Summer Beauty Essentials

Kerastase Shu Umera Benefit Oribe Smashbox Summer Beachy Azur West
With the summer season upon us (43 days to be exact), many of us switch up our beauty regime to better suit the change in climate. Along with the warmer temps comes a more care-free attitude and scaled-down prep time. Personally, I like to stick to a more minimalistic approach and use only the bare essentials. Thanks to my favorite Houston salon, AzurWest, I’m able to stay stocked up on all of my favorite Shu Uemura products that make-up my summer style! Here a some of my summer must-haves:

Beauty Essential Hair Summer Control Curls Smoothing
Kerastase Resistance Fibre Architecte to manage split-ends that come along with sun-drenched, beachy waves

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream with SPF 35 The importance of wearing sunscreen in the summer cannot be over-emphasized. This is my moisturizer, foundation, bronzer, blush, etc. Very light-weight too!

Brow Shaping Brow Defining San Francisco Benefit Fill in brows
Benefit Brow Zings Brow Shaping kit With thin eyebrows like mine, the more tan I get, the more my eyebrows disappear. Brow zings brings them back to life. Plus when you live near the Benefit cosmetics mothership, how do you not stock up?!

Shu Uemera Volume Maker Invisible Texturizing Powder I use this interchangeably with the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. For going out at night, I use this on the roots and set with the spray.
