It’s finally cooled down in Kansas City. In in the mid 80’s instead of the high 90’s. So much better! My kids have two more weeks of summer and
This week, I am loving products to help give me a summer glow. These include an illuminating primer, a sheer lipstick, a matte, loose eyes hadow and luxe hair styling products:
LORAC Light Source Illuminating 3-in-1 Primer ($35 USD) — Instantly bring luminosity and life to your face while preserving your makeup throughout the day with LORAC Los Angeles Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer. This paraben-free, high-pearl primer is infused with light diffusing, soft focus pigments for a silky smooth, luminous glow.
What I think: This is a gorgeous primer for the summer. I have it in Dusk, which is a bronzey primer and it also comes in Dawn, a pearly primer. Dusk is so pretty. I use it to prime my skin and it also gives it a glow underneath my makeup. My makeup also lasts long when I use it.
essence Sheer & Shine Lipstick ($1.49 USD) — For smudge-proof and defined lips, this creamy yet sheer formula goes on like a balm and deposits buildable color with fantastic shine.
What I think: This insanely inexpensive lipstick a very moisturizing. It is very sheer and balm-like, but does give a light color. It is perfect for the no-makeup look.
Shu Uemura Art of Hair Blow Dry Beautifiers ($39 each) — Go nude with Shu! The brand’s latest innovation: Blow Dry Beautifiers (available for thick and thin hair), are designed to help women with the ultimate at-home blow dry. Born from the popularity of cosmetic BB creams , these blow-dry balms bring natural, flawless and effortless looking radiance to the hair category.
What I think: Both of these are amazing, one is for thick and one for thin hair. They are used before blow drying to make hair soft and manageable. I use the thin hair one, and it gives my hair volume and bounce.
