It's time to face reality—summer is (pretty much) over. I know, right? Wasn't it just yesterday I was writing about summer and how much I loved living again?
After months of carefree living in nothing more than flip flops and little dresses, it's time to start thinking about fall clothes and make-up. Thanks summer, for being awesome—from BBQ's to concerts to pool parties and a trip to Greece, it was amazing. But now, I have some shopping to do! (I love September, and not just because it's my birthday month.)
Boots, sweaters, jeans, and some new make-up will help you bring your fall look together.
Fall is the perfect time to experiment with new beauty products, trying on different shades, and doing something a little different with your hair, or even just giving your hair some much needed love—after all, if you spent all summer in the sea and in pools, your hair is probably damaged.
It's easy to keep your daily beauty routine simple enough so that you won't be rushing in the mornings getting the kids ready for school. We all lead hectic lives, so we should simplify things where we can.
My go-to beauty products are Pantene, COVERGIRL, Olay and Venus. Hair, make-up, and smooth skin—and I'm out the door! (Oh, and here's another great thing—all these product are available at you local WalMart, so one-stop shopping with save you time, too!)
Here are some tips on simplifying your beauty routine:
1. Easy hair care: Wash your hair with Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner, especially after a summer in the sun. It helps repair sea-salt and chlorine damaged hair, making you hair strong, shiny, and healthy again! To get rid of frizz and help keep you hair under control, use the Pantene Pro-V Stylers All-in-One Styling Balm. It does it all.
2. Clear skin: The best accessory is your smile. Your second best accessory is your clear skin. Make-up looks best on clean skin. The most important thing to remember is no matter how tired you are at the end of the night, wash your face! I love Olay Total Effects Refreshing Citrus Face Scrub. Follow up with a great moisturizer, like Olay Total Effects Featherweight Moisturizer, which is light-weight and includes an SPF for added protection. (These skin care products are perfect for teenagers and young adults just staring university, and they are affordable!)
3. Less is always more: If you're playing up your eyes (who doesn't love a great smoky eye?) keep your lips simple with a light shade of lipstick or lip gloss in a neutral colour. Alternatively, if you're going bold with your lips—like wearing a nice dark red or pink—keep your eye make-up toned done.
