Why we love them?
- Grande- Lash MD is one amazing lash conditioner that promotes healthy, longer and fuller lashes in only 4-6 weeks. We have tried several lash conditioners on the market and we find that Grande- Lash MD differs not only in its award winning results but also in its ingredients. This lash conditioner contains a blend of vitamins, peptides and amino acids that promote youthful results, perfect for summer time when you are beachin’ and don’t want to be worried with mascara.
- Colbert MD Soothe Night Cream is key for your summer beauty regimen. This rich night cream works like a dream in that it calms inflammation, reverses environmental damage to your skin and promotes natural healing. We love the texture of this cream, it feels ultra luxurious and silky but not too heavy! The soothe night cream is infused with a unique triad delivery system that gets nutrients to all layers of the skin timely to promote softness and improve pigmentation. We love that this cream works over night to repair and hydrate our skin after a long day sitting pool side.
- Osea Advanced Protection Cream is a summer staple that we have incorporated in our daily regimen. All natural, vegan, gluten, paraben and sulfate free, Osea Skincare uses only the highest quality ingredients in their products to promote beautiful skin, the healthy way! The advanced protection cream is awesome in that it contains Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline to stimulate natural collagen production and even out skin tone. We also love its anti-aging effects! This face cream helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while firming and toning at the same time. We like to apply this cream in the morning before our SPF.
- Looking for the perfectly pigmented matte lipstick for summer? We have you covered! LORAC’s Alter Ego Lipstick is beautifully opaque and comes in so many gorgeous colors for a stylish summer look. We love a bright pout to sport at the beach, cook out or even pool side with your favorite swim suit and braided do. The alter ego lipstick is full of rich ingredients such as acai berry, pomegranate, and Vitamins C and E that makes your lips feel super smooth and healthy. We are obsessed with a coral lip this summer and love the shade Girl Next Door– a must have!
- Voluminous healthy hair is a must this summer! Whether you’re wearing a chic pony, messy braid or high shine blow out- volume at the crown is where its at! We love the weightless volume that the Muroto Volume Collection gives our strands. Our hair feels super soft and manageable and we are giddy that this volume actually lasts, ideal for hot humid days when the heat is making those tresses flat! We are obsessed with the volume masque- and notice that it has helped give our roots that needed lift and boost!
- Have you checked out Ittsē cosmetics yet? If you haven’t- you must! Ittsē offers customizable shadows that are perfect for organizing your favorite looks in a chic magnetic palette. We love how silky their shadows are and that they blend so smoothly for a natural look. Their shadows come in a wide array of colors and three different formulas- sparkle, matte and pearl. Perfect for summer, our favorite day to evening curated collection is Le Mystere. We love that you can create a super soft shimmery eye for day and chic smoky eye for summer nights on the town!
- Osea Ocean Cleansing Milk is ultra gentle and works to reduce redness and inflammation. This is much needed after a day at the pool or on the beach when your skin has seen a little too much sun! We love that it is soothing, hydrating and leaves our skin feeling soft and balanced.
- LORAC’s alter ego lip gloss is a must for summer evenings and weekend day trips. Beautifully pigmented with just the perfect amount of shine- you will be sure to find your favorite nude or pop of color in LORAC’s large variety of shades! We love that this gloss is not too sticky and wears well over lipstick. Our color of choice is Southern Belle. Pair it with the Alter Ego Lipstick in Girl Next Door for coral perfection!
- All of your summer essentials need a safe keeping place. Adornlee’s, just love travel bag, is the perfect accessory to hold your beauty favorites. It is made with heavy duty canvas and beautifully lined for the highest quality. We can’t enough of their super cute quoted travel bags that are the perfect companion to toiletries and cosmetics. It could even double as stylish clutch!
- BVLGARI’s Eau Parfumée au thé rouge is hands down our favorite scent for summer. It is captivating and sensual with notes of red tea, fig pulp, pink pepper and orange. We have gotten so many compliments on this fragrance and are so happy with its ability to last all day!
- Ittsē’s bronzer in St. Barts has won our hearts! We love the subtle shimmer and beach glow that it gives our skin! It blends well and leaves our skin looking perfectly sun kissed without looking orange. Did we mention that all Ittsē products are paraben-free, gluten-free and are never tested on animals? #Ittseforthewin!
- We do not leave the house without applying LORAC’s color correcting cream! We love this product for summer time because it is much lighter than the normal foundation and works to even out skin tone and hide imperfections. It is silky smooth and looks super natural for perfect summer skin. This tinted makeup neutralizes, primes, moisturizes, brightens, soothes and reduces unwanted redness while working to diminish fine lines- one amazing product!
- The Sea Vitamin Boost from Osea is ideal for sun exposed skin. It hydrates, soothes and protects your skin while nourishing with its pomegranate and red wine extracts. It also has many anti-aging benefits that work to stimulate cell renewal. This is the perfect pick me up to refresh and recharge your skin through out the day!
