Quick Face Protection Look for Outdoor Activities

My chihuahua, Callie, and me at Falls Dam
Hey, Guys!! As you may know if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I am an avid hiker. I love to be outdoors. Most days I do my beauty work before I head out so I'm all dolled up for my walks. But on other days I just head right out. I still want to keep my face protected and also keep from scaring fellow hikers with my bare face.  :-)
For days like this I usually start as usual by washing my face, then using my under eye cream then the Aveeno protect+ hydrate lotion suncreen with SPF 50 as my moisturizer.

For my makeup I use either a CC or BB Cream with Sunscreen or as in this particular day L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder Foundation with SPF 18 in the shade 322 Sand Beige. This is a very thin foundation that dries to a powder finish. It is very thin and lightweight and is building. You won't get massive coverage but you can build it up.
For color, I used my LA Colors blush in Naturale for Bronzer and also in the crease of my eyes.
I also used a black mascara. I recommend a waterproof if you plan on sweating.
For lips, I used my Almay Color+ Care lipgloss in Apple a Day. I supplemented this throughout the day with my Mary Kay Sun Care Lip Protector with SPF 15.

It is imperative to keep your face protected with Sunscreen even on cloudy days. You also want to protect your lips and eyes. Don't forget the sunscreen on your eyelids and sunglasses to protect your peepers. Your retinas can sunburn. Wear sunglasses.

I hope this is helpful for you and you've got ideas for any outdoor activities' protection and looks.
Enjoy and have a great day!
