My Five Summer Beauty Essentials

I really hate wearing makeup at the beach. Maybe it’s because I spent years reporting in the hot and humid weather and sweating in a full face of makeup. If I’m at the beach with friends or even for a blog shoot, I stick to the basics. I totally understand wanting to put your best face forward, so I’m sharing my five summer beauty essentials. These items will help you look pulled together but won’t make you feel cakey or like you’re wearing a full face.

Why I Love Linen for Summer

Growing up in Texas, and living in Nebraska and Virginia for a few years, I’ve learned a few things about how to dress for the summer heat. The first rule is to wear breathable clothing. I cannot stress enough how important it is to check the fabric of the garment you’re buying. Polyester, which is what most clothing is made of nowadays, is not breathable. This means it’ll trap your sweat and make you hotter – a vicious cycle. That’s where linen comes in.

How I Keep My Lips Soft :: My Reset Routine

My lips are one of my favorite features. I love how they can express how you feel whether you’re speaking or with the lip color you’re wearing. I communicate and am a storyteller for a living, so it’s no surprise I love what our lips can do. However, they can be sensitive and if we don’t properly care for them; they will rebel by flaking and peeling. Even though I have run a very tight ship, I take time every night to properly care for my lips. This is how I keep my lips soft. There’s nothing wrong with setting aside time to reset, rebalance and put wellness first.  This way, whether I’m going for my signature nude or feeling bold with brighter colors, they are soft and moisturized. Since summer is officially underway, it’s even more important to properly care for our lips. I’m excited to partner with L’Occitane to share my reset routine for my lips.
