Summer Date Night Look (Melt-Proof)

Summer is becoming a beast and while we want to spend time outdoors, there’s a true issue of our makeup melting off! Date night becomes a challenge because it’s still 80+ degrees in the evening and what’s a girl to do!? Here are my melt-proof trips for summer date nights. You might still get sweaty and some makeup might dissipate (we’re not using permanent paint here, folks), but you won’t look like this below. Hope you like the tips and find them useful. nbsp;   Skin Prep I start prepping my skin with Amazonia Skincare Active Reversal Treatment Daily Wrinkle […]

Part 2: Which Green Beauty Subscription Boxes to Consider

Welcome back! This is part two of a three part series on green beauty subscription boxes. As a, ahem, subscription box addict, I feel qualified to now impart my top picks. These are beauty boxes that consistently deliver a solid value for your dollar, as well as offering thoughtful item curation.

On extremely hot days aka all of the summer, I like to keep my makeup pretty minimal. I’ll do something simple during the day and dress it up at night with some eyeliner and a bold lip. This look is obviously pretty laid back and carefree. A few products and a few minutes and ta-da, you’re ready for a day at the park and in the heat! Base I started by applying Kari Gran Three Six Five […]
