Intermission

Been in south for a while now - skin is peeling off on the cheeks. I look like a bloody raccoon because of the sunglasses, skin around the eyes is still flawlessly white.
I tell you - LA sun beats the hell out of MMU. Get some proper sunscreen of SPF 50 if you can get it. The downside is they stick all sorts of nasty goo in those sunscreens... petrochemicals topped up with assorted preservatives. They get you coming and going... the icky feeling of vaseline on my face - eeeeeeek.

Btw - LA is not as hot as I imagined. San Francisco was cold and windy as hell but the Sun is powerful enough to burn you through the windshield.

Cali is GREAT. Everything is blooming. And I mean everything.... from succulents to trees, jacarandas are just coming in bloom. Hills, mountains, ocean... a wonderful place. Reminds me alot of the Mediterranean. Mexican food is a genuine disappointment (potatoes, beans, greasy meat.... eeeeek) but Vietnamese pho and Thai fresh springrolls were ok.

Lahe!

Endal just paari nädalapärast minek ees.
Alumises postis on silmad ülikihvtid. Jätka samas vaimus!

P.S. Mida sa peitepuudrina kasutad? Olen üsna sama valge nahaga ja EDM-i Intensive Fair on nahal oranzh.

Viimane paev tana siin... lahkumiskurbus :)
kuigi uudistes oli kirjas, et Eestiski 20 kraadi sel pyhapaeval.
Ma peitepuudrit eriti ei kasutagi - panen nendesse kohtadesse oma Fair neutralit selle intensive-retseptis. Ma luban, et ykskord opin ara ka peitepuudrite kasutamise, hetkel veel taitsa apu nende kohalt. :)

Kuidas Intensive'iga on, kas kuivatab rohkem kui Matte? Intensive on vist katvem, aga on neil veel mingi vahe?

Sellele on raske vastata - mul matte-asju eriti pole. Aga tõenäoliselt kuivatab rohkem. EDMi foorumist vähemalt olen nõnda aru saanud.
