No matter what you eat, drink, or toast to this summer, these ModelCo lipsticks will last.
My least favorite thing about lipstick? People never realize I’m wearing any since it fades on my lips faster than a bad spray tan. And while dolling myself up for a summer night out is all part of the fun, the rigors of socializing are my lip color’s enemy. It goes like this: I swipe it on, and proceed to smear it all over a cocktail napkin. I swipe it on again, sip a dark and stormy, and watch my shade disappear faster than my drink. Even the boldest, most showgirl-worthy hues start to fade to a pale pink if I’m not reapplying every half hour.
Which is why I’m so pumped for ModelCo’s line of Party Proof Lipsticks, which some subscribers will be receiving in their July Birchboxes!
Sun damage, humidity, and dryness are no match for this restorative hair oil.
One of our biggest beauty hangups is dry, damaged hair. Aside from all the coloring, heat-styling and teasing that we normally do, we also spent the long July fourth weekend frolicking in salty waves and mushing our strands into every kind of bun imaginable. Our poor hair! It must feel like rockabilly singer Eddie Cochran hit the nail on the head when he crooned, “There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues.”
But, fortunately for our seriously distressed locks, we have found a solution: I.C.O.N.’s nourishing India Oil, which some subscribers will be receiving in their July Birchboxes!
There are a couple great upsides of my oily complexion: 1. no dry flaky skin most of the year and 2. an occasionally dewy appearance in photos. But one of the major downsides is that in extra hot and humid weather, no matter how much mattifier I wear or how many oil-absorbing sheets I have on hand, inevitably within an hour of being outside, I will be a gleaming glistening mess. And that means I can expect my fair share of breakouts coming very soon.
The one surefire way I’ve discovered to avoid seriously bad flare ups this time of year: using salicylic acid products. The latest formula that I’ve added to my regime is DDF’s acne control treatment and it’s one of the most effective that I’ve tried.
There are people that are fair and then there are people that are extra super fair. I fall into the latter camp, which means that blush is a non-negotiable part of my beauty routine. If I leave the house in the morning and forget to add a little color to my cheeks, I’ll have at least two people ask me, “Meredith, are you feeling alright?” The answer is yes, I feel totally fine, I just happen to be exceptionally pale, thankyouverymuch.
