in summer I tend to use less make-up than in other seasons. I feel like when you’ve got a tan your skin looks healthier and just doesn’t need a lot to look good. so I was very happy when a few weeks ago Daylong came in contact with me and wanted me to test their new face fluids with SPF +50.
my skin is >very< sensitive in the sun, so I always used a moisturizer with SPF 30 or even better 50 to be sure not to get sunburnt. the BB cream from Daylong is exactly what I’ve been waiting for. it gives you the protection you need and feels very light but still gives you a bit of a coverage.
personally I don’t really like the smell of it but as I set it with the Gerda Spillmann powder that smells incredibly good (blogpost about this product coming soon) I don’t really mind this. after applying my Collection concealer I set it with the powder because I feel quite a bit shiny after using the face fluid – but with the powder it’s perfectly fine and lasts the whole day long.
I love to just bronze my face with my Benefit Hoola Bronzer whereever the sun would naturally touch me. this is the only product I use more in summer than I do in winter times. after bronzing my face I only use a tiny bit of blush and highlighter > at the moment I -really- enjoy the Urban Decay Backtalk palette, it gives me the nicest peachy glow and I blimin love peachy tones in summer.
put on some mascara and a nude lip shade and you’re done! to be honest mascarawise I’m in a bit of a struggle at the moment. because I can’t really find one that I like 100%. I do like the Benefit “they’re real” and the Maybelline “total temptation” but they’re just not exactly what I’m looking for. I ordered a variety of different ones just when I wrote this blogpost so maybe I’m gonna write about them soon.
