It’s hot, hot, hot!!!! A broken record I am but it’s so hot even that doesn’t describe the furnace in which I live. Summer months here can be brutal. But getting ready for the day??? From a steamy shower to blow drying then hot curl ironing (all instruments of satan) and then done! Except for the makeup now dripping down my face. Vegas for all your sparkle you make me shine in exactly the opposite way I want!
I run A LOT of errands. Driving around, getting in and out and then in and out, makes me an intimate enemy of this summer heat. I’ve learned to be prepared! I’ve become a proponent of the “less makeup is better” in the summer. And less when I’m in and out. No sense, girls, to waste precious makeup.
You know what I love? Walgreens. There’s one on every corner it seems which makes it comfortable and old towny like. They always seem to have the latest and greatest and every now and then something unique. If you are a Balance Rewards Member, the sweet little discount makes the wait for your prescription worth the extra minutes so you can shop for more nail polish!
My summer face in 5 minutes!
Depending on my time or mood I may or may not use a tinted moisturizer.
I swipe my eyelids with a bone/vanilla/bare shadow to open up my eyes and add a little light. I use Almay’s eyeliner to draw a thin line just to outline the top of my eye. I love Almay because my eye lids are easily irritated. Almay is mild enough for all day wear!
Next – Mascara
I am a sucker for ads, so when I saw the commercial for this Pumped Up Mascara by Maybelline, I went for it. More so for the big fat brush. I LOVE big brushes, the bigger the better! Maybelline did not fail me. It doesn’t clump or flake and has currently replaced my Maybelline Falsies Mascara!
Then my favorite lips: Revlon. I think I own about 20 Revlon lip colors. They are wonderfully made. What I love about them is their lip stains. Swipe a bit on your lips before you walk out the door. After your bagel and drink the color is still there. It slowly fades, but keeps your lips kissed with color!
It is just the right amount of pink!
I love second day curls, but what I appreciate even more is a hairspray that doesn’t make your hair crunchy and sticky. Mark Hill Fabulous Spray is simple and great. No fuss, no muss. I also can’t help but love the cute print on the bottle!
If you know me, you know my slight obsession with nail color. The perfect summer color is by essie called In the Cab-Ana. See this perfect summer blue?
It’s nice to have good products that last me throughout the day. At night, when it’s much cooler, I can put on the makeup I didn’t have to lose during the day!
All ready for work!
