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.

Summer Festival Ready Makeup Profusion - Mixed Metals Glam Palette & Swatches

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.

Life is hard. Figuring out what to eat can feel like a steep mountain to climb sometimes when you’re faced with this decision on top of the hundreds of other things you have to plan every day. You already have to plan and make a list when going to the grocery, so this is one of the easier times to think ahead. I usually sit down (or dig through the refrigerator and pantry) when the kids are at school and my husband is at work so that I don’t get interrupted. It allows me time to think without distractions (assuming there isn’t an animal puking, chasing a fly, or one of the kids isn’t texting me from school to bring something that they forgot).

Luckily, when it comes to most foods the family isn’t too picky about the brand and is willing to try new things that I bring home. I enjoy finding new brands to try, it keeps things a bit interesting. A couple of new brands I’ve tried recently in my quest to make gradual healthier food swaps in my home are Angelic Bakehouse and Wedderspoon®. [read more]

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. I tend to go lighter with my beauty products. I ditch the heavier moisturizer cream and opt for a lightweight moisturizer.

Show Your Mom Some Love

Teleflora® offers the most beautiful floral arrangements I’ve ever seen. Every time I visit their website there are unique new arrangements available with some of the most stunning designs and vase options I think that I’ve ever seen.

The bouquets I’ve received from them have looked just like what they show on their website and are big, beautiful arrangements. I think it’s an incredible value due to the quality vases and plants used. My cats sometimes like to get up on the table to sniff them (and they’re not exactly gentle about it) but the durability of the arrangement means I don’t have to worry about them ruining it.

I’ve gotten several Teleflora® bouquets to decorate my home over the last six months and have never been disappointed. My favorite part is that, even though the bouquets last for a long time, I found a way to get even more enjoyment out of them once some of the blooms start to dry out and fade…. [read more]

I’ll be the first one to say that I don’t take care of myself the way I should. Not for lack of wanting to but as a mom of four little ones six and under, I usually just don’t have the time. So I’ve been looking for ways to help me keep track of sleep, eating, and my everyday well-being. I usually try and make sure the kids are so well taken care of but I forget all about myself. So when I got the chance to try the GoBe2 by Healbe I was so excited at the prospect of something that goes everywhere with me and doesn’t take time away from my everyday life, it’s everything you need all in one place.
