No Makeup Makeup

Balance-n-Brighten FoundationBalance-n-Brighten FoundationThere are different levels of applying makeup. Makeup for plenty of time, a little time, rush, and ultra rush. Ultra rush is the absolute bare minimum. Basically just putting a little layer of sun protection over my face to prevent UV damage. I break out when I wear most normal sunscreens that contain chemical sunscreens or zinc. So I use Titanium Dioxide sunscreen. Most makeup has some Titanium Dioxide in it. So makeup is usually the best I can do for sunscreen.

On an ultra rush day, a "no-makeup day", i.e. "sunscreen" only day, I dust on some light powder foundation over some concealer, and I wear lip balm with SPF. My favorite powder foundation is Laura Geller's Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation. It contains jojoba oil to keep the skin moisturized. Dimethicone to protect the skin. And green tea and gotu kola to help the skin stay youthful.

This powder foundation comes in a round compact, with a pretty swirled baked powder dome. I use a large powder brush to apply it.  It smooths out the skin and blurs some skin imperfections. It gives the skin a nice healthy glow without being shiny. Here is a picture of me with only some lip balm, under-eye concealer, and the Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Foundation. I use the color Golden Medium.
