Latisse is an FDA-approved treatment to help grow eyelashes for people with inadequate or not enough lashes. Latisse comes in a small liquid dropper bottle and applicator brushes. Once a day the liquid is “painted” on the upper eyelid and over 12 weeks of use, visible results can be seen. Pair this with your favorite mascara and your lashes might be mistaken for falsies.
COLORESCIENCE SUNSCREEN MAKEUP
It’s sunscreen, it’s makeup, all in one. The perfect answer to busy Arizonans’ concern for protecting our skin from the powerful desert sun. Formulated with 100% zinc and titanium, these protective formulations contain no chemicals but deliver high-performance UV protection.
Colorescience’s backbone product is the Sunforgettable SPF 50 Powder sunscreen. It’s the answer to touching up your sun protection all day. What is so amazing about Colorescience is the details such as 35 seals of approval from the Skin Cancer Foundation. They put only the best ingredients into their growing line of sun protection products and give consumers an alternate way of applying and reapplying sunscreen to protect themselves from sun damage while letting natural skin shine through. With the main sun protection ingredients being high percentages of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, these powder sunscreens provide 80 minutes of water and sweat resistant sun protection from the moment it is applied. Also being a powder with a built-in brush applicator, re-applying your sunscreen is no longer a wet greasy mess, just “feather-dust” yourself and go. Our favorite products from Colorescience are below.
SUNFORGETTABLE SPF 50 POWDER SUNSCREEN
This self-dispensing powder sunscreen is perfect for everyone! Unlike lotions, this powder is easy to continue applying all day, which is imperative in Arizona. Broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection comes in several shades but goes on quite sheer. It’s available in a matte or shimmer finish, with just a hint of color. The powder is safe for children and can be used by men and women alike in addition to traditional sunscreens. Because it is mineral based, it can withstand extreme heat and cold so it can even be left in the car for convenience, making all day touch-ups a piece of cake!
EVEN UP CLINICAL PIGMENT PERFECTOR SPF 50
A triple-duty product that instantly evens skin tone, brightens discoloration and provides an SPF 50 protection. This can be used alone or under makeup for a flawless look.
SKIN CALMING FACE PRIMER SPF 20
Our favorite primer for sensitive and post-treatment skin. It soothes irritation and protects at the same time. The golden shade helps to neutralize redness as well. Perfect for after laser or other skin treatments and great for creating a smooth surface for makeup and powders.
