Summer Essentials

With summer just around the corner, this is the perfect time to adjust your beauty routine for the rising temperatures.  My best advice is to embrace your hair's natural texture as often as possible (who wants to blowdry in 90-degree weather?) and to pare down your makeup (think gels & stains vs. powders & creams).  Here are some of my favorite affordable products that will help you survive the heat while still looking chic...

I need to try that Maybelline mascara. Pro make-up artists swear by it so why not give it a go?
