Surf’s Up, Girls!
We just finished shooting our Summer Host Pick commercial which reminds me that summer will soon be here. I decided that there’s no better time than now for a beach beauty makeover! Here are some of my top picks for spring and summer that will have you looking and feeling like a Beach Goddess!
Let’s start with sunless tanning. Gone are the days of streaky, orange self tanning. Tan Towels are the best way I’ve found to exfoliate, moisturize and create a gorgeous bronzy tan. The Girl from Ippanema will have nothing on you!
Sun protection is the most important beauty advice I can give to anyone spending time in the sun. My favorite sunscreen is Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection. It’s light weight on your skin and will help keep your skin protected from the sun’s harmful rays. Speaking of sun protection, another must-have is a great sun hat! This adorable sun hat by Mary Norton will keep you cool and looking Sunsational!
Another way to look chic and protect your eyes is with a great pair of Robert Verdi Sunglasses! They offer 100% UV protection and come in an array of blooming colors! For the smartest eye protection, be sure to stock up on Andrew Lessman’s Ultimate Eye Support. The phytonutrients and antioxidants of the Mother Nature-given ingredients will help to protect the delicate tissues of the eye. Speaking of eyes, waterproof mascara is another necessity for warm-weather months! Be sure to try our Benefit Bad Gal mascara. It’s long-lasting and stays in place rain or shine!
Most of us find that our hair, nails, skin and lips need extra TLC when the summer heat sets in. For good warm-weather hair days, try Ouidad Sunshield Spray. It will help keep your hair in great condition and protect it from the drying effects of the sun. A pedicure is another summer must! I love Debra Lippman’s On the Beach duet. Whether you’re at the beach or by the pool, this beautiful hue will make your toes look like you’re ready to take a dip!
As the temps warm up I like to lighten my make up. Lancôme’s Bienfait Multi Vital Tinted Moisurizer has an SPF 30 and will provide even, natural-looking coverage with flawless results! For a perfect summer pout, be sure to try Elizabeth Arden’s Plump Perfect Lip Moisturizer with SPF 30. Mmmmmwaaa!
Another of my favorite summer beauty tips is to say, “No!” to unwanted hair with the NoNo! Remove that unwanted hair for a smooth, hair-free summer! For the perfect head-to-toe look for summer fun check out our Miracle Suit Cover Up. The belted front and pretty cap will add glamour and flair to your summer beach wardrobe. I love the Steven by Steve Madden Braidey beaded sandals for summer. They work perfectly with any swimwear or a pretty maxi dress, like our gorgeous Louise Roe Maxi in hot summer colors!
To add the perfect finishing touch to your summer look add this Colleen Lopez Mother of Pearl bib necklace and matching Mother of Pearl bracelet. The glow from the luminous mother of pearl will make you feel like a mermaid. Get ready to make a splash!
