5 Beauty Products To Try This Summer

Summer is basically here! It is time to pull out your shorts and your sunscreen. As fun as the sun may be, I know a thing or two about how bad makeup can be in the summer. I worked in the direct heat for over 5 summers and as a makeup enthusiast, I had to learn how to not look like a melting cake every day.

Foundation: My favorite summer foundation is It Cosmetics CC Cream with SPF 50+. This is a personal must have for the summer. I originally tried it over spring break this year and I loved how it stayed on all day and didn’t look cakey in the sun. It is a Full Coverage Color Correcting Cream, Anti-Aging serum, plus Broad Spectrum Physical Only SPF 50+ all in one!

Mascara: Maybelline New York Great Lash Waterproof MascaraThis Mascara works wonders and it is only $6 at your local pharmacy or Target/Walmart. Not only is it waterproof, but it gives you fuller lashes without that clumpiness in other mascaras. It goes on so smoothly and is smudge resistant. This is one product that has stood the test of time.

Blush: It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush. Okay, so I am a little obsessed with It Cosmetics! This blush is just beautiful and gives you that summer glow every girl needs. It is perfect for all skin tones!

Lips: Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Color Balm This chubby stick gives you the perfect color with the right amount of moisture. These sheers bloom on contact to bring out your lips’ natural tone. This is a must have for those summer days where you don’t want to go all the way out with the lips.

Face: It Cosmetics You Sculpted  This contouring pallet made contouring so much easier and you can use it anywhere on your body. It was developed with plastic surgeons to mimic real facial contouring and provide a foolproof alternative to fillers. How cool is that? The shades are absolutely beautiful!

Spring Break Survival Kit: What To Pack

Spring Break plans right around the corner? Pack up your bags and get ready to head out with the ultimate beauty and fashion survival kit!

One problem that I always have is that I tend to over pack. Clearly I don’t need my entire wardrobe for a week in the sun, but I always rather be safe than sorry. This year I’ve decided to try something a little different and prep my outfits before so that I don’t have to overthink what the wear or overpack. We’ve got you covered from head to toe (and everything in between) with the warm weather essentials you need for skin that’s soft, smooth and glowing all vacation long! Check out my Spring Break Packing List Below!

image001

1)       KORRES Yoghurt Nourishing Fluid Veil Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30: Have fun in the sun with this ultra-sheer yet nourishing fluid that provides daily broad-spectrum UV coverage while wearing beautifully under makeup. This ultra-lightweight fluid instantly disappears into skin providing broad-spectrum UV protection and deep nourishment. Yogurt, rich in skin-repairing proteins, helps keep skin nourished and protected from the sun’s harmful rays while a blend of rice and camapu extract offers deep hydration and calming properties to soothe skin during sun exposure. Provitamin B5 helps reduce inflammation and supports natural cell regeneration while jojoba oil seals in moisture—leaving skin soft and smooth. ($35; Sephora.com)

2)       Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Roller-Ball Fragrance Collection: Travel Friendly. Purse Friendly. Skin Friendly. This is the perfect for fragrance on the go. Their collection of all-natural fragrances is luxurious and addictive. Each fragrance starts with a warm base of Madagascar vanilla and layers on a unique blend of pure essential oils for an exquisite expression of nature that capture a mood, a memory or a moment in time. Hailed as the World’s First Healthy Fragrance, organic sugar cane alcohol is infused with skin saving antioxidants for a modern twist on the classic art of perfumery. ($19; Lavanila.com)

3)       PediSpa by Look Beauty Gentle Exfoliating Foot Mask: Show off sandal ready feet thanks to this non-traditional masque that contains a foot exfoliate plus treatment filled in a pair of wearable socks. Key ingredients like chamomile and natural botanical fruit extracts help control callus build-up for visibly smooth feet within two weeks. ($9.99 for one complete pair; Exclusively at Target Stores in the Foot Care Aisle and Target.com)

4)       Bioré Baking Soda Pore Cleanser: Wash you face day and night for a complexion that glows all vacation long with this daily liquid cleanser that gives you a deep exfoliating clean without being rough on dry spots. Ideal for combination skin, this oil-free formula contains cleansing ingredients that excavate grime and oil from pores. At the same time, the formula gently smooths away dead cells. You end up with skin that’s fresh, silky-soft and luminous. ($7.99; Drug and mass merchants)

5)       Ban Roll-On Deodorant: Don’t worry about embarrassing sweat while you’re in the sun! Traditional antiperspirant/deodorants merely mask odors and reduce odor-causing sweat in general, while Ban’s breakthrough technology specifically targets and virtually eliminates odor that other antiperspirant/deodorants may leave behind. Ban Roll-On Deodorant glides on easily with a formula that provides an outstanding 24 hours of invisible protection against odor wetness. ($4.99, Drug and Mass Retailers)

6)       Curél Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray: Instantly relieve dry, irritated skin with this non-medicated, moisturizing spray with cooling hydration. Uniquely soothing, this formula delivers a mix of light yet potent hydrators — including a proprietary ceramide complex, allantoin and panthenol — to ease parched, itchy skin right where you need it. The Proprietary Cooling Complex feels soothing like a cold compress, lending you instant relief. ($8.99; Drug and mass merchants)
