Wearing makeup during the summer can be a challenge, especially when you live in areas where it gets very hot and muggy. Even here in San Diego we can experience hot spells which can leave my face looking like a hot mess!
There are some makeup items that I can't do without during the summer and Anastasia Beverly Hills has come up with a few that I absolutely love...
Lash Genius ($21) - This is a clear topcoat to turn any regular mascara into waterproof mascara. When spending time at the beach or pool this summer, it's important to have mascara that doesn't smear or smudge. I tend to get raccoon eyes because my skin is oily, so Lash Genius is perfect for me. I use it to blend my real lashes into the fake lashes, which really does make the fake lashes look natural. My best friend couldn't even tell. She thought I was using Latisse to grow my lashes :)
Here's a video that shows how well Lash Genius works...
Seen and Be Seen Kit ($44) - Includes the Hydrafull Gloss in Heiress and Plastic, Illumin8 Eyeshadow Duo, and Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel.
The only downside to this kit is that you can only get the brow gel in this brown color, so I didn't even bother trying it. However, I LOVE the gloss and eyeshadow.
I've been wanting to try a bright pink lipstick, but was afraid that it wouldn't go with my skin tone. I'll settle for the Hydrafull Gloss in Plastic, though. The formula is just the way I like it - not too slick and not too sticky. What I like most about this gloss is that it actually stays on even after rubbing my lips together a dozen times, but when it does come off, your lips have that stained look and they feel hydrated.
