Summer Time!

It is finally (unofficially) Summer. Summer is probably my favorite season, except for when it gets above 85 degrees. But I love the sunshine and spending so much time outside - with friends and family at the beach and at the pool, eating out - and just feeling overall better.

Just as our clothes allow for the heat, we must change the products and type of products as well as our colors to adjust for the warmer weather too.


My entire beauty routine changes up for the Summer. My moisturizers are lighter, sunscreen is applied in higher dosages, faux tanning is an almost everyday necessity, and not just my makeup colors change, but the amount and type of makeup I wear changes for sure.

With this unofficial start of Summer, stay tuned for my new product recommendations and reviews for the warmer months. 

Does your beauty routine change up during the warmer months? What do you differently?

Lancome Brazilian Earth Colors by Daria Werbowy.

Lancôme spokesmodel Daria Werbowy has created a new and exclusive to Sephora Collection of Brazilian Earth Colors for Lancôme. 


The collection includes:

Color Fever Lipstick in Beige Caracaï, $26.00
Color Fever Gloss in Nude Prainha, $24.00
Color Design Eye Shadow Quad in Carnet de Velours, $45.00

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Centro Espacial Vik Muniz, a group that supports arts education programs for young adults in Rio de Janeiro.

The entire collection is earthy, yet bronzy - just perfect for Summer. The lipgloss is my pick, as it is the most gorgeous, nude lip color that is perfect on it's own or to tone down a maybe too bright lip. Beautiful!
