Start your summer off right by checking out this list of must-haves and favorite products!
TOM FORD Make-up Brushes: These are a little pricey but absolutely worth every penny. The stark white bristles are super soft and apply/blend products to perfection. They will keep you camera-ready from day to night! Bonus: if these bristles fall off the brush and stick on your skin, they aren’t noticeable!
NEON Nail Varnish: Neons are 100% back for Spring/Summer 2012. Wearing a florescent blouse might not be for all of us, but the perfect alternative is wearing a neon nail polish. Try wearing fuchsia with a nude sandal; it’ll leave you wondering why you never tried it before! I like ORLY’s ‘Cabana Boy’.
Supreme Moisturizer: Supple, glowing skin is a year-round essential. My all-time favorite body moisturizer is Avène Trixèra Emollient Balm (available at my McLean office). For the best results, use a sugar scrub (such as LANARI’s Best Ever Sugar Scrub) before moisturizing to get rid of any dead skin cells and guarantee your maximum glow!
Tweezerman Folding Ilashcomb: This is a dual-purpose makeup bag essential. Comb through eyelashes after mascara application to eliminate clumps and use to keep stray eyebrow hairs in line.
Bosica Blotting Linens: Some of us notice more oil (specifically in the T-zone) during summer days than we do in the winter. Keep blotting linens easily accessible and blot anytime you feel oily. There is a noticeable difference between shine and oiliness. Shine is a healthy glow and does not interfere with your makeup. Oil will breakup your foundation and face makeup during the day and it may seem as if your makeup dissolved. Blotting linens are most beneficial to oily skin.
