SUMMER Beauty Bargains

Summertime sizzles in more ways than one.  While trips to the beach, dips in the pool and season spawned up dos are summertime musts we look forward to, they can also leave your beauty routine in need of some serious relief.  Not to worry, these ten summer beauty bargains will leave your eyes, lips, skin and hair looking marvelous and far from a meltdown.

+ L'oreal Infalliable Eyeliner,  $9:  An effortless application and near flawless finish is what you'll get with this genius felt tipped marker.  Like your favorite fine tipped Crayolas from years gone by, this liquid liner skips the mess and will leave you admiring your masterfully made up eyes.

+ Super Stay Lip Color by Maybelline, $8:  Having tried nearly every stain, stick, liner and trick out there to keep color on my lips, I have come across the closest thing you'll find to permanent color.  While no product is completely bulletproof, this one keeps its promise to not wear off.  A few tips to keep in mind: Apply the color first and let it completely dry down before using the double ended gloss stick.  I sometimes even apply mine before the rest of my makeup.  Not only does this allow it enough time to dry but it also helps light up my face so I'm sure to never go overboard on blush or shadow.   Once the gloss has been swiped, your color will stay fresh well past lunchtime, all without stickiness, flakes or cracking - just lovely lush lips.  Enjoy!
+L'oreal Paris Infalliable Le Rouge Lip Color, $10:  A Cannes film featured product, this L'oreal lip color provides lush intensity, perfect for rooftop cocktails on sultry summer nights.  One swipe hydrates and infuses lips with rich and creamy hydrated color.

+MAC Mineralize 'Apres Chic' Skinfinish $29:  A soft, dewy finish is what you'll get with this velvet touch mineral based powder from MAC.  Infused with soft metallic flecks,  Mineralize is the perfect finishing touch for those magical summer night moments you're sure to enjoy.  
+L'oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur $25:  Primers are a must-do all year round and never more so than in the summer.  Keep your makeup looking fresh all day long by beginning your routine with a smooth, fresh canvas.  Make up lasts longer and color stays true when it's applied to an invisible barrier that separates skin care from cosmetics.  Still, making this good thing great, is the added bonus of this invisi-cream's ability to blur your skin into soft-focus.  Beautiful perfection.
+Tarte BB Cream $34:  What happens when skin care and coverage combine?  A BB cream is born.  Tarte's BB Cream benefits skin with antiagers, sunscreen, primer qualities and hydration all in one simple swipe.  With the option for buildable coverage and a variety of shades to choose from, this take on the latest in skincare-makeup fusion is a summer skin saver.

+Sebastian Shaper Plus Hairspray $17:  Hot and sticky weather can have you reaching for a keep cool up do.  Whether it be a braid, bun or pony, just washed hair has a hard time holding the look.  An easy answer?  A few sprays of this super dry, never tacky shaping spray will do the trick to hold your style and keep frizz at bay.
+Ojon Volumizing Conditioner $23:  A lightweight conditioner that performs the summer magic trick of adding volume, shine and suppleness to fine and frizz-prone locks.  Infused with Ojon oil, it is 'nature's hair-repairing golden elixir' and wow does it work.  Give it a try for lavish volume and major manageability.
+Suave Humectant Moisture Shampoo $3:  Touted as 'working as well as' well-known big brand names, this line of shampoos, conditioners and stylers has yet to disappoint.  It's doubtful it ever will.  With price points often under the three dollar mark, these drugstore do-it alls are definitely worth your time and money.
