My summer beauty routine is short and sweet so that I can savor all of the moments this sunny season has in store while feeling my best. Even though I like to spend minimal time on my beauty regimen in the summer months, I still like to look refreshed and pulled together, so I’m always ready to go for impromptu barbecues and get-togethers. We are pretty much outdoors from morning till night, playing in the backyard, splashing in the pool and having dinner al fresco, so I don’t usually wear makeup, but this lightweight tinted correcting cream with SPF and UV protection gives just a little more than sheer coverage and doesn’t look or feel heavy. I love using this deep pink tint on my lips and cheeks with or without any other makeup. It just makes me look awake and energized, and the color is perfect on any skin tone. The one thing I literally cannot leave the house without, any time of year, is mascara. And I have been a die-hard fan of this one since it first came out. I have worn it every day for years now and I still continue to get questions about it and compliments on it over and over again. My hair, sadly, is the part of my beauty routine I spend the very least amount of time on. If you know me well, you know I don’t own (and have never owned…oops!) a blow dryer. True story. I air dry my hair after every shower and wear it au natural. So, that’s a huge time-saver (and strand-saver). But I recently stumbled on this in-shower styler and thought I would try it out to give my straight hair, with subtle waves, a boost. And there you have it. A simple, four-product beauty routine that is summer-approved.
