Summer is here at long last, which means steamy hot days outside and chilled air conditioning inside, sea water thrashing your hair, humidity making it frizzy, pool parties and beach parties to look fabulous for – so many beauty equations to have to figure out a plan for!
I’ve made a Summer Survival Checklist with 9 of my favorite items to take you effortlessly through the hot months and keep you looking gorgeous no matter how high the mercury rises.
It’s Skin Facial Solution Powder Mist is perfect for those days where humidity has you feeling slimy, when you have excess oil or when you are getting breakouts from summertime oily/greasy skin. Keep one in your handbag or your desk drawer and spritz as needed to soak up oils, clear up breakouts and keep you looking fresh.
Madison Reed Tame I recently found this company
(Madison Reed). They are a salon quality home hair color company, that also has some fabulous shampoo and styling products. They even have color specialists that consult with you and help you choose what you need.(click here).
This product, Tame, keeps the frizzies at bay, helps to style summer hair that’s getting fried by surf, sun and chlorine and keeps your frazzled flyaway hair looking groomed, tamed and glossy. It also gives your hair some UV protection, which is an extra bonus for those with color treated hair!
Nars The Multiple In South Beach is perfect for summer bronzing with a glow. Powder bronzers can sit on the surface of the skin and look artificial, especially on days where you’re not wearing a full face of foundation. The Multiple in South Beach is a gorgeous shade of bronze that you can blend into your skin with your fingers, a beauty blender or a duo fiber brush for a natural look with a healthy, glowing finish. You can even add it over your makeup if you want to juice your look up before leaving work.
Tildon Metallic Floppy Straw Hat at Nordstrom I love big, floppy straw hats that shelter your face and neck, but also look chic and stylish. Nordstrom has a wonderful selection of sun hats to choose from.
Prada Baroque 55mm Round Sunglasses. Let your sunglasses be a statement piece, making even the most simple outfit look chic.
Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist keeps your skin fresh, dewy and hydrated either on it’s own or under moisturizer. In dry climates or when traveling it gives your skin a super boost, on days where its too hot or humid to pile on moisturizer you can use Dewy Skin Mist on its own. Love it.
You need two good lip colors for summer. One super saturated bold shade in a slightly matte finish, to offset dewy skin and make you look polished when you’re dressing up or making a statement, such as Temptu Color True Lipstick in Pink Hype and one lipgloss with a pop of color. I love Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Lip Laquer in Portobello Girl
Madison Reed Semi Permanent Gloss comes in a variety of shades and lets you brighten hair color that is fading from sun, swimming and beachtime as well as giving your hair a beautiful glossy shine.
