A few summer beauty essentials that won't break the bank
Here are my must have summer essentials for any girl on a budget.
With the summer the heat, humidity, and inevitably -- flat hair! A simple way to combat lifeless tresses is with a good teasing comb. Teased hair also is much easier to put in a quick updo, which is essential for getting out of your face when the temperature spikes!
AG BEACH BOMB
This tousled texture balm from Loxa Beauty is a summer beauty weapon. Scrunch some of this formula into damp hair and you're out the door! It gives you that perfectly beachy, bedhead texture! This site has some amazing beauty products -- it's made for hairstylists, so you know the products you're getting are legit, every time. I'm loving their 10 for $20 product list right now, too! (c/o)
GLITTERY-GOLD NAIL POLISH
I can't get enough of this glittery-gold polish by Morgan Taylor, also from Loxa Beauty. Perfect for 4th of July, I'm planning on a white mani with a gold accent nail! Like fireworks for your fingertips (c/o).
CAFFEINE VOLUME BY SALLY HERSHBERGER
This. Is. Everything. The ultimate styling prep. Hairspray, dry shampoo and volume booster all in one! Its hard to get my heavy hair to stay in tact, but this stuff is aerosol magic. It gives my hair amazing hold for updo's and curls.
One smell of these little soaps and you will be in heaven. They're gentle enough to use on both your face and body, and make your whole bathroom smell sinfully refreshing. They also come in customizable little gift sets perfect for weddings, showers, and any occasion in between! The best part? 20% of their proceeds help bring antiseptic resources to the people of Uganda.
NARS THE MULTIPLE, IN PORTOFINO
This stick will give you an angelic glimmer, and is an amazing alternative to blush in the summer. It's much lighter and I can't get enough of the peachy, dewy hue.
REVLON COLORBURST MATTE BALM
These little beauties provide some serious moisture and lightweight shine, with a pretty pop of color!
ALCHIMIE DAILY DEFENSE CREAM
In harsh summer weather, a great moisturizing day cream with built in SPF is essential. I love this lightweight, non-greasy formula from Alchimie. It's non-comedogenic, and has no yucky additives -- so it's perfect for my sensitive skin!
