The weather is starting to heat up, beauties! We can’t wait for the summer sun, cocktails, maxi dresses and epic pool parties. We can’t enjoy all of the warm-weather fun without the right makeup, thought. There’s nothing worse than having a good time only to realize your makeup is melting because your T-Zone is getting oiler and shinier by the minute.
Fortunately, our friends at IMAN Cosmetics understand the necessity of a simple summer makeup regime. They gave one young beauty, Melanie, the perfect CC Cream for the summer that leaves her skin radiant, healthy and glowing. Find out more about IMAN’s Correct And Cover Cream that’s guaranteed to conceal and brighten any gorgeous face, in the video above. Plus, check out a few makeup tricks to add more glamour to your summer look!
1. The Best In Beauty Box Subscriptions
No one really knows who invented this monster idea of box subscriptions. Perhaps it came about once the fashion and beauty industry realized that in order to stay above ground during the recession, it had to reinvent itself. What better way than to create a monthly subscription service offering some sort of discount on a group of products we love and think we need. Let's examine a few of my favorites!
2. CURL BOX
Many naturalistas swear by this subscription. Some sit patiently in front of their laptops each month because they know there's a limited amount and it will sell out immediately. The Curl Box is a new naturalistas solution to finding the right products for her natural hair. For $20/month you can try samples of tons of products.
3. Glossy Box
This box is filled with luxe products. From fancy perfumes to the best in body lotion
4. BIRCH BOX
One of the first that I can remember on the market. For $10/month you get a little bit of everything in beauty. From high-end beauty brands (like Kerastase), to more common brand from in your local Sephora (like Stila), to even a few newbie beauty brands--Birch Box has changed how the consumer purchases
Curated by beauty's top Youtube Bloggers with a monthly theme, an IPSY subscription gets you 4 to 5 beauty products in a collectible makeup bag. The best part about this subscription might just be the makeup bag and the video tutorials on how to create each look.
7. BEAUTY ARMY
Once you complete the online beauty questionnaire, you get to hand-pick your samples. Brands have to actually apply to be a part of Beauty Army, so you can probably bank on getting the best of the best.
If you're an eco-beautinista, Goodebox is your source for sampling healthy sustainable beauty products. Each month, an expert curates a top-notch selection of six to seven trial-size green products.
