2016 ~ My Mid -Summer Beauty Must Haves

 I sit on my deck sipping a Bombay Sapphire & tonic with lime enjoying the early evening breeze and listening to the Corinthian Bells wind-chimes while my newly varnished nails dry, I’ve been thinking about the skin care products and cosmetics that I truly rely upon to get me through the heat and humidity of a Virginia summer without looking either melted or overdone. I’ve experimented with more products than I can recall, but this summer I’ve found these products are my “go-to” for everyday:

*  Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Cleansing System

* Philosophy Purity All In One Cleanser
*  Clinique Clarifying Lotion

* Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinal Treatment

* Aveda Tourmaline Brightening Masque

* Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35

            *   Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

            *  Bobbi Brown Coral Brightening Brick
            *  MAC eyebrow pencil

            * Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil " New Lover"

            *  Nars The Multiple Blush “Orgasm”

           *   Urban Decay Glide On Eye Pencil

           * Buxom Eye Shadows: Create Your Own Palette from 40 single

           * Aveda Color Conserve Daily Leave In Protection

           *  Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil

           *  Coola Organic Sunscreen Spray

Resources for these great products: (or your local Aveda store or hair salon) (or your local Sephora) (or your local Ulta)
