Summer Beauty Advice! 5 tips to stand by this Summer

Summertime is a GREAT season, that we ALL look forward to! Kids are out of school, pools are open, and there is something about the smell of hotdogs roasting on an open fire that just makes us feel so cozy inside~

Even though WE may love Summertime, our skin may not :/ Here are some tips to staying fresh and beautiful in the hot summer heat~

If you have any tips & tricks YOU would like to add, please comment with them in the comments section :)


Bonne Bell Lip Smackers Fruit Flavored Lip Balm, Skittles, 16-Count Party PackAny good chapstick, or lip balm should be in your beach bag at all times! Look for ones that sport a HIGH SPF. 

Believe it or not, our lips can BURN, and it hurts when they burn.. (been there) lol.... Also, your lips will look nice and shiny, and in some cases TASTE GOOD, if you happen to find Summer love XOXOXOXO ;)

Beauty Tip #2: Tinted Moisturizer with SPF!!!
Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 Ivory 1

Moisturize that face, ladies!!!! I cannot stress how important it is to protect your skin from HARMFUL UV RAYS!!!!! Any foundation, or moisturizer with SPF is a must have makeup item!!

I, personally am IN LOVE with Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20. It provides just enough coverage, combined with a high enough SPF to keep your delicate face protected, but you can STILL get a little sun on your face. MOST tinted moisturizers are waterproof as well!

Beauty Tip #3: Waterproof Mascara

Maybelline The Falsies Volum'Express Waterproof Mascara - Very Black Maybelline The Falsies Volum'Express Waterproof Mascara - Very Black is an awesome find!!! Number one, it WON'T SLIDE OFF while your on the slip n slide, lol. Number 2, it volumizes your lashes like nobody's business!! 

And, number 3, its CHEAP! You can find it at most drugstores!

Beauty tip #5: ALWAYS, wash your hair after you swim!! BUT, slow down on the blow dryer during the summer!

Treat your locks with respect! They've been good to you!! Always, always, wash your hair after you swim. Chlorine causes awful damage, and even discoloration if you don't wash it out! (I had my hair turn green once... true story lol). 

Also, kind of back off of using the blow dryer every time you wash your hair. Your hair is getting ENOUGH heat from the sun, and combined with added heat from the blow dryer can cause unwanted split ends, and dryness. Besides, go sit out in the sun (wearing your SPF, of course), and let your hair dry naturally!!

QUICK TIP..... if you want beachy waves, when you get out of the shower towel dry your hair, and get most of the water out... put a little bit of hair gel in it, and brush your hair. THEN, flip your head upside down, and scrunch your hair with your fingers. Then, just let it dry naturally, or in the sun!!

These are just a FEW of the MANY Summer tips! I will add more later!
