I purposely went for a muted nude look with this outfit--I wanted pale. I expected pale. But when I looked at the photos, I thought to myself "Wow...PALE."
Honestly, I think that the paleness in these particular photos is mainly due to camera and lighting trickery (this isn't denial. I. Swear.) I admittedly am not known to spend much time outdoors though...although I do begrudgingly apply my separate SPF everyday anyways.
Wearing sunblock is not fun. I advocate it and insist upon it--but my reaction to putting it on my face everyday is definitely ughughugh. I previously was using a sunblock that started off well, but then our relationship went greasily awry. And so, the search continues.
Issa and I recently attended a Clarins event that centered around their re-formulated Double Serum, which I had actually been curious about for a while after reading a number of positive reports. Besides being a SPF advocate I'm also a big (and not at all begrudging) serum advocate. Hearing their serum gospel from Christopher Truffa was fantastic, but he had a gospel truth that even trumped their star serum. "The best thing you can put on your skin is SPF!" Of course. Of course it is.
