The sun is definitely heating Summer 2012. So I have to pull out my summer essentials….
1- Grendha thongs: I have to keep my stilettos and boots in their boxes because this summer it is all about comfortable cool footwear. Perfect for the beach, road trips, malling, to be paired with shorts, sundresses or bikinis.
2 – Lipgloss: Less color, more shine – that is the motto for your summer lips. Ditch the matte dark colored lipsticks and have any generic (preferably hypoallergenic and with spf, though) lipgloss for your lippies. This one is a Clinique Lipgloss in Cosmic Pink, I borrowed (permanently, hehe) from my niece….
3- Carried Away Shimmer Mist : This will cool you this summer. Spritz on this allover your body and you will be smelling citrus-y summer fresh. My fiance love it when I wear this one.He said I should wear this all year-round. But this mist is just a summer fling for me, hehe… Rub it allover your exposed body too for a sparkling skin. You will definitely shimmer under the summer sun.
4- Nivea Sun Deep-Tanning Oil Spray 6 Low– Sunscreen is a must for summer. Unfortunately for me, when I go under the sun, when I darkened I turned into an unflattering grey. So to remedy that, I just don’t put on the regular sunblock but I put on a tanning spray/lotion to make my skin look more golden. I envy our morena sisters for their year-round golden tan. I wish I was blessed with a gorgeous complexion like that.
5- Careline Mineral Eyeshadow (Party Time & Cheer Dance/ P99 each): Summer does mean less make up. You need to put on less or no foundation because it will just melt off in the heat of the sun. But it doesn’t mean a colorless face. Summer is also a perfect time to get bold with playful eye colors. Bright colors like greens, yellow and aqua blues. Summer is about being playful. So go crazy with your eye colors.
6- 8-way Bikini (P750): It is time to hit the beach. No need to carry a lot of bikini when you can get different designs in one bikini. This bikini can’t be worn in 8 different ways. How great is that! To order: Go to your facebook and add as a friend: Colorful Bazaar and order. As simple as that.
7- Blistex Liptone: We also need to protect our lips from the sun. Lather on this lipbalm that has spf 15 and has a perfect touch of color similar to your lips
That is it for my summer essentials for 2012… What’s yours?
