When I am out and about on a summer day, I need three things: something cute to keep my hair up and out of my face, a sheer foundation with SPF protection to keep my skin looking great, and a kick-butt lip gloss to brighten my look. Here’s my trio of fun, fashionable, and fantastic summer must-haves we were sent that I love for this season.
Since I have long hair, I am always searching for something cute when it gets hot and I need to get my hair up off my neck. A hair accessory as tiny as the Scunci Bun Wrap suddenly becomes essential.
Could that blue with white polka dot print be any more adorable? It looks totally picnic ready. The Scunci Bun Wrap is actually a wire encased in a pretty, gauzy fabric. It easily wraps around any ponytail or bun and looks fabulous, even if you are as klutsy as me with hair. These cute little wraps are found in drugstores like Walgreens or Walmart.
As you can see, the Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream in Light is actually more of a medium shade…unfortunately I don’t think those of you with very pale skin will be able to use this. (It only comes in two shades, Light and Medium.) But for the rest of us — hooray! It luminizes, evens skin tone, and protects from UV rays. I also find it to be incredibly forgiving. I slap this on using my fingers and it looks great every time. It is awesome.
The new Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss ($20) lives up to its name – this really is some legendary lip gloss. If you are a lip gloss girl, get yourself several of these STAT. The formula is incredibly moisturizing and silky, and it lasts longer than any other typical lip gloss I have tried. I think the shade Azalea is the quintessential summer color. Azalea is a bright melon pink that is very flattering and so wearable. It keeps its shine and has a great slip without any stickiness whatsoever. Be Legendary Lip Gloss comes in 16 different shades, but my recommendation is to make Azalea your first one!
