1. The ever-so-popular NARS blush in Orgasm. The pinky-peach color looks good on anyone. My all-time favorite blush.
2. NARS Illuminator in Copacabana. I love this highlighter. I dab it on my cheeks to give them a nice, pink, sun-kissed, pearly glow after I apply the blush or I mix it in with my foundation.
I've been using this all summer as my sunscreen. This cream really does melt into the skin. Plus it's non-greasy and won't cause breakouts. It is the #1 dermatologist recommended sunscreen filter in Canada and will protect you from burning and looking like these idiots.
Good old unglamorous Vaseline. It soothes my dry lips and the yucky flaky skin I have around my nose from blowing it too much. (I'm allergic to my cat.) I apply it year-round.
Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion. Celebs use this lotion on the red carpet. This stuff is the bomb and I'll tell you why! When I apply it to my bare legs if I'm wearing a skirt or shorts it gives my legs a radiant glow while firming and tightening the skin. Prtty Peaushun covers up minor imperfections and diminishes the appearance of cellulite, veins, and stretch marks. (A girl's best friend!) It comes in 5 different shades. I have it in Light but next time I'll be ordering a shade darker to give my skin a bit of color. In Canada I bought this from Fresh Picked Stuff and it shipped within 2 days. Watch this clip of fitness guru (and Gwyneth Paltrow's trainer) Tracy Anderson and the creator of Prtty Peaushun, makeup artist Bethany Karlyn, discuss this dream cream at around 1:50 in this video:
100% Pure Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. I bought this jar a few months ago at Planet Organic for about $13.00. Coconut oil is an amazing, hydrating moisturizer that prevents dryness, flaking, aging and sagging of the skin. I put it on my face and body every second day before bedtime. It's very oily and greasy when you first apply it- actually D. always tells me he could fry food off of my face when he sees me with it on -but after it sinks into the skin it's golden! And of course, I love, LOVE, L-O-V-E the smell! You can also use it on your hair to make it soft and shiny.
What are your summer beauty must-haves?
Okay, before I go I wanted to tell you I just finished Tina Fey's hilarious memoir, 'Bossypants' the other day. I loved it! Her funny stories and self-deprecating humor had me laughing out loud busting my guts. I only wish it was longer. It's a must-read! And speaking of books, who's excited for the movie adaptation of the novel 'The Help' that comes out in a few days?? Ahhh I can't wait to see it!
