Today I want to share some of my favorite summer beauty products to help you stay beautiful in the heat.
The long days at the beach will leave your hair begging for moisture. After you shower be sure to apply my favorite hair treatment – Moroccanoil Treatment. It absorbs instantly to fill gaps in hair created by heat, styling and environmental damage.
As we treat our hair to pampering we should be doing the same to our face. Get on the coconut oil band wagon because it is here to stay. My favorite product for the face (and hair, skin, etc.) is Dr. Jackson’s Coconut Melt. This 100% organic formula melts on touch, hydrates and nourishes your skin and counters the formation of wrinkles thanks to its elasticizing properties
In the summer try to stay light on the foundation. The hot and humid days can cause heavy foundation to melt and form a cakey look on your face. Try Laura Mercier’s Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer for sheer but flawless coverage with an added SPF.
You will want to stick to neutral shades of eyeshadow during the day giving your eyes a pop of color and a nice glow. If you are going to splurge on a makeup item definitely consider making it an eyeshadow. The higher quality pigments and process in which they were developed will provide you hours of wear and true color payoff. Some of my favorites are MAC and Urban Decay’s Naked Palette.
The best way to apply these products is with a quality brush set. Having the right beauty tools will allow you to create a perfect canvas and make it easier for you to get the looks you want. Think of Picasso with a cheap paintbrush…I don’t think his work would have turned out quite the same. My favorite set is the Bobbi Brown Basic Brush Collection.
