Summer’s Best Beauty Buys


When the temperatures rises, the chances of you having a makeup meltdown gets higher, and so is the probability of an utterly embarrassing beauty disaster!  Far less than fabulous as you feel the heat on your face slowly melts your makeup and confidence away!

Here are my best beauty buys to keep my makeup in place this summer!

Amidst the scorching summer heat, my best bet to beauty and makeup is keep it to a minimum.  The old adage ‘Less is more‘ greatly applies here during warm season.  The more beauty products you have on, the more there is to slide off; the less products you have on, the less there is to slip off.   So instead of putting on moisturizer, sunblock, foundation, concealer, and powder you might want to use one product that has them all — a tinted BB cream!

Also, using a primer or a face serum before makeup can prevent your foundation or concealer from running.  During sizzling days, I prefer to use a face serum to keep my face hydrated and to keep my tinted moisturizer well adhered.  This Cargo Tinted Moisturizer has a lightweight formula that keeps my skin hydrated, provides a sheer, natural coverage and leaves a dewy finish.  It is also oil-free, water-resistant, paraben-free and has SPF 20 to protect my skin against sun damage.

However, if there is one product that I always, always have to wear – with or without sun – it’s got to be sunscreen!  Recently, though, the sunscreen that I’ve been using during colder months gave me major breakouts so I shifted to a mattifying sun cream that works as a full-time sun protector without the oily, greasy feel most sunscreens have.  It also gets absorbed almost immediately, is very lightweight, and doesn’t leave a white, pasty cream on your face.  (BTW, this also comes in tinted BB cream! Woohoo!)
