Makeup That Lasts During the Hot Summer Months

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Sumer is quickly approaching and it’s time to bust out the best of the best. The products that are going to step up and last during the hot, summer months. I love being able to test new beauty products, but how many of them can really handle a Chicago summer heatwave?

Memorial Day has come and gone and with it the unofficial start of summer. Of course, if you live where I do, the melting from high temps in the 90s started about a month ago.  Summer doesn’t just bring the heat, it also brings the humidity. This means having fun in the sun requires a lot more work on my hair and skin. Luckily, I’ve discovered some new hot weather essentials to help me feel refreshed and ready to go.

As a makeup user, I’ve become familiar with plenty of brands–but as any simple trip to Sephora or Ulta will tell you, there are always more to find and explore! One brand that I’ve recently come across is Mally Beauty, a line whose creator has been a professional makeup artist for years (and worked with the likes of Jennifer Lopez). Mally–the founder and namesake of the brand–promises that her brand is cruelty-free and “high-performance” for women on the go (of which there are many!).

A great perfume, cleanser or face cream is the perfect little luxury that women can treat themselves to as the warmer weather takes over this summer. With all the responsibilities we take on, a little bit of pampering is a great way to take a time out and do a small thing just for us.

I know, everything else is higher on the totem pole than ourselves. I get it. I’m in that frame of mind more often than I like to be. But, never forget that nothing gets done without women forging our way through the day, directing the schedules and driving the kids and preparing the food, etc. for those around us. We deserve a break, too, a small moment in time to do something nice for ourselves…. [read more]

Refresh And Enhance Your Skincare Routine

Beauty Brite Disclosure

With every season change, I am reminded to evaluate my makeup and skincare products. I like to use products that work with the weather. In the winter, I tend to use moisturizing products that protect my skin at night. In the summer, I like to use fewer skin care products that allow my skin to breathe in the hot weather.

Being a beauty blogger, I receive a ton of products to try. Sometimes, I wish I had sisters or lived closer to my extended family just so I could share everything that I receive! Many times, I end up giving away a lot of products. I’ve shipped boxes home to my mom but that can get expensive. I’ve also given them to my husband to take to work with him.

When it comes to the beautifying process, a lot can be involved. Makeup, skincare, fashion…those are all key players in the stylish persona that is you.
