Football season is in full swing, and in Michigan people take this game very, very seriously. Pro football is huge, and so is high school football. My goodness, our high schools even have a class called ‘Football Advanced Training”. Whether you are out tailgating at the stadium or hosting a game day at home, it’s far more fun when you are feeling glam. Here are four products sent to the BIZ that will help you get your glam on.
First up, if you are going to be outside you still need protection from those UV rays. Be sure to slather on sunscreen before cheering on the team, and what better brand for tailgating than Drunk Elephant??
I love Umbra Sheer Physical Defense Sunscreen ($42). It is made with raspberry seed oil, which gives extremely effective protection from the sun without irritating the skin. When it comes to being out in the sun, it definitely pays off to go on defense with skin protection.
You know you will be cheering on your team, so be ready with soft, smooth lips thanks to eos Visibly Soft Lip Balm Spheres ($3.29).
These ultra cute, super affordable lip balms have hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C so they leave lips incredibly soft and supple. Plus they are awesome conversation starters. Every time I use one people ask what the heck it is…and I am always happy to share! I don’t even know which one is my favorite, the delicious tingly Vanilla Mint or the creamy, soothing Coconut Milk. Trust me, you want to pick up one of these really neat lip balms. They are available at Target, Walmart, Ulta, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Drugstore.com and EvolutionOfSmooth.com.
The weather can still be pretty warm, and sitting in the stands can be a rather sweaty experience. Just pop a few Whish Deodorant Swipes ($8) in your purse, and you’ll be able to freshen up any time. With consistent use, these also inhibit hair growth – that’s a pretty nice side effect. You can find them at Nordstom.com.
Speaking of handy, Japonesque Pro Makeup Artist Wipes ($12.50 for 20 wipes) are the absolute definition. Stadiums and game stands can be grimy and dirty, and these wipes dissolve away dirt, not to mention makeup. They are great for last-minute touch-ups, and even better for wiping away the day after game time is over. The vitamin E helps to ensure your skin is all ready to be glammed up for the next game time. You can find these at Ulta.
With these four beauty necessities, every game day is a glam day. It’s everything you need to start with Friday Night football and keep on going through Sunday! – Lisa
