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.

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.

My Summer Beach Beauty Essentials

Hello my beautiful friends! I hope your week is going well so far. Since we are kicking off beach weather in Coastal Virginia, I want to share my beach beauty essentials. These are items I love to bring to the beach to keep my skin healthy and at its best. It’s so important to take your skin’s health very seriously. Take a little time to get your skin ready for the sun and you can enjoy your time soaking up that vitamin sea! There is nothing worse than coming home from the beach with sunburned, peeling and dehydrated skin. It’s not a good look and will most certainly age you rapidly. We don’t want that! Of course, in conjunction with these beach beauty essentials, don’t forget to drink tons of water to stay hydrated from the inside out! Now, let’s get to the essentials!
