Jennifer's Sizzling Summer

Hello my loves!
I hope everyone's summer is going swimmingly. I teamed up with City Chic for a series of blog posts to maximize your summer fun in style. Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite summer makeup and skin care tips/products that keep me feeling fresh in the hot weather.

First of all, I think we all know how much I love spending time in the sun, especially hanging out poolside. I saw the Marrakech Kaftan from City Chic and l knew I had to showcase it. This gorgeous statement piece is an excellent addition to any wardrobe that can be styled for day time by the pool or a night out on the town. The bead detail and sexy sheer draped fabric leave you feeling like a goddess.

Naturally with amazing pool outfits, you also want your skin to feel comfortable and protected while you spend time in the sun.  The summer can definitely wreak havoc on skin from dryness to sunburns, sunscreen is always a must but sometimes a girl needs a bit more than just an SPF factor to feel totally comfortable. 
I have a few products that help me feel refreshed even on the hottest days. One of my favorite tricks for avoiding skin irritation is "Silky Underwear".

This product from Lush is excellent for keeping your skin dry and smooth. I definitely do not have a thigh gap so this product is excellent on days where I don't want to wear shape wear under a dress or skirt. I highly recommend using this powder and trust me your thighs will thank you.

My makeup routine in the summer is pretty minimal. My go to's are BB cream, which is a great product that primes, moisturizes, smooths, protects, and has a SPF factor (important). It is ideal when you want some coverage but don't want to feel weighed down from foundation. To keep the look fresh I add a touch of a nude/pink lipstick, a bit of brow product, and mascara. I loved this minimal clean look. I used benefit cosmetics roller lash mascara, hydra smooth lip color in "wing woman", and came fresh from their brow bar.  Sometimes less really is more.

I hope these tips help you have the most fabulous summer ever! Until next time loves!
