Beat the heat beauty

When it comes to warm weather makeup, less is more!Beat the heat with these fresh-faced favourites designed to keep you looking marvelous instead of melted!

• If you’re prone to midday oilies, wash with a skin balancing cleanser such as Avon Solutions Complete Balance Cleanser.

• Skip foundation and opt for tinted moisturizer with SPF. We love Get a Tint Tinted Moisturizer Lotion SPF 15 by mark.

• Conceal away imperfections with a lightweight concealer such as Avon Smooth Minerals.

• Fake a sun-kissed glow with a gentle sweep of bronzer. Bronze Pro bronzing powder by mark, is a naturally glowing choice.

(Hint: Powder makeup has a tendency to darken as the day wears on since the powders mix with your skin’s own natural oils, so be sure to use a light hand when applying bronzer. This will keep your skin from looking orange or unnatural.)

• Go light with lipcolor, too. Avoid bleeding lipstick and choose a lip stain / gloss combo such as Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain by mark. The result is fresh, natural and wears well even in the heat.

• And last but not least, stock up on blotting papers and always keep them handy in your tote! Our fave? Cheat Sheet shine blotters by mark. Once you start using these, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without them!



The perfect blowout.

Do you often wish that you had the time and money to spend on a professional blowout each week? Now what if we told you that you could get a smooth and silky salon style finish at home. Well now you can! Blowdry your hair like a pro in 5 easy steps:
1 Wash and towel dry hair with a smoothing shampoo and conditioner such as Advance Techniques Moisture Sleek

2 Apply a small amount of smoothing serum evenly through wet hair. We like Advance Techniques Moisture Sleek Smoothing Serum.

3 Divide hair into sections and pin atop your head. Then begin blowdrying section by section using a large barrel brush, pulling hair taught as you dry. Advance Techniques Smart Styler Large Barrel Brush features an aluminum core to help dry hair even faster! Continue the process till all strands are dry.

4 Seal the look with a blast of cold air – most blowdryers feature a cool setting option.

5 Then smooth away any flyaways by warming a dab of the Moisture Sleek Smoothing Serum between your hands, then gently smoothing over the trouble spots.

And voilà, smooth silky hair is now yours!
