Nothing screams summer quite like profusely sweating in the beating down sun. Aren’t you tired of make up melting off your face, humidity frizz hair, and baking in the sun for that unattainable bronze? We hear you. Now introducing our cheat sheet that will keep you calm and cool this summer.
Did summer sneak up on your skin? If you want that summer ready glow but don’t want to damage your skin tanning this product is for you. St. Tropez is one of many self-tanning products out there, but has become my holy-grail product this year. I am featuring the express mouse (apply all over and wait 1-3 hours before showering depending on how dark you want to be) and the in shower gradual tanner (turn off water and apply all over, wait 3 min and then rinse). Now can confidently rock those cut offs
- Lighten up
Forget spending long hours and lots of cash in the salon. Sun-in is such an easy/cheap way to get natural looking highlights in your hair. Kylie (fellow creative intern) swears by sun-in and has only used it to reach her beautiful blonde shade. Meet your #hairgoals this summer.
- Beach Babe
Summer is the time to let your hair down! This product is the perfect was to keep the heat off your hair while still looking #fresh2death. I love using sea salt spray on wet or dry hair. The sea salt gives my locks just enough grit and texture while the Moroccan oil keeps them tamed.
- Coconut oil
I could go on and on about this product… Coconut oil is so universal and can be used a million different ways. This oil is great for moisturizing lips, face or body to keep them from getting dried out by the harsh sun. A better-kept secret about coconut oil is that it makes your lashes grow like crazy! Ditch the mascara and expensive eyelash growth products and go grab coconut oil at your local drug store!
- Stay put
This last item is the best way to save your makeup from that hot sun. This primer is a sheer champagne tinted gel that keeps your makeup put all day. If you’re a girl who wants to say goodbye to liquid foundation this summer, you can wear this on its own to get a soft glow. Don’t be intimidated by the shimmer in this primer, it is very fine and will leave you looking glowy and sun kissed.
