Beauty Products to Help You Beat the Heat

I'm so excited to have the wonderful Sara Drury guest posting today! Sara is a hair and makeup guru in Lexington, Kentucky! Kentucky girls if you have an event coming up you NEED to get Sara to transform you! I have used her and have been beyond happy with the results. 

Everyone loves summer but the heat can do a number on our hair and face. If you're like me, you walk out the door with your hair and makeup done and then by midday you're a frizz ball from the humidity and your t-zone looks like an oil field. Not cute. Luckily, we have an expert like Sara to share what products are best to beat the heat!

Hello!  My name is Sara Drury and I'm a hair stylist and makeup artist in Lexington, ky. I am so excited to be doing a guest post for Brittany!
Here are some of my favorite products and tips to help keep you looking fabulous even in the heat of summer!

πŸ’„Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray . It will help control frizz even on the most humid days. Just spray to finish off your hair. It's not a hairspray, so it doesn't have any hold to it but it does have lots of frizz fighting powers!

πŸ’„Oil blotting sheets!  To help keep your makeup looking fresh during the hot days of summer use oil blotting sheets. As your foundation mixes with the natural oils in your face you can tend to get a little shiny. If you powder on top of all the oil and foundation you start to create a paste of makeup and oil. Instead grab an oil blotting sheet and dab the oily areas first. And THEN you can use powder!

πŸ’„BB cream. When I'm running around in the heat of summer I tend to skip heavy foundation altogether. I like to use a BB cream instead. It's great because it is lightweight and also has SPF in it!

At the moment I'm loving the Cover fx BB cream and Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream.

πŸ’„If you need a little more coverage and just cannot go without your foundation, try applying it with a Beauty Blender instead of a foundation brush. It pats it into the skin in a light thin layer and keeps you from applying too much.

πŸ’„If you're extra oily in the summer, like I am, you can spray your face with a setting spray to help add extra insurance that your makeup will last all day!

I love the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray for oily skin because you can use it as a primer and a setting spray. Other similar products are Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, Mac fix +, or Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix.

πŸ’„Eye primer
Eye primer is a must all year round but especially in summer months. Apply it under your eye shadow so it will stay in place all day. You won't have to worry about it creasing or running. I like to put a little under my eye close to the lash line to help keep my eyeliner in place as well.

πŸ’„Bronzer!  I try to keep my face out of the sun altogether. Wrinkles? No thank you!  So bronzer is a must in the summer months. It can give you that added color and make your eyes pop, your teeth look whiter, and give you an overall healthy glow. I like to hit the high points of the face--forehead, cheeks, chin and a little on the nose. You can even add it to your collarbone, dΓ©colletΓ©, and shoulders with a big fluffy body brush.

πŸ’„Liquid eyeliner Switch out your pencil eyeliner for a liquid eyeliner. It will stay put much better!

πŸ’„Before pool time: wet your hair and spray a little leave in conditioner in your hair. Your hair can only absorb so much liquid and if it's already full it won't absorb the pool water.

It will keep your hair in good condition and also keep blond hair from getting a green tint.

πŸ’„Sea salt spray It's perfect for beach or pool days or when you just  want to get that beachy look!  You just towel dry your hair,  spray some sea salt spray in and scrunch. It looks so cool and it's a way to give your hair a break from heat styling.

I hope that is helpful for you lovelies! If you have any questions feel free to ask away!
