Friday Favorites: Favorite Summer Products

 Hey guys! Today is Friday Favorites so I'm going to talk about all of my favorite summer products that I used throughout the season basically every single day. These products not only are perfect for summer but for truly every season. Each product is brocken down with all of my thoughts.
I've raved about this product before in my top hair products under $10. In the summer my hair gets more damaged because I'm shampooing my hair more often because of sweating, swimming in the chlorine, etc. Loved this conditioner for everyday to prevent and reduce damage. And its cheap!
Due to the brutal heat and humidity in Texas, I had more clogged pores and breakouts than I normally would. This cleanser is a gel with 2% salicylic acid that foams when you add water and rub it on your face. The cleanser is for oily and acne prone skin. I have fairly sensitive skin especially when it comes to acne products and this product never bothered me. This product removes oil, dirt, and shine without striping the skin. Highly recommend!
 Mary Kay Subtle Tanning Lotion (no longer available)
I'm so sad this lotion is discontinued because it's a gradual tanner but its subtle so you never had to worry about streaking. It smells amazing too! It's perfect for maintain a true tan or using it just on the legs to add a glow.
I've used this CC cream as my moisturizer, primer, and foundation getting ready in the morning. I loved using this alone for quick coverage or applying it before my actual foundation for a little extra coverage. It has a pump which I love because it's easy to control how much product you want. This CC cream is basically like a tinted moisturizer but with more benefits. This little tube of product protects, brightens, corrects, minimizes redness, conceals, hydrates, reduces the visible signs of aging, and defends against free radicals! This product is suitable for all skin tones but I never use it without setting it with powder to cut out any shine and to lock it in place.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Tip Tuesday: 3 Beauty Tips for Mature Skin

Happy Tip Tuesday! Here are 3 tips for women of mature skin...

1) Skip intense/chunky shimmers and glitters. This will only enhance your fine lines and other imperfections. However, do not completely avoid them! As you age, your skin gets more dull, therefore, adding subtle/ sheer shimmers can brighten the face making it appear more youthful. 
Try this: Apply a shimmer shade right under the brow bone. This will open up the eyes and appear more lifted.

2) MOISTURIZE. This will plump up your skin- especially before applying makeup!

3) Liquid over powder. Powder is more likely to settle into fine lines. Try Mary Kay's TimeWise Luminous- Wear Liquid Foundation. This has a subtle dewy finish, it's infused with Vitamin E and age fighting peptides, while reducing the appearance of skin imperfections. Theres 23 shades to choose from!

4) LIPS- Choose a lip color a little darker than your natural lip color but nothing too dark. Also, don't over line your lips or choose a dark lip liner. All of this can cause your lips to look to perched, emphasize your lines, and make your lips look smaller. Try a moisturizing lip color with anti aging benefits like Mary Kay's True Dimensions Lipstick. Tuscan Rose is a great color to brighten the face that's not too dark.
