Weekend Face | Summer Edit

My base game is pretty much the same. Prepping with Nuxe Creme Fraiche (£16.50). This takes care of all the flakey bits in seconds without making it greasy. Sunscreen from Simple (£4.99). Bobbi Brown’s Skin Serum (£39)foundation goes on after. This is a SPF 40 with a light natural looking coverage. I’m skipping concealer and blending my foundation under the eyes as well.

They are one of my favorite formulation. Not too shiny, not too drying. This one is in the shade 771 Passionnée (£24).

Nuxe Huile ProdigieuseNuxe Huile Prodigieuse.jpgSally Hansen Airbrush legs (£9.99) in the shade light glow/01. I have scarring on my legs that I like to cover up and this does it well. This gives medium coverage while still looking like skin. It’s easier to blend and build up coverage with a tanning mitt, if you haven’t tried that already! Nuxe Huille Prodigieuse on top equals perfect pair of legs.

Another Addition to Good Basic Sunscreen

simple_sunscreenspf30.jpg simple_sunscreen.jpgIf you have read my sunscreens on rotation post, I mentioned Neutrogena Ultra Sheer, perfect on oily skin. Since my skin is dry now, I can’t use it. Not to forget, it’s near impossible to find in the UK. Simple SPF 30 moisture cream is spot on. It’s such an underrated product. I think this is a beautiful everyday sunscreen. It has no perfume or artificial color, has UVA/UVB filters, is easily available and priced at £4.99. And you can get it much cheaper during offers at Boots or Superdrug!

The only downside is, it does give you a faint white cast under some lights. So might not be great to be photographed in. In natural daylight, it’s invisible.
