SUN-SATIONAL LOOKS WITH­OUT THE DAN­GER

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - STYLE - ——— Na­dine Kam, Star-Ad­ver­tiser

May is Skin Cancer De­tec­tion and Preven­tion Month, a good time to con­sider new prod­ucts that de­liver sun pro­tec­tion or help achieve that sun-kissed glow while stay­ing in­doors:

>> Save your lips from burn­ing with Sun­tegrity Lip C.P.R., an SPF-30 lip color with zinc ox­ide, kon­jac root and lipids to re­duce the ap­pear­ance of fine lines, plus a hint of ste­via for sweet­ness. Avail­able at or­ganic beauty spe­cial­ist Green Spa Hawaii at the dis­counted price of $25.20 (usu­ally $28) in May. The spa is at 1441 Ka­pi­olani Blvd., Suite 1401. >> “Oth­er­worldly” is how Al­lure mag­a­zine de­scribed mod­els wear­ing Marc Ja­cobs Dew Drops Coco- nut Gel High­lighter ($44), which de­liv­ers a golden sheen with zero sun ex­po­sure. A few drops of this il­lu­minizer mixed with foun­da­tion and primer is rec­om­mended, but I pre­fer di­rect ap­pli­ca­tion for more pre­cise place­ment. For­mu­lated with co­conut wa­ter and vi­ta­min B5 to help hy­drate and nour­ish skin, it’s one of five prod­ucts from the de­signer’s 2017 Co­conut Glow col­lec­tion, avail­able at Sephora, Neiman Mar­cus and Mar­cJa­cob­sBeauty.com.

>> Sun­screens tend to be heavy, sticky and smelly, in ad­di­tion to leav­ing a ghostly white film. Aus­tralian Gold de­liv­ers a bet­ter op­tion with a new Botan­i­cal Line of min­eral sun­screens, in­clud­ing a fra­grance-free SPF-50 Tinted Face Min­eral Lo­tion that wears like a tinted mois­tur­izer for every­day use. The light­weight for­mula is ab­sorbed quickly, leaves no residue and

con­tains an­tiox­i­dant in­gre­di­ents such as eu­ca­lyp­tus, kakadu plum and red al­gae, in ad­di­tion to ac­tive min­eral in­gre­di­ents ti­ta­nium diox­ide and zinc ox­ide that block sun ex­po­sure. Prices range from about $12.99 to $14.99 at Longs/CVS stores. >> MAC makeup artist Vic­tor Cem­bellin was in town re­cently to show­case In­sta­gram-wor­thy beauty, and at the top of his prod­uct list was MAC Strobe Cream in Goldlite ($33) to wear un­der foun­da­tion with con­tour­ing prod­ucts. “Ex­treme high­light­ing is an In­sta­gram fa­vorite be­cause of the way it il­lu­mi­nates the face to cre­ate a di­men­sional ef­fect,” he said. The look can be worn with min­i­mal color prod­ucts for a nat­u­ral, beachy look or amped up for evening.

>> What do peo­ple in the rainy North­west know about sunny beauty? Ap­par­ently, at Port­land-based Paci­fica, they know how to achieve a glow with­out the burn, via light­weight, 100 per­cent ve­gan prod­ucts. This is a line for women who say they don’t like makeup. Paci­fica’s pow­ders, eye shadow pal­ettes and lip­sticks of­fer sheer, nat­u­ral-look­ing color. A trio of Ra­di­ant Shim­mer Co­conut Multiples of­fers cream color for eyes, cheeks and lips for min­i­mal­ist beauty that doesn’t look forced. It’s $14 at Tar­get or Ce­les­tial Nat­u­ral Foods, 66-443 Kame­hameha High­way in Haleiwa.
