Makeup Wars: My Favorite Sunscreen.

It is that time of year when sunscreen on the daily is a MUST. While I wear it on my face and neck year round, I will admit I am not so good about using it on my body all day, everyday. I am much better about it in the summer when I do use it everyday. I simply use it in place of daily lotion after I shower in the morning. Easy.

I recently posted about 10 great sunscreens that work really well for me. Out of all of those, I do have a favorite. I used it last summer after I initially received a sample of it, and I just bought two tubes to start of this summer. My favorite sunscreen? L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ Lotion.

My favorite sunscreen: L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ Lotion

L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun is a great line of sunscreen products for both face and body and L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun SPF 50+ Lotion is perfect for me. It offers a high SPF of 50 that lasts on me all day for everyday use. Of course, if I am at the beach or pool, I do reapply it every few hours. That is not

12 Best Bronzers to Fake a Tan.

Yay for the long weekend coming up. With Memorial Day upon us and it being the unofficial start to summer, it is time to start thinking bronzers for faking that summer glow. Just a little bit of bronzer can do wonders for warming up your face and bringing a bronzed look to it.

Best Bronzers

Bronzer is really easy to use and the best part is that you can control how much you apply it too. If you want to just look a bit more warm, dust it on your cheeks lightly. If you want to look like the sun kissed your face, apply it with a brush where the sun would hit you - cheekbones, nose, center of forehead and your chin. If you want to look like you have a great tan, dust bronzer on like you would a powder - all over your face.

I have talked about bronzers a lot before. Last summer I even categorized them into my Favorite Drugstore Bronzers and my Favorite Luxury Bronzers. This list of bronzers are either bronzers that I continually use or have just discovered but have already become part of my bronzer rotation. You will notice that some were on my favorites list too. Think of this as my overall favorite bronzer list, updated for 2013.

A Different Nail Enamel from Clinique.

Did you know that you can be sensitive to nail polish? I am not talking the paint or fumes, I am talking a very serious skin sensitivity to nail polish, and it is not around or even near the nails. The most common place to be sensitive to nail polish is the eyes. I never even realized this until I read that nail enamel can cause irritation and even contact dermatitis on the the skin around the eyes. If your upper or lower eye lids ever get red or swollen, it is probably due to your nail polish. Yes! I was just as shocked. Knowing that on average we touch our eyes about 200 times a day, it makes total sense.

As an allergy tested and 100% fragrance free cosmetic brand, Clinique scientists challenged themselves to develop a nail enamel formulated to minimize unwanted reactions to the nails, and skin and eyes. It took over six years to develop, bit they created on and it is a first in the nail polish industry. Meet Clinique A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins.

The formula is not only proven to be safe on women with both sensitive skin and
