The Best Beauty Products That Will Help You Beat The Heat


It's safe to say the heat is taking a toll on the environment, our comfort, and our makeup routines. For the last three months, I had to shelve my full coverage foundation, mascara, and even lipstick because it just felt like it was melting off of my face as soon as I walked out the door.

With some trial and error, I've found a few complexion, lip, and eye products that feel light on my face while evening out my skin tone and masking my hyperpigmentation and making me feel #hotgirlsummer-ready.

Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner

Amazon

This isn't makeup, but the toner does help prep the skin for application. Some people can take or leave them, but this witch hazel has become my holy grail. It helps prep my skin in the morning and gets all of the grime of the day off at night.

Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector

Nordstrom

I was introduced to Becca's primer by a makeup artist. I'd given up on primer because I could never find one that didn't feel weird on my skin or that did what it said it could do. Well, Becca proved me wrong as the matte primer kept that shine away all day. I am not exaggerating.

$39

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

Macy's

There's a reason Nars Creamy Concealer is highly rated. The concealer comes in a tube-like package with a sponge applicator that makes over-applying hard to do. A little goes a long way with this product, and the coverage lasts all day.

$30

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

Macy's

Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer will always be a high temperature must-have because of its SPF protection and light-weight coverage. This is another product that you should take time to apply because you don't need much to get a fresh-faced finish with good coverage.

$46

Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15

Macy's

If wearing only concealer and a tinted moisturizer leaves you feeling naked, Bobbi Brown's waterproof, oil-free weightless foundation is my recommendation. The foundation offers buildable, medium to full coverage without feeling cakey. Bobbi recommends applying with a sponge and pressing the foundation lightly into the skin to get a natural, flawless finish.

$50

L'Oréal True Match Super Blendable Foundation

Amazon

I have always had a complicated relationship with drugstore foundations because finding a color match was impossible, but L'Oréal True Match is a foundation that never disappointed. The oil-free, non-comedogenic formula gives nice coverage without feeling too heavy.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow

Macy's

Laura Mercier does skin-like makeup products better than anyone. If you haven't given this powder a try, you should. It's light, pigmented, and absorbs oil and you won't have to repurchase for a while because it lasts forever.

$39

CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara

Amazon

I've been using LashBlast since I was a teenager and it has been a staple in my bag ever since. Whether you're dancing at a festival, crying at your best friend's wedding, or kickin' it at a family barbecue, this mascara will make your lashes look great without leaving any dark residue under your eyes.

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

Fenty Beauty

I gave the Fenty Beauty Shimmering Rose Nude Gloss Bomb a try for the first time in New Orleans, and I now understand the hype. Not only did the gloss hydrate my lips, but it gave them a natural, put-together look that I didn't have to worry about reapplying.

Skylar Marshai is known for her extravagant style, and her hair is no exception. But now, she’s giving her hair a break and focusing on hair care with SheaMoisture’s Bond Repair Collection. “I feel like my hair has always been an extension of my storytelling because I know it's so innately linked to my self-expression that I've been thinking a lot about how my love for crafting my hair into these different forms and shapes has honestly never given it a chance to just be,” Skylar explains.

What-is-the-gray-rock-method

Breaking up is hard to do. That’s the hook of a song from way back in the day, and as someone who has broken up with people before and had a few end things with me, I can certainly attest to that very fact. Thing is, when it comes to this particular topic, sinceI am also a life coach in the area of relationships, I do think that what can make a break-up so much more painful — or at least triggering — is how someone chooses to do it…and boy, if the gray rock method is not one of the most cowardly ones out here — WHEW.
