Fixing Summer Beauty Mishaps

In the summertime you can face all kinds of beauty problems, from streaky self tanners to getting sunscreen in your hair. Fortunately I have some easy tips on how to conquer these issues in a flash.

If you were at the beach and applied your sunscreen but accidentally ended up missing a spot, cover your red sunburn mark easily with a swipe of concealer. Lightly apply a little concealer on the area in a shade that matches the rest of your skin and then dust on a yellow tinted powder to keep makeup in place and ease the redness. Try Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired By Carmindy Truly Translucent Powder in Neutralizer.

If you spent all evening flawlessly applying your self tanner only to wake up with an unsightly streak, there is a way to fill it in and even it out fast. Grab a Q-Tip and dab a little self tanner across the streak and let it soak in. This will even out the white spot and not darken the tanned skin around it.

Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo

If your hair gets a bit greasy at the beach because its come in contact with the sunscreen on your skin, grab a can of Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo and spray it on any limp strands. This will erase greasy hair instantly and make your hair smell pretty and beachy.

If you find that your foundation just balls up when you try to apply it after your sunscreen, then choose a foundation that contains sunscreen in it already. I like Lorac ProtecTINT SPF 30 — it gives you light coverage and full protection. If you want a little bit more coverage, try the combination I use every day– Skinceuticals Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 sunscreen, followed by my Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired By Carmindy Your Skin Makeup. This combo always works for me because it blends together nicely and keeps me protected.

So don’t worry, there is always a solution to summer’s little beauty mishaps.

Be A Beach Babe!

Calista Tools Activate Energy Activating Spray

I absolutely love that “day at the beach” summer look. A head full of tousled hair, a hint of rosiness on the cheeks and a sun-kissed glow that says sun, surf and summer fun can make you feel free-spirited and happy. Between work, kids and everything else, life can get pretty crazy for a lot of us. We may not have time to get seaside as often as we like but that doesn’t mean we can’t look like we just got back from the surf and turf.

To get a beach babe look, start with your hair. When you get out of the shower use a wave-enhancing product to get that awesome beach hair texture — I like Calista Tools Activate Energy Activating Spray. Mist this on damp hair and then scrunch your hair up and let it air dry for frizz free sexy waves.

If you want your hair to smell like the beach as well as look like you’ve been there all day, try Kevin Murphy Hair Resort. It contains crushed bamboo for texture and coconut oil for a tempting tropical scent.

Carmindy Sheerest cream blush

Keep makeup simple and natural. Apply a tinted moisturizer mixed with a little bit of bronzer on the temples, forehead, along the sides of the face and under the cheekbones to give you a bronze, sat-in-the-sun-all-day glow.

Next, use a cream blush like Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired By Carmindy Sheerest Cream Blush in Rosy. Smile big and apply with your fingers in circular motions to the fleshy apples of the cheeks. The sheer watercolor-like formula is super light and looks totally natural.

Apply black mascara and keep lips nude with just a slick of balm and you will look as if you have been frolicking in the sea all day!
