2018 Summer Beauty Favorites from Beauty Brands

 

We all know the summers here in Kansas can be sultry so I have partnered up with Beauty Brands to talk about my favorite summer beauty products that help me beat the heat!

Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream This one is a game changer it is super lightweight and helps moisturize your hair while creating a soft look for natural styles. This is the perfect oil to brush through your hair to help flyaway’s- do not use a lot it can make your hair greasy if you apply too much!

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray– With this heat I know I do not like to blow dry my hair all time so I use the Bumble and Bumble Surf spray to create a natural beauty look. You apply it to damp hair and let it air dry. I love keeping this in my bag to spray in my hair after getting it wet from the pool so all day I will keep the natural wave.

Luther clearly wanted to be in on the shoot as well.

 

Living Proof Restore Instant Protection- If you have never used a product to protect your hair from your heating tools I recommend this. It not only helps protect against the heat but as well against UV rays and humidity (Y’all the humidity here has been HORRIBLE so this will be your best friend!)

NYX Matte Makeup Spray– This matte spray provides a gorgeous shine-free matte finish that is very lightweight and ensures that your makeup stays put throughout the day/ night.  All you have to do is spray this over your face after you apply your makeup, it’s that easy!

Make Up Eraser– Do you ever struggle with taking off your makeup? I know I have. I ditched the makeup removers that burn my eyes and found my self the Make Up Eraser. I wish I would have recorded myself using this for the first time because my mind was blown. It removes EVERYTHING, waterproof mascara, eyeliner, foundation you name it! All you have to do is get it wet and wipe off your face to get a clean face, I of course then follow with my cleanser. To clean the Make Up Eraser  you simply throw it in the wash every week.

SuperGoop! Everyday Sunscreen- Ever since starting my blog I became more aware of my skin and making sure I am using good products especially ones that protect my face from the sun. I have been religious with sunscreen. This lightweight everyday sunscreen you can put on before applying your makeup. Plus is it is oil-free so it doesn’t make your face feel like it has anything on it! It’s a win, win! Protect your skin people!

Tart Lights Camera Splashes Waterproof 4-in-1 Black Mascara Last but not least, on the far right we have one of my favorite mascaras that stays on through rain, sweat and tears! It lengthens, curls and volumizes as well as conditions your eye lashes to give you stunning lashes. Perfect mascara for a pool day!

How I maintain my mane- Hair products

I have had many questions about my hair and I have not forgotten about them! I wanted to share with you a brand I use often and LOVE! Unite is a great brand that works with all types of hairstyles. Since cutting my hair and going a little darker than usual, Unite has helped maintain my hairstyle and color!

I see a lot of gals asking what to do about the brass tones in their hair all over social media! Well, this blonde shampoo will do the trick. When applying you want to use a small size (depending on your hair and how much you need to cover) Then  I keep mine on for about a minute or less because my hair grabs quickly to the purple. If you leave it on to long your hair will get a grey/ white tone but will fade within a couple days. The trick is to put it on your roots or the brass areas you are wanting to naturalize.  I do not apply this to my ends because they are already very blonde already.

They don’t just call it purple shampoo for nothing! This is the perfect solution when you want to brighten your dull blonde or brass tones!

I use the Purple shampoo about 2 times a week sometimes just once. The next time I wash my hair I am sure to do a hair mask or deep condition.

Their dry shampoo is a lifesaver! Do you know you should not wash your hair every day? I was in a habit where I was because my hair always got so greasy, then realized that is why it was.  The Unite dry shampoo has changed the game, perfect for when you are on the go, stay at home mom (shout out to my sister) and simply when you are running late in the morning to work!

The liquid dust is my favorite product to put in my hair when it is wet. I already have thick hair so when I apply this to my roots when it is wet it gives the areas that are not as thick some volume. If you are looking for more volume in your hairs life, this would do the trick!

OIL OIL OIL! I use to be so scared of using it because I feared that my hair would look greasy but the secret is that a little goes a long way. You just apply a little bit to your hands and apply it to your ends. Mainly I do this when I straighten my hair because I get little frills on the ends of my hair!

I have gotten so many questions lately one what hair products I use from the maintenance of it and the curling irons I use. I am getting ready to start some fun hair tutorials and would love to hear what you want to see!
