Q: What sunscreens do you recommend/use? Thank you in advance for your help xo.

A:

For the face, I love Shisedo. It’s expensive and a little hard to find, but it’s the absolute best. My skin is very sensitive to sunscreens and it’s the only thing that doesn’t irritate it. For body, I like neutrogena dry touch. It’s not sticky and comes in a huge range of SPF.

Product love- NYX HD concealer.

I bought one of these bad boys in a pinch a while back and threw it in my purse. I never used it much but I found it the other day and holy cow, it is amazing. Super pigmented long lasting coverage without looking cakey? Sign me up. I immediately went to Ulta to stock up and at only 5 bucks a tube I got 3. One that is my skin tone (beige I believe) and a darker tone and a lighter tone to contour with. Such a great find!

Testing the new @kenraprofessional Dry Texture Spray and Texturizing Taffy today. They both smell delicious and give soft, touchable feel (not dry and starchy like most texture sprays).
