Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start!
In today’s post, I’m going to share with you my favorite products and beauty routines for the summer!
1. Get your brows and lashes tinted
No one wants to apply a brow pencil or heavy mascara if you are at the beach or by the pool in the hot sun! See your Aesthetician and get your brows tinted so that you don’t have to fill them in. Lash tinting can also make your eyes pop without makeup! It’s one of my secret weapons for summer beauty!
2. Let your hair air dry
Air dry your hair and apply a really great leave-in conditioner. Your locks will thank you- especially if you are in the sun, which can be very drying to hair! Some of my favorite leave-ins are:
This stuff smells AMAZING. You will be the envy of all mermaids at the beach. Trust me.
Also- pair it with the Curly Wurly Shampoo- my hair is naturally very wavy when I let it air dry so I love using this shampoo with the R &B. It’s perfect for beach days because it gives your hair a little more texture, and as I said before the scent is incredible!
Infused with hair strengthening and nutrient rich ingredients, this air-dry cream helps promote hair growth as well as fights frizz for muggy days!
3. Shower with Salt
I have ALWAYS been obsessed with Origins line of sea-salt scrubs and shower products. I love the scent, and also the summertime is a great time to exfoliate dry winter skin. Two of my favorite products from the line are:
4. Wear a Beach scent
This stuff smells like sunscreen and sunshine and the salty air. The perfect warm weather scent. Beach by Bobbi Brown
5. Lighten up on the Foundation
I’ve recently discovered this line from my newfound “Instafriend” Jamie O’Banion (stay tuned for a blog post all about her and her line!)- I LOVE this sunscreen because it works as a primer, SPF, tinted moisturizer and hydrator all in one!
6. Simplify your makeup
One of my favorite things to do in summer weather is keep it really simple- a bold lip and a shimmery eye with just one color on the eye. Charlotte Tilbury has absolutely nailed it this year by pairing her new Matte Revolution Luminous Matte Lipstick in The Queen with Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadow in Marie Antoinette.
I’ll have these two on repeat all summer long…
7. Use a shimmery body lotion (after your SPF of course!)
Michael Kors– one of my go-to’s for a nice shimmery formula (and of course the scent is fab!)
8. Don’t forget to wear a hat!
Enjoy the sun (safely) by always wearing an SPF of at least 30 and re-applying every few hours- especially if you go into the water!
