The Beauty Brief

The Beauty Brief // via South by Northwest

Hello beauty lovers! I’ve been dutifully playing with products all month so I can share my findings with you guys. This month’s roundup is all about laid-back summer beauty, from the triple threat face spray to the hair styling creme that will make your morning routine a million times easier.

Bumble and bumble Don't Blow It Creme

When it’s 95 degrees out, the thought of blow drying my hair makes me want to weep. Enter Bumble and bumble Don’t Blow It Creme! Spread a dollop evenly through towel-dried hair, twist into a loose bun (or twist hair in sections around your fingers, then let it hang loose) and allow to air dry. You’ll get body, texture and softness with virtually zero effort – always a big win in my book. I like to use this on weekends and days when I work from home since it takes a couple of hours for my hair to air dry.

Yes to Coconut Cooling Lip Oil

I actually started using this in the winter when my lips were super chapped, but Yes to Coconut Cooling Lip Oil is perfect for summer, too. That tropical scent! That refreshing coolness! In addition to being intensely moisturizing, it has a nice glossy shine…plus, it’ll only cost you a few bucks. Your lips will love it!

Coola Makeup Setting Spray

This stuff is technically a makeup setting spray, and it does the job just fine. But I bought it to use as a sunscreen and makeup refresher. It’s made with green tea, aloe, and hyaluronic acid, so it’s both soothing and moisturizing – and with SPF 30, it keeps your skin protected throughout the day. A spritz of this feels heavenly after being out in the sun for a few hours.

NARS the Multiple

Ah, the Multiple. Who among us isn’t obsessed? This multitasking cream stick is a summer staple; you can use it as a blush or bronzer, and some shades even work on your lips. My favorite is South Beach (pictured), which creates the perfect golden beachy glow.

What products are you loving right now? Anything you’re dying to try? Has anyone gotten their hands on the new Naked palette yet?

    • The Coola spray is so fantastic! It doesn’t sting my eyes, but if you have super sensitive eyes it might be a different story…? It is organic though, which is a plus πŸ™‚
