Get Summer Festival Ready

Get Summer Festival Ready

Beauty Brite Disclosure 

Summer is just a few short weeks away, and with that comes festival season. Whether you’re into music, food, or art, getting summer festival ready involves more than purchasing your passes. To help you create that signature look, I’m sharing some affordable options for makeup and hair.

Summer Festival Ready Makeup – Profusion Cosmetics

During the warmer months, I’m all about that lightweight, shimmer and glow. One makeup brand that helps me achieve this is cruelty-free Profusion Cosmetics. Established in Southern California, Profusion Cosmetics is all about providing affordable products that are on-trend and inclusive. No matter your skin tone, age or makeup level proficiency, Profusion has something for you.

The brand was kind enough to send me four different palettes/kits to try, including the Strobe & Glow Palette, Pro Face Professional Beauty Book, Eyes & Cheek Palette, Amber Eyes Palette, and Mixed Metals Glam Kit.

Summer Festival Ready Makeup Profusion - Glow & Strobe Palette and Swatches

Of the five palettes/kits, the two that were absolute standouts for me are the Pro Face Professional Beauty Book and Strobe & Glow Palette. What I love most about the Strobe & Glow palette is the diversity of colors. They work for every skin tone and highlighter tastes. I can go bold or create a soft summer festival ready glow with these beautiful shades and Pro Series Brush.

My second favorite is the Pro Face Professional Beauty Book. I love that this kit has almost everything I need to create a myriad of summer looks. It’s especially great for getting summer festival ready on the go. All I would need to add to my makeup travel bag is primer, mascara, foundation, concealer, lip choices, and few extra brushes. The shadows, blushes, and bronzers are very blendable and buildable. The highlighters are subtle and the brow products a tad ashy, but still workable.

Next up are the Eye & Cheek Palette, Mixed Metals Glam Kit, and Amber Eyes. While the products are nice, they weren’t my favorite. I had the most trouble with the Eye & Cheek Palette and Mixed Metals Glam Kit. The shadows and highlights in the palette aren’t very pigmented and a little hard to blend. The blushes are really nice though. I also wasn’t a huge fan of the brush in the palette. It blended well but didn’t apply product evenly.

I felt similar about the shadows in the Mixed Metals and Amber palette. I had several issues creating summer festival ready looks I would really love to wear. However, I think if you like soft eye looks, you would really enjoy the Amber Eyes palette. As for the Mixed Metals, I wish the metallics were as shimmery as the lip crème, which delivers an insane metallic payoff.

Summer Festival Ready Makeup – Tangle Teezer

No summer festival look would be complete without fabulous hair. Whether you choose to unless your inner Bohemian or glam Rockstar, high-performing styling tools are a must. All those braids, updos, and beachy waves can create a mess of tangles. Enter the Tangle Teezer.

This award-winning detangling brush uses a two-tiered teeth system to detangle without causing damage to your hair. The Tangle Teezer comes in a variety of options to suit almost any type of hair or style. I was sent the Original Wet & Dry Brush and the On-The-Go Detangling Brush.

Summer Festival Ready Hair Tangle Teezers - Regular and Travel Size

 

I use the Original Brush to comb my hair after I wash it. One of my favorite aspects of the Original Tangle Teezer is how it also provides a nice scalp massage. Because I have fine hair, I did have some issues with using it on the top of my head where my hair is a little thinner. I also wish they would create brushes for us lefthanded people. Although the brush is very lightweight, the ergonomic design is more tailored for the righthanded.

Summer Festival Ready Hair - Tangle Teezer Use

Of the two brush styles I received, the On-the-go is my favorite. It’s the perfect size for tossing in your bag to create those summer festival ready looks. Or when you need a give your hair a little extra boost of shine, smoothness or volume.

One of the best features of this brush is the bottom holder. It helps to keep your brush clean and the teeth from getting dirty or bent while in your bag. I also really love the bright patterns. The glitter and flamingos are just fun and unexpected. I know my little nieces would love them.

I don’t know about you but I love summer! I love the sun, the warm weather and breathing in the fresh air. Every spring and summer, I am reminded to change up my skincare routine.

How To Care For Press On Gel Nails

How To Care For Press On Gel NailsBeauty Brite Disclosure

I love getting my nails done, but my pocketbook doesn’t like it, so I’ve been doing press on gel nails lately.  Some brands are better than others, and I want to share one of my favorites, Super DX. 

Why Press On Gel Nails?

Being able to get press on nails to stay on for more than a couple days, is a chore but if you have a good brand, then it is a lot easier.  Super DX offers bold, perfect nails in seconds and all you need to do is peel, stick, press and go.  Yes, it is that easy.  Having a set of nails on just makes me feel good about myself, I know odd, but it is one of the happy things I like to do for myself.  I’m unable to afford to get my nails done in a shop but tell you the truth I like doing my own press on gel nails.

How To Care For Press On Gel Nails

Prep Nails

  1. File The Nails. If you want your nails to stay longer than you will need them to fit on your nail without touching the cuticle. If the press-on nail is touching anything other than your nail plate, then they will start to lift.  When that happens then, the nail will pop off!
  2. Push Back Your Cuticles. Pushing back and removing your excess cuticle is always a good idea. Once you’ve pushed back all of your cuticles, wash your hands thoroughly to remove all trace of the product, trim any hangnails with cuticle nippers, and you’re good to go.
  3. Remove Natural Oils. Wipe down with a prep wipe (Super DX they have it in the package) which is pure isopropyl alcohol, but pure acetone will also work. Please don’t use nail polish remover which won’t work and will cause the nail to lift too.

How To Care For Press On Gel NailsAppling the Press On Gel Nails

  • Find the correct size for each finger
  • Peel off and press on the bottom first.  For 30 minutes I keep pushing each nail down.  This helps a lot!
  • Wait an hour before doing anything with your hand, great time to read or watch TV.
  • Avoid Water! Use gloves when washing dishes or using water.  Washing hands I use hand sanitizer when I have my press on nails on. Taking a shower well needs to be done, now you can wear gloves, but I don’t.

When I do these steps my press on gel nails will stay on for a good week!  I like that time frame because after a week I’m usually bored with the color anyways.  Remember Super DX has exceptionally cool, quality, and affordable press on gel nails for you!  Check out their Spring and Summer Collections; I’m wearing BLUSH in the picture below!

I also received one from the Diamond Collection of oval-shaped, premium textured Nadeco press on gel nails. They are a bold and iridescent blue-green shade. 24 press on nails in 10 unique sizes for a perfect fit for most. Medium nail length so this is perfect.

During the winter and summer months, a high-quality lip balm is a must-have for me. During extreme weather, my lips get rather dry, and often times crack. This could get a bit uncomfortable for me, and I don’t always want to wear lip products when my lips get this dry. I’m always on the hunt for the next gear lip balm, and I truly think I’ve found it in the Bali Balm.

I have been a fan of mineral makeup for years now. I first tried mineral makeup soon after my son was born. I was searching for natural products to use because I was interested in removing chemicals and unwanted ingredients from our household and my beauty products. Back then, mineral makeup came in jars and it usually got all over the place! Now, there are more options when it comes to natural makeup!
