Episode 14: MAYbe It’s Maybelline: Or MAYbe It’s Something Else

The weather is getting hotter and that means our beauty routines are getting lighter. With the heat wave of the next few months fast approaching, we’re ditching our heavy winter products and replacing them with our favorite easy, breezy picks. Whether you’re looking for a way to freshen up your hair, face, skin, or nails, we’ve got you covered in this week’s episode!

 

Hair

  1. Moroccan Texture Spray. This spray is phenomenal for holding curls and giving your hair a lil grit to get that infamous beachy wave look we all seek this time of year. Use this to give your roots all the help they can get during the upcoming sweltering heat.

  2. Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Spray. Say that 10 times fast. This light spray feels like a leave in conditioner, works like a hair spray, and smells delish, so really, what more could you want?

  3. OGX Coconut Milk Serum. Show some love to your dry, damaged hair by giving it some extra hydration as temperatures rise.

 

Face

  1. Marcelle BB Cream. This BB cream has just enough tint and just enough coverage for everyday wear when the sun just wants to melt all the makeup off your face.

  2. You know how in the summer you get sweaty and your eye shadow gets creased in your eyelids? We hate that. Avoid this faux pas by using Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion and thank us later.

  3. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick: Sassy Mauve. If you want to channel your inner “Sassy Texas”, rock this color for a little added pop to your everyday color. This lipstick feels like wearing butter and lasts for hours, so it’s a double-whammy.

  4. Origins makes great lipstick and blush, this we know. KB is partial to their lightly tinted blush and Tea Rose lipstick, which gives your natural lip color a little boost.

  5. Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter. If you want to look like you sat outside in the morning as fresh dew fell on your face, use this highlighter to achieve your dreams.

 

Skin

  1. Show your skin some love in the sun with Bare Republic Sunscreen and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer. Bare Republic is a delicious smelling coconut mango gel that doesn’t feel sticky and Kiehl’s gives your face hydration and protection as you go throughout your day.

  2. Origins VitaZing Tinted Moisturizer is a tried and true fave all year long, but we love the SPF it gives you this time of year.

  3. Origins Ginger Souffle Whipped Body Cream. Whatever scent you need to motivate you to moisturize, you do you, boo.

 

Nails

  1. OPI “The Berry Thought Of You” Rock those sandals with a berry fun pop of color on your toes.
