Having the right summer beauty products can make or break you, lady! With brutal heat and humidity on most summer days, I need something that actually w-o-r-k-s. Most of my beauty products go through rigorous testing, as I have to do long photoshoots during all seasons. Here are a few that pass the test:
La Mer “the Perfecting Treatment”: A silky treatment that sweeps away dull surface cells, helps reduce visible redness, energizes the skin and lifts the look of discoloration, all while enhancing radiance. Great for anyone who wants to improve skin texture, tone and translucency. On days when you want to go makeup-free, blend a little with your SPF for a perfected, protected complexion. You can also customize your coverage by mixing The Perfecting Treatment with your favorite foundation.
Smashbox Waterproof Mascara: Everyone should switch over to good waterproof mascara during the summer months. Even if you are not planning on going to the beach or doing a lot of swimming, the humidity alone causes your mascara to clump and flake off. Here is a link to the Nordstrom “waterproof mascara” category.
Travel Size Mia Fit (Clarasonic): I need this in my life so badly!!! It is smaller and more lightweight than the traditional “Mia.” It comes with 2 speed settings, cleanser, brush head, and unique charger.
Clinique CC Spf 30 Cream: This must-have color-correcting formula smooths the complexion and creates an ultra-natural radiance. It instantly corrects a range of complexion concerns including dullness, sallowness, and redness. Perfect for wearing alone or under foundation and recommended for all skin types, the lightweight, oil-free cream moisturizes and protects with sunscreen, leaving the skin soft, fresh, and flawless. Also, it is SPF 30, which is much better for anti-aging than SPF-15.
Urban Decay, Beached Bronzer: Nail the golden goddess look every time with Beached Bronzer from Urban Decay. Dust this silky powder onto your face or all over your body for a beachy, sun-kissed look. Urban Decay’s finely milled, super-soft formula applies smoothly, doesn’t streak, and creates a radiant glow that locks into place. These universally flattering matte shades provide sheer, natural-looking coverage every time. Its HPP (Highlighter Performing Pigments) Technology is long-lasting and provides rich color with the perfect level of coverage.
Oribe Anti-Humidity Spray: I can’t even tell you how much I love this product!!! Living in the South, the humidity is non-stop, 100% during the summer and my hair POOFS! I use this before every photo shoot. It has a weightless/non-sticky formula and smells divine!
Thanks so Much for Reading!
