With the scorching heat waves that have been hitting the GTA, the last thing we want to do is put on a heavy face of make-up and hair products. But with that being said, it’s always nice to look and feel put together. Here’s a few tips to help get you through the next heat wave looking as chic & fresh as possible!
• Beautycounter Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer – no one wants to feel like they’re wearing makeup in the heat (but some of us also don’t want to brave a completely bare face either) which is why we’ve fallen in love with Beautycounter’s Dew Skin. This super sheer coverage tinted moisturizer is packed with benefits including SPF 20, Vitamin C to enhance brightness and Sodium Hyaluronate to promote firmer, smoother looking skin. We like to apply this product with our fingertips (just as you would your normal moisturizer) and add concealer to any areas that require a little more coverage. The end result – luminous plumped skin!
• Stila Convertible Color – this two-in-one lipstick and blush combo is a convenient and quick product to apply in the heat. The creamy and translucent colour is easy to blend and keeps you looking fresh and radiant. Apply with a brush or fingertips for a monochromatic look.
• Blinc Mascara – when applied, this innovative formula forms tiny water-resistant (aka sweat-proof) tubes around your lashes for maximum amplification and hold, rather than painting them like conventional mascaras. The tubes bind to your lashes and don’t run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes. Moral of the story – you can kiss those raccoon eyes goodbye!
• Mario Badescu Facial Spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater – the antioxidants filled formula is great for dry skin! This best-selling product helps to clarify with thyme extract, moisturize and rejuvenate skin with rosewater and is paraben-free. We cant stress more about how crucial a facial mist is! Facial mists keep you cool throughout the day, set and refresh your makeup, and keep your skin hydrated and balanced throughout the day. There’s one for every skin type out there!
Hair Wave Spray:
Ouai Wave Spray – your hair is going to get frizzy in the heat so why not just embrace it! Ouai wave spray is a weightless texture hair mist formulated with rice protein (instead of sea salt – which can actually dry out and damage hair). Spritz this on wet or dry hair to add hold for effortlessly chic undone waves.
