COSMETICS CC cream is awesome. It gives a great glow and is full coverage which I appreciate. It also has a great SPF and is great in the water. I wore it when I was snorkeling in St. Thomas and the Florida Keys and it stayed put beautifully. I’ve also worn it to the beach for years. The one downside to me personally is, it is not a clean product so I like to mix it with LAWLESS foundation to add some good ingredients and that extra glow. I love both products and highly recommend! Sephora sells both but I linked the Lawless foundation to Lawless Beauty because Sephora is out of my shade and several others.
#6. SUPERGOOP! Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 [Shade: Medium] I absolutely love this product! I use this to set my foundation and it blends into the skin beautifully and gives it a healthy glow rather than cover up the glow from the foundation that most powders do. I wear this all year long and it’s great for touch ups for when you need to touch up your face or need to reapply SPF. I did wear this product in the water when I went snorkeling and swimming in St. Thomas and the Florida Keys. Both times after I got out of the water my make up looked great and I didn’t have to do much to it when I went to dinner after both times. It comes in about 5 shades and I can not recommend this product enough.
#7. LAWLESS Lucid Skin Highlighter – This is the first clean highlighter that actually shows up on my face but doesn’t highlight the texture on my skin. It isn not a blinding high light, its more a lit within glow. It is buildable so if you want a more intense highlight you can achieve it, you just have to use more. Spraying the brush with setting spray will also help intensify the look as well.
#8. CHANEL Joues Contraste Powder Blush– [Shade: 55 In Love, mine is sold out] This is the closest color I could find to mine but the blush is beautiful and pigmented. It has a lot of color payoff plus a little shimmer to give a little sun kissed glow. There are some colors that don’t have the shimmer but I personally like it. I believe I went snorkeling in the Florida Keys with this on and it didn’t budge. I have my eye on a couple more colors.
#9. LAWLESS The Little One Eyeshadow Palette– I love this palette for a couple of reasons. One is a neutral lovers dream! I like the texture of the eyeshadows and they blend well. I love this palette because when it cuts down on decisions of what kind of eye look I will do for the day. I find that when a palette has a lot of choices sometimes I’m overwhelmed because there’s so many options that it takes forever to pick one. With this one its pretty much just a neutral. bronze look and that is exactly what I go for on the days I’m going to be in the sun all day.
#10. ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara– The brush on this mascara is a dream! I don’t know how they did it but it makes your lashes longer and separates them so they are fuller. It’s a magic brush. The mascara is great too. It’s clean and makes your lashes, darker, longer and fuller. It comes in a mini as well so its great for traveling. I highly recommend!
# 11. FARSÁLI Rose Gold 24K Skin Mist– I love this product! I believe this is my 4th bottle of it. I didn’t think I would like it as much as I do to be honest. I must admit- MAC’s Fix+ spray was my favorite for years. I used it to set my face and to intensify my eye shadows or highlighter. I really didn’t think I’d find one that I like better. But here we are ha! This is a clean product, that smells good and is good for a lot of things. You can use it before you start your skin care/ beauty routine or whenever you need some some extra hydration, you can use it to set your face and use it to intensify eyeshadows, blushes and highlighters. I love how it just melts into the skin when I set my whole face with it. I can’t recommend this enough!
Otay, thats it! I hope this was helpful for finding some awesome products for those long fun days in the sun. If you use any of these or use others, let me know in the comments below. You can also follow along on Instagram @ Jennniferlynn11 and Pinterest @ Jennniferlynn11.
