Summer is coming and that means it’s time to ramp up your SPF routine! While most of us are diligent about applying sunscreen in the morning every day we fail to reapply throughout the day. A great option for us gals that wear makeup is Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF30 Brush Perfectly Clear. This is a sunscreen in a translucent powder form that can be applied on top of your makeup! This makes the sheer thought of reapplication a snap! Simply dust on the sunscreen with the handy retractable brush and bam sun protection!

I know you probably have a million things in your makeup case. But do you have an eyeshadow primer? If the answer is no, then we strongly suggest that you get one! Why? Because if you have 600 different shadows and pigments in your makeup collection but don’t have a primer then chances are those eyeshadows are not living their ‘lives’ to the fullest.
An eyeshadow primer will set your eyeshadow and allow for pigments to become much more saturated and visible on the lid, therefore you’ll need less shadow, therefore… you’ll spend less time and less effort packing on the color! And what’s more; an eyeshadow primer will prevent creasing and fading through the day AND it’ll help to conceal any initial redness or veins on your lids- so you can skip the concealer!
Our favorite (and best selling- seriously sells like hot cakes) is the Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Check out this video for more info on our choice:

I don’t know about you, but I looked in the mirror the other day and noticed my gorgeous summer tan had faded to a shade of gray! I knew just what to do ~ Hampton Sun Sunless Tanner to the rescue! While I was home watching some TV, I took a long luxurious bath, exfoliated, and the smoothed on a coat of Sunless Tanner. I waited about 45 minutes, and I decided to try a second coat of Sunless Tanner. Alas, I fell asleep on the sofa. When I woke up in the morning, I went into the bathroom and immediately noticed my gorgeous Bronze glow! The color was perfect. So natural. I love this product. With the hybrid gel/lotion formula It goes on smoothly without streaking, smells great and didn’t come off on my sofa! My legs looked amazing so off I went to work in a short skirt and boots, I had a skip in my step for sure!
