Summer is the best time of year: warm sunshine, beach weather and summer parties. It’s time to break out of your shell and let loose! The 4th of July is officially on and I’ve got my beauty bag for the holiday weekend ready to stay glowing and showing!
GLOW. Skin is always in and I love a good highlighter. Celebrity make up artist Danessa Myricks Beauty has got it right with- I live for this! It’s the perfect shimmer/glow to mix in with your moisturizer or wear alone. I’ve even mixed a little with my body oil for an all-over glow. It’s a one and done with this.
PUCKER. A bright lipstick is a must and Khuraira Creme Lipstick in Diva is my current favorite. I love this buildable bright orange color with pink undertones. This is the perfect summer color that pops with brown skin.
CARE. Protecting my skin from the suns harsh rays are key, so I’ve been using La Roche Posay Anthelios AOX Daily SPF 50 Sunscreen serum for a while. It blends in sheer, leaves absolutely no white ashy residue and protects brown skin from harmful UV rays. Another sheer alternative is by Korres Yoghurt Nourishing Fluid Veil SPF 30 for $35.
WEAR. Anyone that knows me knows I wear hats often. Summer is no different! A big floppy hat is a “got-to” for the weekend. I love this one from for only $20 at Old Navy.
SWIM. Going away for the holiday weekend requires some time by the pool or beach. A bikini is a must. I always bring along a Jill Kelly Swim bikini. The reversible string bikini means I only need to bring one for the weekend to create different looks. Order yours at firstname.lastname@example.org.
