The last few moments of Summer 2015 is the perfect time to re-evaluate your beauty needs. The changing season means the need for product to fit in that transitional period between 90 degree humidity and pumpkin beers over the bonfire. Here are 5 beauty essentials you need to know now.
Brocato Big Easy Volumizing Dry Shampoo brings life to post-Summer strands. The buildup of oil and dirt in the scalp is diminished with just a few sprays and toussles. Remember, don’t wash hair everyday to keep it at optimal health. Big Easy allows for fresh-looking hair in between washes!
Brocato Cloud 9 Miracle Repair Mousse is ideal for dramatic, bold looks like glamorous, old Hollywood curls. This mousse is unique in that it’s also a treatment; it’s loaded with nutrients and hair-conditioning ingredients for the most voluminous and strong version of your hair.
It’s still warm enough to warrant using long-wear makeup formulas, and for this, Prestige Cosmetics has you covered. Its Total Intensity line offers at least 8 hours of endless liner, lip, and shadow wear. Against All Odds Liquid Ink Eyeliner in BFF paired with Total Intensity Eyeliner in Fearless Teal is the duo that will get you noticed, giving you gorgeous, sparkling teal eyes. For a more subdued look, try Long Term Relationship Fierce Color Eyeshadow in Charmed with just a bit of Fearless Teal in the waterline — it will open the eyes with a pop of fresh color without being overdone. Pair either look with the ever-so-appropriate Total Wear Lip Crayon in Berry With Me for an on-trend shade that lasts and lasts.
New for Fall 2015 is Jane Iredale’s Ready to Wear Smooth Affair for Oil Skin Facial Primer & Brightener. This amazing multi-tasker eliminates oil, fights blemishes, and reduces redness. It plays well with other formulas, whether it be a moisturizer, foundation, or serum. No matter what is applied after or before this primer, it helps to prolong the wear time of face makeup while providing enough hydration so oily skins won’t over-produce unwanted sebum.
You can’t forget the TLC your body deserves, either! Your hands are one of the most used objects on your body, but rarely do they get treated with the same care as the face. Spa Sensuals by Peter Lamas is a 2-piece hand care collection consisting of Rejuvenating Hand Scrub followed by Intensive Repair Hand Cream. The light citrus scent is divine, and using both products after a DIY manicure really makes you feel like you’ve been at a spa. Hands tell age, so don’t forget to give them a little indulgence! (Bonus tip: try the Exfoliating Scrub on your lips. It’s effective without being irritating, and really perfects those puckers!)
So long, Summer, but just know this — with a few new beauty treats, it’s easier to say goodbye to you.
