So I'm SURE people are wondering how I'm planning on staying so fresh and so clean this summer, living in unpredictable hostels and out of a suit case...
Here are my summer beauty necessities
Advising and Detoxifying Yogi Tea.
Hot and plain or cold with lemon and mint!
Well manicured nails always make you look more polished, I'm pretty positive I will be sporting these hues all summer...
Sparitual in, enlightened soul
Sally Hansen in, all fired up #550
Zoya in, Tobey
Weather your bumming around in cargo pants or strutting your stuff in bodycon, smelling like a fantasy is always a good idea.
Note exhibit A) mini perfume bottles that are lip balm sized and most importantly...carry on friendly.
Vintage Balenciaga bottle that I found in Italy and filled it with the childish but intoxicating fun Betsey Johnson. Perfect for partying.
Lolia, In Love. Classic, elegant, feminine and subtle. Every time I put it on my mind time travels back to beautiful memories. Perfect for wearing to art galleries
YSL Elle, my mom thew a couple of these in my stocking a few years ago for x mas and I've had a weakness for the mini bottles ever since. Strong, aggressive, sexy and mature, perfect for trapping unsuspecting victims in lounges.
Beach bumming essentials
Avene Antirougerurs, Jour in, 20 SPF. I am a big advocate for sunscreen, once that sun comes out, be sure to apply SPF to you face on a daily basis, and not just at the beach. Don't forget your neck either, or else you will have jowls as big as a bulldog by the time your 40. Woof.
Bio-oil, is one of my favourite products, I use it for everything. It's a great substitute for lotion, when your just out of the shower or after a long day in the sun. I use it sparingly on my face when I need a moisture kick, and lay it on thick when it comes to stretch marks and scars. I find it really helps even out my skin tone. I even put it on the ends of my hair when they are dry. Like I said, I use it for everything, a true summer necessity.
Oscar Blandi dry shampoo, this stuff is great event through I am a brunette. I find you just have to brush/ rub it into your scalp really well to get rid of the ashy-ness, so you don't look like you have a major dandruff problem. All in all, this product is perfect for sprucing up your locks, especially when you want to rock those unwashed, beach waved, tresses of yours.
Evian Brumisateur , facial spray. I get made fun of incessantly when ever I whip this out at the beach but I don't care, its handy, always cold and incredibly refreshing when sun bathing.
Lobello Classic care, crusty lips are never attractive...
Products to have in your bag for when you are lounging pool side... lets say at lake Como... ( I wish)
Dior in , Beige Dentelle, creamy and glamorous
Benefit, high beam, prefect for highlighting your cheeks and eyes without having to apply any other makeup
Michael Kors, leg shine classic. Takes scaly legs, to silky stems in seconds.
Maybelline NY, great lash waterproof. This is the best mascara. Believe me I've tried it all from Dior, to Lancome to Bad Gal Lash. It's been in my makeup kit since I was 13, I always have the regular and the waterproof on hand.
La Fresh, deoderant wipe. Perfect to throw in your purse on a hot day to assist you with keeping so fresh and so clean. Awesome for long red eye flights.
Lets call this set London Party Girl
Duo, lash adhesive. Bare none, the best lash glue, your crazy if you use anything else.
Kiko eye shadow #138
MAC, lash separates. Perfect for adding drama to your lash line with out looking like one of those caked lash girls, who spend fifteen minutes applying 90 layers of mascara.
Tweezerman, tweezers. They are worth the 30 bucks that's all I'm going to say.
Lise Watier, Duo shadow and glitter in smoky silver
Chanel Rouge Allure, in Genius. This is my favourite lipstick ever I wear it year round but it looks especially great with a tan.
Mac eye shadow, in swimming
So weather you get your nails done by a lady named Ling Ling or you paint them your self, cheers to makeup and things that make us feel like a milli. when your wallets really filled with pennies. And remember, not to quote Gwen or anything... but you will always look "bitchin' in love".
